Marvel is set to release an all new series featuring Red Skull and David Aja has been hired to provide the covers to the series. These are simply stunning, and deserving of an entry in the Art Appreciation Moment of the Day.
“Due to the nature of the story, I wanted to portray the historical aspects on the covers,” said Aja. “In doing so, I approached the covers as if they were real posters, newspapers and Nazi propaganda from that time, kind of in a documentary style. To make it work, I utilized different typographic techniques for each issue, emulating different typefaces in real work; so I needed a uniform tone, technique and color in the finished art to identify all the covers as a whole collection.”
Red Skull #1 arrives in July.
