Best Comic Covers of the Week: 5/24/13

Check out our favorite comic covers for the week's new releases.

Each week we round up our favorite comic covers from the week's new releases and we highlight them all in one place. This week there were a few that we really liked, and we hope some of our picks made your list as well. As always, if there are any covers that we may have overlooked, be sure to post them in the forums below. Now, without further ado, here are our favorite comic covers for the week of May 24th, 2013!

First up is Chris Samnee's amazing cover to DAREDEVIL #26 featuring a great image of Daredevil gliding across a clothesline across the skyline of New York City. Making this image even sweeter is the fact that the hanging clothing actually spells out Daredevil. Yeah, we thought it was pretty clever too.

This week's cover to FLASH #20 is an absolutely jaw-dropping image. The cover pictures our hero in midst of movement and the colors, expression and vibrancy of the picture by artist Francis Manapul is just a pleasure to look at.

Artist Chris Mooneyham's cover for FIVE GHOSTS HAUNTING OF FABIAN GRAY #3 is so different and so abstract that we had to place it on our list for this week. The blend of the colors used for the picture are great.

We love nearly anything that artist Amanda Conner illustrates, so when we saw her cover to DC's latest series THE GREEN TEAM #1 for this week we had to highlight it. There is so much going on and Amanda's attention to detail is superb; this is definitely one cover that we loved.

The cover to artist/writer Stephen Mooney's HALF PAST DANGER #1 is wonderful. It's a collection of small images that make one whole image and it's pretty enough to be a poster. The cover to the first issue is enticing and really gives viewers a sense of some of the themes and concepts we may find in the story within its pages. It's a well done image that made us give this comic a second look.

Mark Bagley is really great at illustrating very powerful images, and his cover to FANTASTIC FOUR #8 is a good example of that. How he manages to capture both a softness and an intensity in Ben's face is impressive, and it is overall just a really cool image.

This week's cover to TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES VILLAIN MICROSERIES #2 is all about perspective. The image is lovely and artist Andy Kuhn does a stunning job catching both reflection and light just perfectly. This is the kind of cover that makes us want to pick up the issue.

Last but not least is the cover to X-MEN LEGACY #11. This, like many of the covers by artist Mike Del Mundo that we have seen to this series is abstract, creative, innovative and just plain beautiful. The amount of detail and the attention to light and the way it hits the objects in this image are brilliant.

What were some of your favorite comic covers for this week? Be sure to let us know in the forums!

I love this feature so much!!! Man, X-Men Legacy has awesome covers every single issue. Not to mention the writing and art is super good. It's a shame that not many people have been talking about it though...

Michael Del Mundo's covers are effing gorgeous.

All his the covers he's done for X-Men Legacy are excellent.

And it's an underrated book, Spurrier is doing a great job on the writing.

I especially like the humor.

The Legacy cover is just awesome as always. Really enjoyed the Scarlet Spider cover too!

I wish Amanda Connor did the interiors for The Green Team.

Is DS gonna be the private security for Green Team?

the Ninja Turtles cover is an homage to M.C. Escher

Great to see Manapul & Buccellato back in the game with another stunning cover for The Flash.

Chris Mooneyham is burning it up on Five Ghosts. Great mini, great artist. Another awesome DD cover. Love how Daredevil is spelled out on the clothesline. Too clever.

Mike's covers are awesome, but Scarlet Spider's cover should've made this, great covers though :)

Posted by DonFelipe

Glad to see Five Ghosts is mentioned here!

All the other covers are great, too, except for Green Team (boring) and X-Men Legacy (previous ones were way better than this).

The cover of Half-Past Danger alone made me pick it up. Glad I did too because it was a good read!

@babs I picked up Half Past Danger and Green Team but havent read them yet.

Posted by MadeinBangladesh

Everything about Daredevil was perfect!

Lovee every cover of XMEN Legacy!


the Green Team's blonde looks just like Power Girl.

Wonder if she's wearing panties.

To me, Green Team's cover sucks. Too cluttered.

Half Past Danger was the highlight for me this week, I strongly recommend checking it out one of the best creator owned series I have read in awhile and it's always nice to see some great comics coming from Ireland.
