Ryan L's Cover of the Week - Mystery Society #1 by Ashley Wood
Ryan L.: It's easily the simplicity that draws my eye to this cover. Nice, simple lines that form one heck of an image. This doesn't even really look finished, it could be a sketch variant, but it's a cover that certainly stands out for me. I just can't dig on superhero pin ups so this week Ashley Wood takes the win by going back to the sketch pad and showing me process.
Matt's Cover of the Week - Peter Parker #3 by Doug Braithwaithe
Matt: I have to admit, out of all the times we've done this feature, this has been the hardest choice for me. Despite a very strong selection of comics this week, there were no covers that immediately jumped out at me and said "Cover of the Week"-worthy. In the end, I settled for this Peter Parker one. One thing to note that I found interesting is that Braithwaithe didn't draw any web shooters. I always was a fan of the organic webshooters (cue outrage from readers).
