Favorite Comic Book Covers of the Week 11/23/16
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
REBORN #2 (Image)
Writer: Mark Millar
Artist: Greg Capullo
Variant Cover: Kaare Andrews
The fact that the sunlight streaming into the room is white is very off-putting somehow! (That one bit of red on the EKG monitor adds a nice creepy touch, too!)
SUPERMAN #11 (DC)
Writer: Peter Tomasi; Patrick Gleason
Artist/Cover: Patrick Gleason; Mick Gray
I love the facial expressions on the “Super-Sons” !
LADY KILLER 2 #3 (Dark Horse)
Writer/Artist/Cover: Joelle Jones
“What’s black & white and red all over?” goes the old riddle…
Answers include a newspaper (it’s read all over), a nun in a blender, and a penguin at a cherry-pie eating contest.
(Considering I’m in this B & W vibe, I wonder if David Aja has any covers out this week?)
DR. STRANGE #14 (Marvel)
Writer: Jason Aaron
Artist/Cover: Chris Bachalo
“What are your plans for the evening, Doc?”
“Well, Zelma Stanton, I was thinking of having you over for dinner!”
INFAMOUS IRON MAN #2 (Marvel)
Writer: Brian Michael Bendis
Artist/Cover: Alex Maleev
“Hey tin-britches, in case you lost your watch or somethin’, lemme tell you that…
IT”S CLOBBERIN” TIME!! ”
