Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week 09/21/16
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!

GREEN LANTERNS #7 (DC)

I loved Ms, Lupacchino’s work on Starfire, so this playful cover is a natural for me to include!

With a cast of characters including so many of IDW’s licensed properties, who better to bring them all to life than the legendary John Byrne?
