Ryan L's Cover of the Week - Proof #26 by Riley Rossmo
Ryan L.: How does bigfoot put on his pants? One leg at a time, same as the rest of us. Sorry, that was lame, but it's that sort of reason why I like this cover. He's just taking his time, enjoying the little things. I like that this issue is a one-shot stand alone story that's also taking its time and just doing what it likes. I also adore the colour palette used here with the squares on the wall. It's like Proof here is on set of The Ice Storm. Golden and simple and way better than dogs playing poker, I could stare at this for hours.
Matt's Cover of the Week - Marvel Zombies 5 #1 by Rafa Garres
Matt: It's hard to put a finger on exactly what sells me on this cover, it may be the dramatic angle, the dynamic action, or just the sheer gore factor. Or maybe I just love it when Machine Man destroys some fleshy ones (even if they are zombies). In the end, it's a very eye catching cover, and that's really important in my eyes.
