Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week 12/10/14

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

Each and every New Comic Book Release Day is something to be excited about. 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

Afterlife With Archie #7

Story by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa

Art by Francesco Francavilla

Variant Cover by Andrew Depoy


“There’s no dancing around it. Over the past year I’ve developed quite a crush on both of these characters. The main reason is that one of my instagram friends, foxyvixen13, is SUPER obsessed with these ladies. In fact,  she’s modeled much of her every day wardrobe after several wonderful female characters in comics, and I dig that. The outfits are clever and delightful and she looks great while wearing them. I can’t help but think of her passion for the comics medium when I see this cover. Also, I’m not afraid to admit that I think both Betty and Veronica look rather fetching in their lingerie.” – Steve Seigh

Rocket Raccoon #6

Written by Skottie Young

Art by Jake Parker

Cover by Skottie Young


“Oh boy, it looks as if Rocket’s gone and got himself in another interstellar fix. I hope he’s got some super nova-charged breath mints in that utility belt of his.” – Steve Seigh

Batgirl #37

Written by Cameron Stewart and Brendan Fletcher

Art by Babs Tarr

Cover by Cameron Fletcher


“If you like it than you should have put a ring on it. Oh oh oh, shake it off, shake it off, oh oh! I’m all about that bass, bout that bass, no treble. Heh, okay, you get my point by now, right?” – Steve Seigh

Batman Eternal #36

Story by Scott Snyder and James Tynion

Art by Fernando Blanco

Cover by Tommy Lee Edwards 


“I’m always up for a good Batman silhouette and this cover’s got an ominous doozy.” – Steve Seigh

Little Nemo Returns To Slumberland #3

Illustrations and Cover by Gabriel Rodriguez


“C’mon! Who doesn’t love a good MC Escher-inspired comic book cover? I know I do!” – Steve Seigh
