Here are my top 10 eye catching comic book cover choices for this week.  It’s been a few weeks since my last posting simply because as a father time simply slips by faster than you can grab a hold of it.  I had to attend many softball games and practices for my daughter and they all paid off, she won the local championships in her league!  Any ways, as I melt here in our heat wave with frozen grapes in hand, I unfortunately had a hard time finding covers this week.  I even picked a cover I usually don’t pick, a Grimm Fairy Tales simply because Alfredo Reyes did a phenomenal job of the woman figure.  If you feel the need to share your thoughts concerning my choices please do and I hope to see you back here next week for another edition of the top 10!

#Comic Book Update – Weekly Top 10 Covers 5.3.2017

 

Here are my top 10 eye catching comic book cover choices for this week.  Who’s excited for Guardians of the Galaxy 2?!?!  I AM!  Gonna spend the cash for the 3D version of the movie this weekend with the wife.  Should be a fun date night.  As for covers this week, not so fun, what’s up with the Indie comics and nude covers, been quite a few past couple of weeks.  However I did break down and selected a non-nude but risque photo one I found rather funny and the artwork was well drawn.   That being Cavewoman Destination Jungle #1 variant by Dean Yeagle.  A favorite artist of mine Juan Ferreyra has a regular cover out for Green Arrow Vol 7 #22.  I discovered his artwork back in 2015 when he was working on the Colder series released by Dark Horse Comics.  That is another series you all should read up on, fabulous story and off the hook art that really brings the story alive.  However, the one that takes the cake this week is a remastered cover Jean Grey #1 Incentive Dave Cockrum Remastered Variant that is currently priced up on Midtown Comics website for over 1K.  So if your comic book collection is in need of a 1K cover then please don’t hesitate and go jump on over to Midtown before it’s too late.  If you feel the need to share your thoughts concerning my choices please do and I hope to see you back here next week for another edition of the top 10!

#Comic Book Update – Weekly Top 10 Covers 4.26.2017

 

Here are my top 10 eye catching comic book cover choices for this week.  To be quite honest this weeks lot of catchy covers was quite thin even though the weeks releases were numerous.  A lot of #1’s in the indie sections populated this release and like all #1’s came the dumping ground for multiple cover versions for each of those releases.  After digging through all the crap I was able to finally get my 10, though it did prove difficult at times.  I think Namwolf #1 by Logan Faerber was by far a standout with it’s ingenious use of the cover space.  I also loved Jin Kim’s variant for Optimus Prime #6, nothing like seeing amazing G1 style work. If you feel the need to share your thoughts concerning my choices please do and I hope to see you back here next week for another edition of the top 10!

Top 10 List (Alphabetical Order…)

  • Batgirl Vol 5 #10 Variant Francis Manapul

#Comic Book Update – Weekly Top 10 Covers 4.19.2017

 

Here are my top 10 eye catching comic book cover choices for this week.   Right off the bat you know that the talent of Jae Lee resonates with another rendition of  Jim Henson’s Power Of The Dark Crystal #2.  The fact that it was done in virgin variant form makes me almost want to buy it if I had the money on hand.  His ability to command the pencil simply amazes me and the use of color only adds to the affect.  Another seasoned veteran released a cover for Wild Storm #3, yes you know it, Jim Lee.  Another amazing artist that seems to only put out amazing pieces regardless if it’s a regular cover or some rarity for $1000 bucks. If you feel the need to share your thoughts concerning my choices please do and I hope to see you back here next week for another edition of the top 10!

#Comic Book Update – Weekly Top 10 Covers 4.5.2017

 

Here are my top 10 eye catching comic book cover choices for this week.   As you can see another set of Venomized covers are out this week and I personally thought the All-New Wolverine #19 Incentive Francesco Mattina Venomized Black & White variant cover was drop jaw insane!  However it isn’t cheap so if you want to purchase it you’ll need to drop a rather large amount for this insanely detailed cover.  As for the rest of the selections David Mack’s increase use of color really made this weeks Jessica Jones cover pop.  Finally Stephen Segavio’s intricate work on the duo Mr. J and Harley Quinn made this weeks Injustice Gods Among Us Ground Zero cover really stand out from the rest.  If you feel the need to share your thoughts concerning my choices please do and I hope to see you back here next week for another edition of the top 10!
