I tried doing this before but didn't keep up with it. I think we should do an unofficial "cover of the week" thing.

This week, for me, it was close. Marvel Zombies vs Army of Darkness almost took it. 52 was pretty sweet. But I think I gotta go with this one:

Yeah, that 52 cover is fantastic.

This one was pretty sweet last week:

My comic shop owner knows I love Green Lantern so she stuck it in my bag rather than sell it on ebay.

I just love Willow so this has got to be the best cover of the week for me:

#7 Posted by G-Man (31805 posts) - - Show Bio

Yeah it's a sweet cover. That Jo Chen is something. She also did the Runaways cover, obviously.

Staff
#8 Posted by Walkingstone (10723 posts) - - Show Bio

She's very good. She captured Willow to perfection.

#9 Posted by G-Man (31805 posts) - - Show Bio

Nothing against the other artist on Buffy but that cover puts the other to shame. These variant covers seem to be getting out of hand.

Staff

We don't seem to be getting the variant covers in the UK. I've checked all my regular haunts and sites but no one has them. Not that I like them but it's Buffy so I'd buy 'em.

My vote goes to Runaways, runner-up is Omega Flight.

Here's another sweet cover:

I know, for some reason, some people don't like Salvador Larroca. I do not get that. This was a great issue. I'm gonna do the write up later but I gotta get goin' to go see Spidey 3 in IMAX!!

"I was really digging the Astonishing X-Men #21 variant cover with Emma Frost. It's very symbolic and describes almost everything about her...if anyone knows what I mean by that. I also loved the Buffy #3 covered, which was mentioned in one of the first posts here."

This one from last week.

What the hell is Bats doing and why does Joker have a DP pass after everyone has read Kingdom Come? Isn't this how the end begins?

#25 Posted by Buckshot (18914 posts) - - Show Bio

If you go by the covers, Batman is a masochist and Joker works for the Daily Planet. What a wacky world.

#26 Posted by Zaraki Ichigo (6476 posts) - - Show Bio

In Kingdom Come isn't that how Joker finally did something so horrible that it made Maggog kill him and Supes go into hiding?

The Joker is gonna kill Jimmy Olsen.

i believe what G-man is trying to say, is that he liked these covers...

better?

#34 Posted by Prodigal Son (3473 posts) - - Show Bio

Me neither, but for some reason the artwork just screamed 1940s to me. I thought it was subliminally cool.

Yeah, I agree. Cap is such a great comic even though he's dead. Can't wait for #27.

#44 Posted by Methos (40103 posts) - - Show Bio

and

love the teen titans one... just a really emotional cover...

the green lantern one has to go up... any GL cover that shows that much of Sapphire's ass has to be a winner :D

#45 Posted by G-Man (31805 posts) - - Show Bio

Donna seems a little...you know in that pic. It came close to being a contender. But some of the faces drawn by Randy Green seem a little off. I liked the DD one too. That was close to being my #1. I think I'm gonna go with:

Staff
#46 Posted by Methos (40103 posts) - - Show Bio

dunno... i like the faces in titans...

cassie's face is extremely well done, if a little small for her body lol

M

#47 Posted by G-Man (31805 posts) - - Show Bio

I think it's that Robin looks too...manga for me. He should look younger. Cyborg looks kinda generic too. I also didn't like the art inside all that much. Just hard to get used to when the artist changes. And Donna does look nice but it almost doesn't even look like her. The face and chest just seem different.

Staff
#48 Posted by Buckshot (18914 posts) - - Show Bio

I was trying to decide between the Daredevil and Fairy Tale one too, I just went the other way.

EDIT: I just noticed that the GL cover somehow manages to show both her ass and breasts almost completely.

Gotta agree with G-Man there. Though it's mostly how off Donna looks that sticks out to me. She's front and center there yet her face looks rather odd, not like her.
