When I first started getting back into comics, Marko Djurdjevic was an artist that quickly became one of my favorites. His covers are beautiful, and tend to really stand out on the rack. His style is very much his own, and you know right away when you're looking at one of his covers. This book is filled with covers of his, along with a lot of commentary on them by the artist himself. Most of the covers in here are from before I started collecting his stuff, so a lot of it was new for me.

While quite a lot of the art showcased here is lovely, there really isn't much of the behind-the-scenes information that I like in these types of books. I was also unprepared for how cynical Djurdjevic is. He is refreshingly honest at times, though, clearly stating when he was just phoning it in.


There are some undeniably great pieces in this book, but his attitude towards most of his work seems to be one of ennui. I also get a sense he doesn't take criticism well. Anyway, pretty pictures.

An amazing collection of artwork by Marko Djurdjevic that features his cover paintings for several Marvel titles. Throughout the book he gives his thoughts on graphic design and his thoughts on the pieces. Many of the paintings feature an interesting palette choice and include preliminary concept sketches. Highly recommended for fans of painted comic art.

Beautiful artwork from the best cover artist of my life time. Marko does uses contrast of colors to make his work stand out among other painters. what made this book a favorite of mine was that Marko took the time to explain his motives for doing what he does.
