Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week 07/09/14

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

Batgirl #33

Writer: Gail Simone

Artist: Fernando Pasarin

Cover: Alex Garner

“Another month, another amazing Batgirl cover! Alex Garner continues to astound with these powerful images that drive you to want to read the story, and then on closing the book, makes you want to re-read it just by seeing the cover again!” – Bob Reyer

Detective Comics #33

Writer: Brian Buccellato; Francis Manapul

Artist: Francis Manapul

Variant “Batman 75th” Cover: Jim Steranko

“Sticking with Bat Family covers, there’s this stunner from comics legend Jim Steranko! The “deep focus photography” nature of the Gotham city-scape really sets a moody back-drop for a Batman who means business on this night, as he’s even brought some winged friends along with a cloud of bats!” – Bob Reyer

Winter Soldier: The Bitter March

Writer: Rick Remender

Artist: Ronald Boschi

Cover: Andrew Robinson

“This entertaining thriller comes to an end with this issue, and I’m going to miss these covers by Andrew Robinson that so embody the Sixties-era James Bond and Derek Flint movie posters!” – Bob Reyer

Captain Marvel #7

Writer: Kelly Sue DeConnick

Artist/Cover: David Lopez

“It looks as if Carol has had enough of diplomacy, if this cover by series artist David Lopez is any indicator! I’m sure they’ll be a strongly-worded letter about this sent to the Embassy, and then published in The Times!” – Bob Reyer

…and then there’s this…

“So, the “artistic” reason for this very-unflattering “worm’s eye view” camera angle is…? The art itself is quite good, and if you could rotate this image about 45 degrees to the right, or even better, “take the shot” of the Canary from the waist up, this might have made it to the “Covers of the Week”, but alas, such is not to be.” – Bob Reyer
