Do! Judge A Book By Its Cover Issue 91: Graphics Novels & Comic Books (Part 4)

Do! Judge A Book By Its Cover is a regular feature on Pop! Goes The Reader in which I pay tribute to some of the best and brightest the publishing world has to offer in the way of book cover design. This feature is inspired by Katie’s feature Cover Love on her blog One Page At A Time. The idea is being used with her gracious permission.

Some of my favourite covers this week include Blackbird by Sam Humphries, Outcast: This Little Light by Robert Kirkman, Batgirl: Summer of Lies by Hope Larson, Snotgirl: Green Hair Don’t Care by Bryan Lee O’Malley, Forgiveness Is Really Strange by Marina Cantacuzino and Masi Noor, ApocalyptiGirl: An Aria For The End Times by Andrew MacLean and Tomb Raider: Survivor’s Crusade by Jackson Lanzing and Collin Kelly.

Please Note: I’ve done my best to credit the designers, artists and illustrators responsible for the beautiful covers below whenever possible. If you know of an uncredited contributor responsible for any of these designs, please let me know and I would be happy to include proper attribution in this post. Their work is lovely and deserves to be credited.
