Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week 09/14/16
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!

What better way to lead off than this beautiful cover!
LADY KILLER 2 #2 (Dark Horse)

It’s always such a chore cleaning up under the sink, don’t you agree?
Speaking of Ms. Joelle Jones…
MOCKINGBIRD #7 (MARVEL)
Writer: Chelsea Cain

As she’s passing through the Bermuda Triangle, perhaps Bobbi can drop in and visit Josie Schuller’s 1960’s Cocoa Beach home?

The only thing keeping from howling in outrage from not seeing a Joelle Jones cover to this issue is the utter perfection of David Aja’s!

Variant Cover: Fiona Staples
Superbly creepy work by Ms. Staples–check out “giant” Maps peering around the corner of the set!
SUPERWOMAN #2 (DC)

This disturbing image better not presage what I think it does, or I’m going to be very cranky on next week’s show, is all I’m sayin’ !
RICHARD MATHESON, MASTER OF TERROR GN COLLECTION (IDW)
Cover: Sam Shearon
More creepiness on this cover by Sam Shearon, incorporating images from some of Mr. Matheson’s most noted works such as “Hell House”, “Duel”, “The Shrinking Man”, and “I Am Legend”, stories that are all contained within!
Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week Soundtrack
What I have for you this week is a beautiful cover of the song “Ain’t No Sunshine” as performed by the band Rituals of Mine (formally known as Sister Crayon). Originally written by the musical artist Bill Withers, this haunting rendition will get into your bones.
That’s all, folks! Join us next week for another round of covers and an avalanche of incredible cover art!
