Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week 09/03/14
Hey, thanks for checking out Talking Comics: Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week!
We here at Talking Comics just love New Comic Book Release Day! It’s the day in which each of us are introduced to new worlds, bear witness to the next chapter in a continuing saga, or could fall in love with a new character or creator. I could wax romantic about comics until the Skrull cows come home, but I do believe I’ve made my point. That being … comics are awesome! In fact, they’re so awesome that sometimes even the covers of them are incredible works of art. Thus, we’ve invited you to this weekly column so that we might share with you some of our favorite comic book covers each week! So go ahead, take a few moments for yourself (haven’t you earned it?), and feast your eyes on some truly inspired comic book cover art!
So without further or due let’s get this week’s selections highlighted!
