David Messina: Top 5 covers
After working on (amongst others) IDW's Angel, Star Trek, True Blood and Infestation, Messina is making everybody pay extra attention to his wonderful work on Catwoman. Don't take my word for it, though, just take a look at his blog!
AMAZING SPIDERMAN 121
… because it was my first comic book ever!
After the shocking reading of the 2 issues with Gwen Stacy's death I completely fell in love with the sequential art!
After all these years that cover is still a mix of modern design layout and iconic and powerful image (despite we see the hero's back)
It's one of these cover where along the powerful and iconic image we can find a strong hint about the story inside, something that wants you to know more, and if that wasn't enough: hey, it's the KING!
One cover where we can find everything is important about Catwoman: the sensuality of the character, her elegance, Gotham itself.
Everything in one single powerful and iconic image!
HELLBOY: SEED OF DESTRUCTION TPB
Along with Kirby, Mike Mignola is for me the most powerful and iconic artist in the comic business.
In this cover done for the book where Mignola introduce his most famous character to the world, we ve everything we need to know about his creature.
Only one powerful image which tell us everything we need to know about what's inside!
THE KILLING JOKE
With this single close up of the Joker, Brian Bolland put us close to the madness of the character.
The idea of the Joker taking a picture (a way to take memories of our lives) as cover of a story where we see a painful memory of his past it's simply perfect in my humble opinion!
