Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week 03/05/14

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

Night of the Living Deadpool #4

Written by Cullen Bunn

Art by Ramon Rosanas

Cover by Jay Shaw

“You can’t see me right now, but I’m pouring a shot of really nice bourbon onto an unmarked grave for the end of Night of the Living Deadpool. The series certainly hasn’t been my favorite of the recent Deadpool minis – that crown goes to Deadpool Kills Deadpool – but I will miss these amazing covers courtesy of Jay Shaw. They’ve all been wonderful and this #4 cover is a lovely way to cap the series. I hope to see more from him in the future.” -Steve Seigh

Velvet #4

Written by Ed Brubaker

Art and Cover by Steve Epting

“You may or may not know this, but both Ms. Stephanie Cooke as well as myself are BIG fans of elaborate masks. Velvet is looking sharp, and quite dangerous on this cover, and I’m totally digging on the gold that sets off her look on this cover. Stylish and sexy times!” – Steve Seigh

She-Hulk #2

Written by Charles Soule

Art by Javier Pulido

Cover by Kevin Wada

“A woman’s work is never done. Insatiable lady lawyer by day, ass kicking Avenger by night … okay, sometimes during the day as well, but are we really going to split hairs here? I certainly hope not. Because I’ll tell you, I’ve got Jennifer on speed dial and she isn’t’ afraid to make house calls. Yeah, that’s right.” – Steve Seigh

Veil #1

Written by Greg Rucka

Art and Cover by Toni Fejzula

“The colors, Duke! The colors! I don’t know about you, but I don’t mind rats. Thanks to Gail Simone’s The Movement, and her character Mouse, I’ve come to be quite fond of the little disease vermin.  So of course I’m going to choose a cover that not only sports an army of the little critters, but that also colors them so gorgeously. It’s good stuff I tells ya!” – Steve Seigh

Moon Knight #1

Written by Warren Ellis

Art by Declan Shalvey

Cover by Declan Shalvey and Jordie Bellaire

“Often times I find that there is a high degree of beauty in comic book covers that embrace the idea of simplicity, and it’s in line with that attitude that I present to you this cover as one of my favorites of the week. I really dig the menacing vibe coming from Moon Knight’s vacant eyes and feel that the covers lack of color only helps to present as a bold and intense display of artistry.” – Steve Seigh

Bob Reyer’s Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week

The Movement #10

Written by Gail Simone

Art by Freddie Williams II

Cover by Stephane Roux

“I always love seeing Freddie Williams II cover art, but this dynamic image by Stephane Roux (whose work I adored on the lamentably-gone “Old 52” Zatanna) is a fine substitute!” – Bob Reyer

Revival #18

Written by Tim Seeley

Art and Cover by Mike Norton

“This cover by Mike Norton will be giving me nightmares for weeks, particularly as the last time I caught a glance of my own visage reflected in the mirror looking mighty similar after coming in from shovelling snow!” – Bob Reyer

She-Hulk #2

Written by Charles Soule

Art by Javier Pulido

Cover by Amanda Conner


“I couldn’t decide which of these great covers to choose, so using my seniority, I picked both! I love the story-telling aspects of Kevin Wada’s, but there was no way that I couldn’t have the variant cover as part of this week’s column, because…AMANDA CONNER!!!” – Bob Reyer

Simon & Kirdy Library: Horror

Written by Joe Simon/Jack Kirby

Art by Joe Simon/ Jack Kirby

Cover by Jack Kirby

Titan Books continues to bring us some of the finest reprint volumes, and this one collects the ultra-rare Simon & Kirby horror comics from the early Fifties that (according to Dr.Fredic Wertham and the House Committee on Juvenile Delinquency at least!) were helping to rot the souls of America’s youth! DO YOU DARE READ IT TO FIND OUT?– Bob Reyer

Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week Soundtrack

This list was compiled while listening to the album W H O K I L L by the musical artist tUnE-yArDs
