Ryan: This cover is bold and eye catching, with strong expressions and a great sense of depth. What I really love about it, though, is how Tom Grummett manages to highlight the unfamiliarity of Shadowcat's redesigned outfit without alienated fans. She instantly recognizable, despite the noticably new direction.
Kirk's Cover of the Week - X-Men Forever #4 (30's Decade Variant)
Kirk: And Marvel knocks another Cover of the Week out of the park with these Decades Variants, this time with a throwback to the 30's and the Wizard of Oz. I love the soft colours and how they went the extra mile and added Xavier, Storm and Jean as the witches and Oz in the background.
Matt's Cover of the Week - Secret Warriors #6 (70's Decade Variant)
Matt: Have I mentioned how much I love negative space covers? I believe I did so last week. But anyway, Tom Coker does a great job with this cover, especially the background, which calls back to the psychedelic days of Steranko in the Nick Fury title.
