Best DC Comics Covers of the Week 9/20/17

A Little of Everything

This week's list is all over the place, in terms of DC Comics' publishing program. But there's one thing unifying all of them: they are all the best covers to come out from DC Comics this week. Period! End of discussion. Just check out the list and accept the facts.

Batwoman #7
Ben Oliver
This monochromatic image with a stretched-out Scarecrow face is, in fact, a little bit creepy. That's no simple feat to pull off on a comic book cover. Composing a giant head next to a little running person is telling a miniature scary story.

Trinity #13 variant
Bill Sienkiewicz
Here's a style that didn't scream "Bill Sienkiewicz" to me, probably because it isn't all scratch and splotched per the style of art we've seen most recently from him. But it is in accord with Bill's work in that this is a very alluring, etheral image. Plus, put Zatanna in an image and I will look on with glee.

The Flash #30 variant
Howard Porter & Hi-Fi
I kept coming back to this cover. I'm not sure if its the perspective, or the varying shades of red being used, or even just the Flash's gritted teeth, but this cover seems really dynamic and urgent to me. This is the kind of cover that makes me want to flip through the issue.

Super Sons #8
Jorge Jimenez and Alejandro Sanchez
Here's a cover that fairly well tells you what you'll be getting on the inside: a lot of high action and fun times with Damien scowling a lot. Casting Jon's part of the image in an orange hue and Damien's in a cooler blue is a nice touch, as well.

Aquaman #28
Stjepan Sejic
Oh Stjepan Sejic, you could run away with this list every week, if you had covers then. Though he did do the cover to this week's Nightwing, and I didn't like that as much. In this one, I like the perspective, the faces, and the scary monster. And the detail. And coloring. It's incredible, enough said.
