Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week 09/09/15

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!

Bob Reyer’s Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week

HARROW COUNTY #5 (Dark Horse)

Writer: Cullen Bunn

Artist/Cover: Tyler Crook


Once again, an outstanding cover has me regretting my choice to trade-wait on this series, which from all reports (Thanks, Steve!) has only gotten better each issue from the stellar debut.

Artist/Cover: Karl Kerschl

On the subject of witchery, it seems as if Olive, Maps, and Pomeline have some trouble brewing!

(Actually, Robert, the young ladies have become thespians, and are enacting the cauldron scene from “The Scottish Play”; you couldn’t have forgotten “Double double, toil and trouble”, now could you, darling? @udrey)


Writer: Amanda Conner; Jimmy Palmiotti

Artist: Emanuela Lupacchino

Cover: Amanda Conner

Ms. Conner’s pose for Kori brings to my mind the balletic flying sequences from the Helen Slater “Supergirl”:
