Covers of the Month: August 2013

It is time for the Best Covers from the month of August. Over the last four weeks I’ve highlighted my Top 5 Comic Book Covers. Now it’s time to crown the overall winner in a variety of categories! If you want to revisit any of my past articles just follow the links provided: Covers of the Week 08/07/13 | Covers of the Week 08/14/13 | Covers of the Week 08/21/13 | Covers of the Week 08/28/13.

Most Top 3 Covers Appearances
This award goes to the company that had the most cover appearances in the Top 3. And the winner is:

DC wins with 9 appearances, Marvel garners 2, and the Independents have 1. ________________________________________________________

Best Overall Covers
This award goes to the company that produced the greatest amount of quality covers in a given month. How it works is this: only covers that have earned my Covers of the Week honor are considered. First place each week nets their respective company 5 points, second place 4, third place 3, fourth place 2, and fifth place only 1. The company that has the greatest number of points wins the award. And the winner is:

DC wins with 38 points, Marvel garners 15, and the Independents have 7. ________________________________________________________

  1. Generally speaking I hate Rocafort’s art as much as I love the Angel & Faith cover artist, but in this case I think that Superman # 23 deserves to be the DC Cover of the Month and the Overall Cover of the Month. But it’s a matter of personal taste. : )
    P.S.: I think that the cover for Angel & Faith # 16 is the best one you’ve ever uploaded on your blog, Retroactive covers included

    • Wow! Your pledge of support for Rocafort caught me off guard.

      “But it’s a matter of personal taste.”
      And like I always say…if we all thought the same the world would be a pretty dull place.

      “P.S.: I think that the cover for Angel & Faith # 16 is the best one you’ve ever uploaded on your blog, Retroactive covers included”
      High praise indeed. Originally released in November and still none rivals it? A cover that stands the test of time for sure! 🙂

  2. I’ve noticed that many covers that win awards tend to be fairly minimalist, but you like the covers packed full of stuff. I totally agree with you, I want my covers to all have ADHD.
