Adi Granov’s variant cover for Captain Marvel #1. Damn.
Back to Marvel comics for January 2011: there is something about an Adi Granov visual that just shouts, ‘This is a cover!’, a certain quality that makes it stand out as an attention-grabbing image of a particular quality, and the cover for Captain America: Hail Hydra #1 is no different.
New York Comic-Con is happening now, which means that lots of new comic books are being announced. I am not there, because I live in the UK, so I will post some of the lovely images that accompany the news. This is the image was the teaser for Astonishing Captain America, written by Andy Diggle and drawn by Adi Granov. It’s a pretty cool image.
Marvel comics for May 2010: I really like Adi Granov’s style anyway, and he had me with an ensemble cover containing X-Men, but the sense of the ephemeral nature of the hero is rather breathtaking, I think. This is the cover to New Mutants #13.
Marvel comics for March 2010: Adi Granov brings his cool and shiny style to the cover for X-Men: Second Coming #1. It’s the glowing eyes that pull the eyes in.
I saw this on Fuen’s blog, vagueando, a long time ago but didn’t get round to reblogging it before. However, it’s been so long, I decided to post it as an original but with credit due. The image is a Superman and Batman commission by Adi Granov.
Marvel comics for December: I like Adi Granov covers, I think. There’s something about the almost idealistic smooth quality to them, and they way he doesn’t sexualise the women (compare this to David Finch’s cover to Psylocke #2, for example). Ergo, I like this cover to X-Men: Legacy #231.
