DC Comics Best Covers of the Week 5/10/17

My Very Aunt

Here's the definitive and inarguable list of best DC Comics covers of the week, a little later than normal. I was busy! But I still compiled a nice batch of static images in glorious four-color. Or in RGB since you're looking at a screen. Let's just get to the list, it's been a long day.

Superwoman #10 variant
Renato Guedes
If you do a parody of any classic comic book cover, I'm going to like it. If a parody of Superman #1 (June 1939), I'm going to love it! Add the distressed details and rubbed off price tag and I'm such a sucker for this.

Batgirl and the Birds of Prey #10 variant
Kamome Shirahama
I almost passed this cover by, but it kept calling to me...the composition and coloring work in such harmony, it's a pleasure for your eyeballs. The different hues of purple throughout the pieces makes an otherwise muted Green Arrow stand out.

Action Comics #979 variant
Gary Frank and Brad Anderson
This is one of the most bad-ass covers I have seen in a while, particularly for fans of Superman. Funny thing is that the non-variant had all the same characters on the cover, but hovering around like a bunch of vampires. This one you want to hang on your wall and punch gleefully forever.

Shade the Changing Girl #8 variant
Jen Bartel
Folks, I don't try to pimp the Young Animal line in these lists, but when they keep coming with glorious covers like this I have to give them their due. This is like a color bonanza that looks softened, as if done with colored pencils. I think it would make a nice wallpaper pattern.

Detective Comics #956 variant
Rafael Albuquerque
Hello, menacing face behind a vertically-wielded sword bisecting the cover! This is an commonly used composition for comic book covers, and it works. We don't see the villain reflected in the sword here, but the duotone is much starker anyway.
