Best Comic Covers of the Week: 8/22/14

Take a look at these sweet covers!

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.

WOLVERINE ANNUAL #1 by Dustin Nguyen

First up is WOLVERINE ANNUAL #1 by Dustin Nguyen. Seeing Nguyen draw Wolverine is different, but ultimately incredibly refreshing. This cover is jam-packed with awesomeness.

BATMAN ETERNAL #20 by Alex Garner

Next is BATMAN ETERNAL #20 by Alex Garner. While this isn't one of Garner's best pieces, it's still pretty dang amazing. We love how the three scenes and their characters separate this cover.

DAREDEVIL #7 by Chris Samnee

Here's DAREDEVIL #7 by Chris Samnee. His covers are always really eye-catching. They have a great style and a sense of fun humor that reminds up of bronze age covers.

BATWOMAN #34 by Rafael Albuquerque

Finally, here's BATWOMAN #34 by Rafael Albuquerque. We are loving this cover this week. Albuquerque creates a haunting piece with some very cool color work here.

Twitter Pick: MANIFEST DESTINY #9 by Matthew Roberts & Owen Gieni

Over on Twitter, you guys picked MANIFEST DESTINY #9 by Matthew Roberts & Owen Gieni. Although, on it's surface, it's a simple piece, there is a ton of great looking detail here and we and the rest of you think it's rad!

There you have it! Let us know in the comment section below what covers you loved! Also, check us out on Twitter and let us know on Wednesdays and Thursdays what covers you loved using #CVCovers. See you folks next week!

Alex Garner is one of my favorite cover artists. So consistent.

The lack of All-New Ghost Rider was a bit...disappointing.

All great choices!

I must be the only one that truly can't stand Samnee's art. Never in a million years would I label anything he does as "best of the week".

No Multiversity? Whoa...

Posted by Lazz33

@transformers1024: you must be, because his art is great and one of the best regular series artists going in my opinion.

I loved it.

Gotta say, I prefer some of the user choices. Getting tired of seeing Garner covers every week. We get that he makes pretty covers, but other artists could use a turn imo.
