Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week 08/26/15

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

Fight Club 2 #4

Written by Chuck Palahniuk

Art by Cameron Stewart

Cover by David Mack


Wow! I love this watercolor on lace ensemble! David Mack has this uncanny way of blending art materials that I really admire. Often times his images are soft in nature, but haunting all the same. It makes for truly beautiful cover art, don’t you think?

New MGMT #1

Words, Art, and Cover by Matt Kindt



Marvel Zombies #3

Written by Simon Spurrier

Art by Kev Walker

Incentive Variant Cover – My apologies, I was not able to locate the name of the artist who’d responsible for this cover. Why do they always make information like this so hard to find?


Who doesn’t love a good Elsa Bloodstone action shot?

Justice League of America #4

Written by Bryan Hitch

Art by Bryan Hitch and Daniel Henriques

Variant Cover by Terry Dodson


This poster art make me want to enlist! Okay, not really, but still, it’s gorgeous and ferocious!

S.H.I.E.L.D. #9

Written by Mark Waid – Various

Art by Jack Kirby and Lee Ferguson

Incentive Arthur Adams Variant


I love me a good “the gang’s all here” cover, and this one has that in spades! Plus, a smooth rendition of the Howling Commandos is always worth featuring.

Speaking of the original Nick Fury, Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D., this special anniversary issue features a cover pencilled by Jack Kirby and inked by Jim Steranko from a story that’s never been printed before!


Writer: Kelly Sue DeConnick; Kelly Thompson

Artist/Cover: David Lopez

As the end of the Kelly Sue DeConnick era of Captain Marvel draws near, it’s great having this uplifting image by series artist David Lopez to raise my flagging spirits!

I remain a big fan of this light-hearted 70s/80s science-fiction series, so even though I own the originals, I may have to pick up this collection featuring the Charlton Comics adventures of Alec Tronn and Nova Kane!
