Best Cover Artist
5. Jesus Saiz (Punisher)
Punisher’s new design was one of the big factors for why I picked this book up in the first place. Covers sell comics!
4. Francis Manapul (Robin)
Manapul will forever be one of my favorite artists in the game, and glad to see him doing more cover work this year.
3. Sweeney Boo
Boo is not only a fantastic interior artist, but a phenomenal cover artist! She has been doing a ton of work for DC this year.
2. Jen Bartel (She Hulk)
She hulk hasn’t looked hotter!
1. Bruno Redondo (Nightwing)
Redaondo’s layouts are just so damn creative. We rarely get interior artists that also do their own covers in mainstream superhero books, but I’m always happy to see Redondo taking on both duties.
