Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week 02/08/17
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
EMPOWERED AND THE SOLDIER OF LOVE #1 (Dark Horse)
Writer: Adam Warren
Artist/Cover: Karla Diaz
I think that Dr. Mara will get a kick out of this cover, as American manga veteran Adam Warren (“Dirty Pair”) takes a crack at the “magical princess” genre, with series artist Karla Diaz capturing a lot of the tropes on this fun cover!
WONDER WOMAN #16 (DC)
Writer: Greg Rucka
Artist/Cover: Bilquis Evely
It will be impossible to replace the amazing Nicola Scott on this book, but Ms. Evely did fine work at Dynamite on titles as varied as Shaft and Red Sonja, and this cover certainly hints at some great things to come!
POWER MAN & IRON FIST #13 (Marvel)
Writer: David F. Walker
Artist: Elmo Bondas
Cover: Sanford Greene
It seems as if Luke isn’t taking too kindly to the events over in the Jessica Jones solo book, now does it?
MS. MARVEL #15 (Marvel)
Writer: G. Willow Wilson
Cover Nelson Blake II
This old a video game looks as if it would be more my speed than Kamala’s, but I know that she’ll do fine!
UNBEATABLE SQUIRREL GIRL #17 ( Marvel)
Writer: Ryan North
Artist/Cover: Erica Henderson
If you’re going to do an homage, why not go back almost to the beginning! From 1939:
