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.

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

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!

CONAN THE SLAYER #1 (Dark Horse)
Writer: Cullen Bunn
Artist: Sergio Davila
Variant Cover: Mark Schultz
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!
WONDER WOMAN #2 (DC)
Writer: Greg Rucka

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)
Writer: Marguerite Bennett
Artist/Cover: Ariela Kristantina
It looks as if the Lady Beltram and Mariah have met their match!
SABRINA #6 (Archie)
Writer: Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa
Artist: Robert Hack
Cover: Andrew Pepoy
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!
