Best Comic Covers of the Week: 9/28/12

Check out our favorite comic book covers for this week's new comic releases!

It's Friday which means it's time to list off some of our favorite covers from this week's new comics releases!

Not everyone is the biggest fan of the romance that is blossoming in JUSTICE LEAGUE, but regardless what you might think of the relationship between Superman and Wonder Woman, you can't deny that the reprint for the JUSTICE LEAGUE #12 cover by Jim Lee is really pretty. We loved the image so much we simply had to post it in our best covers post.

== TEASER ==

For as long as I can remember one of my favorite comic book series has been MOUSE GUARD, by David Petersen. Not only are the characters in Petersen's stories memorable, but they are always beautifully illustrated. The cover to MOUSE GUARD: THE BLACK AXE #6 is no exception. The cover to the final issue in the miniseries is stunning.

I don't know what it is about the cover to ELRIC: THE BALANCE LOST #12 that I love so much but I think that it's really stunning. The incredible cover by Francesco Mattina looks more like a creepy, gothic painting than it does the cover of a comic book. I also really love the fact that so few colors are used in the picture. Lot's of darkness and shadow highlighted with just a touch of red.

Artist Jae Lee's gorgeous to BEFORE WATCHMEN: OZYMANDIAS #3 is on of the best looking covers of this week's new releases, and you don't even have to be a fan of The Comedian to appreciate it. The artist uses an interesting angle, showcasing the character with his gun pointed downwards. It's definitely unique, and is one of the reasons why we liked it so much.

Rebekah Isaacs' cover for ANGEL AND FATH #14 is really adorable. The artist took a bit of inspiration from The Wizard of Oz and applied characteristics from the classic story to some Buffyverse characters. The result is a sweet cover with gorgeous colors.

These are some of our favorite covers from this week, what are some of yours? Post them in the comments below!

That double negative there reads like you're saying that the cover isn't really pretty. It should say "you can't deny that the reprint for the JUSTICE LEAGUE #12 cover by Jim Lee is really pretty."

The Elric cover is very reminiscent of the Michael Whelan covers of the Elric paperbacks.

As much as the the variant cover to Angel & Faith was cool I gotta say that the A cover was way cooler.

Too bad the Elric series hasn't been very good. It has had some awesome covers though. Why so few this week?

really dude? I think most of understood what she meant, that is just a douche thing to point out.

Picked up Mouse Guard a couple years ago when I was in a book store. Glad to see its still doing its thing. I find the art is extremely captivating, almost poetic

I apologize if it came off as douchey; that was not my intention. I, too, understood what it meant, but the original wording still confused me when I read it, so I figured I'd point it out. It's fixed now, though, so everything is hunky-dory.

I hardly see any Marvel covers here :/ I think the Ultimates #16 was pretty awesome

Posted by Cavemold

Good covers all around

Posted by LordRequiem

Posted by bloggerboy

Justice League and Elric look great.

Justice League #12 second printing and Before Watchmen: Ozymandias #3 cover are simply awesome...Jim Lee and Jae Lee rule.

Posted by ravisher

i like them mice

Posted by sourcebreaker

the angle for the comedian cover is epic!

Posted by Scott757

@sourcebreaker: Actually its Ozymandias

Posted by FoxxFireArt

Yeah, I'm no fan of the Wonder Woman & Superman couple. Partly because I think it's little else than a headlines grab on DC's part.

Other than that. That is a well drawn cover. For whatever reason, it keeps making me think of that INJUSTICE statue of Wonder Woman strangling Batman.

These covers are all great!
