Horror News Network’s Comic Awards 2017: Best Cover

Horror News Network’s Award for Best Cover of 2017 has been awarded to Titan Comics’ Hookjaw #5 (Nick Percival Cover).

Percival’s cover art captures the best aspects of the relaunch of the controversial Action weekly series from the 1970’s, with the titular shark ready to chomp a helpless victim, while a fellow diver looks on in horror.  Percival, an artist who has worked for nearly ever comic book publisher as well as Wizards of the West Coast and multiple video game designers, produced more than a dozen excellent covers for the U.K. company in 2017.  His cover for Hookjaw #5 stands out due to his distinct style of painting, and like classic Tales from the Crypt and Creepy covers, it is the type of cover that immediately draws the eye of the horror fan browsing the racks of their local comic shop. read more

Horror News Network’s 2016 Comic Awards: Best Cover Illustration

Horror News Network is proud to present the 2016 Best Cover Illustration Award to Bill Sienkiewicz for his artwork on Survivors Club #8. 

The nightmare enducing image is one of many by Sienkiewicz this year.  Sienkiewicz has been the only cover artist for the Vertigo Comics series and with images like this one, it is no surprise as to why.  Survivors Club (written by Lauren Beukes and David Halvorson with art by Ryan Kelly) focuses on six children of the 80’s who all experienced supernatural events in their lives at a young age and as adults they form a type of support/investigative group when odd things begin happening to them again. read more
