Comic Cover Of The Week: Robson Rocha Tribute – Catwoman #31

This episode of Comic Cover Of The Week is dedicated to the terrific talent that was Robson Rocha, the DC Comics artist who passed away suddenly on Sunday at the age of 41.

Robson was a force to be reckoned with in the world of comic books, getting his inaugural start at DC Comics in 2010, where he was responsible for the art duties on DC’s New 52 titles that included such gems as Batman/Superman and Birds of Prey. Signing exclusively with DC in 2016, Robson went on to showcase his extraordinary artistic talents on several DC Rebirth titles such as – Supergirl, Green Lanterns, and Teen Titans, and, of course, his almost peerless run on Aquaman. These titles showcased his inordinate expertise in exquisite detail and fine line work, but unfortunately his promising career was cut short by Covid 19 complications on Sunday, June 13, when he was taken from the world at just 41 years of age.

The lead image from Catwoman #31 is my favourite cover by Robson, with a close second being the above portrayal of a smooching Arthur Curry and Mera from Aquaman #65. His talent and presence will be missed, and our thoughts and best wishes go out to Robson’s family and friends at this time.
