Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week 02/22/17
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!
Steve Seigh’s Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week
Loose Ends #2
Written by Jason Latour
Art and Cover by Chris Brunner – Rico Renzi
I’m really digging all the different mediums being used to create this cover. Whether it’s the “finished” look toward the bottom portion, or the scribble and scratch motif toward the top, this is good, fun stuff.
Written by Matt Owens
Art by Alec Morgan
Baby Variant Cover by Skottie Young
I will never tire of Skottie Young’s Baby Covers, this one is particularly adorable. Would you just look at that smile? She’s so proud!
Extraordinary X-Men #19
Written by Jeff Lemire
Art by Victor Ibanez
Incentive Cover by Ben Caldwell
Is it just me or is this cover crooked? Regardless, I really love the colors and character designs here.
Written by Pamela Ribon
Art by Veronica Fish
Incentive Cover by Audrey Mok
If you’re not reading SLAM, you really should be. This is a wonderful series (which features a fantastic cover) about friendship, dedication, and smashing through insecurities.
Bob Reyer’s Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week
SCARLET WITCH #15 (Marvel)

I have to admit to trade-waiting on this series; not because I haven’t loved what I’ve read, but because I’m hoping there’ll be a “Cover Gallery” featuring the variants!

Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week Soundtrack
This week’s track comes from the band Lemuria. I just discovered their sound last week and I’m really digging it. I might even pony up the dough for an album or two in the coming days. Check them out and enjoy!
That’s all, folks! Join us next week for another round of covers and an avalanche of incredible cover art!
