Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week 11/11/15
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!

Fun Fact: I used to pull out the tape in my cassettes and use the materials to write words – most of the time in cursive. I miss those days a bit. Another Fun Fact: I once owned a demo copy of Nirvana’s Bleach album. It was given to me by my cousin, Jeff. I wish that it was still in my possession, but alas.

In a week where’s there’s both a new James Bond film and comic, what better way to mark it than by selecting this image that’s evocative of 007’s paperback covers?
ALL-NEW, ALL-DIFFERENT AVENGERS #1 (Marvel)
Writer: Mark Waid
Artist: Adam Kubert
There are a bunch’o’covers for this new #1, and I’ve selected two; one that I hope captures the tone of this new incarnation of “Earth’s Mightiest Heroes”, and one that I know does that for their past!

Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week Soundtrack
This past Halloween, Tool performed live in front of an audience of lucky ass people. During that show they busted out this mysterious number that many have claimed is part of a new song by the band. Take that information with a grain of salt and enjoy the footage. I think it sounds pretty sweet, and legit as part of something to come. Enjoy!
That’s all, folks! Join us next week for another round of covers and an avalanche of incredible cover art!
