Best Comic Book Covers of the Week: 5/2/14

Find out what the staff loved this week.

It's time for another edition of Best Comic Book Covers of the week where the staff of Comic Vine picks out some of their favorite covers! We also ask our followers on Twitter to let us know what they loved as well. Let's get right to business.

SILVER SURFER #2 by Francesco Francavilla

First up, this week, is SILVER SURFER #2 by Francesco Francavilla. This cover really gives the reader the look and feel for this character. He's just a guy floating through the cosmos. Plus, it doesn't hurt that Francavilla is amazing.


Up next is SERENITY: LEAVES ON THE WIND #4 by Dan Dos Santos. Dos Santos does a great job giving the reader Kaylee's inner-awesomeness here. The painted work and colors look so beautiful as well.

AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #1 by Marcos Martin

Here we have AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #1 by Marcos Martin. There were a lot of really cool variant covers for this first issue, including one from Alex Ross, but this one just stood out as the coolest. The cover has a fantastic perspective.


Next is BATTLESTAR GALACTICA: SIX #1 by Jenny Frison. She has done some amazing cover work for Dynamite recently, and she hits another home run here. Six has this beautiful sadness in her eyes. The shading and colors look fantastic here and really add to the total image.

SHADOWMAN: END TIMES #1 by Giuseppe Camuncoli

Finally, we have SHADOWMAN: END TIMES #1 by Giuseppe Camuncoli. This is one eye-catching cover. The color work is pretty simplistic at first glimpse, but it gives this overall cover such a cool look and feel.

Time for the Twit-pick of the week. This was the cover you guys let us know you liked the most.

DEADLY CLASS #4 by Wes Craig and Lee Loughridge

Your pick was DEADLY CLASS #4 by Wes Craig and Lee Loughridge. This is a very cool cover and it works well because the composition is so weird yet so intriguing.

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! Also, make sure to check us out on Twitter to get your Twit-picks in for next week using #CVCovers, which we did not get a chance to do this week.

Don't agree with most the choices

I voted for that Deadly Class cover. I really like that Silver Surfer cover, too. I wish Francavilla would do a series with the character, because all he's done with him is phenomenal.

I honestly thought the Jerome Opena variant for Spidey was better than the one that got the vote but okay.

My favourite of the ones chosen is Shadowman.

Like Spider-Man and Silve Surfer covers. Despite not liking the character Silver Surfer i have to go with his cover that is just an amazing cover.
