Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week 06/17/15
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!
Steve Seigh’s Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week
Written by Noelle Stevenson
Art by Sandford Greene
Cover by Phil Noto
Oh hell yes! Not only are the Runaways coming back, but my girl Valeria is leading the pack! Also, I’m not sure that I’ve ever seen a Phil Noto rendition of Marvel’s smartest child, and boy does she look fantastic!
Deadpool’s Secret Secret Wars #2
Written by Cullen Bunn
Art by Matteo Lolli and Jacopo Catmagni
Cover by Chris Bachalo
Ugh! Way to make me jealous of your pool-side situation Gwenpool!
Black Canary #1
Written by Brendan Fletcher
Art and Cover by Annie Wu
Oh man, who’s excited to see the Black Canary kick ass and rock out, this week? I know that I am! I love the way those bold colors add to the atmosphere and attitude of Canary’s performance.
Bucky Barnes Winter Soldier #9
Written by Ales Kot
Art by Marco Rudy
Cover by Mike Del Mundo
Ugh! Could you imagine have to cope with a battered Battleworld on your back … then Loki adding his own weight to the mix? Hmm, at least I think that’s Battleworld.
Written by Rick Remender
Art and Cover by Greg Tocchini
I’ve got no idea what is happening on this cover but it sure is beautiful.
Bob Reyer’s Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week
ARCHIE VS. PREDATOR #3 (Archie)
Writer: Alex DiCampi
Artist: Rich Koslowski
Cover: Gisele Lagace
If the issue we chose as TCBotW was more in this vein, I’d have loved it…not to mention that this cover features as many images of the Predator as that entire issue did!
PREZ #1 (DC)
Writer: Mark Russell
Artist/Cover: Ben Caldwell
As long as we’re mashing things up, how about this fun take on “Washington Crossing the Delaware”!
BLACK CANARY/ZATANNA: BLOODSPELL (TPB)
Writer: Paul Dini
Artist/Cover: Joe Quinones
I think that I chose this Joe Quinones cover when this book first came out in hardcover, but it’s so great that it deserves a second run to commemorate my purchase of a print of it from Mr. Quinones at Special Edition!
MS. MARVEL #16 (Marvel)
Writer: G. Willow Wilson
Artist: Adrian Alphona
Cover: Kris Anka
Oh boy…Jersey City looks to have had better days than this “Last” one! Here’s hoping that everyone makes it through OK, particularlyTC’s own Joey Braccino and his family!
PRINCELESS: BE YOURSELF #1 (Action Lab)
Writer: Jeremy Whitley
Artist/Cover: Emily Martin
To happier times, Bedelia and Sparky the Dragon seem to be having some fun! (By the way, I hope that you checked out our Princeless Month coverage, as it was pretty darned special!)
Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week Soundtrack
This week’s selection is a Kids Cover of the song ‘Sober‘ by the band Tool. You have GOT to check these young ones out. Seriously, every now and again the Aaron O’ Keefe Foundation releases another one of these videos and I am just blown away by the talent displayed in each and every one of them. Enjoy!
That’s all, folks! Join us next week for another round of covers and an avalanche of incredible cover art!
