Cammy’s Favorite Covers for 6/22/11











The Mighty Thor #3 by Olivier Coipel

God of Thunder versus Devourer of Worlds. My money’s on the blond one. This cover almost reminds me of an updated Hang In There! motivational poster, where it’s a David versus Goliath type situation. Only in this case David has a magical hammer that can shoot lightning, not some wimpy slingshot. When Thor relaunched with JMS at the helm, I though Coipel was the perfect choice as artist. If you have to take away one thing from this cover, take this; Coipel is still the perfect artist for Thor, whether it’s interiors or covers.


Action Comics #902 by Kenneth Rocafort

I’ll always remember the first time I was introduced to Kenneth Rocafort’s art; it was Paul Dini’s Madame Mirage miniseries, and his style just blew me away. The babes were bodacious, the action scenes epic, and the colors astounding. It brings me great joy to see his talents on higher profile projects such as Action Comics. He’s able to make every Doomsday hand distinctive in its own unique way, while at the same time making Superman look like a Man of Steel who isn’t to be taken likely. Add the wonderful Metropolis background and this cover is the one you want to have for the eventual hardcover.


Hack / Slash #5 by Jenny Frison

Not going to lie, at first glance I could have sworn this was a Chrissie Zullo cover. Upon further inspection of the credits, my eagle eyes have failed me yet again! I’m not familiar with Jenny Frison’s artwork, but after falling in love with this cover, I want to be very intimate with it (not in that way, sicko) from now on. Here we have a very angelic style for such a bloody horror comic. It’s disturbing, yet beautiful, and I could definitely see it being apart of a mural in my comics room. A very soft painted style, it just intrigues me to no end. I’d definitely buy a lithograph of this if one ever became available.


Batman: Gates of Gotham #2 by Trevor McCarthy

This is my favorite cover of the week, hands-down! Trevor McCarthy is an absolute artistic genius with these covers, that they belong in a museum! The use of symmetry paired with the very fine details covering almost every inch of space is what makes it absolute eye-candy, and you can feel yourself observing it for minutes at a time. This is poster worthy material, and DC would be insane not to push these covers to print ASAP! This could be the worst series in the world (but with Snyder writing it, no way that’ll ever be true), and I would still buy it for the cover alone. Amazing stuff!
