Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week 09/24/14

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!

Steve Seigh’s Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week

ALIENS: FIRE AND STONE #1

Writer: Chris Roberson

Artist: Patric Reynolds

Cover: Fiona Staples

 

“It’s no secret that I’m a HUGE fan of both the ALIEN franchise as well as Ms. Fiona Staples. So, as one would suspect, this cover is hitting the high watermark for me on all fronts. I could stare at it all day long!” – Steve Seigh

“Well, it seems as if Ms. Fiona Staples has wandered into some very dark places in outer space with this chilling image!” – Bob Reyer

Red Sonja #12

Written by Gail Simone

Art by Walter Geovani

Cover by Jenny Frisson

“Would you look at those eyes?! Jenny has really captured the ferocity of Red Sonja once again with this stunning cover!” – Steve Seigh

Low #3

Written by Rick Remender

Art and Cover by Greg Tocchini

“I might not be reading Remender’s Low, but there’s no denying this cover art. I’m a huge fan of undersea adventures and simply love the way Tochinni has captured what it feels like to be deep beneath the depths with this cover.” – Steve Seigh

Roche Limit #1

Written by Michael Moreci

Art and Cover by Vic Malhotra

“This must be the week of fantastic Sc-Fi inspired covers because here we are again with this beauty from Vic Malhorta! I like it’s simplicity and bold colors. Sometimes you don’t need a bunch of creatures and mayhem going on for a cover to be spectacular.” – Steve Seigh

Secret Avengers #8

Written by Ales Kot

Art by Michael Walsh

Cover by Tradd Moore and Matthew Wilson

“Do I even need to explain this one? We all know how awesome M.O.D.O.C.K. is.” – Steve Seigh

Bob Reyer’s Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week

HARLEY QUINN: FUTURE’S END #1

Writer: Amanda Conner; Jimmy Palmiotti

Artist: Chad Hardin

Standard Cover: Amanda Conner

“Uh-oh! Looks like trouble in paradise for Harley and Mr. J…and on their honeymoon, no less!” – Bob Reyer

STAR TREK: HARLAN ELLISON’S “CITY ON THE EDGE OF FOREVER” #4 (IDW)

Writer: Harlan Ellison; Scott & David Tipton

Artist: J.K. Woodward

Cover: Juan Ortiz

“These wonderfully-retro “sci-fi paperback” covers by Juan Ortiz have been in my picks each time, as they evoke the era that the show originally aired, but also illuminate the emotional story within–superb!!” – Bob Reyer

AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #1.5

Writer: Dan Slott

Artist: Humberto Ramos

Cover; Alex Ross

“Not much to say except “Wow!”” – Bob Reyer

STORM #3

Writer: Greg Pak

Artist: Victor Ibanez

Variant Cover: David Yardin

“As a cover meant to remark on what goes on within, this isn’t much, but what a fabulous image by Stephanie Hans that beautifully captures the essence of Ororo!” – Bob Reyer

CLEOPATRA IN SPACE VOL. 1 HC

Writer/Artist/Cover: Mike Maihack

“Here’s what should be a fun book: the actual 15-year-old Cleopatra is transported to the far future where she goes to school to learn how to be the Queen of the Universe…later for that “Queen of the Nile” jazz!” – Bob Reyer

BARBARELLA

Writer/Artist: Jean-Claude Forest

English Adaptation: Kelly Sue DeConnick

“A new adaptation of the classic French science-fiction strip, and by Kelly Sue DeConnick–I’m in, except that for now, this is only available as a super-deluxe, super-over-sized, super-pricey edition. I’ll wait for the regular, but I’m tempted…” – Bob Reyer
