Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week 06/04/14

Hey, thanks for checking out Talking Comics: Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week!

Each and every New Comic Book Release Day is something to be excited about. 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!


Steve Seigh’s Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week

Ultimate Comics Spider-Man #2

Written by Brian Michael Bendis

Art by David Marquez

Variant Cover by Amy Reeder

“I’ve been waiting to catch this cover in all of it’s full colored glory and WOW, it did not disappoint! I love the motion of it, the bending of the buildings, the sense of vertigo it exudes. It’s all good! Boy what I wouldn’t give for a Spider-Man mini drawn by Ms. Amy Reeder!” – Steve Seigh

The Superior Foes of Spider-Man #12

Written by Nick Spencer

Art by Steve Leiber

Cover by Ron Wimberly

“Would you look at this cover! I can totally hear a wah-wah pedal rocking back and forth inside of my head each time I look at it. Groovy, baby.” – Steve Seigh

The Superannuated Man #1

Words, Art, & Cover by Ted McKeever

“We f*ck you up, Lebowski! We takes the money!” – Steve Seigh

Vampirella #1

Iron Man #27

Bob Reyer’s Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week 

Ghost #4

Written by Kelly Sue Deconnick

Art by Geraldo Borges, Andy Owens

Cover by Ariel Olivetti

“Look Dick, a ghost!” says Jane.

“She seems scary, Jane.” says Dick.

Worry, Dick, worry.

“Let’s get the hell outta here!” says Jane.

See Jane run.

Run, Jane, run!

See Dick faint.

Elisa thinks Dick is a demon.

Poor, poor, Dick.”

– Bob Reyer

Batman ’66 Meets The Green Hornet #1

Written by Kevin Smith, Ralph Garman

Art by Ty Templeton

Cover by Alex Ross

Variant Cover by Michael and Laura Allred

“It was impossible to choose between these two marvelous covers from two of my favorite cover artists, so you fine folks in “radio-land” get to see both! Seeing these, I’m now going on “trade-wait” and hoping for the usual Dynamite “DVD extras” cover gallery!” – Bob Reyer

Big Trouble In Little China #1

Written by Eric Powell

Art by Brian Churilla

Variant Cover by Terry Dodson

“Just remember what ‘ol Jack Burton does when the earth quakes, and the poison arrows fall from the sky, and the pillars of Heaven shake. Yeah, Jack Burton just looks that big ol’ storm right square in the eye and he says, ‘Give me your best shot, pal. I can take it'”

“Who’s Jack Burton?”
That’s not a question any of us who are fans of John Carpenter’s “Big Trouble in Little China” have to ask! That film’s mash-up of action, comedy, romance, and mystical martial arts may have bombed at the box-office, but over the years it has become a cult classic! Terry Dodson has perfectly captured the bemused look of “Jack Burton” with this image!” – Bob Reyer

John Carpenter’s Asylum

Written by Bruce King

Art by Leonardo Manco

Cover by Tim Bradstreet

“Speaking of John Carpenter, this series coming out under his banner sports an image by long-time (and award-winning) Punisher cover artist Tim Bradstreet that is truly the stuff of nightmares!” – Bob Reyer
