Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week 09/17/14

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!

Bob Reyer’s Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week

DAREDEVIL #8 (Marvel)

Writer: Mark Waid

Artist: Javier Rodriguez

Cover: Chris Samnee

“This cover by Chris Samnee depicts the ‘Purple Children’ (at least according to the solicits!), but it reminds me of the very spooky 1960 British science-fiction film “Village of the Damned”…so consider yourself warned!” – Bob Reyer


Writer/Artist/Cover: Shane-Michael Vidaurri

“This image is a winning combination of whimsy and terror, done up in a charmingly old-fashioned picture-book style.” – Bob Reyer


Writer: Andre Sirangelo

Artist/Cover: Gabriel Iumazark

“I’ve chose a raft of spooky covers this week; perhaps it’s indicative of my mood? No matter, this stark imagery of a seemingly abandoned amusement park is a stunner!” – Bob Reyer


Writer: Cullen Bunn

Artist/Cover: Dave Wachter

“Series artist Dave Wachter fully delivers the awesome menace of Biolante on this cover! Does the ‘Big G’ stand a chance against a foe possessing some of his own DNA?” – Bob Reyer
