Cammy’s Covers – Bedlam To Bram And Ben

Cameron Hatheway writes;

Bedlam #4 by Frazer Irving

I think a villain tends to be even creepier when you can’t see his face. Even if he slightly reminds me of Mysterio, I’d be too paralyzed with fear to make such a remark. The eye really focuses on the cool grey tones, then suddenly take notice of the brightly colored bloodstained chairs at the bottom. The addition of the pink light pouring through the windows in the background step-up that level of suspense, for nothing in this cover puts you at ease. Everything is twisted and terrifying, and only a master such as Irving can take you there.

Change #3 by Morgan Jeske & Jordie Bellaire

Bellaire’s colors alone really sell this cover for me. Starry nights in her hair, and blue skies across the eyes. A woman of nature? Probably. With a pristine white cover engulfing the rest of the illustration, the woman pops that much more, and makes it oh-so aesthetically pleasing to look at. Simple, beautiful, and a job well done.

The End Times of Bram and Ben #2 by J.A.W. Cooper

At first I thought Chrissie Zullo had illustrated this cover, but upon further inspection that isn’t the case. Could have fooled me, for the art style reminds me of a blend of Zullo and James Jean, which is certainly high praise I know. The asymmetrical yin-yang type of design is intriguing, as well as the tattoos and outfits on display. I want to know more about these characters, which is exactly what a cover is supposed to do. Bravo, Mr. Cooper!

Fatale #12 by Sean Phillips

I guess she weighed the same as a duck. Like Irving’s cover at the beginning, I love the mixture of greys and the sharp contrast of reds and warmer colors. The fire slowly eating away at her is horrifying, and you can clearly see it in her face. The red glow in the windows conveys that sinister feeling, as you helplessly watch this woman burn before you. What did you expect? She did turn me into a newt (I got better).

Star Wars #2 by Alex Ross

This is my favorite cover of the week, hands down. Much like the first cover, this one continues punching you right in the childhood (in a good way). Alex Ross knows how to cram in several different characters and scenarios into one cover, and yet keeps it entertaining and exciting as hell! Like most people, I’m a big fan of Boba Fett, so just seeing the Slave I hot on Solo’s tail is simply riveting and spectacular. So much awesome in one cover, how can you not read the story on the inside?!
