The Best Comic Book Cover Artists of 2013: Part Three

Best Covers of 2013 part 3

 

With hundreds of comics released to stores every month, a great cover can make a big difference. That tiny rectangle needs to grab the eye, set a mood, convey an idea, and entice a reader to pick the book up and look inside. It takes a great cover artist to get all of that right.

ComicsAlliance continues its look back at some of the best cover work in 2013 from some of the most talented cover artists in the industry. This week we pick highlights from the work of Nathan Fox (Collider/FBP), Francesco Francavilla (Black Beetle), Chip Zdarsky (Sex Criminals) and John Paul Leon (The Massive).

‘Collider’ Gets New ‘FBP: Federal Bureau Of Physics’ Title With Issue #2

FBPCover

It's fairly commonplace for comics to change creative teams or other details early on in their runs, but it's pretty rare for a comic to change its actual title between the first and second issues.

That's exactly what's happening with Simon Oliver, Robbi Rodriguez, and Rico Renzi's Vertigo series formerly known as Collider, though. Starting with issue #2, which comes out August 28, the series will be known as FBP: Federal Bureau of Physics.

Weird Jobs, Broken Physics And The Inevitability Of Change In ‘Collider’ #1 [Review]

Collider hed

Collider #1 is an attractive package. And I say package because that's really what this feels like. The way comics work, or at least the way they should work, is with every piece -- script, art, color, and lettering -- working in sync, and when everything is right, you have a good story. Sometimes great visuals carry a mediocre script, and vice versa, but that's not ideal. In Collider, the newest Vertigo series, you have a comic that works: a script from Simon Oliver, art from Robbi Rodriguez, colors from Rico Renzi, letters from Steve Wands and a cover by Nathan Fox, melding together to tell a fun story about weird physics, dangerous jobs, and the inevitability of change.

Collider is a new ongoing Vertigo series starting next month that sees its authors returning to a high concept hook that may be familiar to readers of their previous work, but from all appearances seems to be a considerable step up in style from the already enjoyable comics they've created before.
