My Top Ten David Aja Variant Covers

2748986-aja_1

David Aja is a Spanish artist, born in April 1977. He graduated with a degree in Fine Arts from the University of Salamanca and began working as professional artist in Barcelona later that year. Quite part from his work in comics, his art has appeared in places as diverse as Men’s Health, Rolling Stone, CD covers and the French daily newspaper El Pais.

His distinctive cover art style has graced a number of comic covers in recent years and is perhaps the thing he is most known for. He has worked almost exclusively for Marvel Comics and personally speaking, his work never fails to delight.

Presented here are ten of his best covers so far. I could have picked a couple of dozen others to go in this top ten, the guy can do more with two colours than most artists can with all of them!
