Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week 04/29/14

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!

Boom! Wow! Anyone who’s listened to the Talking Comics podcast knows that I’m a long-time fan of all things anime, and this cover has good it going on! Could you imagine if Gainax got their mits on the rights to Wayward? Oh man, that would really be something else!

Well, of course…


Writer: Dan Abnett

Artist: Tom Derenick; Trevor Scott

Cover Dan Panosian

unnamed (2)

Even though I realize that this will be their swan song, having the chance to see the super-heroes of the real Earth-Two is a thrill that this stirring cover by Dan Panosian helps bring to a fever pitch!


Writer: Kelly Sue DeConnick

Artist: Valentine DeLandro; Robert Wilson IV

Cover: Valentine DeLandro

unnamed (3)

As I love retro-themed covers (being old enough to remember these things in their original incarnations!), the 70s exploitation film vibe given off by this image by Val DeLandro just leaps off the page for me!

FANTASTIC FOUR #645 (Marvel)

Writer: James Robinson

Artist: Leonard Kirk

Variant Cover: Michael Golden

unnamed (4)

Looking at this cover for the final issue of Fantastic Four, with its family-oriented theme and story elements from the classic Lee/Kirby era, I’m both smiling and (vainly) fighting back some small tears.

THE KURDLES (Fantagraphics)

Writer/Artist/Cover: Robert Goodin

unnamed (5)

This just makes me smile…

Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week Soundtrack

This week’s track is “Wonder” by the band Eternal Summers. I’ve been traveling this past week, and this band has provided at least 75% of the soundtrack for my trip. They’ve got a dreamy, smooth sound that I adore, as well as a heavy amount of fuzz and trippy effects to round it all out. Take a listen, and then if you want, investigate the band a bit farther using the link provided here:

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