Animal Man #1 by Travel Foreman
By far my favorite cover of the week. Just look at all the complexity and detail that was put into the heart / Buddy hybrid. Veins blending into flesh, and blood flowing freely in his face. Add the nice gaggle of animals at the bottom (a Bolland tribute to the original series cover), and this is one spectacular cover.
Casanova: Avaritia #1 by Gabriel Ba
Gabriel Ba once again steals my hear with his beautiful watercolors on this cover. They’re such warm, happy colors too. African plains, perhaps? I’m not quite sure yet. I also enjoy the contrast to the lower image; borders around the different shapes, but still nice and colorful. Very intriguing cover altogether, thanks to the several different colors.
Sweet Tooth #25 by Jeff Lemire

Batgirl #1 by Adam Hughes
Adam Hughes drawing a beautiful woman? Check. Batgirl is a redhead? Check. Swarms of cool looking bats in the background? Check. This entire cover wins my seal of approval. I’d show the image of my seal of approval, but he’s on loan at Sea World at the moment. Back to the cover at hand; it’s gorgeous, plain and simple.
Moon Knight #5 by Alex Maleev
This cover belongs in an art gallery. I’m serious. It could easily be placed as the main attraction, right next to the other acrylic paintings. I would then enter said gallery, steal it a la The Thomas Crown Affair, and live happily ever after with the Spidey / Wolverine / Cap amalgam hanging in my bedroom. I’d sip a glass of Ravenswood Zinfandel from my leather chair, and admire its beauty from across the room, the image itself being illuminated by the fireplace. Now to convince Maleev to put it on display!
