Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week 10/29/14

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


Written by Jim Zub

Art by Steve Cummings

Cover by Jorge Molina

“AAAGGGHHHHH!!! What is there not to love about this cover? Check out those bright, bold, and beautiful colors! Eh, am I right? That’s one serious hairball of mischief, right there! I count at least 6, maybe 7 different beasts hailing from Japanese folklore in that pile. How many can you spot?” – Steve Seigh


Written by Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti

Art by John Timms

Bombshell Variant by Ant Lucia

“Bombs away! I love the style and attitude on this cover. Harley looks as if she’s up to know good and she’s not afraid to show it. Classic.” – Steve Seigh

Elektra #7

Written by Haden Blackman

Art by Alex Sanchez

Cover by Mike Del Mundo

“Welp, here’s another ridiculously cool Elektra cover by Mike Del Mundo! Damn, this dude has some serious talent!” – Steve Seigh


Written by Antony Johnston

Art and Cover by Christopher Mitten

“When we were all at Tor Comics the other day, and this cover emerged from its Diamond shipping box, I took immediate notice. One of the things I’ve always appreciated about UMBRAL (artfully speaking) is that gorgeous shade of purple that’s used consistently throughout every issue. Here it is again being used to create this bold and beautiful cover. I’ve no idea who that dude on the cover is, but I wouldn’t want to mess with him. No, sir!” – Steve Seigh


Written by Charles Soule

Art and Cover by Ryan Stegman

“!!!, could it be? Is Black Bolt crossing over into a secret issue of Sex Criminals? It sure looks like it to me! …. not really, I’m just trying to make you laugh.” – Steve Seigh
