Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week 01/06/16
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
Written by Tom King
Art by Gabriel Hernandez-Walta
Cover by Mike Del Mundo
This cover is so great. I love the soft colors and how you can totally hear her whistling an innocent tune as she cleans house. Also, she’s using a scythe as a broom! That’s just cool!
Written by Sam Humphries
Art and Cover by Mike Del Mundo
Ahhhhhhh! How ridiculously fun is this cover? It’s giving me a real Fear and Loathing meets Mad Max meets Barbie feel, and I’m alright with that! And again, Mike Del Mundo. Dude’s got so much talent it’s astounding.
Spider-Man Deadpool #1
Written by Joe Kelly
Art by Ed McGuinness
Cover by Mike Del Mundo
Awwww, it’s okay, Spidey, it’s not the size of the gun that counts, it’s how you fire it. Let’s not tell Deadpool that, though. I’ll just go to his head. Both of them. Also, Mike Del Mundo, what what?!
Miracle Man #6
Written by Neil Gaiman – Mark Buckingham
Art and Cover by Mark Buckingham
Auf ihrem Weg zum Horizont
Hielt man für Ufos aus dem All
Darum schickte ein General
‘ne Fliegerstaffel hinterher
Alarm zu geben, wenn’s so wär
Dabei war’n dort am Horizont
Nur neunundneunzig Luftballons”
Howard the Duck #3
Written by Chip Zdarsky – Christopher Hasting
Art by Danillo Beyruth – Joe Quinones
Oh Howard, I can totally relate to that look on your face. I happen to fly a lot, these days. There’s not much you can do when your girlfriend lives in Canada, you know? Oh sure, I could drive, but it’s an 11 1/2 hour long trip! Who the hell wants to be bothered with that? Imagine the gas, the mileage, THE TOLLS! Blech!
Bob Reyer’s Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week
MYSTERY GIRL #2 (Dark Horse)
Writer: Paul Tobin
Artist/Cover: Alberto Alburquerque
We’re just beginning to feel Winter’s cold here in the New York metro area, but this cover has me shivering a bit nonetheless!
THE EIGHTH SEAL #2 (IDW)
Writer: James Tynion IV
Artist: Jeremy Rock
Cover: Ming Doyle
“Four-out-of-five doctors recommend Anacin for headache pain relief…”
BITCH PLANET #6 (IMAGE)
Writer: Kelly Sue DeConnick
Artist: Taki Soma
Cover: Valentine De Landro
As all of them have, this cover by Val De Landro certainly captures that 70s exploitation/WIP vibe that this fabulous series has done such a great job at transforming into something quite empowering!
A-FORCE #1 (Marvel)
Writer: G. Willow Wilson
Artist: Jorge Molina
Variant Cover: Victor Ibanez
I’m a sucker for “roster update” issues and their covers, so I just love seeing this galaxy of heroines who might just find their way into this series!
