The Best Comic Book Covers of March 2017

Our favorite March eye candy shows how much perspective has shifted throughout comics’ artistic evolution. Whereas mid- and long shots dominated most (not all) phases of cover art from the Golden to Modern Ages of sequential art, Tyler Crook shows how unconventional angles can provide huge emotional payoffs. The Harrow County artist casts doom and anxiety by tilting his “camera” down at a shoe engulfed by blood and serpents. Likewise, Jason Howard and Dave Johnson also embrace the bird’s-eye view for their respective work on Horizon and Bullseye, using a long slope to illustrate their protagonists emerging from ordeals filled with toil and violence. Nick Derington’s bold jacket to Doom Patrol breaks most of our rules—we’d rarely endorse a cover without more storytelling context. But that unflinching portrait of Robotman feels like a relic from a Fritz Lang film, heightened by Tamra Bonvillain’s minimalist colors. David Rubin (Ether), Richard Corben (Shadows on the Grave), Becky Cloonan (Shade, The Changing Girl), Dave McKean (American Gods) and many more round out our favorite covers of March.
