Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week 01/07/15

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!

Lady Killer #1

“I’ve no idea what this book is about, but this cover has totally got my attention. I’m hoping for Pleasantville meets Serial Mom.” – Steve Seigh

The Names #5

“Rather than comment on how awesome this cover is, I’m going to let this song by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs do it for me.”

Fairest #33

“Goldilocks looks like she’s ready to sign up with the Sucker Punch Corp. and I like it!” – Steve Seigh

The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl #1

“As much as I love the original cover (featured below in Bob’s section of the column) by Erica Henderson, I’m a sucker for a fun and funny Skottie Young cover.” – Steve Seigh

Deadly Class #10

Written by Rick Remender

Art and Cover by Wesley Craig and Lee Loughridge


“Ha! It’s like Wesley and Lee tore a page out of my middle school notebook! Dude I used to draw was named Evan, after some douche that threw my entire school bad down a sewer grate … for a laugh. Prick.” – Steve Seigh

Bob Reyer’s Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week

ARMY OF DARKNESS #2 (Dynamite)

Writer: Cullen Bunn

Artist: Larry Watts

Variant Cover: Jay Shaw


“I’m a sucker for covers that resemble old movie posters, so this one by Jay Shaw that crosses horror with James Bond is a winner!” – Bob Reyer

Artist: Various

Cover A: Paul Renaud

Cover B: Pascal Campion

unnamed (1)

unnamed (2)

“A commendable initiative by Marvel gets going behind these two fine covers. Of course, who better to use as a symbol than Peter Parker on the first, but I do love seeing Captain Marvel reading the riot act to those bullies on the school steps!” – Bob Reyer

OPERATION S.I.N. #1 (Marvel)

Writer: Kathryn Immonen

Artist: Rich Ellis

Cover: Michael Komark

unnamed (3)

“Once again, I fell head-over-heels for a cinematic image! Love that gizmo that Howard Stark is wielding!” – Bob Reyer


Writer: Ryan North

Artist/Cover: Erica Henderson

“Around these parts, we’ve probably all day-dreamed about being an Avenger, but this new series features someone whose dreams might come true!” – Bob Reyer

FEATHERS #1 (BOOM! Studios)

Writer/Artist/Cover: Jorge Corona

unnamed (5)

“This new all-ages book form BOOM! centers on a reclusive young boy named Poe who’s trying to find his way in the world with the help of his new friend, Bianca. That he was born covered in feathers (raven’s, I would bet) is certainly going to complicate things, but this charming cover by Jorge Corona gives me hope that things will be OK in the end.” – Bob Reyer
