Some covers you just want to save forever. You want to coax them into an old applesauce jar with a twig and a leaf and some holes in the lid. Keep 'em on your nightstand until Dad comes home from six months on the road, and he's got a puppy with him. And you forget about the cover because you're always brushing Sandy and lobbing tennis balls for her. Until one day you push aside some junk on your nightstand and you see that old jar. And there's a Mothra in there.
So, here are some covers:
Morning Glories #2
Cover by Rodin Esquejo
Love the composition here. That choice to position the water level and camera as they are. It's claustrophobic up there. And of course, the kanted text, as if sunken and drifting, is ingenius.
Brightest Day #10
Cover by David Finch
Combining elements of pulp horror and dime novel western, Finch delivers a downright astonishing canvas. Though it's overcast, the daylight makes it even more chilling.
Amazing Spider-Man #643 (with #642)
Cover by Marko Djurdjevic
Does it get much better than a Djurdjevic mashup? No, it does not. If an orgy ever broke out in Artist Alley on a Sunday afternoon, Djurdjevic would choreograph.
Joe the Barbarian #7
Cover by Sean Murphy
Alexander the Great can suck it.
