Cammy’s Covers – Adventure Time To Before Watchmen

Cameron Hatheway writes for Bleeding Cool;

 Adventure Time #12 (Cover C) by Lilli Carré

Symmetry; totally algebraic! It’s the simple-yet-mesmerizing design of this Adventure Time totem pole that captured my heart. Jake’s wacky arms loopty looing all over the place, the dueling hair colors of Princess Bubblegum and Marceline, and the cherry on top being the unimpressed look on Lumpy Space Princess’ face (“Oh my glob! This totem pole is sooo lame!”). Colorful and friendly, this cover could double as a poster if you get an appropriately matching frame. The only thing missing in my opinion is the star of the show, Gunter.

Before Watchmen: Dollar Bill #1 (Variant) by Darwyn Cooke

Dollah, dollah bill, ya’ll! It’s a shame Dollar Bill never survived long enough to see the Wu-Tang Clan perform; he would have been a fan. The image of a shattered piggy bank has never been more appropriate, especially when Dollar Bill is the piggy bank in question. He should have ‘change-d’ his outfit when he had the chance! Like in The Incredibles, capes will always be dangerous. Next time you’re about to add one to your attire, stop and ask yourself, “What would anti-cape spokesman Dollar Bill say about this?” And then remember that Dollar Bill can’t say anything about it, because he’s dead. From getting his cape caught in a revolving door. He never put his money where his mouth was (because he put it in his chest instead).

Hawkeye #7 by David Aja

You would think Hurricane Sandy could have been avoided if one of the Avengers was brave enough to ask Thor, God of Thunder, or Storm of the X-Men to make it go away. But no, instead it’s Hawkeye’s problem to deal with. Surely one of his arrows is modified to battle hurricane winds, right? Anyway, beautiful cover design, and great use of typography. The red hurricane icon beams like a beautiful (yet deadly) beacon, with New York strategically placed in the foreground. If given the opportunity, I bet Aja could hammer out these covers until the end of time, and each one would still be gorgeous.

Invincible #100 (Cover B) by Cory Walker

This is my favorite cover of the week, hands down. I think it’s truly brilliant, and I’ll tell you why. Yes, it looks like just another superhero cover as the hero takes on his legions of villains, but then focus on Invincible’s pose; it’s the exact same one from issue #1 (also illustrated by Walker). Mind = blown. It’s simple, yet amazing because this entire time he’s been ready to battle the hordes of evil-doers he’s collected during his time as a superhero, and the thought never crossed out minds when looking at that first issue’s cover. It also shows how much Walker has improved as an artist all these years, so it’s a win-win for everyone. Well player, Walker. Well played indeed!
