Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week 04/08/15

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

Bucky Barnes Winter Soldier #7

Written by Ales Kot

Art by Marco Rudy

Cover by Mike Del Mundo

1413945_xl

Little Billy was having the most magical afternoon, flying his kite atop the shoulders of his robot friend … UNTIL A HORRIFYING DEMON CLOUD OPENED UP ITS JAGGED MAW AND SWALLOWED THEM BOTH! Rest in peace, Little Billy, rest in peace.

Ant Man #4

Written by Nick Spencer

Art by Ramon Rosanas

Cover by Mark Brooks

1413930_xl

Ha ha ha ha ha! I mean c’mon, do I even have to explain to you why I love this cover? I’ve never seen a single episode of Miami Vice in my lifetime, but what we have here is a burly man in a bear outfit, folks. A BURLY MAN IN A BEAR OUTFIT. Your argument is invalid.

S.H.I.E.L.D. #4 

Written by Mark Waid

Art by Alan Davis

Cover by Julian Totino Redesco

1406063_xl

Any cover that shows Sue Storm dressed in some old-school attire and looking rather elegant than posey, I’m in. I really enjoy the blue hues used here. It’s tranquil and quite beautiful.

Bee and Puppycat #8

Written by Natasha Allegri and Garrett Jackson

Art by Natasha Allegri

1430539_xl

“Pardon my Frnch, but Cameron is so tight that if you stuck a lump of coal up his ass, in two weeks you’d have a diamond.” – Ferris Bueller

Adventure Time: Marcelene Gone Adrift #4

Written by Meredith Gran

Art by Carey Pietsch

Cover Variant by Sarah Dill 

1414087_xl

Sing it with me now … “Marcey in the sky with diamonds! Marcey in the sky with diamonds!” Very nice. Give yourselves all a round of applause. Seriously though, those stars, the cross-hatching technique used to create the hair – divine.

Bob Reyer’s Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week

CONVERGENCE: NIGHTWING/ORACLE (DC)

Writer: Gail Simone

Artist: Jan Duursema

Cover: Jill Thompson

unnamed

 

I think that if I had drawn the cover for this book that I would have chosen it, that’s how excited I am to see a Gail Simone-written Oracle story, so that the actual cover sports this thrilling image by Jill Thompson is a big win…and much, much better for the rest of you than if I had done it!

CONVERGENCE: THE QUESTION (DC)

Writer: Greg Rucka

Artist/Cover: Cully Hamner

unnamed (1)

I love the color palette, and the warped geometry of the buildings certainly puts the nature of the series into focus.

SENSATION COMICS VOL. 1 TPB (DC)

Writer: Various

Artist: Various

Cover: Phil Jimenez

SENWW_PhilJimenez_Final-610x475

 

I surely hope that DC has decided to use this stunning variant cover by Phil Jimenez to Sensation Comics #1 in its full wrap-around glory! No matter though, if any version of this image is on the book…I’m in!

HOWARD THE DUCK #2 (Marvel)

Writer: Chip Zdarsky

Artist/Cover: Joe Quinones

unnamed (3)

What better book to have a “duck-face selfie” cover than Howard the Duck, right? The book’s star seems to disagree, however!

SPIDER-WOMAN #6 (Marvel)

Writer: Dennis Hopeless

Artist/Cover: Javier Rodriguez

unnamed (4)

It seems as if Jessica and her new “partner” Ben Urich are having an interesting run-in (run-over?) with a baddie in this retro-styled image by Javier Rodriguez.

STORM #10 (Marvel)

Writer: Greg Pak

Artist/Cover: Al Barrionuevo

unnamed (5)

Nothing to say but…striking!

Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week Soundtrack

This week’s track is called “Big Girls Cry” by the musical artist Sia. The third video and final video featuring ballerina Maddie Zigler has arrived and once again I’m in love. I can’t get over how expressive this little talent is. Her eyes alone tell 100 stories as she acts out her self-destructive, wolf-like actions to the sounds. I really hope to see Sia and her return for another trilogy down the road.

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 04/08/15 as chosen by Steve Seigh, Bob Reyer, and several staff members and fans of Talking Comics.
