Cammy’s Covers – Fairest To Polarity

Fairest #14 by Adam Hughes

Normally when Hughes illustrates a cover for this series, we get some pretty-yet-sexy damsel in a seductive pose of sorts. With this cover, it’s the simplicity that makes it sexy, for it leaves a lot to the imagination regarding this little woodland nymph. Doing what ivy does best, it completely engulfs her and becomes her outfit of life. Had this been a DC comic book, I would have guessed Poison Ivy was back in town. Overall, I really like this cover, and I’m surprised I was able to resist making a ‘she should trim her bushes’ joke.

Despite the odds we see before us, I believe that Venom will walk away the victor at the end of the fight. He doesn’t even look daunted here, where if I was in his position you’d be able to see the yellow urine exiting my combat leggings. Whereas police chief Martin Brody needed a bigger boat, Venom simply needs a bigger gun and he’s good to go.

How can one of the best horror comics on the market look so gosh darn cute?? It’s Giarrusso’s curse; everything he illustrates turns to cute. He’d even be able to make Avatar’s Crossed look adorable. No matter what comic he’s putting his personal take on, I always want to see an animated series of the final result. Every. Single. Time.

Alas, we finally come to the end of this epic series from Keatinge & Campbell, and I couldn’t think of a better cover to end with. Two friends, hand in hand, walking into the great unknown on their greatest adventure yet. The simple use of blues on an alabaster background works wonders, for with a cover as sentimental as this one, I can’t help but get a little choked-up from the overall presentation. Absolutely gorgeous stuff as usual, Mr. Campbell.

This is my favorite cover of the week, hands down. I remember several months back when BOOM! Studios first released the teaser to this series, and all that was on display with that face at the bottom with white hair. Little did I know at the time that the ‘white hair’ wasn’t yet filled in with all the marvelous colors and images we see before us. In my defense, it could have stayed white and I still would have raved about it because it was executed with Irving’s wonderful style. However the final product we see here is as stunning as it is mind-blowing, causing me curiosity about this series to the highest degree. It’s simple; you involve Irving in any capacity, and you instantly have my money.
