Pretty Comics

Just a bunch of comics covers, of books to be released this year, inspired by these beauties from Eddie Campbell...



..and Jason.



As I've said before, graphic novel cover design is unusual, in that the creators of the book more often than not get to design the book, too: many writers of pure text would wish they could do the same, I'm sure.

Here are some more that caught my eye.







The titleless cover with the skull and the White House is Mike Huddlestone's The Homeland Directive.

Thanks for the title-- the cover of the Homeland Directive is superb. Doesn't it make you want to go out and buy it, just so you can see what's inside?

I feel the same way--I know nothing about it other than the cover and title, but I want it!

I'm very taken by Eddie Campbell's work. I keep trying to read From Hell, and frankly it's him that keeps me going.

The art in 'From Hell' is amazing. I did enjoy the writing, if that's the word for a work so grim, but it's very heavy and dense and dark.
