Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week 02/05/14

Hey, thanks for checking out Talking Comics: Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week!

Each and every New Comic Book Release Day is a blessing. 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!


If you’d like to contribute to this column all you need to do is send Steve an email at, telling him the title of the issue with the cover that you dig, as well as a brief description of why you’re grooving on that particular cover. We’ll try to include as many selections as possible and hope that you enjoy seeing your choices displayed for all of the internet to see.

So without further or due let’s get this week’s selections highlighted!

Steve Seigh’s Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week

Ms. Marvel #1

Written by G. Willow Wilson

Art by Adrian Alphona

Cover by Sara Pichelli

“YES YES YES!!! Sara Pichelli is one of my favorite artists in the business and I simply love the cover she’s come up with for the debut issue of Ms. Marvel. If you’ve fished around the internet at all this past week, you’ll see that a lot of people are taking photos with the comic positioned just below their eyeline; it’s as if people are already lining up to be behind this character and what she stands for in regard to diversity in comics. It’s inspiring stuff.” – Steve Seigh

“Sara Pichelli’s cover certainly captures the idea of the youth of the new Ms. Marvel, who by most accounts is the first legacy hero based on another super-heroine. The cover is not only an homage to our young heroine’s inspiration, Captain Marvel, but to Supergirl, and the first issue cover by Gary Frank of the Peter David-written series from 1996!” – Bob Reyer

Cover for Supergirl #1 (1996)

Black Widow #3

Written by Nathan Edmondson

Art & Cover by Phil Noto

“I’ve always been aware of Phil Noto, but I would only classify myself as being a casual fan … until now. His work on Black Widow is really blowing my mind and this cover is no different.” – Steve Seigh

“Until you hear otherwise, assume that every Black Widow cover by Phil Noto will be featured on my list!  (I do apologize that there have three of them this month, though–who knew?)” – Bob Reyer

New Avengers #14

Written by Jonathan Hickman

Art & Cover by Simone Bianchi

“Good lord! Black Swan is looking pretty amazing on this cover. I haven’t had the opportunity to check out this issue yet, but I’m hoping that this cover is an indication that my favorite new character from the series, Black Swan, will be front and center.” – Steve Seigh

“I’ve been clamoring for more of the Black Swan, but based on this creepy cover by Simone Bianchi, the New Avengers  might not be as happy to see her out-and-about as I am!!” – Bob Reyer

Action Comics #28

Written by Greg Pak

Art by Aaron Kuder

Cover by Aaron Kuder and Wil Quintana

“Now THAT is Superman!” – Steve Seigh

Drumhellar #4

Written by Riley Rossmo & Alex Link

Art& Cover  by Riley Rossmo

“Um, so there’s a werewolf on the cover AND a floating fetus wearing headphones. I’m fairly certain that I don’t need to explain much further as to why this is one of the best covers of the week. Fetus + headphones = win!” – Steve Seigh

Bob Reyer’s Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week

The Movement #9

Written by Gail Simone

Art & Cover by Freddie E. Williams II

Batgirl in Coral City?!? According to the solicitation, Barbara’s in pursuit of a fugitve superhuman, and I would suggest that DC and Ms. Simone are hoping that some of Batgirl’s regular readers have come along for the ride!  Whatever the reasoning, it’s great that Mr. Williams got a crack at Ms. Simone’s other DC stalwart!” – Bob Reyer

X-Men #10.Now

Written by Brian Wood

Art by Kris Anka

Cover by Terry Dodson


“I love this image by Terry Dodson! Hopefully, the unity of prupose seen on the cover extends to the interiors, as the group has been a bit fractured of late! At the very least, let’s hope Baby Shogo can stay out of trouble!” – Bob Reyer

All-New Invaders #2

Written by James Robinson

Art by Steve Pugh

Cover by Mukesh Singh

“Wow–looking at this evocative cover by Mukesh Singh, I guess that Cap and Bucky didn’t save the day! Tanalth the Pursuer might win back her piece of the God’s Whisper after all!” – Bob Reyer

Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week Soundtrack

This list was compiled while listening to the album Helplessness Blues by the band Fleet Foxes
