Omega Versus the Robot Horde

Omega #9 - Illustration by Farel Dalrymple, Paul Hornschemeier

I dread looking through the Marvel covers each week because there are so many uninspired heroic images of dudes in tights — but this cover for Omega #9 caught my eye right away. Firstly the graphic designer in me loves the hand lettering at the top, it’s very unslick but shows a great deal of charm. And then the illustration hits you: Our hero is having a bad time of it! Not only won’t his super powers out wit the robots, but there seem to be a few working class bubbas in the horde looking for a piece of Omega. The humor is great, the draftsmanship is good, and even the crude coloring technique adds to it all. Credit for the cover goes to Farel Dalrymple and Paul Hornschemeier — and Omega hits the stores this week on Wednesday, June 4th, 2008.
