Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week 11/26/14

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

Each and every New Comic Book Release Day is something to be excited about. 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

Madman In Your Face 3D Special

Created, written, and illustrated by Michael Allred

Colors by Laura Allred

3D Process by Christian LeBlanc

“Madman is back, y’all! Holy cow! This cover is already vibrant and beautiful, but add a pair of 3D glasses to the mix and WOW – you’ve got my favorite cover of the week!” – Steve Seigh

ODY-C #1

Written by Matt Fraction

Art & Cover by Christian Ward

Think for yourself

Question authority

Throughout human history, as our species has faced the frightening, terrorizing fact that we do not know who we are, or where we are going in this ocean of chaos, it has been the authorities, the political, the religious, the educational authorities who attempted to comfort us by giving us order, rules, regulations, informing, forming in our minds their view of reality. To think for yourself you must question authority and learn how to put yourself in a state of vulnerable, open-mindedness; chaotic, confused, vulnerability to inform yourself.

Think for yourself.
Question authority.” – Timothy Leary

Catwoman #36

Written by Genevieve Valentine

Art by Garry Brown

Cover by Jae Lee & June Chung

“Look at that letter placement, the gorgeous shading, and delicate line placement. It looks to me like Catwoman is clawing her way back from dark times and I couldn’t be happier. Sexy, stylish, and dangerous. That’s how I like Selina.” – Steve Seigh

Pop #4

Written by Curt Pires

Art by Jason Copland

Cover by Dylan Todd

“Nice! I’m just going to pretend that the corporate fat cat on this cover was inspired by characters featured in the Parabol/Parabola” video. I’m just going to post the video below so that you can check it out and be the judge.” – Steve Seigh

Secret Avengers #10

Written by Ales Kot

Art by Michael Walsh

Cover by Tradd Moore and Matthew Wilson

“It’s a classic Marvel standoff and there’s no telling who will still be left alive after one of these characters makes a move. Not only am I enjoying the hard rain featured on this cover, but I also like how deadly serious it is for a book that is anything but. For real, if you haven’t been reading this book, I highly recommend it. It’s like The Superior Foes of Spider-Man, only it’s the Avengers. Good stuff!” – Steve Seigh

Bob Reyer’s Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week


Writer: Ray Fawkes

Artist/Cover: Ben Templesmith

“This Ben Templesmith cover seems to place this as more a Vertigo book than a mainstream DC title, but with Jim Corrigan as the lead, it strides between two worlds in more ways than one!” – Bob Reyer

JUSTICE, INC. #4 (Dynamite)

Writer: Michael Uslan

Artist: Giovanni Timpano

Cover: Alex Ross

“Sadly, the series hasn’t lived up to these amazing Alex Ross covers, perhaps this fourth issue will change this old pulp heroes fan’s mind?” – Bob Reyer


Writer: Kate Leth

Artist: Drew Rausch

Cover: Kevin Wada

“I’ve loved every one of Kevin Wada’s covers on She-Hulk, so when I saw this book in the queue, my eyes just ran to it! Just as in Tim Burton’s classic film, it’s whimsical, but with just a hint of real terror!” – Bob Reyer


Writer: James Robinson

Artist: Steve Pugh

Cover: Michael Komarck

“WOW–World War I super-heroes crossed with H/ G. Wells’ invading Martians? Count me in –twice-fold!!” – Bob Reyer

…and just because…


Writer/Artist/Cover: Stephen Collins

Here’s the solicitation:

A book for anyone who has ever had a beard (or seen one). On the island of Here, livin’s easy. Conduct is orderly. Lawns are neat. Citizens are clean shaven – and Dave is the most fastidious of them all. Dave is bald, but for a single hair. He loves drawing, his desk job, and The Bangles. But on one fateful day, his life is upended by an unstoppable (yet pretty impressive) beard. An off-beat fable worthy of Roald Dahl and Tim Burton, The Gigantic Beard That Was Evil is a darkly funny meditation on life, death, and what it means to be different – and a timeless ode to the art of beard maintenance.

Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week Soundtrack

This week’s track is entitled “Y-Control” which hails from the album “Fever To Tell” by the band Yeah Yeah Yeahs.

That’s all, folks! Join us next week for another round of covers and an avalanche of incredible cover art!
