Cammy's Covers - From Captain Marvel To Comeback

Cameron Hatheway writes;

Captain Marvel #9 by Jaime McKelvie & Jordie Bellaire

Usually I’d still be bitching and moaning when a prominent character gets a costume change, but for Captain Marvel here I’m still ga-ga for it nine issues in. It could be McKelvie’s style (that always tickles my fancy), but for this cover in particular I like how the starry night helps fill-in her figure. The power she’s wielding is also a nice touch, as she goes to infinity and beyond. Very aesthetically pleasing overall, and definitely grabbed my attention on the shelves.

Comeback #3 by Michael Walsh

Warmer colors make my soul happy. I’ve been really enjoying these cover layouts from Walsh, for while each issue has the trademark multicolored abstract panes, it’s always something different and enticing. The gun, the damsel in distress (there’s a large gun pointed at her; how is she not in distress?), the flow of the image on a white background; all just simply fantastic!

The Black Beetle: No Way Out #1 by Francesco Francavilla

I cannot stress enough how happy I am for Francavilla and his own creation being published at Dark Horse. His style and their content were just made for each other, and the stars really aligned quite nicely for pulp and noir lovers everywhere. This cover is thrilling, as the intricate design of the maze hammers home the meaning of the title “No Way Out.” Adding the whole feel of a long lost pulp hero with the design and layout is the icing on the cake, for I can see some Billy or Tommy rolling this issue up and hiding it under their bed. That Eisner insignia is on that cover for a reason, folks.

Saga #9 by Fiona Staples

This is my favorite cover of the week, hands down. Twistedly erotic, this homage to the Fabio romance covers from decades past is the perfect way to sum-up the relationship between The Will and the Stalk. While meant to be sexy, I can’t help but chuckle at the serious tone that’s supposed to be implied. A love story with six-pack abs, multiple arms, and multiple eyes. Are your panties moist yet? Mine certainly are.

2000AD Prog 1815 by Darren Douglas

Dredd in action always makes for an excellent cover, especially when the situation calls for jousting with guns. Watching scum fly left and right as they eat both pavement and bullets is disgustingly beautiful, as Mega-City One bustles on in the background. This would make for a great poster on any comic lover’s wall!
