Best Comic Book Covers of the Week: 6/28/13

It was a HUGE weeks for books, so find out what we found to be the coolest looking covers this week.

Prepare yourself for awesome covermania! Each week, we take the time to go through all the books that came out that week, and we pick out the what we think are the coolest looking covers. As you may have seen/heard/sensed, this was a giant week for books. Most of us went broke at our LCS, so we had a lot to choose from.

First up is my personal favorite comic book cover of the week, X-O MANOWAR #14 by Matthew Waite. As a fan of the original Metoid game for NES, this puts a big smile on my face. Us older folks will most likely appreciate this cover a bit more than the younger folks...

Ye olde G-Man brought this awesome cover to my attention. It's TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES #23 by its creator Kevin Eastman. Looks like someone is about to get cut by the Foot Clan! Super cool layout for this cover. A few of us staff members have always really enjoyed Eastman's work.

I've always wanted a cover of just Hank Pym's face, and now I have it. This beautiful Sara Pichelli cover for AGE OF ULTRON #10AI says so much about the issue. We have Hank breaking through Ultron, and I love the amount of emotion Pichelli places in Pym's face. For me, it's one of the coolest covers of the week.

AQUAMAN #21 hit stores this week with a pretty sad cover of a lonely Aquaman trudging through a snowstorm all alone. Well, I'm not sure he's lonely, but this cover by Paul Pelletier and Rod Reis is pretty darn cool. I like seeing a character walk away. How often do we actually see the back of the main character on the cover?

Chris Samnee's work here, on DAREDEVIL #27, is awesome. I'm really digging that background which Foggy Nelson is standing on. It's a real eye catching piece, and I'm loving the contrast between the simplistic background, and the traditional character work here.

Lastly, we'll leave you with one of the various covers for JUPITER'S LEGACY #2. This one was drawn by Frank Quitely. It has a very cool perspective here, and the amount of detail Quitely puts into this is amazing, from the hairs in the beard, to the tiny details on the glove.

Now that you've seen what we loved, let us know which covers you thought were the best of the week in the comment section below! Make your voices heard!

Metroid Manowar wins!

The Age of Ultron cover just makes me question why the Flash is bursting through Ultron.

I'm 23, which probably makes me one of the "younger folks", but I went out of my way to get the 8-bit cover.

Hank Pym looks sad when he burst out of Ultron like that.

Flash is being covered in gooollldddd!!!

Edited by Shallbecomeabattoo

Flash guest stars in Age Of Ultron??? NICE!

Also, this cover is almost the same as the Batman and Red Hood one, a few weeks back.

And about that Turtles cover... I like the art style, but it looks kinda... weird. And yes, I mean in a sexual, a gang surrounds a single person who is in bondage kinda way. Doesn't look to good for Leonardo. Is Mark Millar involved in this?

I'm really digging those Turtles and X-O Manowar covers! :)

Cool X-O Manowar variant. I didn't notice on the Age of Ultron 10AI the first time I saw it but does Hank have tears in his eyes?

Cover boy! Put the bass in your walk. Head to toe, let your whole body talk.

In my opinion, the best cover of the week -- Darwyn Cooke's variant cover for Fatale #15 ...

That Aquaman cover is pretty sweet I say!

Quitely is phenomenal. I just spent several minutes starring at that cover. The amount of detail is amazing. Looking at it as a whole, the picture looks characturized and almost cartoony, but looking at the face ( the beard and the eyes in particular it's almost photo realistic.

He has to be one of the best, most original artists in the biz today.

@noj: Ha, all I could see is the cover "Batman and Red Hood"

This one is the best.

And that AoU cover looks exactly like the Batman and Red Hood cover.

Brilliant cover and story except for the sad ending. Kate and Lucky leaving... that's really bad, bro!

@marvelman2099: I'm with you I thought this would make it for sure. I love this cover so much.

They did say this event was gonna change everything.

And we already have one character crossing over from another company, mine as well have another.

Completely agree with this one.

In my opinion, the best cover of the week -- Darwyn Cooke's variant cover for Fatale #15 ...

Flash guest stars in Age of Ultron?!

I might have to pick up that issue...

Posted by MadeinBangladesh

I thought Sara did the Comic covers of the weeks? All those covers are good but not great. There were better covers like hawkeye, Fatale,and Massive.

@noj: You do know that is Hank Pym right?

Posted by KZR

@digbykong: That sells it. I'm definitely going to pick up the issue so I can get the recipe. BTW those ninja guys have knives. Where are their forks for the love of God? Savages.

@noj: at first glance I thought it was indeed Barry Allen . I was like wut ?

Posted by yo_yo_fun

I do love that Aquaman #21 cover! Also, that X-O Manowar #14 is really cool.

But my favorite this week has to be Batman/Superman #1.

(I would post an image but it's not letting me:/)

@marvelman2099: Jae Lee draws this same cover, with the same poses, back round, and floor, for every series he works on; so its not that unique.
