Best Comic Book Covers of the Week: 1/31/14

What covers blew our shoes off, so we had to walk around shoeless, in the snow?

It's time to see what the Comic Vine staff thought were the coolest and most amazing covers of the week! Last week was a monster of a week because we couldn't decide on a limited amount of cool covers, so we threw most of them in. This week, we're back to normal and found a small handful of covers we really loved. Let's get down to business!

AQUAMAN #27 by Paul Pelletier and Sean Parsons

First up, this week, we have AQUAMAN #27 by Paul Pelletier and Sean Parsons. We love how this cover show the size difference between Aquaman and the Karaqan. Aquaman is engulfed by this beast, with the city in the background.

BLACK SCIENCE #3 by Matteo Scalera & Dean White

Next, we have BLACK SCIENCE #3 by Matteo Scalera and Dean White. Sure, a portion of this cover is taken up by the title banner on the left, but Scalera's art is immensely beautiful to look at and his covers for this series have been incredibly intriguing. There's a lot packed into this small area, so you can spend a lot more time finding little things to stare at on this cover.

GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY #11 by Dale Keown & Jason Keith

Here we have GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY #11 by Dale Keown and Jason Keith. GotG had a few covers this week, but this one came off as the coolest one for us. The shading and colors look fantastic here, thanks to Keith's colors. And who doesn't enjoy a screaming Rocket Raccoon on their cover?

THOR: GOD OF THUNDER #18 by Esad Ribic

Up next is THOR: GOD OF THUNDER #18 by Esad Ribic. The only way to describe Ribic's art here is "epic." Every month, this artist puts out some phenomenal covers. The shading and color blending are really cool and we love how this cover makes you feel like you're right there, in this moment.

CLONE #14 by Juan Jose Ryp

Lastly, we have CLONE #14 by Juan Jose Ryp. CLONE has a lot of very interesting covers. Ryp does some extremely cool things with them. Here, we see the female clones, and what's interesting to look at are the subtle differences in the hair and outfits. These women look incredibly tough and stoic and the layout is extremely pleasing to the eye.

That does it for another Best Covers! Don't see a cover that you thought was super awesome? Put it in the comments below, and we'll see you next week.

Love that Thor cover. Also really liked TMNT #30's cover -- simple yet effective.

Love the Aquaman cover!

@k4tzm4n: I'm with you here.

Lame covers this week, specially the Guardian's one.

TMNT #30 should be in that list.

@k4tzm4n: I haven't even gotten my comics yet this week (the accursed snow shall feel my wrath for that) and I agree with you on TMNT's cover! It should be here! One of the best comics there is!

I kept looking at those Thor and Aquaman covers again and again yesterday.

I dig the Guardians cover and the Thor one. The Ultimates Last Stand cover was really cool as well.

TMNT and Saga should be up here. I'm thinking of going to Kinkos to print it out and pit it up as a poster. No offense to anyone, but I didn't like any of the covers this week.

The Aquaman and Thor covers are both awe-inspiring. They convey both size and danger in fantastic ways.

Going to also have to voice the love for the TMNT #30 cover! That Aquaman cover did catch my eyes several times this week very good design

The blood on lying cat makes that cover look so great. I know Saga generally has amazing covers but this week's Saga cover may be my favorite from the entire series.

Posted by TDK_1997

Where are Saga #18 and TMNT #30 covers?Those were the best for me this week.

Posted by scouts1998

Fables #137

Edited by Jolt92

Aquaman, Thor and Black Science are all outstanding. Really liked Saga, All-Star Western, Dead Boy Detectives, TMNT, Saviors & Adventure Time as well!

Really good choices this week.

Posted by RulerOfThisUniverse

The Guardians of the Galaxy cover and the Clone cover look sorta bad IMO.

Posted by KryptonSabbath

I don't understand how this didn't make the list...

Yea I agree.

MY favorite COVE this week :

Damn you MATT!!! Why didn't you put this cover here!

Edited by Teerack

All-Star Western's cover was quite cool, too.

Aqua man and thor my faves

Edited by TheUnN4med

I only liked the Black Scince cover form the list.
Where the heck is SAGA? That cover is amazing!
Also, I loved the Revival cover.

Posted by Blackdog2009

Aquaman cover is epic. No posing, no gimmick, just a cover telling a story and very relevant to the interior story, which is rare now days.

Posted by ImTheDamnBatman

GOTG cover looks really bad, I think...

Posted by ArturoCalaKayVee

This cover may not be the best but it's quite powerful. I really love it. I'd get it if it were a poster.
