Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week 11/25/15
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
We Are Robin #6
Written by Lee Bermejo
Art and Cover by Jorge Corona
In my opinion, this truly a frightening cover. I love the black, yellow, and red color combination used in conjunction with the negative space, though I can’t help but feel as it the Robin’s design is a tad Nazi-ish. It’s the arm-band. It makes me a bit uncomfortable. I can’t be the only person who feels this way. Regardless, I still love the cover.
Written by Cullen Bunn
Art by Trevor McCarthy
Animation DC x Looney Tunes Cover
Ha ha ha! Oh boy! Aquaman is about to discover “a whole new world” of ridiculousness!
Black Magick #2
Written by Greg Rucka
Art and Cover by Nicola Scott
Loving the ‘Vertigo’ vibe from this killer cover. Black Magick is most definitely a series that you can swallow you up.
Written by Robbie Thompson
Art by Stacey Lee

Not only do I enjoy the art style of this cover a great deal, I am also really digging on Silk’s new do!
Unbeatable Squirrel Girl #2
Written by Ryan North

I’ll just end it here, as for my money, nothing I could pick should have to follow this one!
HENCHGIRL #2 (Scout Comics)
Artist/Writer/Cover: Kristen Gudsnuk
I’m not sure what sort of purse would allow you to carry a semi-automatic rifle into a fancy-dress ball, but I love this image by Ms.Gudsnuk! (As an aside, I enjoyed the heck out of the first issue, and this cover just whets my appetite for more of this fun story!)
Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week Soundtrack
As the album release schedule for 2015 winds to a close, I thought I’d pull a song from a few years back that I never tire of. Enjoy!
