Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week 07/13/16

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!

I can’t help but think of the song, “Sandstorm Woman” by my friends, Sleepy Sun, when I see this cover.

House of Penance #4

How delightfully creepy! And for real, I can’t be the only on who gets a Tool/Alex Grey vibe from this artwork.

Fresh, bold, beautiful, and vibrant! What more could you want in a new Super-Man cover?

Nice! Love that smirk, the smattering of rain, and the way that electric lights up the night.

Ha ha ha! Nope! There’s no way I’m traveling to a planet made from the bones of the dead. I’ve seen that movie and I know what happens to the out of shape runt of the group!

My hope is that E.T. is at the top of that pile, armed with a rocket launcher!

Artist: Sergio Davila

Mark Schultz was the writer & artist behind the amazing Xenozoic Tales aka Cadillacs & Dinosaurs, and is the current writer (and former artist) of the comic strip classic, Prince Valiant, so this cover is right in his wheel-house!

The “Year One” story-arc is off to a fantastic start through this beautiful cover by the amazing Ms. Nicola Scott!

INSEXTS #6 (After Shock Comics)

It looks as if the Lady Beltram and Mariah have met their match!

SABRINA #6 (Archie)

Andrew Pepoy delivers a chilling first-person (first-cat?) cover that gives us a “Salem’s-eye-view” at some scary goings-on!

Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week Soundtrack

Aw yeah, I’ve been listening to this band real hard ever since I discovered that they released another album … last year. Yeah, usually I’m all up to date with this stuff, but somehow “Salome” passed me by. I’ve pretty much been leaving it on repeat for the past week or so.

That’s all, folks! Join us next week for another round of covers and an avalanche of incredible cover art!
