Fatale #3 by Sean Phillips
This cover is just another fine example of Sean Phillips at his best. You have the haggard and serious character front and center, as a fiery explosion engulfs everything else on the cover. Brilliant use of washes and colors, and you just know this issue you’re about to read will definitely be action-packed. The slanted placement of the guy in such a stylized way really brings that extra taste of dramatics to this wonderful cover.
The Manhattan Projects #1 by Jonathan Hickman
I couldn’t find a website that would verify it, but I’m 1,000% certain Jonathan Hickman did the cover. His simplistic designs (and love of circles) are a staple with his style, and instantly I can recognize a Hickman cover. Hell, I did an entire paper on the man a few years ago in a graphic design course! And yet, I’m still hesitant. Boldly going forward with my assumptions, I must say this cover does a great job intriguing you. The hybrid figure and a brief synopsis are all I need, but let’s face it; you had me at the very beginning with ‘Hickman’.
Fairest #1 by Adam Hughes
When Adam Hughes does a cover, Adam Hughes does a cover. And a wrap-around cover, no less! What is this, Christmas AND my birthday?! With all that gushing being gushed and onto a more serious note, I don’t think I’ve ever seen Hughes illustrate an ugly woman. I don’t think it’s in his DNA to ever do so. He couldn’t even if he tried! With a title like Fairest highlighting the adventures of Fables‘ finest (and fairest), it’s a perfect fit for Adam Hughes to be involved with this cover. He does a fantastic job distinguishing one maiden from another, with their various quirks and features. This is the poster you need not only for your bedroom, but for that one Fables fan you have in your life (and face it, we all have that one person).
