Every Wednesday I pick my favorite cover from all the comic books that came out during the week…today’s pick goes to Invincible #76 by Ryan Ottley & FCO Plascencia.
Mark Grayson (Invincible) isn’t new to our Cover of the Week column but it seems like it always takes him getting a beating for us to pick him. I credit this mostly to Ryan Ottley’s incredible ability to capture action; I love a heroic-pose punch or strike as much as the next fan but Ryan Ottley always seems to capture a moment at it’s absolute highest amount of tension, where the emotion, drama, and action is at it’s greatest. And once in awhile adds another panel to the cover where they’re otherwise would be ‘wasted’ space, giving us that much more of the story. As I browsed over all the covers this week I kept coming back to this one, feeling bad for Mark and thinking, “Dang. That looks like it hurts.”
And if you like the cover Ryan Ottley also does the interior. Invincible continues to be one of the more underrated book and shouldn’t be passed up by superhero fans.
