Covers of the Week: Sept. 7th

Hello Revuers! It’s that time of the week again where I select my favorite covers of the week. This week there was pretty strong competition across the board, but in the end my selections made the leap over the rest. As always if you agree or don’t agree let us know in the comments below. Now let’s jump right into it.

 

My favorite regular cover of the week is:

Daredevil #11

Original story arc, for this volume of Daredevil, artist Ron Garney returns to the series after taking a break for a few issues. This cover is also by Garney, who absolutely nails it. The first story arc that Garney did art for was known for it’s tri-color palette and this cover continues that tradition. This story arc is about a serial killer who turns his victims into “works of art”, and it’s being billed as the creepiest Daredevil story arc of all time. judging by this cover it might very well be. The series itself has been hit or miss for me. However Daredevil #8 by Charles Soule and Goran Sudzuka may very well be my favorite single issue of the year. If you are looking for a Marvel series that’s outside of the norm Daredevil may be a perfect fit for you.

 

My favorite variant cover of the week is:

Supergirl #1

This variant cover is by the artist Bengal. This deceptively simple cover is beautiful, but more than that it’s complex. The longer that you look at it, the more details you notice. Like the color shading in the buildings or the shading of Supergirl’s boots and skirt. The sky is the same way with almost a photo realistic rendering of clouds. The palette is classic! with bright reds and dark blues that get lighter until the greyish blue at the bottom of the cover.  Bengal does simple right.
