Best Comic Book Covers of the Week: 2/28/14

What covers did we love this week?

Welcome back to best comic book covers of the week! Each week, we fine folks here at Comic Vine discuss the coolest comic book covers of the week and put them into a delightful little package for you fine folks here. This week, there were some really cool covers that caught our eye, so let's take a look at what we thought was the coolest covers for the week of February 28th, 2014.

FANTASTIC FOUR #1 by Alex Ross

Up first on our list is FANTASTIC FOUR #1 by Alex Ross. There is no way to deny the fact that Ross is one brilliant artist. All of his work at Marvel is breathtaking, and while it's a bummer he doesn't do interiors that much anymore, at least we get to see a cover for a Marvel book again.

TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES #31 by Ross Campbell

Next, we have TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES #31 by Ross Campbell. Man, TMNT covers have been depressing recently, ever since City Fall ended. While it's sad to watch Leonardo try to get back to normalcy, Campbell's art is beautiful and his color choices here are relaxing and incredibly pleasing.

CATACLYSM THE ULTIMATES LAST STAND #5 by Mark Bagley with John Dell & Jesus Aburtov

Here is the cover for CATACLYSM THE ULTIMATES LAST STAND #5 by Mark Bagley with John Dell & Jesus Aburtov. While the interior story may have been a bit of a letdown, this cover is the perfect representation for the events within the book. The balance of the negative space and the floating rocks is fantastic. Great composition here.

WOLVERINE #2 by Adi Granov

Next on our list is WOLVERINE #2 by Adi Granov. We can all be in agreement that Granov's art is utterly beautiful, right? The composition, the costume design, the color... Everything about this piece is utterly fantastic. We especially love the little sneer on Wolverine's face.

ALL STAR WESTERN #28 by Darwyne Cooke

Finally, we have the cover for ALL STAR WESTERN #28 by Darwyne Cooke. The staff here at Comic Vine is a real sucker for Cooke's artwork. It's out of another time and reminds us where comics came from. Cooke mixes classic and contemporary techniques to make a really beautiful piece here.

That's it for another weekly adventure with the best comic book covers of the week, we'll see you guys next week with a whole new batch of covers. Do you have a cover you simply love that we missed? Let us know in the comment section below!

Wolverine and Fantastic Four rock

Edited by Wolverine08

The Wolverine cover is absolutely incredible. Adi Granov crafted an excellent piece there. Too bad the actual comic wasn't anywhere near as good as the cover..........

Nice ones, but for me Wolverine and thex-men 42 was a winner for this week.

it fits story and for me is just funny, especially with Quentin thinking of graduating as smth bad XD

It's called "best covers of the week," not "which cover has inking that doesn't match the light source which completely destroys the sense of depth."

Oh god I don't think I've ever seen someone owned this badly on CV before and by the staff no less! :P

Wolverine and Fantastic Four rock

Agreed. They're so awesome.

Posted by Overlander

Yeah, I liked this week's picks. The Fantastic Four one was hands-down the best.

Edited by longbowhunter

I thought this was pretty great too. Andrew Robinson is amazing. I wish I was a Beatles fan, I'd pick up the Fifth Beatle. I hear his work on that book is phenomenal.

Really dig the All Star Western cover as well. Any time Cooke draws Jonah Hex, I'm a happy boy!

To me the Hawkeye cover stood out the most. Bit different and I like that in a cover

Posted by judasnixon

@tensta: How did I forget about Hawkeye?

Edited by Bull_iod

Is the Adi Granov Wolverine, title going to a linked picture with the Moon Knight cover?

Posted by MadeinBangladesh

Great covers all look great especially Fan4 Alex Ross and Wolverine. ALso should have added Hawkeye cover.

Posted by MadeinBangladesh

These! Cataclysm cover sucks and wolverine looks like he's taking a dump.

Those covers (Aquaman and Flash) really aren't that special. They look alright, not first for best covers.

Edited by RulerOfThisUniverse

That Fantastic Four cover is amazing. I love Alex Ross art.

@inferiorego: Trust me, it's not just you and other staffers. We users get pretty sick of the negativity too. That's not what I come here for.

No. Completely different buildings/angles/backgrounds. Same artist is all.

Edited by Maddpanda531

Ross cover made it in...No surprise there! He's certainly one talented man!

Edited by spinningbirdcake

Awesome covers in the article and comments. I also loved this one and happy to see him on the whole issue since I though Rocofort was drawing it.

The Wake and Black Science were my favorites this week.

Edited by LyraFay

Can Alex Ross do a Superman cover again?!

Edited by Violens

you guys forgot this one

Edited by DoomDoomDoom

@violens: Curious, are you reading this?

Pretty sure he's only contributing to the negativity with his, "No shut up that covers ink sucks" comment.

Professional?

Edited by momo111191

typical marvel covers that have nothing to do with the issue beat dc covers that actually hint to the plot your marvel bias is killing these articles.

TMNT and Hawkeye had phenomenal covers this week.

Posted by Nox_Arc

Dare I say it, but I think Campbell is the best artist to jump on the current TMNT on-going.

Posted by Fallschirmjager

alex ross could draw Batman and Superman kissing each other and everyone would love it.

I am a sucker for Jae Lee's artwork, so I might have to go with Bats/Supes this week.
