Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week 02/18/15
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!

Bob Reyer’s Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week
DARK HORSE PRESENTS #37 (Dark Horse)

The creators on the inside might be “various”, but this striking cover could only be the work of the singular Mike Mignola!
WONDER WOMAN #39 (DC)
Writer: Meredith Finch
Artist: David Finch
Variant Cover: Phil Jimenez
I’m still boycotting this title, but by selecting this hilarious cover by Phil Jimenez (one of the best WW artists ever!), I can check back in for a quick peek whenever I’m feeling stressed about the current state of the Amazon Princess.
THRILLING ADVENTURE HOUR PRESENTS SPARKS NEVADA (Image)

Well, pardner, how could I not pick this cool genre mash-up by the team of artist J. Bone and Jordie Bellaire, colorist extraordinaire?
MS. MARVEL #12 (Marvel)

It’s Valentine’s Day in Jersey City, and Kamala looks as if she’s having a great time!
SHE-HULK #12 (Marvel)

Variant Cover: Kris Anka
Not to slight the stellar work of regular cover artist Chris Wada, but this final-issue image by Kris Anka that features the charming supporting cast of Charles Soule’s entertaining run on She-Hulk is surely the best way to bring down the curtain!
