Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week: 3/14/12

A weekly column by Steve Seigh

Welcome to Talking Comics’ Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week! What we have here is all pretty self explanatory. Each week I’m going to reflect on the cover art of some of our favorite new comics and tell you which ones I really dig. Simple. Clean. Artsy. Enjoy!

* Oh yeah, ignore those horrible ad bars on the top of the DC covers. I know they’ve got to promote their online features but that shit is just an eye sore.
