Superheroes

It is time for the best covers from the week that was. A quick reminder: only comics that I personally have purchased qualify for this piece. If a title contains more than one cover, only the one I own is taken into consideration. Now without further ado:

  1. Rocket Raccoon # 3 is a delightful parody of the X – Force covers starring Cable that Rob Liefeld used to draw in the 90s (this is my favorite one: http://marvel.wikia.com/X-Force_Vol_1_9), so it gets the gold medal.
    Silver medal for UXM # 25: the characters are depicted in such a realistic way that this cover seems to be made with frames from a b/w movie, and this speaks volumes about how talented the cover artist is. I also love the unusual tone of red the colourist used.
    Bronze medal for The Punisher # 10: not only because the skull has been drawn in a very creative way, but also because I love the politically incorrect artistic choice of showing some blood on the cover.
    She – Hulk # 8 got very close to the bronze medal. The main reason why I considered this cover for the 3rd prize is Matt’s presence; I also appreciated the watercolour – like colouring. Maybe this cover actually is a watercolour, but I’m not sure.

  2. Really, any of those covers, including the runner-ups, could be considered the cover of the week. Hawkeye vs. Deadpool is hilarious, She Hulk is smart and simplistic, Uncanny X-Men is kind of genius and Rocket Raccoon perfectly fits his character.
