Mexican born artist Jose Ladronn Is an Eisner award winning artist probably best known for his 3 year stint doing interior work on Cable. He is a talented visual storyteller, as evident by his rather expressive covers. Ladronn has a great talent for previewing a story with a cover, so that the reader knows exactly what to expect once they open up the book. Check out a showcase of his covers after the jump!
With Ladronn's current work on All Star Western, he has adopted a soft painted style that matches the tone of the book. It really has a great classic western comic look.
Ladronn's work on the Spirit is so full of character. He fit's so much story onto one page, it's uncanny.
The below cover is one of my all time favourites. It's so emotive, and tell's such a wonderful story.
The decision to not show the head of the femme fatale was artistically brilliant - it gives her so much power.
