Literature / Best Comic Book Covers of January 2016
« on: January 27, 2016, 02:03:06 PM »
Browsing through new comic books is one of my favorite things to do. However now that comics are relegated to tiny stores in sparse mini-malls it's not easy to do anymore. I don't have any comic books stores where I live or where I work, so I thought I would start looking at all the cover art online. Once in a while I will post the best of the best. It will usually be around five, but not always. I will also post the worst comic book cover of the month and the best new toy release.

For January 2016...

Cry Havok #1
Cameron Stewart is one of my favorite artists. He knows how to paint, how to draw girls, and excells at graphic design. All of those talents are evident in this cover for the new werewolf tale Havok from Image.

Captain America - Marvel Cinematic Guidebook #11 by Mike Del Mundo.

I love homages and this one by Reilly Brown needs no introduction. This was only one of around 50 covers from Marvel that featured Deadpool this month.

Another great homage of a Norman Rockwell classic by Isaac Goodhart.

I just thought that this painting by Mark Brooks was beautiful and would make a great poster.

A simple but dramatic cover for Terminal Hero.

The best cover of January is...
Alex Ross of course. If there is a new piece of Ross art it will always be tough to beat.

And now for The Worst...


Why does Rob Liefeld still get work? WHY?????

Worst cover of the month goes to Bruno Olivero's Bigfoot. Not a great composition or camera angle for obvious reasons.

Best Toy goes to this Jason Todd Red Hood figure by Kotobukiya's ARTFX+. I still hate that they brought him back, but I can't deny that this toy is a great sculpt.

Worst toy goes to Brad from Rocky Horror Picture Show. ;)

I hate mornings but I might have to get up for this.

The term "flat earther" is perfect for describing non-religious people who still believe in insane unprovable hypotheseses. I.e. The Irishman doesn't believe in God but believes that plants and rocks have souls. A guy I work with believes that the Sun goes around the Earth (I'm dead serious). I would call both of them flat earthers.

I haven't seen that one yet. Looks good and violent. I will install a plugin later so we can post youtube videos on the boards.

Pull up a chair, grab a tall glass of Romulan ale, and shoot the shit with some chill ass aliens.
