I’ve been doing these color themed cover posts every so often, and, you might not have noticed, but I’ve actually been doing them in order of the rainbow. I’ve already done red, orange, and yellow, so today we’ve reached green!
Green was significantly harder than I thought it’d be. I mean, it’s green! You’d think that wouldn’t be hard to find. I also ran into the issue of such varying shades of the color, which threatened to ruin my collage, but I managed ;-) So here are the covers!
Oftentimes I’ll love the artwork on a cover but won’t really like the whole design with the font and placement and everything, but I think all of these were designed really well!
My favorite of this bunch is Lost Boy. This is the UK version of the cover, and I’m so jealous because it’s so artistic and gorgeous! Hot Lead, Cold Iron is eye-catching, and I love the look of the urban setting with the green magic. New World Rising is beautifully done with that smoky/powdery look. The Master Magician is simple but pretty, and I like how the covers for that series match their stories (it’s the only one this list that I’ve read so far, although there are some others here that I want to read). Seven Trees of Stone looks very cool with the branches twining around and the intense look of the character (though unfortunately that cover has been changed since I put this post together).
The Hunt has a very eerie feel with some nice artwork. Dan & Frankie’s is interesting, especially when you look closer and realize there are little drawings in the smoke. A Taste for Monsters has this fantastic surreal illustrated look to it. Dead Stars is simple but creepy and stands out. The Beautiful Ones is also simple, but a nice use of silhouette to make a pretty cover.
Overall it’s a great batch!
