Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week 07/24/13/

Hello and welcome to the revised edition of Talking Comics: Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week! It used to be that every week our Executive Editor Steve Seigh would showcase his favorite comic book covers of the week and then you could all go about your day. Well no more! From this point forward Steve won’t be the only one displaying the covers that caught his fancy. As of today, and for the foreseeable future, you’ll be viewing selections not only from Steve, but from other site staff and fans alike!

If you’d like to contribute to this column all you need to do is send Steve an email at, telling him the title of the issue with the cover that you dig, as well as a brief description of why you’re grooving on that particular cover. We’ll try to include as many selections as possible and hope that you enjoy seeing your choices displayed for all of the internet to see.

So without further or due let’s get this week’s selections highlighted!

– Steve Seigh’s Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week –

Mind MGMT #13

Writer: Matt Kindt
Artist: Matt Kindt 

I get a kick out of comic book covers that model themselves after real-life magazine covers. This one reminds of a Home & Gardens cover or perhaps something more like a old Cosmopolitan setup. Either way I find it very clever and entertaining.– Steve Seigh

Hawkeye Annual #1

Story by Matt Fraction
Art by Javier Pulido
Cover by Javier Pulido

I love this cover for no other reason than that I get a heavy Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask vibe from it. Also, Kate’s checkered, retro dress is mighty snazzy.– Steve Seigh 

One of the most interesting things in comics over the last year is that no matter who is doing the art chores on Hawkeye, they have been brilliantly individualistic, yet never out of character with David Aja’s tone-setting work!– Bob Reyer

Batman/Superman #2

Written by Greg Pak
Art by Jae Lee
Cover by Jae Lee

I’m loving the bold and beautiful colors featured on this cover. It’s a little violent perhaps, but I’m totally willing to look beyond that for the sake of how eye-popping it all is.– Steve Seigh

Young Avengers #8

Story by Kieron Gillen
Art by Jamie McKelvie & Mike Norton
Colors by Matthew Wilson
Cover by Jamie McKelvie & Matthew Wilson

These colors don’t run … they kick your ass and then tweet about it from their Stark phones.– Steve Seigh

Wolverine and the X-Men #33

Story by Jason Aaron
Art by Nick Bradshaw
Cover by Nick Bradshaw

I really like the complex nature of the creature featured on this cover. It’s gaping maw of broken teeth and flowery skin are actually quite pretty. This cover screams DANGER DANGER DANGER and I am totally down for some of that!– Steve Seigh

– Bob Reyer’s Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week – 

Steed & Mrs. Peel #10

Cover by Joe Corroney

On his amazing covers for Steed & Mrs. Peel, Joe Corroney has been capturing the delightful spirit that marked The Avengers as something special back in the Sixties! In this case, he’s using as reference a rare color promo image from the shooting of the B&W “chessboard” opening that introduced American television audiences to “top professional” John Steed and his new partner, the “talented amateur” Emma Peel. I own a copy of a still from this shoot, and it is mounted in a frame along with the signatures of Diana Rigg (Happy 75th birthday on 20 July!) and Patrick Macnee!– Bob Reyer

Hunger #1

Story by Joshua Fialkov
Art by Leonard Kirk
Cover by Adi Granov

I have little interest in buying this series, but what a great cover by Adi Granov!– Bob Reyer
