Best Comic Book Covers of the Week: 10/17/14

What covers were the raddest?

We're back! (A Dinosaur's Story) After a week off, working at New York Comic Con, we can now present to you the best of the best of comic book covers. Each week, the Comic Vine staff enters the Thunderdome and the only thing that leaves is some of the coolest covers from the past week. Let's get right down to risky business before I run out of movie references.

JUDGE DREDD MEGAZINE #353 by Phil Winslade

No Caption Provided

First on our list is a personal favorite of mine: JUDGE DREDD MEGAZINE #353 by Phil Winslade. Riding a robot on the cover of a comic? Yes please! Winslade does some great overall work on this cover, but more than anything, I just like what's going on here. YEAH!

DEADLY CLASS #8 by Wes Craig & Lee Loughridge

No Caption Provided

Up next is DEADLY CLASS #8 by Wes Craig & Lee Loughridge. Aside from DEADLY CLASS being a great book, their covers are very impressive. I always love the color palette for the covers as well. It looks really simple, but the choices really make the cover pop.

BATMAN/SUPERMAN #15 by Jae Lee

No Caption Provided

Here's BATMAN/SUPERMAN #15 by Jae Lee. This is terrifying on a bunch of different levels. Jae Lee's art is haunting, in the best way possible. Lee's covers are always stunning though and really catches the reader's eye, even when someone's fingers are made of people.

DEATH OF WOLVERINE #4 by Juan Doe

No Caption Provided

Next is DEATH OF WOLVERINE #4 by Juan Doe. This issue of DEATH OF WOLVERINE had a few great covers, but Doe's work stood above the rest for being so different. We love the simplistic design and the layout of this cover.

DEADPOOL'S ART OF WAR #1 by Scott Koblish

No Caption Provided

Finally, here's DEADPOOL'S ART OF WAR #1 by Scott Koblish. What a peaceful and tranquil cover. It's just so calming. Wait, is Deadpool kicking someone off a cliff here? That's pretty awesome.

Twitter Pick: ORIGINAL SIN ANNUAL #1 by Francesco Francavilla

No Caption Provided

You guys picked ORIGINAL SIN ANNUAL #1 by Francesco Francavilla. The throwback to older science fiction and horror books is pretty cool, and as always, Fracavilla is a amazing artist with a wonderful style.

There you have it! Let us know in the comment section below what covers you loved! Also, check us out on Twitter and let us know on Wednesdays and Thursdays what covers you loved using #CVCovers. Maybe next week, Twitter will be actually working correctly! See you folks next week!

I didn't like trinity of Sin, and Teen Titans was very "meh" this week (sad because I was really looking forward to both) but they both had fantastic (and very rad) covers.

Actually, it was only "Deadpool's art of war" that he picked as considered one of the best covers. Kust my opinion.

@captainmarvel4ever: I really liked the Teen Titans cover this month! I think the colors with Kenneth Rocaforts pencil is makes it great. He really got a good colorist on this book. All of the characters really pop out and are lively. Especially Beast Boy.

Other favorites for me:

@crazyscarecrow: One of the biggest problem early New 52 Teen Titans had was an awful color scheme, with too many reds, yellows, blacks, and a bit of purple, not light colors like green, blue or white. This new run on the team has a nice mix of colors that makes the team more aesthetically balanced.

Deadly Class' cover isn't very good at all.
