Art Attack: April 2012's Coolest Covers

-I included more covers this month from Dark Horse and Image than I ever have before. Will that incline me to sample their product more? I gotta say, it might. In particular, stuff like Prophet and the other Extreme Studios books are really grabbing my attention on visuals. Ditto New Deadwardians (Dan Abnett doesn't hurt there either). We shall see...

-I also included a lot of Avengers Art Appreciation variants and probably could have thrown a few more in there. I love seeing guys and girls cut loose with the Art Appreciation concept, the weirder the better, with icons I love being twisted and jumbled. In particular, Charles Paul Wilson III's adorable Incredible Hulk piece is precious and John Tyler Christopher's fine art Black Widow on Winter Soldier stands out.

-A lot of very scary covers too. Travel Foreman has really found a visceral groove on Animal Man, and the BPRD images are pretty terrifying; in particular, Becky Cloonan's Pickens County Horror is seriously grossing me out. For real, it's making me uncomfortable.

-There's nothing left to say about Marcos Martin's Daredevil covers. If there were, it would be a steady line of superlatives.

-Mike Deodato's New Avengers cover looks like Mike Deodato but not, y'know? It's got his signature stuff, but he's stretching, which is always appreciated. He does draw a kick ass Iron Fist.

-Alan Davis, man. I can never get enough.

-Love the shout out to Static's original look on Khary Randolph's Static Shock cover. That's an awesome little touch.

I have to say all of the Avenger ones are very new and different, which is good. But the cover that stuck out to me was Supergirl.. I was shocked to see it was done by George Perez. Totally blown away..

And a quick note, I have noticed that Greg Land is working hard at not being Greg Land. In Uncanny #6, I noticed that his characters aren't as stiff as usual and His Designs for the Apex are pretty sweet. Now I was never a huge fan, but I can see some growth.. let me know what you think.

Really digging the AMS #682! What a cool design. I'm also pretty pumped to see Bagley drawing Marvel characters again.

Be sure to check out Dark Horse Presents #11! In addition to having an awesome short by Francisco Frankevilla, my writing partner Frank Barberie and the awesomely talented Luke Radl have a short story from their upcoming series "The White Suits"

So check it out. Awesome post, btw, so many good covers.
