Cover of the Week

Happy New Comic Day! On Monday, I looked at the releases for the week just to see how many books I'd likely be picking up. That number may have changed as I looked over the covers for this post. There are a ton of good looking books hitting shelves today. Marvel has more coming from the NOW! movement. Beyond that, there are plenty of great Indie books including one of my favorites, Thief of Thieves #10 from Image Comics. You can find me on Twitter talking more about the rest of the books in stores today.

I'm sure you skipped ahead to see the beautiful piece from Ryan Ottley. If you actually read first, now you can check out the cover on a book I like to call Invincible #97.

I like when artists do what Ottley did here, which was present the character in two fashions by using a reflective surface. I can't think of a time when I didn't like how an artist used that. For this cover, the main characters image is seen in blood. The blood itself looks great as well. Another interesting bit is he appears to have a different costume on in his reflection. All I know about this issue is it delves into the character's origin. I'm a bit behind on reading this series, so I won't get to this one for a while.

What do you think? Let us know. Thanks for looking.
