Art Attack: March 2011's Coolest Covers

-5 Ronin is truly a treasure trove of amazing cover art. I was quite close to just throwing all 10 gorgeous pieces up here, but decided the love needed to be spread a bit more; something about samurai super heroes just brings out the best in artists, I guess. The concept sounds pretty cool and there are some great interior artists on this as well, so I'm looking forward to it.

-That Avengers Academy cover caught my eye both because it has so much going on and because it seemed like such an un-Mike McKone cover from Mike McKone.

-It's pretty tough for J.H. Williams III not to make these lists.

-It's pretty tough for Travis Charest not to make these lists.

-Galactus is the true star of this post!

-I'm a sucker for homage covers done well, and Giuseppe Camuncoli nailed Wolverine #1 (1988) with his Daken: Dark Wolverine #7 piece.

-That's the best cover I think J.G. Jones has done for Doc Savage yet.

-Janet Lee is tremendously talented.

-Dustin Nguyen's Generation Lost #21 cover is dynamite; he continues to be my guy to watch for great cover art.

-Sometimes you just need to nail classic poses for a dynamic cover, as I believe Art Adams and Joe Quesada remind the industry's young pups with their Thunderbolts and Venom work here.

-That Usagi Yojimbo cover makes me smile--what does that say about me?

-I'm surprised of all the Milestone series they could bring back on an ongoing basis, DC chose Xombi. Not unpleasantly surprised, mind you, as Xombi always seemed to have a neat hook of "real magic," (admittedly I never read it, but I remember the house ads), but I'll be up front and say the primary reason I remember it is as being one of the few books from that line not starring an African American lead (Kobalt being the other major one).

This can't work in fact, that is exactly what I consider.
