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.
September's covers include masterclass composition from Genndy Tarkakovsky and Noelle Stevenson, some beautiful uses of light, color, and contrast, and some very different portraits of gods, old and new.
R.M. Guera may be one of the more under appreciated artists in comics. Guera's gritty, European-influenced line work is ideal for his recent work on the comic adaptation of Django Unchained, as well as his most notable series, the award winning Scalped, which he co-created with Jason Aaron for Vertigo. And if you asked me what artist, who had previously never illustrated a Judge Dredd story, was best suited to offer his take on Mega-City One's top cop, Guera would have been one of the first names to come to mind.
So while it isn't a surprise, it's certainly welcome news that Guera will be illustrating a Judge Dredd short story, written by Rob Williams, in the pages of 2000 AD.
Reginald Hudlin has worn a lot of hats. He's been a producer, comic writer, and director, amongst other work. Recently, Hudlin's applied two of those skills to one project, as both a producer on Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained and, as it turns out, the writer who's adapting the film into a miniseries for DC Comics, along with artist R.M. Guera.
We didn't realize when we set out to list our favorite comic books of 2012 that it had been such a fun year to be a fan of the medium that we all love so much. The last twelve months offered readers a wide variety of work ranging from the most crowd-pleasing superhero epics to the most idiosyncratic of indies; the return of much missed mangaka and the emergence of exciting new talent; a new crowd-sponsored visibility for self-publishing; and the ascension of the fan artist from bedroom dreamer to Tumblr tycoon. It was a busy a
On shelves in comic shops today is Scalped #60,the final issue of the critically acclaimed Vertigo series. Created by Jason Aaron and artist R.M. Guera, Scalped takes place in Prairie Rose, a fictional Indian Reservation in South Dakota. Described in the series as "a third world natio
Of all the news to come out of Comic-Con last month, word that Jason Aaron and R.M. Guéra's Vertigo crime series Scalpedwould end in October with issue #60 stood out as a serious bummer amid some otherwise very cool announcements, including that Aaron is set to helm Incredible Hulk at Marvel starting in October.
There are so many reasons to love Jason Aaron's Vertigo comic Scalped, a brutal crime drama about a man who returns to the Native American reservation where he grew up as an undercover FBI agent on a mission. There's the "why didn't I think of that" awesomeness of the concept, the Elmore Leonard-esque dialogue, the richness and compl
It's not as if we haven't seen action figures based on Vertigo Comics characters in the past, but it's certainly a rarer practice than, say, the reproduction of your many Wolverine, Spider-Man, Superman and Batman toys - which is exactly why Jason Aaron must be pretty thrilled that someone thought of "Scalped" during a custom toymaking venture
