The wraparound cover for Joe Casey and Tom Scioli's GØDLAND #12 just screams Comicraft, doesn't it? If the design itself doesn't give them away, the near-trademark blue and orange does.

It's busy (chaotic?) and unconventional, to be sure, but Scioli, Richard Starkings & Co. pull it off. I can see a few retailers being confused by a logo that starts on the back cover, but I love that "GØDLAND" feels as if it's sweeping across the image. It's in motion. It's larger than life. It's epic. I also like that the art interacts with the type as the spaceship -- is that what it is? -- rockets through the opening in the "A."

And to top it all off, Scioli's Kirby-esque Statue of Liberty deftly references two retro relics: Planet of the Apes and the Iron Eyes Cody "Keep America Beautiful" commercial.
