Best Comic Book Covers of the Week: 8/15/14

What covers were the super-awesomest this week?

Welcome back to best comic book covers of the week, where the staff of Comic Vine takes a look at all the covers that came out this week and picks their favorites. We also head over to Twitter and ask our followers what covers they loved over the past week. Let's get right down to business.

BATGIRL #34 by Alex Garner

First up is BATGIRL #34 by Alex Garner. Once again, Garner does a stellar job with a BATGIRL cover. The lighting here is fantastic and Batgirl looks completely bad [synonym for donkey].

ARCHER & ARMSTRONG #23 by Michael Walsh

Next is ARCHER & ARMSTRONG #23 by Michael Walsh. This is obviously a really cool homage to the cover of The Beatles album "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band." This cover is a lot of fun and it's great to see some of these memorable characters on this cover.

RED SONJA #11 by Jenny Frison

Here's RED SONJA #11 by Jenny Frison. Every cover Frison does for RED SONJA is simply stunning. We love how she sets up this cover and the cool perspective.

HULK #5 by Alex Ross

Next up is HULK #5 by Alex Ross. Hulk is looking pretty dang awesome here. The color work is outstanding and we love the little details, like the hair on Hulk's knuckles.

CONSTANTINE #17 by Juan Ferreyra

Finally, we have CONSTANTINE #17 by Juan Ferreyra. Easily, this is one of the coolest covers of the week. We love the doubly imagery here.

Twitter Pick: GHOSTED #12 by Dan Panosian

On Twitter, you guys picked GHOSTED #12 by Dan Panosian. GHOSTED had the most votes on Twitter this week and this cool cover has a real connection to what happens at the end of this issue.

All of these are pretty good! Glad the Ghosted cover made it. I didn't see the Constantine cover till you guys posted it and I love it! and of course Alex Ross can do no wrong in my eyes.

CONSTANTINE easily my favorite cover. Too bad the interior art and the writing isn't so good.

Posted by CaptainHoopla

Awesome covers this week. I would have added the Batman cover as well.

@nuec_sol: there is something really captivating about it, the second I saw it when gathering covers I just couldn't stop looking at it.

@inferiorego: i thought "@$$" was safe to use here? :|

It is but I thought it was funnier to phrase it that way. Plus, I don't know if I should say that in articles.
