Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week 07/06/16
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!

Ah, it’s been a while since I’ve seen any new art from one of my favorite creators, Tim Sale. Dude’s still got it!

Cover Art by Jenny Frisson
Um, yeah, I’m sorry little girl, but if I saw those things marching toward me I would not be very quiet when screaming my face off. Good on you for being super brave about it, though.
Civil War II Kingpin #1
Written by Matthew Rosenberg
Art by Ricardo Lopez Ortiz
Variant Cover Art by Esad Ribic
Ever since Netflix’s Daredevil Season 1, I’ve been intrigued by Kingpin as a villain, and I love this rendition of him.

Bob Reyer’s Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week
BATMAN ’66 MEETS STEED & MRS. PEEL #1 (DC)
Writer: Ian Edginton
Artist: Matthew Dow Smith
Cover: Michael Allred
Leave it to Michael Allred to perfectly capture the right notes for this very-high-concept mini-series! For those who don’t remember (and those of us who do!), the chessboard setting is an homage to the opening that the American ABC television network had grafted onto each episode to serve as an introduction to the values of this quirky and charming series, which you can watch below:
SILVER SURFER #5 (Marvel)
Writer: Dan Slott
Artist/Cover: Michael & Laura Allred
While I’m on the the Allred track, I sure hope that there’s a guide to who Mike & Laura have drawn on this cover!
SWITCH #4 (Image)
Writer/Artist/Cover: Stjepan Sejic
As always, beyond how amazing this cover is in the over-all sense, it’s the subtleties in the facial expressions that Mr. Sejic creates that mark his work as truly special!
SCARLET WITCH #8 (Marvel)
Writer: James Robinson
Artist: Tula Lotay
Cover: David Aja
David Aja’s run of stellar covers continues–’nuff said!
