Animal Man #2 by Travel Foreman
I don’t know what I’m looking at, but I’m a little freaked out all the same. This is why you don’t genetically modify chickens…or squids, for that matter. The imagery is so bizarre, insane, and twisted all at once, that I think PETA might even have a problem with this cover. I don’t care though, because I love it! Animal Man and his daughter flee with good reason, for they have quite the gruesome jabberwocky trailing close behind. If this cover doesn’t intrigue you to take a peek inside, I don’t know what will!
Casanova: Avaritia #2 by Gabriel Bá
Finally, the version of Kung Fu Panda I wanted to see! Now if you’re like me and watch a lot of nature shows, you’ll know that the panda bear, while cute, isn’t friendly whatsoever. So with this cover I think Gabriel Bá really captured the raw power of the typical panda when confronted by samurai in its natural environment. The poses, the intensity, the simplicity; all these factors really make this cover work.
X-Men: Schism #5 by Adam Kubert
Uh, guys, LOOK UP!! Even with impending doom hovering right above them, Logan and Scott still have to fight over who has the bigger, uh, “X-Man”. I especially love the detail in the Sentinel’s hand as it powers up, about to completely incinerate them. Alas, boys will be boys, and the entire mutant race seems to be suffering because of it. I wish these two would just fuck and get it over with. Beautiful cover by Adam Kubert nonetheless.
