Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week 01/14/15

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!


So without further or due let’s get this week’s selections highlighted!

“Wow! Okay, so we’re introducing Kamala to the team in just the second issue? I’m totally going to be there for that. I can’t wait to hear Coulson’s reaction to her personality and powers. Also, this cover, beautiful!” – Steve Seigh

Deathlok #4

Written by Nathan Edmondson

Art and Cover by Mike Perkins


“Those who listen to our podcast know that I’m a big fan of Domino, and I love the way she’s silhouetted against that gorgeous black and white collage. Deathlok is going to have his hands full this issue. Good luck, buddy.” – Steve Seigh

Bob Reyer’s Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week


Writer: Jeff Lemire

Artist: Neil Edwards; Jay Leinsten

Variant Cover: Karl Kerschl


“This week, DC has variant covers spot-lighting the 75th Anniversary of the original Flash, although every cover so far has had the Barry Allen version and not Jay Garrick. I’m not complaining, though, about this one that features two of Carmine Infantino’s most famous characters, done to a nice turn by Karl Kerschl!” – Bob Reyer


Writer: Kelly Sue DeConnick

Artist/Cover: David Lopez

“Captain Marvel #10 would have probably made my “Top Ten” single issues for 2014 if it had come out in time for our deliberations, so I’m much looking forward to reading the second part of the story here-in, a feeling heightened by this cover featuring Kit “Lt.Trouble” Renner.” – Bob Reyer


Writer: Dan Slott

Artist/Cover: Michael & Laura Allred

unnamed (2)

“Michael and Laura Allred…’nuff said!” – Bob Reyer

STAR WARS #1 (Marvel)

Writer: Jason Aaron

Artist: John Cassady

Variant Cover: Alex Ross

“I’m far more a “Trekkie” than a “Star Wars guy”, but I wouldn’t mind having this image by Alex Ross as a poster on my wall!” – Bob Reyer
