Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week 01/21/15

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!

Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week Soundtrack

This week’s track comes from the incredibly groovy and inventive Booklyn-based duo Buke and Gase. I highly recommend checking out all of their music, and I’ve got it on good authority that they’ll be releasing another album sometime in 2015. My body is ready.

That’s all, folks! Join us next week for another round of covers and an avalanche of incredible cover art!

This is a column featuring Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week 01/21/15 as chosen by Steve Seigh, Bob Reyer, and several staff members and fans of Talking Comics.
