Hello Revuers! It’s Thursday, which means another exciting New Comic Book day has come and gone. What an exciting week it was. If you are interested in what we here at Deja.Revue were most interested in you can look at our New Comic Book Day Post HERE. Now it’s time to look at our favorite regular cover and variant cover of the week! Without further delay let’s jump right in:
My favorite regular cover of the week goes to 4001 AD #4
This cover by Clayton Crain is beautiful. Both in design and in execution.The dragon city design is very appealing, and the color palette chosen for the background is subtly brilliant. I haven’t read the series yet, but this cover convinced me to buy this issue so now I’ll have to track down the other three. Plus it’s written by Matt Kindt, so you know the writing will be great. Valiant has been killing it lately.
My favorite variant cover of the week is Tokyo Ghost #10
I said it in the New Comic Book Day Top 5 post and I’ll say it again, this is one of the greatest covers of all time. Dustin Nguyen is extremely talented, and he holds no punches in this beautifully painted cover. You might recognize him from his covers and interiors in Descender (also by Image), and Batman: Li’l Gotham. The color choices in this cover are exquisite. By the time I had gone to my local comic shop this variant was already sold out, and it’s easy to see why. I don’t think Dustin Nguyen gets enough credit for the amazing work he puts out. Which is a weird thing to say about a guy who just won an Eisner for best Painter/multi-media artist, but not enough people know who he is. He should be a household name.
