Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week 07/27/16

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

Over the Garden Wall #4

Written by Jim Campbell – Amalia Levari

Art by Jim Campbell – Cara McGee

Subscription Variant Cover by Jen Hickman


Reason #286 why you never go walking in the woods alone at dusk.

Lobster Johnson Metal Monsters of Midtown #3

Written by John Arcudi – Mike Mignola

Art and Cover by Tonci Zonjic


Who doesn’t love a good old fashioned giant robot battle? Although, I have a feeling I’d be able to take this one myself. Yeah, I totally could. I’d just pull one of those big tubes in the center of this thing’s chest and watch the oil and steam spurt out. Steve – 1 –  Robot – 0!

Action Comics #960

Written by Dan Jurgens

Art by Tyler Kirkham

Variant Cover by Ryan Sook


In a time where it feels like every other day we get a questionable Wonder Woman cover, it’s nice to see Diana battle-ready and not bent in an unfathomable condition while waiting to strike. Also, I love the reflective-nature of the sword and shield combo.

Harley Quinn #30

Written by Amanda Conner – Jimmy Palmiotti

Art by Elsa Charretier

Cover by Amanda Conner


Now that’s what I call clever orchestrated word placement!

All-New All-Different Avengers #12

Written by Mark Waid

Art by Mahmud A. Asrar

Cover by Alex Ross


So shiny, so chrome!

Carnage #10

Written by Gerry Conway

Art by Mike Perkins

Cover Art by Mike Del Mundo


Enter the vaginal vortex of Carnage! 😛

Bob Reyer’s Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week


Writer: Greg Rucka
Artist/Cover: Liam Sharp


Even though Wonder Woman needs her assistance, I don’t think that Diana is buying what The Cheetah is selling!


Writer: Cullen Bunn
Artist: Dave Acosta
Cover: Francesco Francavilla

unnamed (1)

As always, Francesco Francavilla delivers a powerful image, in this case of two properties that might only seem a natural fit through his artistry!

ROM #1 (IDW)

Writer: Chris Ryall; Christos Gage
Artist: David Messina
Variant Cover: Sal Buscema

unnamed (2)

WOW! Sturdy Sal Buscema (as Stan Lee called him!) did a ton of the early Rom books for Marvel back in the day, so it’s great that writer (and IDW big-wig) Chris Ryall had him do a cover–great work all around!


Writer: Ta-Nehisi Coates
Artist: Brian Stelfreeze
Variant Cover: Sanford Greene

unnamed (3)

A fabulous cover by PM/IF artist Sanford Greene that really tells the story of what’s happening within the pages of this great new series!


Writer: Chip Zdarsky
Artist/Cover: Joe Quinones

unnamed (4)

Nothing like a bit o’meta to make my day better! (Sorry!)


Writer: Chelsea Cain
Artist: Ibrahim Moustafa
Cover: Joelle Jones

unnamed (5)

I’d love to see Ms. Jones do a run as interior artist on this book, as her covers are killers, lady! (Sorry again…)


Writer: Amy Reeder; Brandon Montclare
Artist: Natacha Bustos
Cover: Amy Reeder

unnamed (6)

Trust your Cranky Old Uncle Bob when he tells you that these great covers by Amy Reeder are fronting a book of massive charms for all ages!

MIGHTY THOR #9 (Marvel)

Writer: Jason Aaron
Artist/Cover: Russell Dauterman

unnamed (7)

Words fail me, so I guess it’s time to go to the end theme…

Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week Soundtrack

So, as I was putting this post together, I heard this song for the first time … and fell in love with it.

Fun Fact: Emma Ruth Rundle also rocks out in the band Marriages.
