Weekly Top 10 Comic Book Covers – Week 5/20/2015


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.

There definitely wasn’t a shortage of amazing artwork this week and I had an immensely difficult time narrowing down my search to just 10 covers.  I also felt that I shouldn’t let any one publisher runaway with the list.  However after much internal debate with me, myself, and I, I think that I’ve accomplished this weeks task.  First off A-Force is a new series my Marvel and with that came a barrage of varying artist covers.  Most were pretty darn good and that usually doesn’t happen from a big publisher.  Stephanie Hans variant cover was simply amazing prompting me to create a folder for her artwork up on Pinterest: Stephany Hans.  Jim Cheung was up next with his regular cover and I found it fascinating to see so many characters.  I mean yes we have seen many variations of covers with a bunch of characters on it but he melded together in great detail each one clearly in that they are easily identifiable, so yeah, damn good job!

Now Dustin is a pretty hot artist right now but I just found his Archie vs. Predator cover humorous.  Not to mention it’s about Archie and his buddies against one of the most cunning and vicious hunters in the known universe.  Next Deadpool has a new series called Deadpool’s Secret Secret Wars and yeah I’m gonna read it and yeah he is dead but hey, I love Deadpool.  Skottie Young hasn’t made the list in a while but I couldn’t pass this one up, Hulk and Black Widows faces are just too damn funny.  LaRosa’s Ninjax cover is badass and the blobs of blood only add to the oozing affect of badass-ness extruding from the front cover, go buy it!

Michael Del Mundo’s Planet Hulk cover had great imaginative artistry going, love the fist intertwined with smaller fists.  Jae Lee had a bunch of covers out this week, along with Francesco Francavilla but his Re-Animator #1 was by far the best.  Jay Anacleto created a work of art for Red Sonja Vultures Circle #4.  It almost looks like something you would find in an art museum.  Jenny Frison did an amazing job on her rendition of Vampirella, the colorist should get some credit as well.  It really brought that cover to life.  Finally Steve Epting’s Winter World Frozen Fleet new series cover had life to it.  I may need to pick up this second arc.

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