Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week 05/04/16

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

A-Force #5

Written by G. Willow Wilson – Kelly Thompson

Art by Jorge Molina

Cover by Ben Caldwell


Oh wow! I’ll be honest, as much as I love Jorge Molina’s art, I wouldn’t mind having Ben Caldwell appear as an guest-artist for an issue of A-Force. What a fun and expressive cover!

Revival #39

Written by Tim Seeley

Art by Mike Norton

Cover by Jenny Frisson


The covers to this series are  often times gorgeous works of art, with this one being no exception. I love the soft colors and Japanese samurai influence.


Black Widow #3

Written by Mark Waid – Chris Samnee

Art and Cover by Chris Samnee


Ha! There’s no way that Natasha could ever be mistaken for just another “paper doll” agent. I love this image of her breaking away from the repetitive norm.

Spider-Gwen #8

Written by Jason Latour

Art by Bengal

Cover by Robbie Rodriguez


Sometimes the style of a cover is enough. Love the look and angular vibe of this cover.

Bob Reyer’s Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week


Writer: Sholly Fisch
Artist/Cover: Dario Brizuela


This is a “Marvel-ous” idea (sorry) for a team-up, as the tone of the classic Captain Marvel series is a perfect fit with the Scooby Gang, as this cover image makes clear!

MISS FURY #2 (Dynamite)

Writer: Corinna Bechko
Artist: Jonathan Lau
Cover: Tula Lotay

unnamed (1)

I’m always a sucker for homages, and as this one references the work of Tarpe Mills…

Speaking of homages…

SPIDER-GWEN #8 (Marvel)

Writer: Jason Latour
Artist: Bengal
Cover: Yasmine Putri

unnamed (3)

Ms. Putri has gone w-a-a-a-y back with her “Spider-Gwen No More!” tribute to the final page of Spider-Man #50 by John Romita, Sr.:

BLACK WIDOW #3 (Marvel)

Writer: Chris Samnee; Mark Waid
Artist: Chris Samnee
Variant Cover: Joelle Jones

unnamed (5)

I don’t know why I never thought of this before, but I’d love to see Ms. Joelle (Lady Killer) Jones do a series featuring Natasha!


Writer: Chip Zdarsky
Artist/Cover: Kevin Maguire

unnamed (6)

Kevin Maguire’s been a favorite since the JLA days, and it’s clear that he hasn’t lost his touch for combining action with humour!


Writer: James Robinson
Artist: Marguerite Sauvage
Cover: David Aja

unnamed (7)

As Steve often points out, the black, red, and white combo is a classic, and Mr. Aja certainly has created a striking image in that vein!
