On the Cover: Amnda Conner

Irish American Amanda Conner began her career doing interiors for Archie, and has developed into an outstanding artist. Conner, the wife of top comics scribe Jimmy Palmiotti, has a quirky, comedic style. While all her figures tend to be proportionally correct, their is a real sense of stylisation, largley due to the whimsical nature of her illustrations. Check out some of her work after the jump!

The facial expressions make this cover. It's hard not smile.

The warriors for in a chorus line is just about the most ridiculous thing I've heard of. That's why this works so well.

While the characters take centre stage, it is the intricate rose pool they are standing on that is the champion of this cover.

This is a parody of one of the most parodied cover in comics, but remains fresh here.
