Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week 10/26/16
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!

Wow! Can we just print this, frame it, and put it up in my living room?
Ms. Marvel #12
Written by G. Willow Wilson

Cover Art by Cameron Stewart
How could you not love this beautiful and scenic cover? I really dig the orange red colors of dusk looming in on Kamala’s latest adventure.
And then there’s this stunning over by Allesandro Taini
Wow! I love the smeared colors. Is that grease paint? Pastels? Digital maybe?

Damn. Now I want to purchase a farm just so I can have somewhere to display a creepy-ass Punisher scarecrow.

Bob Reyer’s Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week
SCOOBY-DOO TEAM-UP #19 (DC)
Writer: Sholly Fisch
Artist/Cover: Dario Brizuela
WONDER WOMAN 75TH ANNIVERSARY SPECIAL (DC)
Variant Cover: Nicola Scott
I’m sure that the regular Jim Lee Cover will get most of the ink, but for my money, it doesn’t hold a candle to this stunning image by Ms. Scott!
MOON GIRL & DEVIL DINOSAUR #12 (Marvel)
Writer: Amy Reeder; Brandon Montclare
Artist: Natacha Bustos
Cover: Amy Reeder
The Devil (Dinosaur) is in in the details, they say…and what finely detailed work it is by Ms. Reeder!
MS. MARVEL #12 (Marvel)
Writer: G. Willow Wilson
Artist: Takeshi Miyagawa
Variant Cover: Joelle Jones
I’m not surprised in the least that Ms. Jones can deliver such a lovely change-of-pace as this playful piece! Check closely, as Kamala is giving a lucky kitty some embiggened belly-rubs!
BANDETTE vol. 3: HOUSE OF THE GREEN MASK (Dark Horse)
Writer: Paul Tobin
Artist/Cover: Colleen Coover
Speaking of playful, this emerald-tinged image carries all the mysterious fun that this series is famous for!
SILVER SURFER #7 (Marvel)
Writer: Dan Slott
Artist/Cover: Michael & Laura Allred
Norrin Radd definitely doesn’t have a good “poker face”, as he has an awful “tell”–you can see his cards reflected on his forehead!
Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week Soundtrack
My boss, Paul Shirey, over at Joblo.com just turned me on to this band called The Boxer Rebellion. I’ll be exploring their catalog of music over the next few days but here’s a sampling for you to check out, right now.
That’s all, folks! Join us next week for another round of covers and an avalanche of incredible cover art!
