Hiya! first of all I've been silently stalking comic bookbook for some time now so I'll try to get my fangirling out of the way now.

OH MI GOSH I LOVE YOUR STUFF SOOO MUCH, YOU"RE FREAKING EPIC!!!!!!!!

There now that that's over with on to some actual critquing. I love your art style and I'm no expert at things like anatomy or lighting or any other artsy BS so I'll talk about the stuff I do know.

I really like the postioning of all the characters. Even though you have a defined main character no one seems pushed aside or squeezed in at the last second. Everyone get's their own nice amount of spotlight. Also I love Matt in the background, I think for people that have already read the series it ironically calls more attention to where he is because we were looking for him.

As for someone who hasn't read comic bookbook I was was a tad worried that this cover was a bit too epic for the actual nature of CBB. You have a very serious and borderline badass expression. Not to mention that the red and black tones usually project a darker image all by themselves.

What saves it though from sending the wrong message though are things like the title "Comic bookbook THE BOOK" Hilarious XD I've always love the title and you managed to make it even funnier. Also coming back to Matt in the background, it capture the sillier side of CBB and the fact that you generally mix epicness and ridiculiousness all in one. So in the end I found it to be a really good balance.

Another thing though that made the cover more balance was the nice range of expressions. Even though there are two characters smiling it's not the same smile. Corey.... has a corey expression and you have a 'sh*ts about to go down' look

Moving on, I love the background, its well thought out and keeps us interested without being too busy, and the text is just really dynamic! I wonder did you make it yourself. If you did I applaud you because it's very orginal and visually pleasing and if it isn't I still applaud you because it's not one that I've seen before so it still get a lot of originality point.

Over all this cover really captured the spirit of what you've created which is what I think any cover should strive to achieve. I wish you all the luck in the world with Comic Bookbook and wherever it takes you.

Now if you'll excuse me I'll go back to my silenting stalking now (Unless you don't mind me fangirling every now and then)
What do you think?

Critiquing is not just finding fault with the artist's work.

I was trying to find something to critique, since you asked, but I've been staring at it for 10 minutes and have yet to find anything to critique.
