Comic Cover(s) Of The Week

A Dynamic Duo Of Delightfully Dazzling And Delectable Drawings…

“Well hey there fellow fans of fantastic fiction and welcome once again to another enticing episode of Comic Cover Of The Week. And this week we have some rather resplendent renderings for your discerning delectation!”

DC Comics’ recent imprint – Black Label is a line of limited series aimed at a mature audience that began with the somewhat controversial (though, not in my opinion) Batman: Damned in September of 2018. Building upon the success of that first mini-series, DC subsequently launched several new Black Label series which include – Batman: Last Knight On Earth, Superman: Year One, and most recently  ‘Harleen’. Their newest recent entry to this distinctly adult line is the Kami Garcia penned – Joker/Harley: Criminal Sanity, and the variant cover by marvellous Mike Mayhew is an absolute corker, it has to be said.

Stunning Photo-realistic Variant Cover By Marvellous Mike Mayhew

Joker/Harley: Criminal Sanity charts the first meeting of one Dr Harleen Quinzel and the Jester of GenocideKami Garcia offers up an interesting twist on the titular troublesome twosome by re-imagining Harley as forensic psychologist and criminal profiler tasked with helping to hunt down a prolific serial killer with a penchant for murderous theatrics known only as The Joker. Joker/Harley; Criminal Insanity is scheduled for a nine issue run and is available from your local comic-book emporium right now, and in our opinion is well worth investing your time in if you’re in any way, shape, or form a fan of Ms Quinzel and Mr J.

And next on our cosmically cool and collectable comic cover countdown is this really rather rapturous rendering from wonderful Warren Louw of the pernicious plant powered eco-terrorist Poison Ivy.

Poison Ivy Perfection By Warren Louw!

Continuing on from last month’s premiere issue, we find our lovable (yet highly dangerous) duo, Harley and Ivy on the run from the fractious felon Floronic Man, who is determined to force Ivy to accept her place in connection to the green. With Gotham City even more unstable and treacherous than ever thanks to its recent overthrow and internment by SuperVillain Bane, Harley and Ivy literally dive into a rabbit hole by seeking sanctuary with none other than former Arkham patient Jervis Tetch, more infamously known as The Mad Hatter. Yet what they’re about to experience couldn’t be further removed from a Wonderland!

  1. The Mike Mayhew cover is exceptional. Look how you can see the city through the lower parts of the leather jacket, and that sky full of bones!
