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!
So without further or due let’s get this week’s selections highlighted!
Steve Seigh’s Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week
Guardians of the Galaxy #23
Written by Brian Michael Bendis
Art by Valerio Schiti
Cover by Christian Ward
“This cover is a thing of beauty! Christian has been killing it on Fraction’s ODY-C, but I’d say this is one of my favorite works from him yet. ” – Steve Seigh
Deadpool’s Art of War #4
Written by Peter David
Art and Cover by Scott Koblish
“Ha! I’ve been loving these Japanese-inspired covers. Deadpool seems to fit right in to this universe, huh?” – Steve Seigh
Written by Haden Blackman

“I find this cover to be pretty spectacular, and pardon me for being cheesy, but this series has been hitting the bullseye for me since issue #1.” – Steve Seigh
Loki: Agent of Asgard #10
Written by Al Ewing
Art and Cover by Lee Garbet
“Okay, um, what? Honestly, I really dig this cover, even if I’m not able to describe exactly why that is. It’s just super funky., I suppose.” – Steve Seigh
Superior Iron Man #4
Written by Tom Taylor
Art by Yildiray Cinar
Cover by Mike Choi
“There’s probably a reason for this, but always seem drawn to covers where heroes are being made to look subservient … even if they are out cold.” – Steve Seigh

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!
