Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week 12/16/15
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
Dragon Age Magekiller #1
Written by Greg Rucka
Art by Carmen Nunez Camero – Terry Pallot
Cover Art by Sachin Teng
This image may be violent but it sure is gorgeous! I wonder what manner or treachery led to this beauty’s bloody end? I guess I’ll just have to read it to find out.
Wicked + The Divine #17
Written by Kieron Gillen
Art by Brandon Graham – Various
Cover Art by Jamie McKelvie & Matt Wilson
“I AM FASHION CAT! OBEY ME! BRING ME GUCCI! BRING ME CHANEL! AND SOMEONE GET ME AN ANUBIS-DAMNED RUNWAY!”
Unbeatable Squirrel Girl #3
Written by Ryan North
Art by Erica Henderson
Cover Art by Matt Waite
Is it just my imagination, or this totally a Jamie McKelvie-inspired image not unlike several Wicked + Divine covers? Either way, I really like the way Doreen and Tippy are outlined in thick-black against that bright yellow background.
Clean Room #3
Written by Gail Simone
Art by Jon Davis-Hunt – Jenny Frison
Cover by Jenny Frison
“Pssssst. Excuse me, can you spare a square?”
Bob Reyer’s Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week
BATMAN ’66 #30 (DC)
Writer: Jeff Parker
Artist/Cover: Michael & Laura Allred
This cover by the Allreds shows just some of the merchandise that was put out during the run of the “Batman” TV show…and boy did I wish that I saved some of these!
MIGHTY THOR #2 (Marvel)
Writer: Jason Aaron
Artist/Cover Russell Dauterman
Even though it looks as if Loki’s about to get hammered, that smile on his face tells me that he has a plan!
SQUADRON SUPREME #1 (Marvel)
Writer: James Robinson
Artist: Leonard Kirk
Cover: Alex Ross
Speaking of having plans, I wouldn’t want to interfere with whatever this group has in mind!
UNBEATABLE SQUIRREL GIRL #3 (Marvel)
Writer: Ryan North
Artist/Cover: Erica Henderson
It looks as if Doreen’s time-travelling has had some unexpected side-effects, doesn’t it?
