Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week 05/18/16
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
Wonder Woman #52

Art by Miguel Mendonca
Cover by Yanick Paquette
Even the weight of the world can’t stop the might and determination of Wonder Woman!
Written by Jeremy Haun – Jason A. Hurley
Art by Mike Huddleston
Cover by Brett Weldele
Oh hey! I know some people like it rough but maybe this is a bit much?
Citizen Jack #6
Written by Sam Humphries
Art by Tommy Patterson
Cover by Ryan Stegman
Wait … is that Donald Trump? It might as well be, amiright?
Disney Kingdoms: Haunted Mansion #3
Written by Joshua Williamson
Art by Jorge Coehlo
Cover by EM Gist
Ah, this cover brings me back to all the times I rode The Haunted Mansion at Disney. The ballroom scene is actually my favorite part of the ride.
Old Man Logan #6
Written by Jeff Lemire
Art by Andrea Sorrentino
Cover by Andrea Sorrentino – Marcelo Maiolo
Black, white, and blood red is a mighty find combination when creating comic book covers that are also true works of art. Nice job, Andrea!
Bob Reyer’s Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week
FUTURE QUEST #1 (DC)
Writer: Jeff Parker
Artist/Cover: Evan Shaner
It’s as if it were a Saturday morning in 1968 all over again, thanks to this gorgeous wrap-around cover featuring Hanna-Barbera’s animated heroes of that vintage by Evan “Doc” Shaner!
LEGEND OF WONDER WOMAN #6 (DC)
Writer/Artist/Cover; Renae De Liz
When the story’s done properly, as it is here, Diana is a “warrior for peace”, and it looks as if she’s made her way to the front lines!
CLEAN ROOM #8 (DC)
Writer: Gail Simone
Artist: Jon Davis-Hunt
Cover: Jenny Frison
Charlie’s Angels they ain’t–more like Astrid’s Assassins, if you ask me!
POWER MAN & IRON FIST #4 (Marvel)
Writer: David F. Walker
Artist/Cover: Sanford Greene
Maybe if the boys had given their Office Manager Jennie Ross that Friday off, this melee wouldn’t be happening now? (Is that a Pizza Dog cameo, by the way?)
SILVER SURFER #4 (Marvel)
Writer: Dan Slott
Artist/Cover: Michael & Laura Allred
The Allreds never fail to deliver a cover that strikes a chord or touches the funny bone, and never more so than with this image that does both!
SPIDER-WOMAN #7 (Marvel)
Writer: Dennis Hopeless
Artist: Javier Rodriguez
Cover: Yasmine Putri
Here’s another cover that’s guaranteed to provoke a smile, as Jessica has returned to find an odd babysitter–you know how odd if you’ve been reading this fun cross-over event!
CHILLING ADVENTURES OF SABRINA #5 (Archie)
Writer: Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa
Artist/Variant Cover: Robert Hack
I’ll believe this issue is actually coming out when I hold it in my hands, but in the meantime, I’ll revel in the fun of this homage to the graphic novel adaptation of “Creepshow”, which can be seen below:
