Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week 06/25/14

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

Adventures of Superman #14

Written by Max Landis

Art by Jock, Various

“Check out that grin! C’mon, you’ve got to admit that this cover image is pretty cool.” – Steve Seigh

Aquaman #32

Written by Jeff Parker

Art by Paul Pelletier, Sean Parsons

Bombshell Variant Cover by Ant Lucia

“I am absolutely loving some of these gorgeous Bombshell covers. DC has gotten some flack for their “themed months” in the past but I would say that this once is a home run. Yes, there’s the exception or two, but this covers got style as well as class. I dig it.” – Steve Seigh

Flash #32

Written by Robert Venditti – Van Jensen

Art by Brett Booth, Norm Rapmund

Bombshell Variant Cover by Ant Lucia

Flash #32 Bombshell Variant Cover: Drive-in diner menu (with roller skates)

“Once again, just stunning.” – Steve Seigh

Justice League Dark #32

Written by J. M. DeMatteis

Art by Andres Guinaldo, Mark Irwin

Bombshell Variant Cover by Ant Lucia

“And one more for the road. Wow! I would absolutely love a print of this one. I wonder if the artist will appear at this year’s NYCC 2014. That would be sweet.” – Steve Seigh

Saga #20

Written by Brian K. Vaughan

Art and Cover by Fiona Staples

“D’awwwwww! Oh, and eep! Why the solo mission, Dad?” – Steve Seigh

Bob Reyer’s Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week

Ghost #5

Writer: Christopher Sebela

Artist: Jan Duursema

Cover: Jenny Frison

Wow, Chris Sebela’s first issue as solo scribe on Ghost is off to a fabulous start from the art standpoint, with two talented ladies on board: Jan Duursema on pencils and Jenny frison providing this amazing cover! I wish that i had known about this while Steve was interviewing Ms, Frison, because I certainly would have asked a question or two!” – Bob Reyer

Ms. Marvel #5

Writer: G. Willow Wilson

Artist: Adrian Alphona

Cover: Jamie McKelvie; Matt Wilson

“I love this wistful cover by Jamie McKelvie and Matt Wilson! There’s genuine emotion at play here, even if Kamala’s face can’t be seen! That slight hunch to the shoulders might suggest a longing for a return to normality, or perhaps a  “Can I really do this?” feeling for our young heroine as she gazes across the Hudson at midtown Manhattan!” – Bob Reyer

New Avengers Annual #1

Writer: Frank J. Barbiere

Artist/Cover: Marco Rudy

New Avengers Annual Vol 3 1 Textless

On the last podcast, Steve and I were wondering when or if we would get back in earnest to the Dr. Strange story-line, and it seems to be right here, with a story by “Five Ghosts” writer Frank j. Barbiere and if this cover by Marco Rudy is any indication of what the interiors look like, it’s gonna get very spooky!!” – Bob Reyer
