Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week 06/22/16
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!

Who doesn’t love a send-up to the greatest Daffy Duck cartoon ever produced, “Duck Amuck”?

Awww yeah! Would yo believe that I still have my vintage Madball collection? Those things were like the Garbage Pail Kids of baseball.
Bob Reyer’s Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week
Pretty Deadly #10
Writer: Kelly Sue DeConnick
Artist/Cover: Emma Rios
Unfailingly, Ms. Emma Rios brings an graceful moodiness to light on the fabulous covers for this remarkable series!
BITCH PLANET #8 (Image)
Writer: Kelly Sue DeConnick
Artist/Cover: Valentine De Landro
As long as I’m in “Kelly Sue mode”, this image by Val De Landro is quite sadly appropriate considering the current political climate in the U.S.!
RED SONJA #6 (Dynamite)
Writer: Marguerite Bennett
Cover: Marguerite Sauvage
I’d love to find this cover by Ms. Sauvage as a print to hang on the wall!
MOON GIRL & DEVIL DINOSAUR #9 (Marvel)
Writer: Amy Reeder; Brandon Montclare
Artist: Flaviano Armentaro
Cover: Amy Reeder
“Lunella on a Rampage” (she and Devil have switched brains) reminds me so much of the scene in “Lilo & Stitch”where Stitch wrecks a toy city, I wonder if that bit struck Amy Reeder as well? (Hey, troops–the first trade of MG & DD comes out this week, too!)
SCARLET WITCH #9 (Marvel)
Writer: James Robinson
Artist: Annie Wu
Cover: David Aja
Variant “Classic” Cover: June Brigman
Variant “Story Thus Far” Cover: Nimit Malavia
I couldn’t choose one, so…”Triple play”!
