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

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

Book of Death #1

Written by Rob Venditti

Art by Robert Gil and Doug Braithewaite

Cover by Jelena Kevic-Djurdjevic

1436853_xl

Well folks, this it, we may very well be looking at my favorite cover of the year. Look at the way Jelena plays with light in this piece! I mean seriously, there’s magic, anti-gravity, and a young woman whose outfit is positively stunning. I would proudly purchase a print of this cover and hang it in my living room.

Green Lantern The Lost Army #2

Written by Cullen Bunn

Art by Jesus Saiz

Cover by Ben Oliver

1466549_xl

So does Power Girl have a younger sister or cousin, because um ….

Doctor Fate #2

Written by Paul Levitz

Art and Cover by Sonny Liew

1436532_xl

Ha ha ha! I love the “surprise lines” radiating out of Doctor Fate on this cover. I can almost hear him flatly saying. “Well, shit.”

Martian Manhunter #2

Written by Rob WIlliams

Art by Eddy Barrows and Eber Ferreira

Cover by Eric Canete

1466550_xl

Any cover featuring the ever-intriguing Mr. Biscuits gets my vote!

Guardians of Knowhere

Written by Brian Michael Bendis

Art by Mike Deodato

Gwenom Variant Cover by Rob Guillory

1428394_xl

Nope nope nope! I would not want to mess with Gwenom. No sir! Art-wise, though, look at the line detail and creative hood-like placement of the symbiote.It’s genius!

Bob Reyer’s Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week

DARK HORSE PRESENTS #12 (Dark Horse)

Writer: Various

Artist: Various

Cover: Jason Copland

unnamed

As the solicitation proudly exclaims “It’s giant monsters versus giant robots”, and could you ask for anything more?

YEARS OF FUTURE PAST (Marvel)

Writer: Marguerite Bennett

Artist: Mike Norton

Cover: Arthur Adams

unnamed (6)

Very few artists do giant monsters any better than Arthur Adams, and here we see Kitty’s old dragon friend Lockheed getting Medieval on one of those pesky Sentinels!

HARLEY QUINN #18 (DC)

Writer: Amanda Conner; Jimmy Palmiotti

Artist: Chad Hardin

Cover: Amanda Conner

unnamed (1)

I love when an homage comes together…

unnamed (2)

…in this case, referencing this fun cover by 60s/70s DC giant Nick Cardy!

SECRET SIX #4 (DC)

Writer: Gail Simone

Artist: Ken Lashley

Cover: Dale Eaglesham

unnamed (3)

“Hon…do me a favor, can you get Century 21 Real Estate or Re/Max on the phone, please?”

CAPTAIN MARVEL & THE CAROL CORPS (Marvel)

Writer: Kelly Sue DeConnick; Kelly Thompson

Artist/Cover: David Lopez

unnamed (4)

I’ve elsewhere said my farewell to Kelly Sue DeConnick’s Captain Marvel, but I’ll gladly give a snappy salute to Ms. Danvers anytime!

Speaking of farewells…

HAWKEYE #22 (Marvel)

Writer: Matt Fraction

Artist/Cover: David Aja

unnamed (5)

Just a great image that is so evocative of the street-level attitude this series wore on its sleeve. It’s so great to see a Fraction/Aja Hawkeye issue, but that thrill won’t make up for its absence from the Marvel line-up in the future.

SILVER SURFER #13 (Marvel)

Writer: Dan Slott

Artist/Cover: Michael & Laura Allred

unnamed (7)

 

Can even the Sky-rider of the Spaceways beat back the editorial edicts that cause a universe to end? Perhaps Dan Slott and the Amazing Allreds can pull off a Hail Mary?

Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week Soundtrack

I am positively IN LOVE with the band Alabama Shakes! Funk, soul, heart, passion, and terror are all emotions that will surface when listening to their titanic sound. Be sound to check out their new album “Sound & Color“.

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 06/15/15 as chosen by Steve Seigh and Bob Reyer of Talking Comics.
