June Previews Killer B Spotlight Books and Covers

It’s an Artgerm, the man who really knows how to draw women. It’s no wonder they got him doing Catwoman and Supergirl variants.

This next one is no different and it seems Artgerm is taking a different approach to his covers.

Catwoman #14 Artgerm

Catwoman #14 (Card Stock Variant)

A secret file out-lining the ins and outs of the criminal underworld of Villa Hermosa is on the streets, and every crook is after it.

Whoever possesses this info can control everything, and some of the town’s hoods are even bringing in outside agents like Lock-Up and Gentleman Ghost to act as their champions-which, let’s face it, you’re going to need if you’re going to try to outsmart Catwoman.

Making things even more dangerous for Selina Kyle, there is also a price on her head. If you can capture the database and kill the Catwoman, the payoff is double!

This one is also a card stock cover but this looks like it’s straight out of a Disney animated cell from a movie. This is just a great looking cover that would look nice in a frame with Artgerm’s signature on it.

Clayton Crain is a hit or miss for me. Most of the time it’s a hit, he’s a great artist and this next one is one of those I can say is pretty sweet.

Justice League Dark #14 Crain Variant

Justice League Dark #14 (Crain Variant)

The rules of magic have changed forever, and the Justice League Dark is ready to keep the peace in the magical world!

But that peace will be shattered as Circe takes center stage, gathering a team of magic’s most dangerous monsters to take control of magic once and for all!

It’s also not a card stock cover so you save a buck off the price. What I don’t understand is why some of these Villain themes are card stock while others aren’t. One would think they would be consistent across all the issues with the same cover stock type.

Spider-Man Velocity

Marvels Spider-Man Velocity #1 (of 5) (Dellotto Variant)


Dennis ‘Hopeless’ Hallum continues the saga of the spectacular SPIDER-MAN with an ALL-NEW story set in the Gamerverse! How and why did PETER PARKER build the armored VELOCITY SUIT seen in the Marvel’s Spider-Man video game? Find out here! After the events of CITY AT WAR, SPIDER-MAN continues to balance his colliding worlds as he attempts to protect New York City against super villains like SWARM, while reporter MARY JANE WATSON delves deep into an investigation with legendary Daily Bugle journalist BEN URICH.

Learn the never-before-told backstory behind the popular VELOCITY SUIT as unexplainable occurrences bedevil the city and our heroes come face-to-face with…a poltergeist?! Illustrated by Emilio Laiso (CHAMPIONS, STAR WARS: DOCTOR APHRA), with eye-popping covers by the inimitable SKAN, you won’t want to miss a panel of the first all-original story following up the worldwide hit video game!

It’s just a great looking Dell ‘Otto.  Nuff said!

Thanos #5 (of 6) (Yoon Bobg Variant)

Mutiny aboard Zero Sanctuary! As Butcher Squadron launches a rebellion against the Mad Titan, will Thanos be able to quell their revolt? Or will he have to turn their space station into a bloodbath in order to hold onto power?

I almost passed over this one. But after staring at it for a bit, I realized it’s different and I like different.

It feels like it’s right out of a video game screen shot for me. I also love Thanos so that helps as well.

This one definitely captures the classic looking Thanos as well.

Marvel might do better sales if they released cover art ahead of time during the pre-order process. Determining killer B variants out of them is hard when 80% of the covers have “Cover Art Coming Soon”.

    1. “it seems Artgerm is taking a different approach to his covers.”

      How so? Seems the same to me. Cat in a very interesting location, and tail seems to be strategically placed.

      That’s the subtle suggestive Artgerm I’ve always known….

      1. Nah, the style is a bit different with this one. Same as the previous Catwoman. Maybe since they’re drawn in a more vintage way it’s giving that impression… Hmm.. I do think his Catwoman’s are better than his Supergirls. The Supergirls were the same thing, over and over and over again…
