In honor of Bonnie and Lola and THE GIRL WHO WOULD BE KING we continue our 30 Days of Superheroines!

KORRA!

I haven’t seen much of the new Korra series, but I know people are cuckoo for it – and it’s easy to see why. Great new female character of color on the scene? It’s far too rare.

Gotta give it to this smart cover for The New Deadwardians #2 (which is an excellent book you should all be reading). I believe the cover is by interiors artist I.N.J. Culbard:

Also great this week is this Becky Cloonan cover for B.P.R.D. Hell On Earth: Pickens County Horror #2:

I missed last week due to insane other commitments, but if I had picked a cover it probably would have been this gorgeous B.P.R.D. Hell On Earth: The Long Death #3 cover by Duncan Fegredo and Dave Stewart:

Wow. What a great week for comics covers!

I cannot possibly pick just one, there is such an embarrassment of riches…here we go!

First up this absolutely stunningly beautiful Conan The Barbarian #3 by Massimo Carnevale:

So glad to see this Amy Reeder Batwoman cover actually did get used, I talked about it a couple weeks ago on She Has No Head! and opined that it might not show, but happy to have it in my hands, absolutely gorgeous:

A wonderfully fitting and gorgeously illustrated cover for Brian Wood’s final Northlanders issue, again by Massimo Carnevale:

Wonderful weird-ness from Ross Campbell’s newest issue of Glory:

A simple but powerful cover from Fiona Staples for Saga #2:

Gorgeous and super fun alternate cover for Winter Soldier #4 by John Tyler Christopher:

I’ve got to give it to Fiona Staples gorgeous (and for some reason controversial…what planet am I living on?!) Saga #1:

Honorable Mentions to Ross Campbell’s Glory #24, a super hardcover cover that’s also a fantastic example of the split screen cover…which most artist screw up:

I also have to give major props to Phil Noto who nails his representations of Buffy and Spike, but then twists it into a very conservative/suburban situation that’s hilarious but works at the same time on the Buffy The Vampire Slayer: Season Nine #7 cover:

Absolutely love this gorgeous Mark Brooks Rogue cover for X-Men Legacy #262:

Easy win last week for Ross Campbell’s Glory #23 which is a thousand kinds of awesome:

Honorable mentions to both absolutely gorgeous covers of B.P.R.D. Hell On Earth: The Long Death #1, the first by Duncan Fegredo:

And the variant by Mike Mignola:

Additional Honorable Mention to Cliff Chiang’s gorgeous Wonder Woman #6.  This is perhaps my favorite Chiang Wonder Woman yet!

 

I don’t read Moon Knight, but this cover for Moon Knight #9 by Alex Maleev is sublime:

It’d be a hell of a lot more beautiful and compelling without that goddamn banner, but this Storm cover for Avengers #21 by Daniel Acuna is lovely.  Also, despite how long she’s been around and how A-list she is/should be, Storm has precious few truly awesome covers…ironic that this one is from Avengers and not X-Men…but I’ll take what I can get:

A bit of totally awesome by Marian Churchland for Prophet #21:

And this absolutely gorgeous offering by Cliff Chiang for Wonder Woman #5.  And a nice use of restraint on the tentacles there.  Well done sir, well done:

Last week’s Cover(s) of the Week are a tie between Buffy & Batwoman (don’t tell DC Women Kicking Ass…she’ll be mad!)

First up, Steve Morris’ truly excellent Buffy The Vampire Slayer: Season Nine #5.  Look at those colors, absolutely fantastic.  Love the text integration as well, so smart:

And then there’s Batwoman #5 by J.H. Williams III.  Absolutely stunning – and as I discussed when it came up in Drunk Cover Solicits a few months ago, there’s so much more there than meets the eye at first glance.  It’s beautiful if you don’t look deep, but if you take the time, it’s incredibly complex and interesting.  Actually, I’d say that about both these covers.  Excellent work gents.

I’m not going to do a post for Panel Of The Week for last week (too busy/tired/lazy) but this definitely would have been one of the picks, also from Batwoman #5 and J.H. Williams:

Have to give this week’s Cover Of The Week to Chris Burnham’s Batman Inc. Leviathan Strikes #1 – though it’d look a lot better without so much crap splashed all over it:

Although for “holiday spirit” I have to give it to this wonderful Daredevil #7 from Paolo Manuel Rivera:

Still no panel of the week since my scanner remains dead to the world, but I can still offer up some Cover of the Week choices.

Of course it’s a Batwoman week…so are you surprised to see Batwoman #4 by J.H. Williams III here?  No, you certainly are not.  Gorgeous.

Also strong this week is Julian Totino Todesco’s Northanger Abbey #2.  All of his covers are looking lovely but this one, thanks to those birds is my favorite.  I love how they glow white and draw the eye.  They also create a great graphic shape. Really wonderful stuff.

Love this David Yardin piece for X-Factor #228.  Beautiful and haunting and very unique for mainstream superhero comics.

Easy call this week since Skottie Young was participating. His John Carter: A Princess of Mars #3 cover is 100% win:

I’m sorry but Steve Morris is just KILLING these Buffy covers.  Buffy The Vampire Slayer: Season 9 #3:

And this is my favorite of Marko Djurdjevic’s Avengers Origins covers.  Avengers Origins: The Vision (one-shot):

This Northanger Abbey #1 cover by Julian Tedesco Totino is pretty freaking gorgeous:

I’m sure this one will surprise a lot of you, but I LOVE this Uncanny X-Force #17 cover by Esad Ribic.  The colors and lights and darks are absolutely fantastic as is the composition and attitude, and though Psylocke’s costume is obviously a little um…you know…I love that she looks a bit fleshy and real and much less plastic than how so many ladies in comics.

Loved this look by Marco Djurdjevic for Avenger Origins: Ant-Man & The Wasp (one-shot).  Gorgeous.

To be honest, I didn’t the love the writing here, but inside is absolutely stunning Stephanie Hans artwork, so between the cover and the interiors…it’s more than worth a look.

Nobody draws Wolverine better than Chris Bachalo, that alone is enough to merit a cover of the week for Wolverine & The X-Men #1:

Amazing David Aja alternate cover for Secret Avengers #18:

Ryan Sook has been killing these DC Universe Presents covers with Deadman and issue #2 is no exception. In truth I liked it better when the background was more graphic and less detailed, but it’s still great:

Cliff Chiang continues to bring it with Diana on these Wonder Woman covers with issue #2:

I also really like this Daniel Acuna Avengers #18…but I’m a bit of a sucker for the idea of Captain America going through a bunch of headshots to choose his new Avengers team.  Bonus points for Rogue being considered. How far we’ve come my girl, how far we’ve come!  Course we all know it’s going to be Storm, but points for being on the table!

Is there anything that can beat the perfect simplicity of Kate Beaton’s Napoleon from the cover of Hark! A Vagrant?  No, no there’s not.

Also, did you guys check out my CBR Review of the collection?  No?  Do so now!  🙂

But since I don’t usually consider graphic novels, trades, and collections for this feature…

Chris Brunner and Rico Renzi’s gorgeous Static Shock #2.  Wonderful color work, composition and movement:

Also, this offering from Stormwatch #2 (much superior to what was originally solicited) by Miguel Sepulveda and Alex Sinclair is pretty awesome. Giant eye with tentacles?  YES.

Some gorgeous covers this week.

Terry Moore’s Rachel Rising #2:

Steve Morris’ Angel & Faith #2:

Ryan Sook’s Justice League Dark #1:

A few gems from this week…

Cliff Chiang’s Wonder Woman #1

And how about this cover, which was an early version by Cliff Chiang that wasn’t used, I like EVEN BETTER.  I mean…Wonder Woman with an awesome battle ax?!  YES.

This is a great illustration for Legion of Super-Heroes #1, and a great example of how to do “floating figures” well…by integrating them into the design so that they’re not actually floating.

Marcos Martin continues to absolutely kill these Daredevil covers.

It’s an easy win this week for J.H. Williams III’s long-awaited Batwoman #1:

But there were some very nice offerings this week beyond Batwoman, so some runner ups!

Buffy The Vampire Slayer: Season 9 #1 Variant by Steve Morris:

Buffy The Vampire Slayer: Season 9 #1 Variant by Jo Chen:

Mr. Terrific #1 by J.G. Jones:

And Pigs #1 by Jock.  All #1’s…INNNNTERESSSSSTING.
