And here is the Cover of the Week by Mike Del Mundo who wins this distinction for the very first time. At the end of a great performance the spotlight shines on the star as she takes a bow, showered in the adoration of the audience. This cover takes that traditional scene and puts a twist on it. Instead of the light emanating from a spotlight we have the light put forth from a hovering helicopter, instead of just flowers lying at Elektra’s feet we also have the unconscious or deceased bodies of those who have run up against her. Elektra takes her bow having performed a dance of violence and death, an artistic display of her very own. The lighting creates a haunting yet beautiful atmosphere, the colouring is top-notch, and the use of shadows is brilliant. It is a cover worthy of the accolades and one that stands out from the rest as the clear-cut winner. With that said, Mike Del Mundo, I award you the first place crown this week. Congratulations!
So those are my favourites and it’s a four-to-one victory for Marvel over the Independents. What’s your personal favourite covers from the week that was? Comment below!
