Great Covers – PREZ #3

Boy, they don’t make ‘em like this one anymore–if they ever did! This is the cover of PREZ, one of the most insane series ever produced by mainstream comics. And this cover by Jerry Grandinetti defies you not to pick it up and look inside.

I’ve got a few qualms–I don’t love the balloon lettering style, for example. but the contents of those balloons and how they both sum up and sell the situation is genius. The gun-sight pulls your focus to the heart of the action, and Prez, in bold red at the center, commands your attention.
