Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week 03/30/16
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!

My girl Faith looks amazing on this cover. I love seeing heroes with a big smile on their face. I bet she’s got some sick dance moves, too!
Bob Reyer’s Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week
POSTAL #11 (Image)
Writer: Bryan Edward Hill
Artist: Isaac Goodhart
Cover: Linda Sejic
I sure don’t want to find out what’s lurking around the bend, that for certain!
CAPTAIN AMERICA: SAM WILSON #7 (Marvel)
Writer: Nick Spencer
Artist: Joe Bennett
Variant Covers: Alex Ross; Jim Steranko
A stunning rendition of that first Cap cover by Alex Ross, and here’s the Jack Kirby/Joe Simon original for comparison:
…and then there’s…
I’m a big fan of Jim Steranko’s work, and his too-short run on Cap back in 1969 contains one of my favorite pages of comics ever, so I had to include this cover, if only to show you this:
MOON GIRL & DEVIL DINOSAUR #5 (Marvel)
Writer: Brandon Montclare
Artist/Cover: Amy Reeder
I’ve loved every issue of this series, and for those who haven’t tried it yet, this charming cover by Amy Reeder captures the fun that you’ll find in the story behind it! Speaking of fun…
UNBEATABLE SQUIRREL GIRL #6 (Marvel)
Writer: Ryan North
Artist/Variant Cover; Erica Henderson
I love the convention setting, but I do wonder why Howard’s cat isn’t cos-playing as Tippy, though?
