Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week 07/20/16

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!


Steve Seigh’s Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week

Snotgirl #1

Written by Bryan Lee O’Malley

Art and Cover by Leslie Hung


Heh. I haven’t got any clever commentary for this cover. I’m choosing to feature it here because holy hell, this is a damn good comic book! It’s by far one of the strongest openings to a comic I’ve come across this year and I urge you all to check it out.

A-Force #7

Written by Kelly Thompson

Art and Cover by Ben Caldwell


I’m not usually a fan of recommending that people visit a tanning salon, but …. well, yeah.

Lucas Stand #2

Written by Kurt Sutter – Caitlin Kittredge

Art by Jesus Hervas

Cover Art by Vanesa R Del Rey


Critic: Wow! That’s quite the cover image.

Artist: Yes, I call it “Maude’s First Demonic Breast Exam”.

Critic: Uh … huuuuuuhhhhhh ….

Lumberjanes #28

Written by Shannon Watters – Kat Leyh

Art by Ayme Sotuyo

Cover by Kat Leyh


Ahhhh, this cover sure is a sight for sore eyes during these dog days of Summer here in New York.

Bob Reyer’s Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week

VELVET #15 (Image)

Writer: Ed Brubaker
Artist/Cover: Steve Epting; Elizabeth Breitweiser


Ms. Velvet Templeton has an “I’ve had just about all I can take…” look to her countenance that seems fitting considering all that she’s been through in this marvelous series by Brubaker & Epting! Speaking of fierce looks…


Writer: James Robinson
Artist: Alex Cal; Leonard Romero
Cover: Alex Garner


This is a “Warrior Woman Specatcular” where we will learn her back-story…which must be a doozy based on that look!


Writers: Dan Abnett; Jen & Sylvia Soska
Artist: Carlo Barberi
Cover: Gary Choo

unnamed (1)

A nice group shot of this rag-tag assemblage of Guardians from across the time-lines by Mr. Choo would warrant this cover’s inclusion on my list, but as a bonus, we get a story by The Twisted Twins!


Writer: Kate Leth
Artist/Cover: Brittney Williams


With the events of CW II in mind, this cover by Ms. Williams, and particularly that “#1 Pal” button, has me more than a bit verklempt.

BETTY & VERONICA #1 (Archie)

Writer/Artist: Adam Hughes

I couldn’t select one, so for your viewing pleasure (and mine!), here are some variant covers to be on the lookout for:

Adam Hughes

Cliff Chiang

Colleen Coover
