DC Comics Digital Sneak Peeks: 19 June 2013

My first selection this week is the opening page from the first issue of Brother Lono, a story within 100 Bullets by writer Brian Azzarello, artist Eduardo Risso and colourist Trish Mulvihill. The appeal comes from the simplicity of the drawing, the striking use of contrast and the subtle use of colour.

Here J.H. Williams III enlivens the familiar concept of a monster threatening the hero by twisting the angle slightly (I heartily approve) and using red to both frame the picture and to suggest blood.

This page from Green Lantern New Guardians gets noticed because of the shark and the way that the rest of the story has to be positioned around it. I like the detail too, such as the markings on the shark's tail rocket.

Another strong heroine and lots more red only this time it is not the heroine who looks to be in danger but whoever it is that she is up against. It is her power and determination that makes this a striking image.
