Each week I give a shout out to some of the amazing comic book covers that really catch my attention. Be it because they are shocking, sexy or just really cool these are my top 5 comic book covers of the week!
Avengers The Enemy Within #1 - Marvel Comics
Cover by Joe Quinones
Carol Danvers is one of my favourite superheroes, I loved her as Ms Marvel and now as Captain Marvel. So, a cover, let alone a series, that gives her the spotlight is incredible. I'm ready for her to shine. This cover is awesome with Captain Marvel front and center in the spotlight. Synopsis: The opening salvo to the hotly anticipated Avengers/Captain Marvel Four Part Event! Can't keep a good Captain down! Vicious echoes of the Avengers' past are cropping up all over Manhattan...and a grounded Captain Marvel refuses to be left behind. Who is the sinister figure behind these incursions and what does it have to do with Carol Danvers' mysterious condition? But is this villain real or just a figment of Captain Marvel's increasingly deadly imagination?
Grimm Fairy Tales Presents Madness Of Wonderland #4 - Zenescope
Cover by Mike Lilly
Whoa. The Mad Hatter has quite the booty! LOL, it looks like she might have gotten mixed up in to something a bit sinister. And her pose is very, erm, distracting. Synopsis: The mind-bending sequel to Call of Wonderland is here! People are dying all around Detective Legrasse and now her girlfriend has been kidnapped. Can she figure out what her partner's involvement in the recent murders is and how it ties into Johnny Liddle or will she learn the terrible truth much too late? And what are the horrific creatures Lovecraft found underground and how can he stop them before they get out into the city? Don't miss the stunning conclusion to the hit comic book that ties directly into Zenescope's ongoing Wonderland series! Featuring the DEBUT of the all new, completely insane, wickedly whack heir to a certain infamous top hat...THE NEW MAD HATTER!
Grimm Fairy Tales Presents Vampires The Eternal #2 - Zenescope
Cover by Stjepan Sejic
Look at that smile! Another sexy Zenescope cover This cover reminds me of the Hammer Horror movies. It has that really sexy feeling while in a horror setting. Really fun cover. Synopsis: Vampires invade the Grimm Universe in this bloody, sexy, and haunting tie-in to Zenescope's UNLEASHED event. Reunited with the Black Death, the vampires that sired her centuries before, Samira's new life comes into bloody conflict with her old one. Meanwhile, Van Helsing's search for Sela leads her to a familiar face that might not be very pleased to see her.
Supergirl #20 - DC Comics
Cover by Emanuela Lupacchino
Power Girl makes an appearance in this issue of Supergirl. I have no idea what is going on here, but I want to find out, LOL. Synopsis: Supergirl is dead-Long live Supergirl! Or so it seems as the strange connection between the Karas has Power Girl becoming Supergirl again.
X-Factor #256 - Marvel Comics
Cover Artist: David Yardin
WOW. I never read X-Factor but this cover looks very interesting. This just looks shocking. Now I need to go back and pick up the rest of the Hell on Earth War series. Synopsis: One Hell Lord stands victorious as the Earth is consumed in fire and brimstone.The few remaining members of X-Factor make one last ditch effort to save the world from its grim future. Not all will survive the final battle.And the last person you would expect winds up sitting on the throne of Hell…
