Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week 07/02/14

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!

Bob Reyer’s Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week

Angel and Faith Season 10 #4

Written by Victor Gischel

Art by Will Conrad

Variant Cover by Chris Samnee and Jordie Bellaire

“Wouldn’t this make a great poster! The dream team of Chris Samnee and Jordie Bellaire are hitting on all cylinders here with this striking cover; nice juxtapositioning of the two characters, both in terms of line and Ms. Bellaire’s colors!” – Bob Reyer


Writer: Jeff Lemire

Artist/Cover: Andrea Sorrentino

According to the solicitation, this issue features a character named Richard Dragon, which is no doubt the inspiration for this rather-threatening representation of his name-sake by Andrea Sorrentino!” – Bob Reyer


Writer: Mark Buckingham

Artist: Russel Braun

Cover: Adam Hughes

I know that some of you might laugh when I say this, but in the midst of DC’s “Bombshell Event”, one of the most alluring covers of the month adorns this issue of Fairest! Despite the nearly complete lack of exposed flesh, the beguiling open-ness and fun-loving attitude shown via the expression on the young woman’s face by the masterful Adam Hughes is absolutely winning!” – Bob Reyer

TWILIGHT ZONE #6 (Dynamite)

Writer: J. Michael Straczynski

Artist: Guiu Vilanova

Cover: Francesco Francavilla

“Whoa, Nelly!  Doesn’t this by Francesco Francavilla speak to the isolation and loneliness that’s at the heart of so many Twilight Zone TV episodes? If Mr. Francavilla did the interiors on this title, I might be tempted…” – Bob Reyer


Writer: James Stokoe

Artist/Cover: Joanna Estep

The cover of this one-shot “event” issue seems to drop us right into the middle of some trouble for whomever might still be in the Fantastic Four in the year 2061, although the silhouettes are familiar! I’m mostly unfamiliar with Ms. Estep’s work, excepting the utterly charming story “Moonshine Holler” from the anthology “Thrilling Adventure Hour” that Mr. Steve Seigh graced me with at Christmas, but this image prompts me to think that Ms. Estep should try her hand at some super-heroes!” – Bob Reyer

Favorite Comic Books Covers of the Week Soundtrack

This week’s track is called “Pull Shapes” and it’s by the Britpop group The Pipettes. Yeah, I read a lot of Phonogram this week.

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