Ryan L's Cover of the Week - Avengers: The Origin #2 by Phil Noto
Ryan L.: What's not to like about this cover? Iron Man is seriously getting flattened and Hulk's not holding anything back. I love that you can see Stark's mouth just below the bottom of the helmet and he's really taking it hard, and the concentric circles at the point of impact just give it more weight. There should be a set of variant covers with Hulk punching different characters like this and showing the real impact and result it would have.
Matt: Sometimes a cover does not need a striking design, eye catching colors, or incredible craftsmanship to win the honor of Cover of The Week. Sometimes, all that it is needed is a good visual gag to earn the love of this humble reviewer. And really, Katie Power trying to get a saddle on everyone's favorite space horse Beta Ray Bill, is a pretty funny gag.
