Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week 11/23/16
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
Written by Jason Latour
Art and Cover by Robbi Rodriguez
First off, here’s hoping that you all had a nice Thanksgiving:
WONDER WOMAN #11 (DC)
Writer: Greg Rucka
Artist: Liam Sharp
Variant Cover: Jenny Frison
Ms. Frison’s image beautifully conveys the utter dismay of the Amazon Princess at what stands revealed as “The Lies”!
CAPTAIN MARVEL #10 (Marvel)
Writer: Ruth Gage; Christos Gage
Artist/Cover: Kris Anka
It’s a lovely cover by the ever-reliable Kris Anka, although I wish it was for some one-off sort of battle rather than this seemingly never-ending story!
CIVIL WAR II #7 (Marvel)
Writer: Brian Michael Bendis
Artist: David Marquez
Variant Cover: Jim Steranko
Ah, for the Good Old Days, when heroes were heroes…
ULTIMATES (SQUARED) (Marvel)
Writer: Al Ewing
Artist: Travel Foreman
Variant Cover: Christian Ward
Although in this issue, I believe that we’ll see a former antagonist turned hero, so that’s positive, right?
I know that you’ll think this next bit is a shameless plug for our latest Top Shelf Book Club episode, but I swear on Stan & Jack that’s not the case, as you’ll see from how wonderful they are, as well as my comment on the final entry!
MOON GIRL & DEVIL DINOSAUR #13 (Marvel)
Writer: Amy Reeder; Brandon Montclare
Artist: Natacha Bustos
Variant “The Story So Far…” Cover: Natacha Bustos
Variant Cover: Sanford Greene
Regular Cover: Amy Reeder
A rather nice way to play catch-up on the second arc, as rendered by Ms. Bustos!
Just a girl and her T-rex spending some quality time by PM/IF’s Sanford Greene!
This adorable image by Amy Reeder is the leader-in-the-clubhouse for my “Best Cover of 2016”! (See, I told you these picks weren’t just hyperbole!)
