Take a moment to enjoy some R.E.B.E.L.S. covers

There's no arguing that artist Kalman Andrasofzsky is one talented guy. So why not take a look at some of his more recent work? Specifically, his covers on R.E.B.E.L.S.? We swung by Editor Brian Cunningham's office to get the lowdown. Take it away, Brian:
"I love how people stop in my office and marvel at how effective Kalman’s covers are. And they are just so different from your traditional comic book covers. I saw some of his Star Wars work at New York Comic-Con in February, and I felt the book needed a cool sci-fi sensibility like his. It really compliments the interior art of Andy Clarke, Claude St. Aubin and Scott Hanna.
REBELS #5 really balances the innocence and the creepiness so effectively. It almost looks like a Vertigo cover with a sci-fi sensibility. This one, more than any other Kalman has done, has provoked a strong reaction with most people who have seen it prior to publication. It’s on sale now, so check it out in print!
All I told him for REBELS #6’s cover was to channel his inner Frazetta. And he hit it outta the park.
REBELS #7 was a tough nut to crack. We wanted to get that Starro starfish shadow subtly in there, but still have the drowning Vril Dox visible. It’s the type of cover where you need to look at it twice to see the subtle star shadow.
For REBELS #8, Kalman really wanted to tackle the “all-new, all-dangerous” Omega Men. Without revealing too much, Tigorr and crew are seriously amped up, and ready to kick some Starro horde butt—and Kalman ramped it up to 11.
And REBELS #9...? Well, we gotta save something for later, right?"
