Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week 12/23/15
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, 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
All-New Wolverine #3
Written by Tom Taylor
Art by David Lopez – David Navarrot
Cover by Bengal
Oh wow! Look at the motion and pulse-pounding action of this cover! Seriously, I kind of wish there was a 3D version of this, but we all know what that would lead to.
And then there’s this beautiful variant cover by David Lopez!
Black Magick #3
Written by Greg Rucka
Art by Nicola Scott
Violet is one of my all time favorite colors, and I positively love the way it’s used here. There’s something truly ethereal and powerful about this image as well.
Written by Gerry Conway
Art by Mike Perkins
Cover by Mike Del Mundo
Arooooooooo! I could make a really lame pun about howling over this cover, but I’m not going to do that. Nope. Not at all. Moving along, now!
Colder Toss the Bones #4
Written by Paul Tobin
Art and Cover by Juan Ferreyra
I love the water-colors, angle, and harrowing vibe this cover gives me. It gives me a sense of minor-vertigo. Like if I stare too long at it I’ll fall right through the comic.
Bob Reyer’s Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week
BLACK CANARY #6 (DC)
Writer: Brendan Fletcher
Artist: Annie wu
Cover: Pia Guerra & WB Animation
Could this cover be foreshadowing a new series for the “Birds of Prey”?
HARLEY QUINN & POWER GIRL #6 (DC)
Writer: Amanda Conner; Jimmy Palmiotti
Artist: Stephane Roux
Cover: Amanda Conner
With “The Force Awakens” in theatres, I guess it’s only natural for Ms. Conner to channel a Star Wars poster in her own unique way for use on the finale of this loopy mini-series! Here’s the original, by the way:
HOWARD THE DUCK #3 (Marvel)
Writer: Chip Zdarsky; Christopher Hasting
Artist: Joe Quinones; Danillo Beyruth
Cover: Joe Quinones
I have the issues where Howard becomes a master of Quack-Fu, but the Power Cosmic…who knew?
ROWDY RODDY PIPER, MONSTER KILLER (Grind House Comics)
Writer: Ian Edgington
Artist: Cliff Richards; Michael S. Bartolo
Cover: Joe Jusko
I haven’t seen Joe Jusko’s work in many years, probably since his Marvel trading card days, but he’s a perfect fit for this material!
Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week Soundtrack
Would you believe me if I told you that Veruca Salt is back? Well, you should, because check out the link below to hear some of their brand-new music! I used to positively love this band. Their debut album, American Thighs still holds up well to this day, in my humble opinion.
That’s all, folks! Join us next week for another round of covers and an avalanche of incredible cover art!
