A great comic book cover is an advertisement, a work of art, a statement, and an invitation. A great comic book cover is a glimpse of another world through a canvas no bigger than a window pane. In Best Comic Book Covers Ever (This Month), we look back over some of the most eye-catching, original and exceptional covers of the past month.
August offers a feast of shape and color, with striking covers by Scott Fischer, Victor Santos, Chrystin Garland, and Tula Lotay, some bold juxtaposition, and a quirky take on a pulp archetype or two -- including a Nazi airship and some poor sap being held in a giant hand. It's a classic!
Over the past couple of years, Rick Remender has done a pretty solid job of balancing his work for Marvel with creator-owned titles. In addition to his work on Captain America, he's launched Black Science with Matteo Scalera and Deadly Class with Wesley Craig and Lee Loughridge, and now, he and artist Greg Tocchini are reuniting for a new sci-fi series called Low.
Launched in October, Ian Edginton and Francesco Trifogli's Hinterkind is a fantasy tale of a post apocalyptic Earth, in which humanity was all but completely wiped out by what is known as "The Blight." Series protagonist Prosper Monday, who has spent her entire life living in a village hidden away in an otherwise abandoned Central Park in Manhattan, is forced to leave the village for the first time to search for her missing grandfather, and in her travels in the wild she'll deal with all manner of challenges, including the beings known as The Hinterkind.
Featuring excellent cover work by Greg Tocchini, Hinterkind is part of Vertigo's latest wave of titles, and the publisher has provided ComicsAlliance with a six page preview of this week's Hinterkind #4, which you can view below.

All we know for sure is that Remender will be writing and Greg Tocchini will be handling illustrative duties - or at least, that's what we can infer based on traditional creative team credit placement on teasers in the past.Given Remender's flair
