Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week 05/11/16
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
House of Penance #2
Written by Peter J. Tomasi
Art and Cover by Ian Bertram
I’ve heard of building atop an ancient burial ground but this is ridiculous!
Harrow County #12
Written by Cullen Bunn
Art by Hannah Christenson
Cover by Tyler Crook
I’m not quite sure why, but I’m getting a heavy Twilight Zone vibe from this cover. For real though, this cover creeps me out. I can hear the little girl’s voice inside my head, calling out, “Mommy … Mommy are you there? I’m cold, Mommy.” Ugh! No thank you!
Steve may be on this one, too…and with good reason, as it is both striking and disturbing! Speaking of things disturbing… – Bob Reyer
Grizzly Shark #2 Grizzly Shark’s Revenge
Written by Ryan Ottley
Art and Cover by Ryan Ottley – Ivan Plascencia
Just when you thought it was safe to read a comic book!
Written by Robbie Thompson
Art by Tana Ford
Cover by Yasmine Putri
It looks as though the “Spider-Women Brunch” has left Cindy with some ‘splainin’ to do, based on this cover by Yasmine Putri! – Bob Reyer
Bob Reyer’s Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week
JACKPOT #2 (After Shock)
Writer: Ray Fawkes
Artist/Cover: Marco Failla
I’m liking the “Aja-ness” of this striking cover by Marco Failla!
THE DARK & BLOODY #4 (Vertigo/DC)
Writer: Shawn Alridge
Artist/Cover: Scott Godlewski
That’s certainly not a good way to be carried across the threshold!
KINGDOM COME 20th ANNIVERSARY DELUXE EDITION HC (DC)
Writer: Mark Waid
Artist/Cover: Alex Ross
What better way to close out than with this stunning cover by the legendary Alex Ross!
