Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week 09/25/13/

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 –

Saga #14

Written by Brian K. Vaughan

Art and Cover by Fiona Staples

This cover punches me right in the feels. There is something truly majestic and pure about it, and that is a rare find inside the pages of Saga. Ms. Staples has outdone herself with this one. I might need to look for a print of this at NYCC this year.– Steve Seigh

If this one doesn’t tug at your heart strings, I don’t know what will.  I love the relationship that that has been developing between Gwendolyn and Sophie/Slave Girl, and am pumped they’ll be exploring it more in this issue. – Patrick Brennan

Sex Criminals #1

Written by Matt Fraction

Art by Chip Zdarsky

This cover is hot. I dig the overwhelming presence of hot pink on black and white, and the book strategically covering the woman’s naughty bits makes me chuckle. So immature, I know.– Steve Seigh

Rat Queens #1

Written by Kurtis J. Wiebe

Art by Roc Upchurch

It’s all about the art style for me in regard to this cover. I haven’t had the chance to read it just yet but you can be sure that it’s at the top of my list.– Steve Seigh

Revival #14

Story by Tim Seeley

Art by Mike Norton

Cover by Jenny Frison

I will eat your soulllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll!!!!!– Steve Seigh

Avengers Assemble #19

Written by Kelly Sue Deconnick & Jen Van Meter

Art by Barry Kitson

Cover by Jorge Molina

Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous! Yeah, Widow and Spider-Woman are looking mighty fine on this painterly cover. I love the “dead serious” looks on our heroes faces and I can’t wait to see how the events of this issue shake out.– Steve Seigh

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

FF #12

Written by Matt Fraction and Lee Allred

Art by Michael Allred

Cover by Michael Allred

Things” are looking “rocky” around the old Baxter Building! (Sorry!) It may not be the classic Hulk vs. Thing battle from the original Fantastic Four #12, but if the cover by Michael Allred is any indication, this issue should be a lot of fun! Next issue: the Red Ghost and his super-apes?” – Bob Reyer

Empowered Special: Nine Beers With Ninjette

Written by Adam Warren

Art and cover by Takeshi Miyazawa and Adam Warren

As with the last special, Adam Warren is sharing art duties, this time with manga creator Takeshi Miyazawa, who is agreat fit with the manga stylings of Mr. Warren.Mr. Miyazawa’s foreground figures absolutely pop against the Warren backgrounds! (Can you find the nine beers on the cover?)– Bob Reyer

– Patrick Brennan’s Favorite Comic Book Cover of the Week –

Gambit #17

Written by James Asmus

Art by Clay Mann

I haven’t been reading this series, but this cover really grabbed me.  The detail in what we see of the fortune teller is awesome, with the creepy nails being a highlight, and Gambit looks especially badass.” – Patrick Brennan

– Michael Duke’s Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week – 

Captain Midnight #3

Written by Joshua Williamson

Art by Fernando Dragino

Cover by Felipe Massafera

If you told me that anyone could pull off looking this good in a red flying squirrel suit, fighting a bear with a flare on the frozen side of a mountain somewhere (rhyming is all in the timing :-)), i would never have believed you. And yet, it’s glorious. This needs to be on a heavy metal album cover, stat!– Michael Duke

Ultimate Comics Spider-Man #27

Written by Brian Michael Bendis

Art and cover by Dave Marquez

It looks so good, I want it to be real. One part drama to ten parts metaphor, this one looks good enough to go on the wall.– Michael Duke

– Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week Soundtrack –
