Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week 06/10/15
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!

Bob Reyer’s Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week
HARROW COUNTY #2 (Dark Horse)
Writer: Cullen Bunn
Artists/Cover: Tyler Crook
I make it a point to avoid any trees that have human faces…I’m just sayin’.,,
GOTHAM ACADEMY #7 (DC)
Writer: Brendan Fletcher; Becky Cloonan
Artist: Mingjue Helen Chen
Variant Cover: Craig Rousseau
Say…is it me, or do you hear a faint sound of laughter?
LI’L DEPRESSED BOY: SUPPOSED TO BE THERE TOO #5 (Image)
Writer: S. Steven Struble
Artist/Cover: Sina Grace
A series that I know nothing about, but this cover had me feeling very badly for what I assume is the title character! (I loved the nod to the “Kilroy” image from WW II that our soldiers used to leave behind on walls to mark their presence)
CAPTAIN MARVEL & THE CAROL CORPS #1 (Marvel)
Writer: Kelly Sue DeConnick; Kelly Thompson
Artist/Cover: David Lopez
Speaking of those past times, this cover by David Lopez certainly has that “we can do it!” vibe!
SILVER SURFER #12 (Marvel)
Writer: Dan Slott
Artist/Cover: Michael & Laura Allred
I’m feeling a bit wistful, as I’m hoping that we’re not nearing the start of the final lap on this spectacular series, or at least our time with Dawn Greenwood as the Surfer’s travelling companion.

This week’s selection comes from the band Sister Crayon, who’ve just this past week released their brand-new album entitled ‘Devoted‘. You can check that out on itunes. In the meantime, give a listen to this powerful track from their previous EP entitled Cynic.
