The New Avengers #21 by Mike Deodato & Rain Beredo
While Mike Deodato isn’t one of those old school, legendary comic book artists, he can sure make a cover look like it stepped out from an era gone-by. To me, the coloring really gives it that dated look and feel, but the shading keeps it current. The style reminds me slightly of of Walt Simonson, Barry Windsor-Smith, and even a little Gene Colon thrown in there. Very beautiful stuff.
Star Trek / Legion Of Super-Heroes #5 by Mike Allred
Look how dreamy Kirk looks right there; worth the price of admission alone! Allred definitely delivers the goods with this cover, adding a groovy ingredient to this sci-fi stew. Everyone’s uniform looks superb, and the layering of the characters fills out the cover quite nicely. Makes me want to go back and re-watch some Star Trek: The Original Series ASAP!
Wonder Woman #6 by Cliff Chiang
Myself being a big fan of Greek mythology growing up, I always loved the beasts of legend the most. Cerberus was always a favorite of mine, and I was slightly disappointed with the interpretation of him in the first Harry Potter film (to be honest, the CGI wasn’t the best at the time). This cover however, does my dawg justice; vicious pointy teeth, evil red eyes, and such a lovely gray coat. Doesn’t look like he’s in complete control though, seeing how Wonder Woman’s lasso is dancing around the cover. Great illustration by Chiang, and I’d love to eventually own a poster or print of it.
X-Factor #232 by David Yardin
“…And if you go chasing rabbits
And you know you’re going to fall
Tell ’em a hookah smoking caterpillar
Has given you the call
To call Alice, when she was just small…“
–White Rabbit, Jefferson Airplane
