5.0 out of 5 stars A quality compilation of comic covers Feb. 12 2009
By Parka HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
Length: 0:11 Mins
This is a great compilation of all the covers for 52 (wiki) as illustrated by J.G. Jones, coloured by Alex Sinclair.

It's a hardcover book with a dust jacket. On the dust jacket is a glimpse of what's inside the book. There's a little introduction by Mark Chiarello, Editorial Art Director of DC Comics, who talks about getting J.G. Jones on board to do the covers.

In the book are the covers and the multiple concept sketches done for the them. All the covers are captioned to explain the inspiration behind. Most of the accompanying quick sketches are coloured. For every cover produced, you can see all the unused cover concepts that go behind. Oh, the art for the covers are brilliant, but you know that already.

Also included is the process of creating the 52 logo and trade dress.

There is a small section on how Alex Sinclair colours his work. It's not a tutorial but general enough to know what's going on.

If you like the comic, this book is for you.

There are more pictures of the book on my blog. Just visit my Amazon profile for the link.

5.0 out of 5 stars 52 weeks of amazing art May 18 2012
By Karthik Nagarajan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
J.G.Jones produces an outstanding masterpiece with his cover art collection for the DC Comics Series "52".

Each cover tells its own story and this compilation has more about the evolution of each cover and the elements of story that it had to represent.

Week 14 and Week 40 covers are my absolute favorite!

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome work Dec 13 2007
By M. Morrison - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
J.G.Jones is a very creative artist and a really hard worker to have worked on each drawing for 52 weeks straight!! If you followed any of the 52 comics you know you were getting a real treat each week. The covers are just wonderful and real eye candy for those who appreciate that art that comes out of the comicbook community. If you want a good coffee table book or something to inspire you, get this collection. It will knock your shoes off and anyone else who happens to look at it if its out on your coffee table.
