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

Harley Quinn #9

Written by Jimmy Palmiotti and Amanda Conner

Art by Chad Hardin

Cover by Amanda Conner

“Oh Harley, you’re always getting into trouble. I’ll admit though, I’m a sucker for that knowing wink. Go on with your bad self, girl” – Steve Seigh

Justice League United #4

Written by Jeff Lemire

Art by Mike McKone

Cover by Emanuel Lapacchino

“I make no apologies for thinking that this cover is absolutely adorable. Sometimes girls just wanna have fun, ya know?” – Steve Seigh

Ghosted #2

Written by Joshua Williamson

Art by Miroslav Mrva, Davide Gianfelice

Cover by Dan Panosian

“I’m liking the angle of that dangle.” – Steve Seigh * Give yourself some bonus points if you caught the ‘Losers’ reference I just made.

 Shutter #5

Written by Joe Keatinge

Art by Leila Del Duca

Cover by Leila Del Duca & Owen Gieni

“I’m all about that soft blue color used for this cover. I feel as if it’s sending me a subliminal messages of calm and tranquility when I look at it. It was one of the few covers this week that really made me stop in my tracks so that I can take it all in.” – Steve Seigh

The Amazing Spider-Man #5

Written by Dan Slott

Art by Humberto Ramos

Cover by Humberto Ramos & Edgar Delgado

“Over the years I’ve come to find that I’m a big Humberto Ramos fan. I can’t quite put my finger on the specifics, but something about his style calls out to me and begs me to take notice. For example, not only are those arcs of blue lightning pretty spectacular, but the puss that Black Cat has on her face is cracks me up every time I look at it. She just looks so disgusted. Ha ha ha! I dig it.” – Steve Seigh

Bob Reyer’s Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week


Writer: Gail Simone

Artist: Fernando Pasarin

Cover: Alex Garner

“This Alex Garner cover provides a perfect send-off as this is Gail Simone’s final issue on Batgirl. I’m much looking forward to the new approach, but I’m still quite sad at losing Ms. Simone’s “voice” on Barbara after all these years!” – Bob Reyer


Writer: Jeff Lemire

Artist: Mike McKone

Variant Cover: Karl Kerschl

“As Our Ms. Cooke doesn’t usually contribute to this column, I’ll make this selection in her stead! Karl Kerschl, he of The Abominable Charles Christopher (one of Stephanie’s favorites), uses another of her passions to create the setting for this variant cover for the finale of the JLU’s Canadian adventure!” – Bob Reyer


Writer: Gail Simone

Artist: Walter Geovani

Variant Cover: Stephanie Buscema

What else to say about this charming cover by Ms. Buscema than “A-w–w-w-w…”?” – Bob Reyer


Writer: Cullen Bunn

Artist: Dave Wachter

Variant Cover: Bob Eggleton

“Bob Eggleton is one of the foremost “monster artists” around, and this imagfe of the “Big G” just exudes power and majesty! I’m fortunate to have a signed, (very) limited edition print of the Great Cthulhu hanging in my sight as I type this!” – Bob Reyer


Writer: Chris Claremont

Artist: Todd Nauck

Cover: Jamie McKelvie

Nightcrawler Vol 4 5 Textless

“Perhaps Kurt Wagner was better off fighting robots and sorceresses than teaching at the Jean Grey School?” – Bob Reyer

Writer: Gayle Middleton; Dave Dwonch
Artist/Cover: Amanda Coronado; Bill Blankenship

“I guess I’m on a “cute dragon” kick this week, but the cover on this new collection of Vamplets has me adding this series to the list of things to buy as Christmas gifts!” – Bob Reyer
