Welcome back to the best comic book covers of the week! Each week, the Comic Vine staff picks out their favorite covers from the past week and praises them beyond belief to a point of pure ridiculousness. Let's get right down to business and check out some of the coolest covers from this week.

PUNISHER #2 Variant by Jerome Opeña & Frank Martin

First up is PUNISHER #2 by Jerome Opeña & Frank Martin. The colors in this piece are fantastic. Frank Martin does some amazing things with the graffiti behind the Punisher. The overall piece is extremely eye popping, specially the split between the gritty side of things and the palm trees of L.A.

BLOODSHOT & THE H.A.R.D. CORPS #19 by Clayton Crain

Up next is BLOODSHOT & THE H.A.R.D. CORPS #19 by Clayton Crain. I think everyone is in agreement with how epic Crain's covers are, right? This cover just screams awesome, and the layout and colors are nothing short of pure brilliance.

GHOSTED #7 by Matteo Scalera

Here we have the cover for GHOSTED #7 by Matteo Scalera. Fans of the series will love this cover simple because of who is on it. Random folks will love it for the little things, like how Anderson's body fades out or how there are skulls on her legs.

RED SONJA #7 Variant by Amy Reeder Hadley

Next on our list is a variant to RED SONJA #7 by Amy Reeder Hadley. This is one intense cover, and while there were quite a few cool looking covers from this book, this month, Hadley's cover really captured the ferocity and intensity of this character in battle.

AVENGERS WORLD #3 by Agustin Alessio

Next is AVENGERS WORLD #3 by Agustin Alessio. This cover looks like the VHS box art of a 70s martial arts movie, and we mean that in the most complimentary way possible. The colors give this a very classic looking style which really makes it pop out.

SUPERGIRL #28 by Giuseppe Camuncoli and Cam Smith

Finally, here's SUPERGIRL #28 by Giuseppe Camuncoli and Cam Smith. I've always been a huge fan of Camuncoli's work and it really shines here. Supergirl not only looks awesome, but incredibly angry as she reaches for that red lantern ring. Easily, this is one of best covers from DC this week!

That's it for another weekly adventure with the best comic book covers of the week, we'll see you guys next week with a whole new batch of covers. Do you have a cover you simply love that we missed? Let us know in the comment section below!

I really liked SSMTU and Nova's this week. Unity's was cool too.

More people need to read Gail Simon's Red Sonja

Don't really get what's so great about the Ghosted, Red Sonja, or Supergirl ones.

Avengers word is beautiful

Some awesome choices there. It was a solid week for guns on covers.

I'll just leave these here:

Punisher and Avengers World are nice. Loving how it looks like Frank has an inadvertent halo above his head.

I was pretty fond of the regular Justice League #28 cover. Probably more for the colors than the pencils though.

#12 Posted by iaconpoint (1368 posts) - - Show Bio

Nice Red Sonya but anything with the words Gail Simone on the cover cheapen it. I'll go with Supergirl instead.

#13 Posted by G_Money_Christmas (885 posts) - - Show Bio

I was going to agree with Supergirl. I like how they gave her the goatee too.

#14 Posted by Cap10nate (3037 posts) - - Show Bio

I can't wait for Crain to do the interiors for Rai and Harbinger. I love his art.

#15 Posted by FearTheLiving (4655 posts) - - Show Bio

Punisher one is pretty awesome.

#16 Edited by longbowhunter (8286 posts) - - Show Bio

Amy Reeder's Red Sonya is just about the best thing ever.

As far as I can tell pretty much anything from Amy Reeder is the best thing ever. So mad Rocket Girl got delayed.

This was my favorite cover this week!

Anybody know why ace is in valiant?

#21 Posted by Perfect 10 (1389 posts) - - Show Bio

too bad that's not the cover i have for avengers world

#22 Posted by Extremis (3375 posts) - - Show Bio

I see you got a taste for the violence.

That Punisher one is pretty great. The comic itself, not so much.

Good choices this week. It's hard to say which is my favorite for the week. I like Supergirls, Bloodshots and, Avengers World.

@longbowhunter: Yeah I have those in trade and they're great. She also did really good work on Batwoman. Really different style from JH that I thought was a cool change.

#27 Edited by HulkPool23 (1 posts) - - Show Bio

definitely punisher, always had good covers

#29 Posted by Exile-616 (697 posts) - - Show Bio

I could never fathom how one can see any appeal in Clayton Crain's art.

#30 Posted by Trodorne (2502 posts) - - Show Bio

A great cover by Pop Mhan

#33 Edited by amaltheias (36 posts) - - Show Bio

Avengers World is gorgeous, wow.

#35 Posted by Lykida (189 posts) - - Show Bio

The Avengers Worls variant is so nice. I just wish the story was as good as this...

No Unity?

I love the Ghosted one. I think the Red Sonja regular cover is better. The bloodshot cover is awesome too!!
