Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week 01/15/14

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

Inhumanity: The Superior Spider-Man #1

Written by Cristos Gage

Art & Cover by Stephanie Hans

“Included in my personal list for this year’s Breakthrough Artists of 2013, Stephanie Hans is back on the Marvel scene with this astonishingly beautiful cover. I love the soft, melon-like colors used here, as well as the depiction of heroism – both in regard to Superior Spidey as well as New York’s finest. I see this cover as a lovely nod to the teamwork between the heroes of our world. Well done, Stephanie.” – Steve Seigh

Disney Kingdoms: Seekers of the Weird #1

Written by Brandon Seifert

Art by Karl Moline

Cover by Mike Del Mundo

“This cover screams action, adventure, and danger, danger, danger! Additionally, I can’t be the only one who’s getting a hard Indiana Jones vibe from this cover. Del Mundo’s slick paints and clever blend of colors really shine here and has me stoked for what lay inside the pages of this brand new series.” – Steve Seigh

Fantastic Four #16

Written by Matt Fraction and Karl Kesel

Art by Raffaele Ienco

Cover by Mark Bagley

“The gang’s all here! As far as “final issue” covers go, this one takes the cake … and even manages to be that killer piece in the middle, the one with all the icing and scrumptious custard-filled innards.” – Steve Seigh 

“As Matt Fraction’s Fantastic Four comes to a conclusion, what better way to close it out than with this cover that celebrates the super-heroic interactions of the Richards clan! Mark Bagley, you’ll be missed–you, too Mr. Fraction–from the pages of “The World’s Greatest Comics Magazine”!” – Bob Reyer

Ghosted #6

Written by Joshua Williamson

Art by Davide Gianfelice

Cover by Matteo Scalera

“This guy’s future must be so bright, because … well, if you know the song than I don’t really need to go any further, do I?” – Steve Seigh

Coffin Hill #4

Written by Caitlin Kittredge

Art by Inaki Miranda

Cover by Dave Johnson

“I’m all about the orange on green on blue and red of this cover. I’m also enjoying the dotted newsprint aesthetic of it as well.” – Steve Seigh

Bob Reyer’s Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week

Batgirl #27

Written by Gail Simone

Art by Fernando Pasarin

Cover by Alex Garner

“Look–it’s a “Gothtopia” tie-in! I’m still not sure what that means, but that it gives Alex Garner a chance to draw an alternate costume for Batgirl, as well as letting Babs engage in a smile for a change, might just be worth having Gail Simone’s story interrupted yet again!” – Bob Reyer

Triple Helix #4

Words, Art, and Cover by John Byrne

“This cover by the legendary John Byrne for the last issue of the four-part mini-series is also the last part of a quadriptych running left to right–quite literally in this case, as Dart has run clear off of the Earth, and straight into “Kirby-space”! ” – Bob Reyer

Princeless: Encore Edition #2

Written by Jeremy Whitley

Art & Cover by Mia Goodwin

“Adrienne and Sparky (the dragon) out on an adventure is always an image worth celebrating! Mia Goodwin is someone whose I work I would love to see more of, but as she is also an Adjunct Professor at the Savannah college of Art and Sequential design, she only occasionally freelances at comics work, much to our loss.” – Bob Reyer

Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week Soundtrack

This list was compiled while listening to the brand new album Warpaint by the band Warpaint.

That’s all, folks! Join us next week for another round of covers and an avalanche of incredible cover art!
