Each week we sift through our buy pile and choose some of our favorite comic covers among the new releases. This week we had plenty to choose from! Check out our favorites below and be sure to post your favorites in the forums!

The variant cover to BEFORE WATCHMEN #4 by artist Ivan Reis is stunning. There is so much attention to detail in this one, incredibly striking image. The shadows covering Rorschach's face and shrouding the character in darkness are just perfect. The way the artist uses shadows to highlight the details in the character's coat and environment is truly stunning making this one a visually striking cover, indeed.

The latest cover to FAIREST #13 is absolutely breathtaking, but it's hard to expect anything less from an artist like Adam Hughes. The image is innovative and captures a moment of sheer excitement. It's incredibly well done.

Sometimes a comic cover doesn't need to be incredibly detailed to be visually striking. That is the case with the cover to BLACKACRE #4, depicting a man's bloody arms in chains before a bright, white background. It's the kind of image that makes you look twice in part because of its simplicity and the message the artist Brian Churilla is trying to convey.

Artist Adi Granov's cover to AGE OF ULTRON #1 is incredible. The detail and the minimal use of colors makes this one heck of a picture. The perspective and line work in the image is incredibly pretty and make us look at this one twice.

ADVENTURE TIME FIONNA & CAKE #3 of 6 The sweet little cover by artist Natasha Allegriis lovely. The colors by Amanda Thomas are vibrant and the cover is just really, very pretty, capturing the tone of the issue and the ADVENTURE TIME universe perfectly.

Finally, the cover to WINTER SOLDIER#16 by Declan Shalvey is fantastic the way that it plays with perspective. The minimal colors and the simplicity of the image is fantastic. The abstractness is what made us take a second glance.

Wow, since when is Marko Djurdjevic doing work for Marvel again? I remember him leaving on rather bad terms.

That Age of Ultron variant is fantastic, and I could have gotten it at my LCS, but I decided to get this one instead:

I'm not reading Before Watchmen and sometimes it hurts to look at those covers. Damn you temptation!

The Fairest cover is by far the best. It's a series I haven't been reading but the Adam Hughes covers alone make me want to check it out.

Yes that was Adi Granov's cover. Djurdjevic did do this cover though:

The Winter Soldier cover this week was in my opinion one of the worst covers of the week...

the covers posted by users are better then this weeks covers. Winter Soldier and Ultron a nice, but the other Ultron cover is way better. That Skottie Young cover is silly and I want to know what its from.

The Age of Ultron cover wins for me since I've been on a Cyberman rush this weekend with Doctor Who. Awesomeness!

It would! The entire Willow comic has had incredible covers. I also love the art inside too (I wasn't crazy about it on the first issue, but fell in love with it by issue 3).

Agreed. I sadly dropped Animal Man from my pull list but I like this cover, Winter Soldier, and Superman.
