Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week 12/21/16
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!
Steve Seigh’s Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week
Locke & Key: Small World
Written by Joe Hill
Art by Gabriel Rodriguez – Jay Fotos
Subscription Cover by Charles Paul Wilson III
It’s back! It’s back! It’s back!
Invincible Iron Man #2
Written by Brian Michael Bendis
Art and Cover by Stefano Caselli
Awwww yeah, how could I not include this sweet Monn Girl-inspired cover?
Harley Quinn #1
Written by Amanda Conner – Jimmy Palmiotti
Art by Chad Hardin
Cover Art by Jae Lee
Who doesn’t love an homage to the world-famous Coppetone baby?
Written by Nicole Perlman
Art by Marco Checchetto
Incentive Cover by Tula Lotay
Oh man, I love Lotay’s style so much. There’ almost this sort of “buzz” or hum” to the motion of her lines. It brings everything to life.
Written by Pamela Ribon
Art by Veronica Fish
Natacha Bustos Virgin Variant Cover
I can’t hear the title of this comic without Onyx’s “Slam!” popping into my head.
Jem and the Misfits #1
Written by Kelly Thompson
Art by Jenn St Onge
Incentive Cover by George Caltssoudas
And then there’s this gorgeous cover by Pascal Campion XCI
Bob Reyer’s Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week
SPIDER-GWEN #15 (Marvel)
Writer: Jason Latour
Artist/Cover: Robbi Rodriguez
A stunning and to-the-story cover by the singular Mr. Rodriguez!
SILVER SURFER #8 (Marvel)
Writer: Dan Slott
Artist/Cover: Michael & Laura Allred
A word of advice: try not to over-eat during the holidays!
HARLEY QUINN # 10 (DC)
Writer: Amanda Conner; Jimmy Palmiotti
Artist: Moritat; Bret Blevins; Joseph Michael Lisner
Cover: Amanda Conner
Based on the look on Batman’s face, I’d say that he has Harley on his “Naughty” list!
ULTIMATES 2 #2 (Marvel)
Writer: Al Ewing
Artist: Travel Foreman
Cover: Christian Ward
Variant Cover: Marco Rudy
I couldn’t decide between these two striking images, so…
DOCTOR STRANGE #15 (Marvel)
Writer: Jason Aaron
Artist/Cover: Chris Bachalo
“I’ve got my eye on you!”
MIGHTY CAPTAIN MARVEL #0 (Marvel)
Writer: Margaret Stohl
Artist: Ramon Rosanas
Cover: Elizabeth Torque
This affecting image by Ms. Torque suggests that Carol has perhaps taken to heart those hard lessons learned during the super-hero Civil War!
POWER MAN & IRON FIST ANNUAL #1 (Marvel)
Writer: David F. Walker
Artist: Scott Hepburn
Variant Cover: Trevor Von Eeden
Luke and Danny sharing a “Sweet Christmas” moment–I’m in!
