DC Comics Best Covers of the Week, April 11 2018

All These Covers Were Vetted

Sort of a shorter list of comic books coming from DC Comics this week, which of course means a shorter list of comic book covers. But I still picked five of 'em for this list! That's the deal I made with Neron, and I'm not about to break it now. Give it a peek see!

Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #42
Rafa Sandoval, Jordi Tarragona, Tomeu Morey
Hello folks, I'd like to introduce you to the greatest art team currently working on the Green Lantern books. Whenever these three are involved, you're about to see something spectacular. Heck, any one of them will probably blow your mind under the correct circumstances. Ironically, this particular cover is just alright looking. But when they get on those interiors, look out!

Batgirl and the Birds of Prey #21variant
Kamome Shirahama
Am I made of stone? Am I not human, of flesh and blood? Of course I'm gonna chuckle at this cute homage to the cover from Action Comics #1, as well as commend its shading and composition. And look, Superman is going to squash a cat! This cover is just darling.

Supergirl #20 variant
Stanley "Artgerm" Lau
I know they've sold like gangbusters, and this is the last Artgerm variant for Supergirl (as well as the last issue of the series.) I gotta be honest, there's something a little weird, almost porcelain about the texturing in these images. But there's also a little something like "wow, this guy knows how to do the fuck out of some art."

Trinity #21 variant
Bill Sienkiewicz
I really like bad-ass Wonder Woman. Jenny Frisson, handling the variants on WW's title, has been doing exemplary work, depicting Diana in very hopeful, uplifting scenes. But I like the ones where it looks like she's going to chop your balls off. The muted tone and the visual loss of her legs somehow make this look more threatening.

Detective Comics #978 variant
Rafael Albuquerque
Why isn't there a World's Finest book for crying out loud?! You can't show an awesome image like this and not expect me to wonder. Though if it's going to be crap like that Batman/Superman was for most of its run, you can forget it.
