Friday Faves – Sarah Millman

Hello. My name is Sarah, and I hate designing covers. There. I said it. For me, they’re probably the hardest part of making a comic. How do you sum up your entire story – something you’ve poured your heart and soul into – in one image? It has to be something that pleases current readers…

The Friday Faves – Conor Boyle – v1.5!

“Pick two”, they said, “it’ll be easy”, they said. And I fell for it. Anyway, here we are. I started by trying to apply criteria to this (design versus story telling/ traditional versus digital/ simplicity versus chaos etc etc), but the goalposts kept moving so much that I’ve abandoned any sense of them and just…

The Friday Faves – Eamonn Clarke

British cover I just love the Captain Britain run by the two Alans, Moore and Davis, particularly their portrayal of Brian Braddock as well intentioned but not all that bright. He seemed to be a supporting character in the story, always getting caught up in events way above his pay grade as the Jasper’s Warp…

The Friday Faves – Dani Abram

Hello my name is Dani, long time listener first time caller. When Rich dead-armed me into doing this, several covers sprang immediately to mind. I thought this would be easy. ‘No problem!’ I chimed. ‘Piece O’ cake!’ WRONGO. Favourite British cover? Who the what now!? I can barely categorise British comics. The only really ‘British’…

The Friday Faves – Pete Wells

Wow, my favourite covers? Are you crazy? Okay then, but I will preface this with the obligatory “This list will change in 15 minutes” trope. Favourite British cover. This is the one that really could’ve been several hundred different images-all of which would’ve been Judge Dredd related of course. My heart says choose something from…

Friday Faves – Mick Cassidy

“Alright, without delving too deep into mind-melting procrastination, here are three absolute faves. (Ask me again in fifteen minutes, there’ll be three different ones.) US cover: FANTASTIC FOUR #236 by John Byrne and Terry Austin, with pretty much every Marvel character ever. Have to be honest, was never a huge FF fan but I loved…

The Friday Faves – Mike “The Hod” Hodder

It’s the return of the Friday Faves! This week….The Hod US Cover Detective Comics 241 – Sheldon Moldoff Now I like a grim and gritty Batman as much as the next man. Dark Knight. Year One. Killing Joke. Best Batman stories ever written, obviously. But as much as I like them, they’re not really the…

The Friday Faves – Stu.Art

It’s another Friday Fave list, this time from Stuart Tipples aka Stu.Art. Comic book artist, publisher (Monkeys with Machine Guns), t-shirt designer, out of season flip-flop wearer and creator of cool,nerdy….stuff. Over to Stu. The American One Batman Detective Comics 880 – Jock Perhaps one of the most striking, graphically designed comic book covers of…

The Friday Faves – Tony Esmond

  Hey. Look at me. Invited on to choose some covers! Fancy pants Esmond! Hmmm, what to choose. It isn’t easy. Well it is kind of easy…I’m not inventing a cure for the common cold or rescuing kids from a war zone. One from the UK. One from the US and one other as a…

The Friday Faves – Kris Carter

UK Cover: My comics knowledge is CRAZY limited. Growing up as a kid in the Eighties, I was all about Transformers, and because the cartoon was so terribly distributed in the UK, I ended up being a more avid follower of Marvel’s Transformers comics. In general, I’ve found that the wider comic community really looks down…

The Friday Faves – Iz McAuliffe

The brief of this weekly blogspot is to pick your personal best UK and US covers of all time (no pressure there then), plus an honourable mention. So I’ve immediately flouted the rules, and chosen the best nostalgic covers instead !! The One from UK Comics: If anyone who knows me is reading this, they’ll probably…

The Friday Faves – PJ Holden

A guest post by PJ Holden “Pick a favourite” he said “It’ll be easy” he said. Yeah, eff you Rich. Ahem. So I had to pick one US comic covers out of every US comic cover in the world that’s ever existed ever ever and say why all the others must now burn in a…

The Friday Faves

In what will hopefully be the first of a regular thing (I already have a 2000AD artist lined up for next week) I give you the Friday Faves where we get someone to give us two of their favourite comic covers. One from UK Comics, one from US. We’ll also let them throw in one…
