Weekly Top 10 Comic Book Covers – Week 5/6/2015

Here are my personal choices for this weeks top 10 comic book covers.  These covers got my attention and whether being good or not, are deserving of your attention as well.

A new series out this past week is named Arcadia and the retailer incentive virgin variant by Scott Pfeiffer stood out amongst the rest of the group simply because of the shear detail that went into creating the landscape and our bedridden patient.  Just so many beautiful lines.  Next we have a Peter Bergting cover for issue #1 of Baltimore Cult Of The Red King.  Another cover that made my list is part of the Convergence event and yes, it’s the Harley Quinn cover.  I chose it because of the unique pastel colors and the somewhat HDR feel it offers.

A new series out this week is Dead Drop and I plan on reading it as well.  Great character detail, especially in Archer.  Another Emanuela Lupacchino cover this week from the John Carter series, so beautifully drawn that I couldn’t pass up.   Finally Amy Reeder’s awesome series Rocket Girl has landed itself back on the grid.  I’m not really sure why after issue 5 it took so dang long for issue 6 to publish.  I know that all my preorders of this series past 5 were canceled by Midtown Comics and months later I had to preorder the same covers again so if anyone know please enlighten me on the status of the group.

I really want to follow Secret Wars but with all the tie-ins and offshoots I’m hesitant to even try.  Doesn’t stop me from qualifying the new issue drawn by none other than Alex Ross.  Jim Cheung also contributes to the event depicting two factions.  Been a while since our next artist made the list but I did enjoy Skottie Young’s cover for the Secret Wars event, very cute.  Finally we have a beautifully drawn celebration of Wonder Woman from the 70’s that includes the woman that played her in the original TV series, Lynda Carter.  Check out the Wiki Site describing the TV Series, made it for 3 seasons.

Any ways, that’s this weeks top 10.  If you plan on searching for any of the rare ones good luck and happy hunting!
