Covers of the Week: Aug. 17

Hello Revuers! This weeks race for covers of the week was a close one. In a week that saw a ton of releases it was hard to narrow it down to just two. Yours truly put in the work and whittled it down for you. Without further delay here are my picks for Regular cover of the week and Variant cover of the week.

 

My favorite Regular cover of the week is for Horizon #2 by Josh Howard

You mat recognize his style from the fantastic covers he did for the “Trees” series last year. I love his highly graphic style. His almost abstract way that he pulls shapes out of his covers is truly unique and striking. The series it’s self is written by Brandon Thomas with interior art by Juan Gedeon. The series is a surprise twist on a played out trope that makes it fun and intriguing. I would recommend picking this title up if it’s not already on your pull list.

 

My pick for Variant cover of the week is The Wicked and Divine #22 Cover B by Olly Moss

This cover continues in the tradition of the Bust series of cover by Jamie Mckelvie that was the calling card of the first story arc of this series. Olly takes the “bust” idea and runs with it, creating a cover that is an actual bust that has the appearance of something that would be in an art museum. Not only is this my favorite cover of the week, but it probably is my favorite cover of the month. As for the series, The Wicked and the Divine is my favorite series of the year. They are currently on issue 22, and I would recommend that you start with the first Trade. It is a sort of confusing series if you don’t know what happened at the beginning.
