Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week 08/10/16
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!

Bob Reyer’s Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week
SUPERWOMAN #1 (DC)

Of all the new DC series except one, this series by Phil Jimenez was the new DC that I most looked forward to seeing! Speaking of that exception…
WONDER WOMAN #4 (DC)

Ms. Nicola Scott delivers another powerful yet graceful image of a character that she was born to draw!
LONE RANGER.GREEN HORNET #2 (Dynamite)
Writer: Michael Uslan

Similarly, this image by Jan Duursema (the first woman to draw Wonder Woman in her solo series!) captures the impact of these iconic radio characters.

ANAD AVENGERS ANNUAL #1 (Marvel)

Kamala doing a “Lucy Van Pelt” football thing on Good Ol’ Miles Morales is hilarious!

Thanks to the artistry of Mr. Aja, this might be the first time that I don’t mind seeing “Civil War” slathered on the cover of a book that I’m buying!
LUMBERJANES/GOTHAM ACADEMY #3 (Boom/DC)
Writer: Chynna Clugston-Flores
Artist: Rosemary Valero-O’Connell; Maddi Gonzalez
Cover: Natacha Bustos
I love the “Uh-oh…” vibe of this cover by Natacha Bustos, who does such a fabulous job on the interior art of one of my favorite books Moon Girl & Devil Dinosaur–which if you’re not buying, you should be, take it from your Cranky Old Uncle Bob…and Dr. Mara, too!
