Cover Run: The DC Comics Art of Adam Hughes

Cover Run: The DC Comics Art of Adam Hughes is a fantastic coffee table book showcasing the incredibly talented Adam Hughes. The bulk of the book is primarily on his Wonder Woman and Catwoman run of covers that were very well received by fans and artists alike. If you know anything about Mr. Hughes, you will definitely have an idea of just how popular he is within the art community and how popular the covers were, which always had people buzzing with excitement and anticipation of what he could do to top it.

The book is very "light" on prose as the artwork does the majority of the talking. That's not to say that Adam doesn't have anything to say. He does. In fact, most of what he dishes out in information about each piece that's highlited is his thought process behind it and how and why he chose to work a certain why to achieve his covers. He also goes into some background stuff that you will find interesting. I really like the way the book is constructed with his page layout. Every two pages is devoted to one particular cover (the opposite page) with the other page taking up a paragraph of text with smaller covers, along with Sketches of said Cover and other thumbnails.

What's funny about this book is that it's half the size of The Art of Todd McFarlane and yet it took twice as long to get through Cover Run. You really spend a great deal of time soaking up all the amazing stuff that Adam has produced over the years. This isn't something to just casually look at and move on. To get the most out of the book, you really need to look at it all, which are the finer details in each piece. I highly recommend this as a Buy.
