Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week 10/08/14

Hey, thanks for checking out Talking Comics: Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week!

Each and every New Comic Book Release Day is a blessing. 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

Abe Sapien #17

Written by Mike Mignola and Scott Allie

Art and Cover by Sebastian Fiumara

“Let the spooky covers of October continue! Wow! How beautiful is this cover? I love the way in which the skeleton is holding Abe to it’s chest, as if in some form of a loving embrace, telling him in it’s own way that everything will be alright.” – Steve Seigh

Batman #35

Written by Scott Snyder

Art and Cover by Greg Capullo

“I, like many, am not thrilled at the prospect of DC no charging $4.99 for the Batman comic, but there’s no denying that this is one sweet cover. That aside, what the hell are they thinking? Is this the first in a new trend of DC raising the price of their flagship titles? What book is next? Justice League? The Flash? I certainly hope not.” – Steve Seigh

Wytches #1

Written by Scott Snyder

Art and Cover by Jock

“Does it really get any creepier than this? Seriously, I’m not even going to comment any further because I am now in need of a dry pair of pants.” – Steve Seigh

All-New Ultimates #9

Written by Michel Fiffe

Art by Giannis Milonogiannis

Cover by David Nakayama

“I really wish that I could have found a cleaner version of this cover for you, one without all that red Marvel logo crap on it. Still, I think this cover is absolutely stunning.” – Steve Seigh

Captain Marvel #8

Written by Kelly Sue Deconnick

Art by Marcio Takara

Cover by David Lopez

“Are you kidding me? A mountain of cats, a bristling Rocket, what more do you need?! WOW, YES!” – Steve Seigh

“Well, I think at one time or another we’ve all had nightmares about something under our beds, and this cover deftly ties into that primal fear!” – Bob Reyer


Writer: Dan Slott

Artist: Giuseppi Camuncoli

Variant Cover: Javier Pulido

“It looks as if the new Ms. Marvel has made her mark on the comics world, as getting to guest-star in Amazing Spider-Man is a pretty big step! As I love Javier Pulido’s work on She-Hulk, this cover was an easy choice!” – Bob Reyer


Writer/Artist/Cover: Fred Perry

“It looks as if Popeye has undergone a similar transmogrification to Thor, doesn’t it? Here’s the solicitation, and please sing along:

She’s Momeye the Sailor Scout! She’s Momeye the Sailor Scout! She gets her bravado from fresh avocados, she’s Momeye the Sailor Scout!” – Bob Reyer


Writer: Bruce Brown

Artist/Cover: Thomas Boatright; Renzo Podesta

“A–w-w-w-w! Young HPL and his pet Old One, Li’l Cthulhu make such  acute pair, don’t you think?” – Bob Reyer
