Cover of the Week - Wonder Woman and Hellblazer

With the near overwhelming number of comics on stands this week, it was no small feat determining which ones deserved our coveted Cover of the Week award.  However, we've somehow found a way to make the hard call, and while you may wonder at our choices, we think you'll ultimately understand where the blazers we were coming from.  We'll see you on the other side of the cut for less puns and more covers!

Ken's Cover of the Week - Wonder Woman #15 by Cliff Chiang

Ken: I really like mirrored covers like this, where you get a character bounced off a shiny image like Orion's helmet or Iron Man's face. Sometimes an artist overcompensates and makes the image more distorted than it needs to be, but Chiang does a good job of still making Diana look prominent. Plus you have Orion's eye of awe as he's about to get punched.

Grant's Cover of the Week - Hellblazer #298 by Simon Bisley

Grant: Now this is one creepy cover!  The image of a full blown skeleton (and one looking rather the worse for wear at that) wearing a strange Constantine mask and lighting up a cigarette is incredibly striking and hard to ignore.  The whole thing is slightly off-putting  but in a good way.  I particularly like the warm yellow background around the fire juxtaposed with the cold blue around the skeleton.  A nice little life / death touch there by Bisley.

Runner-Ups:  Comeback #2, Saga #8, Uncanny X-Force #35

Nice post. I learn something new and challenging on websites I stumbleupon
every day. It will always be interesting to read through content from other writers and use something from other web sites.

happening with this paragraph which I am reading at
this place.

Hi exceptional blog! Does running a blog like this
require a massive amount work? I've very little knowledge of computer programming but I had been hoping to start my own blog soon. Anyway, should you have any suggestions or tips for new blog owners please share. I know this is off subject but I just needed to ask. Appreciate it!

I hardly comment, however i did a few searching and wound up here
"Cover of the Week - Wonder Woman and Hellblazer". And I do
have a couple of questions for you if you do not mind.

Is it simply me or does it look like a few
of these comments come across like they are coming from
brain dead visitors? :-P And, if you are posting on
additional places, I would like to keep up with anything fresh
you have to post. Would you list of all of your community sites like your Facebook page, twitter feed,
or linkedin profile?

Heya this is somewhat of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if
you have to manually code with HTML. I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding know-how so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
