New comics day ALREADY!?! Wow the week went by fast. Every week I take a look at what new comic books are coming out and choose my top 5 covers of the week. These are covers that catch my eye, and make me want to pick these issues up. They could be books I read on the regular or titles I have never heard of but want to check out.
So let’s have a look at Tanya Tate’s Top 5 Comic Book Covers of the Week for August 7th!
AME COMI GIRLS #6 - DC Comics
Cover by Jonboy Meyers
Love, love, love the Ame-Comi heroes. I actually have several of these figures in my collection. This stylistic version of the DC Superheroes is so much fun. Even better is that the universe that these heroes reside in skews from the regular DCU so anything can happen. Really, pick-up an issue.
Synopsis: "Earth In Crisis" heralds the beginning of the end of the world as the girls are whisked away to the planet Rann. There they are greeted by Adam Strange and Hawkgirl and told of the imminent threat of the evil Sinestra. It's not just Rann in danger, but the universe itself!
GFT WONDERLAND DOWN RABBIT HOLE #3 (OF 5) - Zenescope Comics
Cover by Dawn McTeigue
What would my weekly top 5 list be without some Zenescope? This week is no exception as Grimm Fairy Tales: Wonderland Down Rabbit Hole #3 is released. This cover is incredible. We have Alice and Calie on opposite sides of the looking glass with things spinning out of control in the background. Very sexy, very cool.
Synopsis: After a year of being a patient at the Appleton Mental Ward, Alice Liddle finds herself home with the family she adores and loves. But the home she returns to is much different than the home she left. The emotional dead zone between her and husband continues to grow. Johnny's behavior is becoming increasingly odd and disturbing, and Calie has begun going to great lengths to insure that she becomes nothing like her mother. But even that pales in comparison as Alice comes to realize that the madness of Wonderland has begun to creep into this world intent on taking her family for its own heinous designs...and Alice is the only one who can see it coming. Forget everything you thought you knew and see how deep the rabbit hole goes in this psychological horror series by writers Pat Shand (Unleashed/Robyn Hood) and Raven Gregory (Wonderland/Fly).
LADY RAWHIDE #1 (OF 5) - Dynamite Comics
Cover by Joseph Michael Linsner
What’s going on here! Lady Rawhide is hot! I’ve worn a costume like this and I can just say fighting the forces of evil while keeping your boobs in is a special challenge all in itself. That aside, I really like this cover.
Synopsis: Lady Rawhide returns in an all-new adventure! This time, she faces not only the corrupt forces of the government -- bent on cowing the populace through privation and cruelty -- but also a new team of vigilantes: The Sisters of the White Rose. The Sisters, inspired by Lady Rawhide's actions, have taken up the struggle against tyranny. Although she supports the Sisters' aims, Lady Rawhide is forced to stand against their bloody methods
VAMPIRELLA #31 - Dynamite Comics
Cover by Fabiano Neves & Various
Oh, here we go. The super sexy queen vamp is back. Love this style, blood and boobs, reminds me of the Hammer Horror movies. So cool.
Synopsis: It's been said that you should never know your own future...but what if you do? Decisions will be made, fates will be met, and a kingdom will rise! But will Vampirella have the strength to bear the painful price of victory?
KICK-ASS 3 #2 (OF 8) - Marvel Comics
Cover by John Romita Jr.
What’s this? Not a semi-clad hottie on the cover of this comic? Well, this book is really on my list. It’s Kick-Ass 3 issue 2. So excited about the new Kick-Ass movie and trying so hard not to read this series until AFTER I’ve seen the movie, BUT I might sneak a peek! Love Kick-Ass and need to get this issue!
Synopsis: Uneasy lies the head that wears the crown...and that goes double for the cowl! Kick-Ass is now leading the reformed superhero team Justice Forever...just in time to face some terrifying new foes. But there's dissension in the JF ranks; will he be able to fend off a coup with Hit-Girl still in prison? Meanwhile, a broken Red Mist gets some tough love from Mommie Dearest.
