Wednesday’s Weekly Comic Cover: Avengers Arena #1February 7th, 2013 | Posted by in Comics
I know it's Thursday; work's busy and I haven't had the creative energy to write at home so I apologize. Getting to why we're here, this is the first cover of a fun little series I stumbled upon last week. Created by Dave Johnson, the cover (and story, written by Dennis Hopeless) emulates the Japanese novel Battle Royale. Except this time, Arcade is the one gathering up teenagers for bloodsport instead of the Japanese government. Johnson has does a lot of great work, and this is the second time I've gone after one of his covers. I'm really excited that he will also be at Emerald City Comic Con this year, and I'm curious to see what work he brings along with him. Deep down, I'm hoping for this gem. But, as you can tell from the featured cover, he's done good work in a lot of different comic series, like this cover for Punisher Max #21 or this one for G.I. Joe. There are pages and pages of stuff like this so I'd definitely recommend taking some time to look though his work if you're interested.
