Comic Book Covers 09/12/2012

A few of my favorites from the 09/12/2012 week.

Frankenstein: Agent of S.H.A.D.E. #0

Cover by Alberto Ponticelli

To be quite honest, I didn’t think any DC books would be making this list this month, because I’m not such a fan of the 0 issue cover styles.  They’re all essentially the same, just the main character jumping out at you.  It doesn’t really give the artist too much to work with.  This one I really liked though, it’s an awesome shot of Frank getting ready to mess someone’s day up really badly.

X-Men Legacy #273

Cover by Mark Brooks

This cover is so good, it’s essentially Rogue riding Battle Cat.  That’s really all the explanation needed for it being up here.

Captain America & Black Widow #636

Cover by Francesco Francavilla

Francesco Francavilla kicks butts.  His work on Black Panther: Man Without Fear was one of the main draws for that book.  Combine that with the fact that Captain America is my favorite hero and this one makes the list.

Comic Book Covers 09/05/2012

Here are my favorite covers from the current week of comics.

The Mighty Thor #19

Cover by Alan Davis

Not everyone likes him, but I’m kind of a sucker for Alan Davis art.  I especially like the way that he draws Thor, and this cover is another great rendition.

Hawkeye #2
Cover by David Aja

I love David Aja’s work, and his covers during his run on Immortal Iron Fist remain some of my favorite.  I was pumped to learn that he would be working with Matt Fraction again, this time on Hawkeye.  As this cover shows, he doesn’t disappoint.

Venom #24

Variant Cover by Skottie Young

It’s Skottie Young, and for me personally that’s really all that’s necessary for this cover to be on the list.  It’s a variant cover celebrating Spidey’s 50th Anniversary, and it’s fantastic.
