Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week 06/01/15
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
Moon Knight #3
Written by Jeff Lemire
Art and Cover by Greg Smallwood
As I’ve stated many times in article’s past, sometimes a simple design can go a long way. I like the minimalist but stark presentation of this image.
Written by Gerry Duggan – Various
Art by Mike Hawthorne
Cover by David Nakayama
Survivor’s Club #9
Written by Lauren Beukes – Sale Halvorsen
Art by Ryan Kelly
Cover by Bill Sienkiewicz
How hauntingly gorgeous is this cover? I love the burnt, almost rusted browns that appear to be corroding this beautiful image.
Bob Reyer’s Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week
LEGENDS 30TH ANNIVERSARY TPB (DC)
Writer: John Ostrander; Len Wein
Artist/Cover: John Byrne
Excepting commissions, we don’t get to see any new art from John Byrne, so having a chance to revisit this classic cover is a real treat!
AMAZING FOREST #6 (IDW)
Writer: Ulises Farinas; Erick Farinas
Artist: Mike Presatto; Various
Cover: Ulises Farinas
This cover by Ulises Farinas can be read many ways, but I’m getting the impression that the young lady doesn’t seem too thrilled about being sealed into a robot!
DEADPOOL #13 (Marvel)
Writer: Gerry Duggan; David F. Walker; Charles Soule
Artist: Scott Koblish
Variant Cover: Ron Lim
Love the cover, hate the $8.99 cover price! (Yes, I know it’s an over-sized issue, but still…)
SPIDER-WOMEN: OMEGA (Marvel)
Writer: Dennis Hopeless; Jason Latour; Robbie Thompson
Artist: Nico Leon
Cover: Yasmine Putri
A powerful cover by Ms. Putri, one most evocative of the nefarious force behind the inter-dimensional troubles of our heroes!
Hold it…I feel my spider-sense tingling…
SPIDER-WOMAN #8 (Marvel)
Writer: Dennis Hopeless
Artist/Cover: Javier Rodriguez
I really don’t need to say anything, do I?
GIANT DAYS #15 (BOOM! Studios)
Writer: John Allison
Artist: Max Sarin
Cover: Lisa Treiman
“All right, Mr. DeMille, I’m ready for my close-up!”
