A beautiful or striking cover is always the work of someone who is both a smart designer and a gifted artist. Comic cover artists need to know how to use what little space they have to not only make an impression but also hint at a compelling story.
In these final weeks of 2013, ComicsAlliance is going to look back at our picks of the best cover artists working in comics today with a small selection of each of their covers. This week we showcase the work of Brian Churilla (Blackacre), Adam Hughes (Fairest), Mahmud A. Asrar (Supergirl) and Declan Shalvey (Winter Soldier.)
