Covers I Love: Punisher War Journal #15
What captures my attention is the action feel of the picture. Punisher is playing for keeps with Kraven the Hunter. I can literally feel the elbow crunching into Kraven's cheek. I appreciate the intent look on Frank's face as he fights for his life. The sheer power of the characters is shown through large, weightlifter arms and the ripples of muscle in Frank's back.
The water at the bottom of the cover adds a clever effect as does the sun shining through the top of the building. Everything about this is eye catching.
I would buy this comic off the shelf based on the visual imagery alone. What about you?
