Andi Ewington: Top 5 Covers
This week we ask Andi Ewington (co-writer on 451 Media's Exmortis, S6x and Sunflower and the upcoming and self-published Overrun) what some of his favourite comic covers are. In fact, he was so generous with his time that we even got to interview him, coming up in a few days!
I’m a huge Jock fan ever since he worked on a page of mine in ‘Forty-Five’ – this piece in particular is so clever on so many levels that it encapsulates the way Jock’s brain works.
I’ve loved Brian Bolland’s work ever since I saw his precise lines in Judge Dredd, but for me the effectiveness of this cover lies in the stillness of the Joker, it oozes quality.
This is right in your face action, I love how the claws feel like they are about to rip right through you.
Nice Graphic design piece for the social age, understated but says so much about the storyline without being overly complicated. Perfect design.
Nostalgic blast from the past, I remember picking this issue up as a kid – that cover is an artist's nightmare and I feel pity every time I look at it.
