Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week 04/01/15

Hey, thanks for checking out Talking Comics: Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week!

You’ve got to admit, New Comic Book Release Day is pretty much the best day of the week. 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

Uncanny Avengers #3

Written by Rick Remender

Art and Cover by Daniel Acuna

1406076_xl

Would you look at all those colors! I positively love the smooth, painterly look of this cover. Considering that Easter is right around the corner, it’s kind of nice to see a bold and beautiful color using tranquil textures and sort pastels to create a busy yet serene comic book cover.

Wolf Moon #5

Written by Cullen Bunn

Art by Jeremy Haun

Cover by Marguerite Sauvage

1413834_xl

Ugh! Can you imagine the breath on that thing?

Amazing Spider-Man #17

Written by Dan Slott & Christos Gage

Art by Humberto Ramos

Cover by Scott Forbes

1429371_xl

Ha! Mama American Gothic don’t want none of your sass, Howard. Take it some place else.

Kanan the Last Padawan #1

Written by Greg Weisman

Art by Pepe Larraz

Baby Variant by Skottie Young

1429380_xl

I might not be the biggest Star Wars fan, but this cover is all kinds of cool. Just look at that maniacal smile. Gotta love it!

Uncanny Avengers #3

Written by Rick Remender

Art by Daniel Acuna

Women of Marvel Variant Cover

1429389_xl

Oh Wanda, Pietro is not going to be happy about this. That said, it will be hilarious.

LADY KILLER #4 (Dark Horse)

Writer: Joelle Jones; Jamie S. Rich

Artist/Cover: Joelle Jones

unnamed (7)

“You’ll never know how many fun, fab uses there are for a stylish pair of stiletto heels until you’ve owned some…”

GOD HATES ASTRONAUTS #7 (Image)

Writer/Artist/Cover: Ryan Browne

unnamed (6)

This cover sure has a lot going on; so much so that you could make up about 14 different stories of your own without cracking the thing open! Nicely done, Ryan Browne!

GEORGE ROMERO’S EMPIRE OF THE DEAD: ACT THREE #1 (Marvel)

Writer: George Romero

Artist; Andrea Mutti

Cover: Francesco Mattina

Variant Cover: Phil Noto

unnamed (5)

unnamed (4)

As I couldn’t decide between these two gorgeous-but scary covers, you get to see both! I’m pretty scared for what might happen to my favorite zombie/surrogate mom Xavier on that first one by Francesco Mattina, and the second by the always-incredible Phil Noto captures the vibe of this fun series perfectly!

SPIDER-GWEN #3 (Marvel)

Writer: Jason Latour

Artist: Robbie Rodriguez

Variant Cover: Sergio Aragones

unnamed (3)

As I’m sure that Steve has chosen the Robbie Rodriguez “regular”, I’m free to select this Aragones homage to that famous Times Square V.E. Day photo, the original seen below:

unnamed (2)

UNCANNY INHUMANS #0 (Marvel)

Writer: Charles Soule

Artist: Steve McNiven

Variant Cover: Bill Ward

unnamed (1)

Sorry to have gotten so “ducked up”, but I couldn’t resist Bill Ward’s take on Edvard Munch’s “The Scream”!

MONSTERS OF JIMMY CRUMB (21 Pulp)

Writer: James Patrick

Artist/Cover: Jennifer Hickman

unnamed

This very creepy cover has an even-creepier solicit, that includes this scary line:
“Now, Jimmy can’t throw a baseball, but he understands the rules of urban legend monsters exquisitely, and can make them murder for him.”

I can see that I won’t be asking Jimmy to mow my lawn, that’s for darn sure!

Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week Soundtrack

This week’s selection comes from the mesmerizing and prolific band, Godspeed You! Black Emperor. They’re latest album ‘Asunder, Sweet and Other Distress’ has just been released, and you can hear the whole thing right here! Enjoy!

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