Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week 12/17/14

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

Teen Titans #5

Written by Will Pfeifer

Art by Kenneth Rocafort

Variant Cover by Darwyn Cooke


“Curse you Darwyn Cooke and DC Comics, this might have been in contention for my Favorite Comic Book Cover of the Year … if you had released it before we recorded our deliberation shows! Smooth move, Ex Lax! I mean really, this cover has me written all over it! The bold colors, the rocking out back-to-back style, and I know, I just KNOW that Robin is about to perform a stage dive! Way to drop the ball, DC!” – Steve Seigh

Catwoman #37

Written by Genevieve Valentine

Art by Garry Brown

Cover by Darwyn Cooke


“Pffft, the cow that jumped over the moon has got nothing on Selena Kyle, brother.” – Steve Seigh

Manifest Destiny #12

Written by Chris Dinges

Art by Matthew Roberts

Cover by Owen Gieni


“Check out the detail of the tribe on this cover! I’m really digging that headdress and the different patterns used for their warpaint is just so cool. Man, I really wish the second trade of this series would come out already so I can catch up.” – Steve Seigh

Elektra #9

Written by Haden Blackman

Art and Cover by Michael Del Mundo


“Oh man, Elektra’s about to work her way out of the middle … one ninja at a time. Sorry boys, you about to die!” – Steve Seigh

Batman #37 Variant by Darwyn Cooke

“You see it, right? I can’t be the only one who sees that this cover was modeled after those classic drama masks that depict “joy” and “sadness”. Brilliant.” – Steve Seigh
