Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week 01/20/16

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

Silver Surfer #1

Written by Dan Slott

Art by Mike & Laura Allred

Cover by Marco Rudy

1514518_xl

I love the depiction of glee on this cover. The thought of surfing the cosmos with Norrin Radd would certainly put a smile on my face. Also, check out the colors of that wave! Gorgeous!

Phonogram: The Immaterial Girl #6

Written by Kieron Gillen

Art and Cover by Jamie McKelvie – Matthew Wilson

1495153_xl

There’s something about a gaping hole in the night sky that intrigues me. There’s no telling what awaits on the other side.

I Hate Fairyland #4

Words, Art, and Cover by Skottie Young

1495134_xl

Oh Prince Charming, it looks as if you’ve got more than you bargained for in your quest for the wearer of that glass slipper. See you in the funny papers, chump!

Eve Valkyrie #4

Written by Brian Wood

Art by Eduardo Francisco

Cover by Borkur Eiriksson

Sometimes simple and sleek is all you need to create a beautiful cover such as this.

Buffy the Vanpire Slayer Season 10 #23

Written by Christos N. Gage

Art by Megan Levens

Cover by Steve Morris 

1495281_xl

I’ll be honest, I’m not so much digging the reflection in the axe as much as I love this rendition of Sunnydale’s best and brightest slayer. I love the soft color pallete and smooth oil work.

Bob Reyer’s Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week

I just love the fun vibe exuded by this cover by Babs Tarr, whose work grows more strikingly confident each month! Speaking of Ms. Tarr…

MS. MARVEL #3 (Marvel)

Simply “awwww-some”! (Sorry!)

HARLEY QUINN #24 (DC)

Writer: Amanda Conner; Jimmy Palmiotti
Artist: Chad Hardin

As I said last time around, I’m a sucker for “roster covers”, so this “Rogues’ Gallery” of Arkham Asylum inmates is a natural pick for me!

SECRET SIX #10 (DC)

Writer: Gail Simone
Artist/Cover: Dale Eaglesham

unnamed (3)

I’ve heard of having your fingers into everything, but tentacles…?

CAPTAIN MARVEL #1 (Marvel)

Writer: Tara Butters; Michele Fazekas

I love the strength shown by Carol on this Kris Anka cover–*fingers crossed* I feel the same for the script!

PATSY WALKER a.k.a. HELLCAT #2 (Marvel)

unnamed (5)

Here’s a kaffeklatsch I’d like to sit in on!!

SILVER SURFER #1 (Marvel)

Writer: Dan Slott
Artist/Cover: Michael & Laura Allred

Last, but most certainly never least, this magnificent cover by the ever-amazing Allreds is almost certainly going to be among my selections for “Best Cover of 2016”! (I know, “Never buy the first dress you see”, but c’mon…)
