Focal points can make a cover.
Black Panther # 5 is the perfect example of what can be done when focal points are used correctly how to draw in the reader.
Yes, we know this is the second month in the row where we covered a Marvel cover. Never fear because we have some great DC covers coming up.
This issue was released in August 2016 and the cover work was done by Brian Stelfreeze
We absolutely what Brian did with this cover. The Black Panther is front and center. He makes use of shadow to help define the character and the posture simply works.
While there is a good deal going on behind the Black Panther, the lighter colors help to keep our attention on the foreground.
An added bonus is having Black Panther leaping toward the reader. The simple action makes us lock in on the character even more.
