Best Comic Book Covers of the Week: 6/20/14

See what covers the Comic Vine staff loved this past week!

Welcome back to another edition of Best Comic Book Covers of the Week where the staff of Comic Vine picks out some of their favorite covers from the past week, just like the title says! In addition, we also ask our followers on Twitter what they loved, using the hashtag #CVCovers. Let's get right down to business and see what we picked!

BATWOMAN #32 by Rafael Albuquerque

First up is BATWOMAN #32 by Rafael Albuquerque. He never ceases to impress and Albuquerque does a great job of balancing positive and negative space here. Also, it's just a sweet looking picture.

THOR GOD OF THUNDER #23 by Agustin Alessio

Next is THOR GOD OF THUNDER #23 by Agustin Alessio. If you're looking for an epic cover, look no further. Thor looks incredibly awesome here and the overall cover is drawn so well. 

RED SONJA #10 by Jenny Frison

Here's RED SONJA #10 by Jenny Frison. She's been doing an awesome job on covers for this series, and one thing to point out is the background fading away. It's a real cool effect.

ELEKTRA #3 by Michael Del Mundo

Making the cut this week is ELEKTRA #3 by Michael Del Mundo. The outline of the sai makes a great centerpiece for this cover, and the detail Del Mundo puts into the sides is very nice.

SEX CRIMINALS #6 by Chip Zdarsky

Finally, here's SEX CRIMINALS #6 by Chip Zdarsky. It's a very simple cover, but it really stands out. The shading is really nice, and while this version of SEX CRIMINALS #6 was cool, this cover might be just a bit better...

And here's the Twitter pick of the week!

THE WICKED + THE DIVINE #1 by Jamie McKelvie and Matthew Wilson

Half the tweets said that THE WICKED + THE DIVINE #1 by Jamie McKelvie and Matthew Wilson was their favorite cover. McKelvie's art is always a treat, but it's Wilson's color work is what really raises this cover to the next level.

There you have it! Another week of awesomely-rad covers! Feel like we missed something you loved? Let us know in the comment section below and make sure to hop on Twitter, follow Comic Vine, and take part in the fun on Wednesdays!

The Elektra one was my favorite.

@lifeofvibe: Lets see the answer then, why is Starfire posing like a temptress and why are her boobs the size of her head?

@archizoom:

for us, why else would anybody pose or look like that?

Edited by ArchiZoom

@lifeofvibe: Wrong, Starfire is a character so she has no agency. Ed Benes, one of the most notoriously sexist artist, made her do this, just like he gave us a bird eye view of Wonder Girl's watermelon-sized bosoms in Superman #32.

gonna need to pick up Superman #32.

The Elektra 3 cover with her holding the sword looks like she is censoring herself.
