DC comics for October 2012: I’m still keeping this Tumblr free of Before Watchmen covers, which is annoying when so many are by great artists, so only one cover from this month’s solicitations. This is the cover to Ame-Comi Girls #1: Featuring Wonder Woman, drawn by Amanda Connor, which is of course a really good visual because she is an awesome artist.
DC comics for March 2011: is there anyone in mainstream comic books at the moment who is better at facial features than Amanda Conner? This is the cover to Jimmy Olsen #1 and it another great example of what she can do.
Marvel comics for December 2010: this is the cover to Warriors Three #2 by Amanda Conner. It is another very straightforward idea, but Conner’s art and facial expressions really sell the concept.
Warren Ellis posted this lovely cover by Amanda Conner to the collection of Two-Step, written by Ellis and drawn by Conner. And I had to post it as well.
Marvel comics for August 2010: Amanda Conner draws a really good Black Cat and a really good cover, as displayed in this cover to Amazing Spider-Man Presents: Black Cat #3.
This is the cover to Girl Comics #1 by Amanda Conner. Girl Comics is a three-issue anthology from Marvel Comics where all the creators are female: editing, writing, pencilling, inking, lettering, colouring. The announcement has caused quite a kerfuffle in the comics blogosphere (see this follow-up piece on The Beat), which only goes to show what a strange industry comic books are. My thoughts: it’s a shame that we need to have this anthology, but mainstream superhero comic books are a boys’ club and it’s great to have women being allowed to shine, especially with the fantastic collection of creators involved. I’ll be picking it up; I mean, the cover is fantastic, isn’t it?
DC comics for February 2010: this is a really nice cover by Amanda Conner for Gen13 #34. It’s cheeky yet has an arresting power.
Final image from the DC solicitations: the cover for Ambush Bug: Year None #3, drawn by Amanda Conner. I can’t wait for this series.
