Travis Charest Cover Gallery and Checklist

Travis Charest is an amazing artist and few people will dispute that. The amount of work he puts out there, however, is not tremendous, so it's easy to forget about him. That's why I thought this checklist is a good idea: it will refresh his art on the mind of his biggest fans, give a few books to chase to those who occasionally come across his covers and want more and possibly convert a few people who don't know him or were not doing comics during the time he was able to get books done.

If everything goes according to the plan, I will publish an accompanying article tomorrow focusing on his sketchbooks and some other stuff. I really like his work, who can blame me?

As always, I will start with a couple of favorite covers before the actual checklist:

The Wildcats / X-Men issue is the one where Travis Charest fully sheds his Jim Lee skin (which he had gradually been doing since he took over Wildcats) and becomes one of the most interesting and detailed artists in the industry (probably the main reason why we don't see more of his work). The composition and lighting for both Astonishing X-Men #31 and Star Wars are a delight. And the Spider-Men #5 cover I am including because the published version covers a crucial part of the design (the car on top). Again another deceptively simple idea from a new angle.

So, if you like his stuff, check out the following Travis Charest cover gallery and checklist, there's something there for everyone!!!
