Rafael Albuquerque is the runner-up this week with this cover featuring DC’s hottest new team. “Who are the Unknowns?” The cover asks us this very question, challenging us to decipher the clues and determine the identities of Batwoman’s new teammates. The lineup of the Unknowns is displayed on a perpendicular angle from the main title and caption which not only allows us to take in the entire team side by side but also symbolizes that this team is a little off kilter as well. Having the background completely white and devoid of details also helps us to be unencumbered by clutter and focus solely on the image of the team while making them pop off the page as well. Each mystery member is coloured differently in silhouette form, a little phrase hinting at each one’s identity while a censor bar is found over their eyes to further sell the secret nature. Starting top to bottom we piece together the team using said silhouettes and phrases: “Hell breaks loose” is Etrigan the Demon, “The clothes make the man” is Ragman, “We’re all mad here” is Batwoman’s sister Alice, and finally “Feet of clay” is Clayface. It is such a varied and unusual roster and really makes us wonder what has possibly brought all of them together? How will they interact with one another? Can the Unknowns succeed in their mission? It compels us to open the book up for answers and like I always say…that is what truly makes a great cover.
