Most months, it’s difficult to spot a trend that encompasses a good number of our favorites covers. Our tastes are broad, and the field of cover art is ever innovative in its attempts to draw in readers. During July, though, a particular theme dominated: fields of color. Mike Collins’ Apollo, Lee Garbett’s Bone Parish #1, Travis Charest’s Star Wars #50 and at least a half-dozen other July covers employ bold seas of single colors to make their central illustrations pop. Even Ryan Ottley’s lizard-attack Amazing Spider-Man #2 wouldn’t work nearly as well without Frank Martin’s array of yellows providing a backdrop. Perennial favorite Jenny Frison, who makes this list almost every month with her Wonder Woman variants, got the memo too: check that suffocating black inching in around Diana’s Lady Justice cosplay. Don’t let it be said that we were overly slavish to a theme, though—there’s still plenty of room for goofy fun like Moon Girl’s office cameo.
