Adam Hughes

Cover Run: The DC Comics Art of Adam Hughes

September’s book of the month features the work of Adam Hughes.  Hughes is known for busty pin-up style figures that, although beautifully drawn, can be distasteful to some.  With that said, I personally like Hughes work because of the wonderful line work he employes as well as the overall personality his work exudes.  This Cover Run book has pages and pages of covers from a variety of DC books but it mostly focuses on Wonderwoman and Catwoman.  Each cover also has a small story “behind the scenes” as well as some sketches and thumbs for that particular cover.  Unfortunately the book is limited to Hughes’ DC work, so no Ghost, Tomb raider or any other non-DC characters but regardless, the book is a great collection of his work and one I highly recommend.
