This is a pretty awesome week for beautiful comic covers. When we were looking through our stack of new releases, we had a pretty difficult time choosing which comics to put on our list.

First up though is Cory Walker''s cover to INVINCIBLE #94. I love the contrast in the two scenes depicted on this cover -- on the top portion of the image we see the series' main protagonist broken and beaten, and below we see two characters clearly in love. Not only is it great to see a range of emotions depicted on this week's cover, but Cory Walker's pencils are absolutely stunning. The colors on the cover are equally beautiful, too.

THE WOLVERINE ANNUAL by Alan Davis is next up. Some of us are huge Alan Davis fans -- his style is incredibly unique and he really does a fantastic job on the cover to Wolverine's annual. One look at the image and you know it was drawn by Davis.This is a really intricate image with a lot of stuff going on, and Davis' attention to detail is evident here.

My personal favorite cover for this week (and you may or may not agree) is Ken Garing's cover to his PLANETOID series. I am absolutely in love with this image. I love that the only real bit of color we see here is in the from at the very center of the page, who is perched before an industrial looking background. It's a breathtaking picture and creates this great contrast between organic life and synthetic. It seems like Garing really took his time when illustrating this image based on all of the details. I really love this image.

Finally, we have Marcos Martin's cover's to the 50th issue of THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN. Considering they were all absolutely stunning, it was pretty hard to choose just one -- so we've created a gallery (below) showing them all off. We loved how each one is unique and each cover captures a different time period. This is some truly beautiful artwork.

We are sure we missed a few great covers this week, so be sure to post your favorites that didn't make our list down below!

The Spider-Man covers are fantastic. I'm stunned by the Planetoid cover as well.

@Billy Batson: A comic book that features no superheroes or anything of the sort, just boring old gang crime. How could that possibly garner interest from anyone?

Planetoid is definitely some time consuming intricate artwork. I've always found environmental art to be the most time consuming, and yet some of the most important art in any frame. I also like the user posted flash cover. And Spider-man cover is also nice.

Planetoid is the only cool cover. The rest suck. Really 50 years of Spider-man and maybe they could have gotten some classic Spider-Man artists to have a feature cover.

In fact I think this segment should post all the covers of the week and the fans should vote on the best.

I just came back from my local comic store and I couldn't find Amazing Spider-Man #692. Guess I'll check Midtown Comics.

It's always the same artist or book every week. While they may be good titles, don't get me wrong, but it's a tad annoying when other awesome titles are ignored.

Maybe I'm just picky that way.

I adore the Planetoid cover, it's one of my absolute favourites. Plus, y'know, Planetoid is decidedly awesome.

Quite like some of the Spider-man ones, but some of them are a bit naff.

@mtrakos: I was hoping someone would say it before I had to. The rest are admirable - the Planetoid being the most compelling.

Ted Naifeh's Courtney Crumrin and Manapul's Flash covers this week were better than all of these, except for Planetoid.

Even people who don't read/like comics could appreciate that Flash cover as a gorgeous piece of art!

I think the red spiderman cover easily tops the rest. I don't read 616 spidey, but I need to figure out how to pick this one up just for that. Not really sure how to get variant covers though. I guess I'll just ask them at my shop.

The Gwen Stacy Spidey cover is the best. Greatest example of reducing a superhero to simply being human. And thanks to Sony's renditions of the character we'll probably never see that moment.

I agree. It definitely deserves to be listed. But I think the Planetoid cover is better and the Spider-Man anniversary covers are just as good.

The top scene of the Invincible cover was done by Ryan Ottley. Corey Walker only did the bottom scene.
