I’m quite disappointed with the selection of covers on offer from what I bought this week. There are some ok ones like the Marvel Now! Point One issue and Batwoman #13 but the rest are decidedly average. Thank god for these two exceptional covers that perk up an otherwise miserable selection:
Despite the horrendous Arrow banner that is sullying all of this month’s worth of DC Comics. This continues the trend of amazing Cliff Chiang covers for one the best books of the New 52. It is fully of energy and some good foreshadowing for what is to come in the next few months. (Hint: those are Ares’ bloody footprints!) I also love the robe that Diana is using to fend off the intense desert sun.
I just really like the detail on this cover. It has Captain Marvel kicking arse and being her awesome self. The battle damage on the uniform realistic. As in there are a few tears where she has been hit but the rest is wear and tear like on her fist which she has been punching seven shades of crap out of something. It’s more, Carol Danvers action hero rather than, Carol Danvers pinup which is always good to see.
And that’s it for this week. Like I said, quite disappointing. Hopefully things will pick up a bit more next week!
