Normally marketing gimmicks are irritating to me, but I am strangely intrigued by the four covers TV Guide is going to have out November 8. Jim Lee, Phil Jimenez, Tim Sale, and Michael Turner are the artists providing the work that will be seen.
What gets my attention is that each artist has done some of the best work I have seen from them in this effort. As someone who has been upset by Turner's latest work, I really have to say he brings it here. Also, Lee provides some of the most photo realistic style I have seen in his work. As a longtime Jimenez groupie of sorts, I am thrilled that he has been included here. The homerun for me is Sale's gorgeous portrayal of Sylar, Maya, Monica, and Micah (pictured at right). His work on Heroes has been nothing short of phenomenol.
For a real treat, head on over to Newsarama and check out all four covers. As a comic book fan, I am happy to see such outstanding work will be seen by the general populace. It is an excellent opportunity to get some notice. As a fan of the television show, I love the fact that it is getting "covered" so beautifully. After last night's episode, I am more intrigued then ever.
What is your favorite cover?
