Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week 12/11/13
Hey, thanks for checking out Talking Comics: Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week!
Each and every New Comic Book Release Day is a blessing. It’s the day we’re introduced to new worlds, are able to witness the next chapter in a continuing saga, or fall in love with a character or creator for the first time. I could go on and on, but I think you’ve already gotten my point. That point being … comics are awesome. So awesome in fact that even the covers of them are often times incredible works of art. We’re here to show you some of our favorite covers each week! So go ahead and take a few moments for yourself (haven’t you earned it?) and feast your eyes on some truly inspired comic book covers!
If you’d like to contribute to this column all you need to do is send Steve an email at SteveSeigh@TalkingComicBooks.com, 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
Written by Scott Snyder
Art by Greg Capullo
Cover by Capullo & Plascencia
“This cover stopped me in my tracks the other day when our good friend Rob threw it on my new comic book pile. I’ve seen the image before, but there was something about the glossy cover and pastel sunset that set my mind on fire. I would absolutely love a signed poster of this to hang inside my home. It’s creepy, majestic, and beautiful all at once. It’s more definitely my favorite cover of the week.” – Steve Seigh
Alex + Ada #2
Written by Sarah Vaughn & Jonathan Luna
Art and Cover by Jonathan Luna
“A little bit creepy, wholly inviting, and undeniably mysterious, this cover stands out among the rest of this week’s comics sue to the paralyzing stare in Ada’s eyes.” – Steve Seigh
Memory Collectors #2
A Book by Menton3
Cover by Menton3
“I’m pretty sure that I dated this chick in my first semester of college.” – Steve Seigh
Coffin Hill #3
Written by Caitlin Kitteredge
Art by Inaki Miranda
Cover by Dave Johnson
“For one reason or another, it’s all about the creepy this week. I love the coupling of violet, red, gray, white, and pink against a tortured forest backdrop. This woman looks like she’s up to no good, digging deep within the roots of our earth in order to give birth to evil. It’s quite a startling image.” – Steve Seigh
Uncanny X-Men #15.INH
Written by Brian Micheal Bendis
Art and Cover by Kris Anka
“I like this cover a lot based upon the idea that all the women depicted in it look like they’re having a hell of a lot of fun! Are they on a rollercoater? Are they at the movies? I have no idea, but I love the colors and mood of this cover! Yay!” – Steve Seigh
Bob Reyer’s Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week
Doc Savage #1
Written by Chris Roberson
Art by Bilquis Evely
Cover by Alex Ross
“Wow!!! Honestly, I didn’t plan to chat up James Bama’s Doc Savage paperback covers, and then Alex Ross in the weeks leading up to this new series, but perhaps I’ve set the stage for your perusal of this absolutely stunning cover by Mr. Ross! This is instantly a contender for my “Best Cover of 2013″!” – Bob Reyer
Written by Gail Simone
Art by Fernando Pasarin
Cover by Alex Garner
“Alex Garner’s covers for Batgirl continue to amaze! Beautifully posed, yet strikingly animate, and rife with raw emotion! I’d love to see a painted mini-series (Birds of Prey!!!) from Mr. Garner and Ms. Simone!” – Bob Reyer
Domino Lady: Sex As a Weapon
Written by Chuck Dixon and Nancy Holder
Art and Cover by Ver Austin
“With it’s rear seat a raging inferno, a powerful roadster’s headlamps reflect off streets glistening with a newly-fallen rain, picking up the image of a beautiful woman, her silenced revolver still smoking. Was she the cause of this conflagration, or its avenger? You’ll have to read “Domino Lady” to find out!
