This was a pretty dang big week for comics. We get 4 new Marvel NOW! titles released, and the conclusion of Ultimate Comics’ “United We Stand” storyline. On the DC side we get the latest chapter of Scott Snyder’s “Death of the Family” Batman crossover. Let’s get to some covers.
All New X-Men #1
Cover by Stuart Immonen, Wade Von Grawbadger, and Marte Garcia
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.
