  1. Protector Inc # 2 is my Best Cover of the Month.
    The first thing that caught my attention was the unusual perspective: we’re seeing the scene from on high, and the city depicted in this cover has been drawn so well and so meticulously that, if you look under the man who’s about to commit suicide, this cover makes you feel dizzy: it takes tons of talent to stir up such a vivid emotion.
    Secondly, the colouring is simply perfect. I love the contrast between the gorgeous tones of blue used for the skyscrapers and the ominous tone of red used for the road.
    Thirdly, the dramatic power of this image is huge. A man who’s about to commit suicide, a scene of the crime right behind him, the print of a bloody hand on the window of the apartment, a war poster (it makes us understand that a war is going on, so we have both a private and a collective drama), the aforementioned artistic choice of colouring the road with blood red… this image is so full of awesome details that, each time I look at it, I find something that had passed me by until then.
    Special mention for Forever Evil Rogues Rebellion # 3, because it’s a classic action packed cover, with two characters fighting each other while they’re falling down from a broken window. Even in this case the colouring is jaw – dropping.

      Wow! A fantastic write-up for a cover that I very nearly didn’t get because it was the variant and my LCS only brought in one. She is a fantastic artist and I’d love to see more work from her.

      This would be my runner-up for DC Cover of the Month. Mirror Master is a great villain who also makes for some visually stunning scenes such as this. Can’t wait to see how the Flash TV show will tackle him.

      Thanks for sharing your Rankings and taking the time to write your thoughts. It is mighty appreciated. 🙂
