Ryan L's Cover of the Week - PunisherMAX #7
Ryan L.: Dave Johnson has been knocking these out of the park on this series and I finally get to choose one. This is pretty damn eye catching, no doubt about it. I love the concept and idea of this cover and the execution is even better. I really wish this series wasn't $3.99, I'd be all over it.
Kirk's Cover of the Week - Batman: The Return of Bruce Wayne #1Kirk: I liked everything about this cover. It tells a story - one that is actually related to the contents of the issue, a rarity in comic covers these days - and has a sleek, cut away bat symbol trade dress that really showed off the art while still drawing your attention to the bat logo and title of the book.
Matt's Cover of the Week - Black Widow #2 (Variant) by Stephanie Hans
Matt: You know what sucks? I have no idea how to describe what the technique Hans used here with the gun outline and the image inside of it. I'm sure it has an artistic name for it, but my knowledge in that field is obviously lacking. What I can tell you though, is that this cover is eye catching, interesting, and unique in it's composition, and that makes it a winner in my opinion.
