As temperatures cliff-drop into the single digits and below, the best cover art of December offers an oasis of warm, kinetic imagery to counter the chilly weather. ACO opens the doors to hell in Midnighter and Apollo #3, Jakub Rebelka ignites a sand-ravaged race in Namesake #2 and Greg Smallwood crosses a mind-melt monument in the Egyptian desert for Moon Knight #9. Elsewhere this month, Jeff Lemire designs a minimalist, haunting cover that begs the question of what’s inside A.D. After Death protagonist Jonah Cooke, Becky Cloonan offers a glimpse into the swirling sea of emotions inhibiting Shade, The Changing Girl’s Loma and David Rubin continues to blow our minds with the dimension-cutting cover to Ether #2.
