Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week 04/06/16

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!

Alabaster: The Good, The Bad, and the Bird #5

“Hey … Hey, you up there! Is this Agrabah? I think I might have taken a wrong turn at the last sand dune!”

House of Penance #1

Written by Peter J. Tomasi

Art and Cover by Ian Bertram

1516416_xl

What a striking cover! I love the black and red against the beige cityscape. Oh, and is that a hammer? Yeah, I think I’ll stay away from her!

Harrow County #11

Written by Cullen Bunn

Art and Cover by Tyler Crook

1516414_xl

I love the colors of this cover. I would not want to run into this snake any day of the week. No sir!

Gotham Academy #17

Written by Brendan Fletcher – Various

Art by Adam Archer – Various

Cover by Mingjue Helen Chen

1516140_xl

There’s something about Gotham at night that really speaks to me. Loving that purple backdrop, too.

Mockingbird #2

Art by Kate Niemczyk

Cover Art by Kirbi Fagan

1533827_xl

Mockingbird or Sir Psycho Sexy the movie poster? You decide!

And then there’s this cover by Nen Chang …

Spider-Gwen #7

Yet another great cover featuring Marvel’s amazing Spider-Women!

Bob Reyer’s Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week

DC BOMBSHELLS #11 (and #12, to boot!) DC

Writer: Marguerite Bennett
Artist: Elizabeth Torque; Mirka Andolfo; Laura Braga
Cover: Ant Lucia

unnamed

 

I’m cheating a bit by using the covers for two issues at once, but this connecting cover of the united “Bombshells” by Ant Lucia, the artist whose images inspired the series is worth bending the rules for!

A-FORCE #4 (Marvel)

Writer: G. Willow Wilson; Kelly Thompson
Artist/Cover: Jorge Molina

unnamed (1)

Speaking of a gathering of heroes, it seems as if the plight of Singularity has rallied her once-and-future friends to her cause! (Anyone not reading this series is missing out on some great stuff!)

CAPTAIN AMERICA 75TH ANNIVERSARY MAGAZINE (Marvel)

Writer: Various
Artist: Various
Cover: John Byrne

unnamed (2)

This image by John Byrne was originally the cover to Captain America #250 (although it was festooned with UPC codes, logos, and a Toys R Us ad!), and if Cap were running in the present election, he’d surely get my vote! (There’s also a variant using the image from Cap #112 by Jack Kirby, and one by Alex Ross!)

unnamed (3)

unnamed (4)

PRETTY DEADLY #9 (Image)

Writer: Kelly Sue DeConnick
Artist/Cover: Emma Rios

unnamed (5)

Any cover by the insanely talented Ms. Emma Rios rates a spot on my list!

MOCKINGBIRD #2 (Marvel)

Writer: Chelsea Cain
Artist: Kate Niemczyk
Cover: Joelle Jones

unnamed (6)

…as will any cover by Ms. Joelle Jones of Lady Killer renown!

GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY #7 (Marvel)

Writer: Brian Michael Bendis
Artist: Valerio Schiti
Cover: Arthur Adams

unnamed (7)

For me, Arthur Adams draws the best monsters and creatures around, and this cover has some nice examples, not the least of which is his take on Blue-eyed Benjy!

PRINCELESS: MAKE YOURSELF #1 (Action Lab)

Writer: Jeremy Whitley
Artist/Cover: Emily Martin

unnamed (8)

On the subject of creatures, it seems as if Adrienne’s dragon Sparky has found herself in a spot of bother, based on this charming cover by Emily Martin!

Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week Soundtrack

I just got home from seeing Puscifer live at the Paramount in Huntington, New York! The show was out of this world! I was particularly surprised to hear them perform the song “Breathe” from their 2013 EP Donkey Punch the Night. Click the video so you can hear it.
