Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week 05/28/15
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!

Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week Soundtrack
I’ve been oddly obsessed with the band September Girls for these past few weeks. They’ve got this fuzzy, far-away drone to their sound that I simply adore – and at times I find their music to be oddly freeing and energetic. Check them out!
That’s all, folks! Join us next week for another round of covers and an avalanche of incredible cover art!
