Batman SNOW 192 cover

This is probably the single most reproduced image that Seth did. No wonder, because it is really beautiful, an adjective that is not often used in relation to superhero comic book art. It is symmetrical enough to have a still and quiet feel, but not enough to be boring. It has movement, but the movement is slow, like snowflakes falling through the air.
Seth knew that a cover does not have to tell the story that is inside, it can be a metaphor for what the story is about, or can just be an elegant image that draws the potential reader's eye to pick up this book.
