This week was, without a doubt, this week offered the greatest selection of comic book covers since I started doing this. To be honest, this list could have been twice as long but I elected to limit myself to…
Captain America #7 (cover art by Alex Ross)
Fantastic Four #6 (cover art by Esad Ribic)
Justice League Odyssey #5 (cover art by Stjepan Sejic)
Mysteries of Love in Space #1 (cover art by Joelle Jones, Alex Sinclair)
Star Wars: Doctor Aphra #28 (cover art by Ashley Witter)
The Adventures of Captain Cosmic #2 (cover art by Andy W. Clift)
Weapon X vol. 5 (cover art by Rahzzah)

Are these comic books you reading usually available in digital/e-book format or hardcopy?
Yep! Check out comixology.
SOME super yummy choices here!
I’m really struck by the strong ‘TV contrast’ of Captain America. The black to white seems to give a tension to the scene too.
Then again I’m drawn to the cyan/turquoise (like the other week) on the Fantastic Four cover as this time it lends a cold, callous feel to ol’ Doc Doom. Plus I love the simplicity of just showing the face/mask – what’s going on behind those eyes….?
I love the style and composition of StarWars Doctor Aphra (colours not influencing me here!) Just stunning and quite possibly my favorite…
And finally, LOVE the heat coming from Weapon X. With the weather as it is at the moment, I’d really appreciate the coat he’s wearing!!
“What does Lois SEE in him?”
Classic…as in I think the line was used in the ‘60s, when Brother’s DC comics were part of my early reading. Dèjá vu, anyone?
PS: Of course, “What does X see in Y?” is a classic fiction trope.
My aging memory hints that there was a long-ago cover featuring Lois saying the same of Supes and…Lana Lang? Some villainess? Or perhaps Kal-El wondering about Lois and Bizarro Superman?
Off to Google-land…
Off topic: My daily TV GUIDE newsletter recommended this.
Doctor Doom, yum.
Cap’ Am’. Classic and strong, lots of storytelling there, like in the old days. Not a punch in the face but far more rewarding if one takes time to dive into it.
Mysteries of love in space, very pulpy, fun.
Doctor Aphra, nice compo, nice contrast between main character and background. Basically just someone scanning stuff for analyse, fun idea. 😀
