Cover of the Week - The Marvelous Land of Oz #8

Ryan Lindsay and I both agreed on our pick for Cover of the Week this time around and the lucky winner was Skottie Young's Marvelous Land of Oz #8.  Hit the jump for a look at the beautiful cover and see why we chose it.


Ryan L. & Kirk's Cover of the Week - The Marvelous Land of Oz #8 by Skottie Young


Ryan L.: I know it's mostly the colours and tones that make this one pop but I can't take my eyes away from this cover. It's very bright and relatively simple but I love that this pose and sense of ascension is being placed on what I assume is one of those flying monkey creatures that I've always thought were wickedly creepy/cool. As usual, Skottie Young nails yet another cover. What a shock.

Kirk:  Going to have to agree with Ryan on this one.  I love the look of this cover.  It really makes me wish I was following along in singles instead of trade waiting this (the Wizard of Oz hardcover is beautiful, so I can't really complain too much about missing out as the wait will be more than worth it) because I really want to know what's happening inside this issue.  That's what a good cover does - it makes you want to read that book no matter what.

Runner-Ups: Red Mass For Mars #4, Azrael #10 & Amazing Spider-Man #638

Except for Quesada's bits (hello, inconsistency), the art on ASM this week was really fantastic. It's a shame it had to be paired up with such horrible, awful writing.

I loved the ASM cover this week, easily the best part of the book!!

@Kirk: Sorry, it's not a flying monkey. Having read the original book by Baum (they're all really good; just a lot of fun -- I'm so happy they're getting this pretty treatment in comic form), I got a little teary-eyed when I saw this cover. It's one of those good surprise moments that seems made for comics.

Hi! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble with hackers?
My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing a few months of hard work due to no data backup.
Do you have any solutions to protect against hackers?
