Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week 08/19/15

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!

Is anyone else getting a “Mask” vibe from this? Remember the scene where Stanley throws the mask off the bridge? Anyway, I love the colorful aura surrounding the masks as it sinks into the murky sea.

Welcome Back #1

Art by Jonathan Brandon Sawyer

Okay, so the plethora of pockets might be a bit much, but I’m loving that hot pink on black and white combo happening here.

Island #2

I don’t know about you, but I’d welcome a beautiful creature such as this to drag my down to the briny depths of the ocean for a coiled, drowning embrace.

Meow meow meow. Meow meow, meow meow meow meow. Meow. You feel me?

Bob Reyer’s Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week

SECRET SIX #5 (DC)

Writer: Gail Simone

Artist/Cover: Dale Eaglesham

unnamed

As they said on the poster for the 80s horror flick “Blood Beach”:

“Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water,,,you can’t get there!”

WONDER WOMAN OMNIBUS VOL.1 (DC)

Writer/Artist/Cover: George Perez

unnamed (1)

I’ve often said around these parts that Mr. Perez set the modern standard for Wonder Woman, so it’s grand that these stories are coming back into print, and behind the iconic cover for the first issue of his run, although the original was a wrap-around:

RAT QUEENS #11 (Image)

Writer: Kurtis Wiebe

Artist/Cover: Stjepan Sejic

unnamed (3)

With this amazing cover, Stjepan Sejic puts his flag in the ground as the new artist on Rat Queens!

GUARDIANS TEAM-UP #10 (Marvel)

Writer: Tim Seeley

Artist/Cover; Mike Norton

unnamed (4)

If you stare at this long enough, it is kinda like “E.T.”… provided you’ve done a whole bunch of shots!

SECRET WARS: SECRET LOVE #1 (Marvel)

Writer: Jeremy Whitley; various

Artist: Various

Cover: David Nakayama

unnamed (5)

How could I resist a cover that has this as a solicitation:

“When worlds collide, can their love survive?”

PRINCELESS: RAVEN, THE PIRATE PRINCESS (Action Lab)

Writer: Jeremy Whitley

Artist/Variant Cover: Rosy Higgins; Ted Brandt

unnamed (6)

I surely agree with the sentiments expressed on this cover by Ms. Higgins & Mr. Brandt, and of course, Mr. Whitley, as well!
