Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week 06/08/15

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

Black Canary #12

Written by Brendan Fletcher

Art and Cover by Annie Wu


What a beautiful and fitting final cover for this band-centric superhero series! I’ve seen this pose many a time at the close of live performances I’ve been fortunate enough to attend. I love that this image reminds me of all those good times.

Detective Comics #934

Written by James Tynion IV

Art by Eddy Barrows

Cover by Eddy Barrows and Eber Ferreira


Now THIS is a family reunion! Oh, but who invited creepy Uncle Clayface? For real though, I like how striking and dangerous everyone looks on this cover. It doesn’t hurt that the book itself was mightily kick ass as well!

Lumberjanes/Gotham Academy #1 

Writer: Chynna Clugston-Flores
Artist: Rosemary Valero-O’Connell
Cover: Kelly & Nicole Matthews


We’ve been saying on the podcast for quite some time that this series gives us a Harry Potter vibe – now tell me this cover image doesn’t harken back to the halls of Hogwarts!

Incentive Virgin Variant Cover by Karl Kerschl


Kids, don’t you know that the woods around Gotham Academy are dark and full of terrors? Get back to your dorm before you get hurt!

Bob Reyer’s Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week


Writer: Genevieve Valentine
Artist: Ariel Medel
Cover: Jenny Frison


As always with Jenny Frison’s work, there’s both grace and power in her figure work, and what better character than Xena for Ms. Frison to utilize that skill upon!


Writer: Chip Zdarsky
Artist/Cover: Joe Quinones

This textless version of Joe Quinones’ cover for the story entitled “Beverly” is absolutely gorgeous, and quite touching for us long-time fans of Howard & Ms. Switzler.


Writer: Mike Johnson
Artist/Cover: Tony Shasteen

A lovely tribute to Leonard Nimoy and his portrayal of Spock through the years…this one’s for you, Melissa!


Writer: Chynna Clugston-Flores
Artist: Rosemary Valero-O’Connell
Cover: Mingjue Helen Chen

A great image by Ms. Chen that completely captures the spirit of both these wonderful books!

GRIZZLY SHARK vs. Sea Bear (Image)

If any picture is worth a thousand words, it’s this one, so I’ll just keep stumm.
