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, 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

Batman #26

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

Batgirl #26

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!

(If that’s not the blurb for an old paperback, I’ll eat my snap-brim fedora!) ” – Bob Reyer

And Now For Bob’s Worst Cover of the Week!

World’s Finest #18

Written by Paul Levitz

Art by R.B. Silva and Joe B. Weems

Cover by (Sorry, schoolyard code; I’m not a tattletale!)

“Despite my love for Paul Levitz’s work on this fabulous title, the art has taken a real dip since the departure of Kevin Maguire. This cover may be the one that finally puts me off this book! Honestly, a close-up of Karen’s face, her heat vision run amok, would certainly have given readers an idea of what to expect inside, as opposed to this Victoria’s Secret pin-up with a screaming head attached. It’s not even the eye-leading “cleavage window” that irks me, but Power Girl’s costume does not seem to cover much of her tuchus, considering what she does for a living! (And what’s the deal with that thigh? Oy, gevalt!)” – Bob Reyer
