Top 10 Comic Book Covers – Week 9/17/2014
Here are my choices for top comic book covers. As always there are way to many to pick from but these definitely got my attention!
Hellboy, B.P.R.D., and  series have all been a favorite of mine. Something about this alternative paranormal world where large creatures to cursed frogs seem to find their way through the cracks causing havoc amongst the general population. Only the members of the B.P.R.D. can stand in their way and even though this is issue 123 I still find each story refreshingly entertaining. No matter who you are this series should be on everyone’s reading list at some point in their lives.
Menton3 is a fascinating artist that can conjure up some of the most creatively covers. They can be grim at times although the X-Files cover that made the list seems ominous with the graceful light shinning down. As for this weeks Edge of Spider-Verse issue, Robbi Rodriguez’s cover was very simplistic and clean with good use of colors making that issue pop. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles…heroes in a half shell, turtle power! I mean…if you know it, sing it. If only I had jumped on the bandwagon for IDW’s reboot of the green guys…
Swords seem to be the theme for two other covers that made the list. First off is Deadly Class #7, another amazing series by writer Rick Remender. The writing rocks, killers in training make up the student body, and the story is set in the 80s. What more could you want?!?!? The second cover Clone just stood out. I’m amazed we’ve reached issue #20 with full steam ahead. It’s a unique take on sci-fi dealing with the cloning conundrum.
Can’t forget the unforgettable Deadpool, yes the merc with a mouth. Deadpool mania has hit the Marvel universe hard and it doesn’t look like he’s leaving mainstream comics anytime soon.
