Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week 08/06/14

Hello, and 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

Rocket Raccoon #2

Written by Skottie Young

Art and Cover by Skottie Young

“Ha ha ha! Nice! I am still buzzing after having seen the Guardians of the Galaxy film twice this past weekend, and this cover is really speaking to me, right now. Not only do I love the cosmic color palette but I’m also finding it hard to deny that look of glee on Rocket’s face. This cover just screams “Hey! Let’s have a good time!” – Steve Seigh

Disney Kingdoms Figment #3

Written by Jim Zub

Art and Cover by Filipe Andrade

“I said it on the podcast and I’ll say it again, I love this cover. Not only am I a big music nut, but the design and playful nature of this cover really helps it to stand out against the rest that were offered this week. Good stuff!” – Steve Seigh

Alex + Ada #8

Written by Jonathan Luna, Sarah Vaughn

Art and Cover by Jonathan Luna

“No, no, no, no, NO! I don’t want Alex and Ada to go all to pieces! I’m not ready for this story to take an undoubtedly serious turn just yet. Can’t we let them be happy just a bit longer?” – Steve Seigh

The Superior Foes of Spider-Man #14

Written by Nick Spencer

Art by Steve Lieber, Rich Ellis

Cover by Kris Anka

“I’m a big fan of what I like to call “Halloween colors” and the gray on orange displayed on this cover is making me crave candy!” – Steve Seigh

Superior Spider-Man #32

Written by Dan Slott, Christos N. Gage

Art by Giuseppe Carmuncoli, Adam Kubert

Cover by Giuseppe Carmuncoli

“This cover might be a bit busy, but it sure has me excited! I’m severely stoked to read this book and that positioning on the Superior Spider-Man leaping into action is really hitting the spot!” – Steve Seigh

Bob Reyer’s Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week


Writer: Kevin Smith; Ralph Garman

Artist: Ty Templeton

Cover: Alex Ross

“Looking for all the world like a movie one-sheet sans credits, this Alex Ross cover certainly captures the body language and mannerisms of the leads. (I think Robin is in BIG trouble, by the way!)” – Bob Reyer


Writer: Scott Snyder, various

Artist: Andy Clarke

Cover: Alex Garner

“YIKES!!! The Caped Crusader looks to be in a spot of bother here, if Alex Garner’s creepy cover is any indication! Mr. Garner’s work on Batgirl over the last year-or-so has been stupendous, so with the changes on that book, I hope that DC finds another home for his fabulous paintings!” – Bob Reyer


Writer: Nathan Edmondson

Artist/Cover: Phil Noto

I think that it’s safe to say that this issue of Black Widow just might feature a cross-over with The Punisher? Another great cover by Phil Noto, whose art is worth the price of admission on its own, not to slight the fine work by Nathan Edmondson, our recent guest!” – Bob Reyer


Writer: Charles Soule

Artist: Javier Pulido

Cover: Kevin Wada

“Okay Henry Pym, what trouble have you gotten Jen and Patsy into, and how are you going to fix it? Kevin Wada’s styllish covers for this series have me pining for him to do some interiors ASAP!” – Bob Reyer


Writer/Artist/Cover: Drew Friedman

“Drew Friedman’s “stippled” portrait artwork has long been a favorite of mine, and having him train his pencil on classic comics creators is a natural, With the patented “Kirby Krackle” in the background, this cover image of “the King” in deep thought as he cooks up some cosmic adventure is the perfect way to lead you into a purchase!” – Bob Reyer

Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week Soundtrack

This week’s track is the song  “I’m Not In Love” by the band 10cc. This atmospheric and soothing jam was featured most recently on the Guardians of the Galaxy soundtrack.

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