That’s THE CAPE: 1969 #1 by Joe Hill, Jason Ciaramella and Nelson Daniel. This cover is full of things that work. For example, you can know he’s in a choppa, even ‘do you don’t really see it. I really like the dogtag idea for the editor and the authors. There’s not enough comics about the Vietnam war.
Here goes another creepy cover. THE STRAIN #5 by David Lapham, Mike Huddleston and Dan Jackson. Notice that without the shadow, it’s way less scary. Also that all it looks like it’s happening in a concentration camp. Instant nightmare fuel.
METAL GEAR SOLID VOL.3 by Ashley Wood and Kris Oprisko. Ashley Wood is an insanely awesome australian robot dude©. I’d frame every single page of this comic in my house. Incredible textures, Bathshit contrasts etc.
L’INVENTION DU VIDE by Debon. I love climbing. I’ve never really climbed a really high mountain since I live in an urban jungle, but I love this vertigo feeling on this cover right here. Plus the colors are really vivid.
NATIONAL COMICS: ROSE AND THORN by Tom Taylor and Neil Googe. Cover by Ryan Sook. Those duality concepts work really well in comics. Case in point. Lotsa details, too. Additional points for not fucking up the perspective in the mirror.
SPACE PUNISHER by Frank Tieri and Mark Texeira. This one goes in the “your argument is invalid” category. SPACE PUNISHER might be a good concept. If only the punisher series weren’t so serious about themselves! you can’t be doing this in a serious way folks!
REBEL BLOOD #1 By Alex Link and Riley Rossmo. In the age of CGI it’s really fun to see a painted cover, A’specially a good one like this one. Plus, the dude on the cover is cool and creepy© . Nice texture, too.
Red hood and the outlaws #9 by Scott Lobdell and Kenneth Rocafort. The action is goddamned clear and cool. The colors are nice, and the composition too.
Gears of War Vol.2 By Joshua Ortega, Liam McCormack-Sharp and Mike Capps. I don’t dig the 90’s style this much. I don’t like weird pin-ups this much. Here, it just fits perfectly. You nailed it. Makes me think a bit of the darkness.
Daredevil #15 by MARK WAID and CHRIS SAMNEE. Cover by PAOLO RIVERA. This cover has exactly the same palette than the one in my previous post. coincidence. Anyways, this one is way more intense, with a blindman stuck in barbed wire. How the hell will he get out? I hope it’s not a deus ex machina. Deus ex machina suxs.
Dancer #1 by Nathan Edmondson and Nic Klein. I love chroma-thematic© covers, like this series has. I also like this particular tone of blue, a little faded-out. Also, the concept is nice. Guess I’ll have to read it to understand, ‘do! Is the white supposed to look like a chalk outline?
