Best Comic Book Covers of the Week: 5/4/12

There were a lot of great covers to choose from this week; here are some of our favorites.

Another week is behind us, and we've got another batch of great looking comic book covers from this Wednesday's new releases. The Comic Vine staff got together and chose some of our favorite covers from this week and we've got them all listed for you below.

The first of the batch of comic covers we absolutely loved was the cover to DIAL H #1, one of DC's brand new "Second Wave" books. DIAL H had two very nice looking covers, but we went with Brian Bolland's version for this week. Why? Well first of all, it's Brian Bolland, so how can we deny greatness? We mostly liked this cover because of it's simplicity. It definitely set the creepy tone of the book in a very simple way -- and sometimes, let's face it, less it more.

Next up is the first issue of Jim McCann's new ongoing, creator owned series titled MIND THE GAP. The cover to this issue is penciled by artist Rodin Esquejo and colored by Sonia Oback. We picked it not only because of Oback's breathtaking colors, but because it's such a compelling image. It's a cover that would definitely make us look twice if we passed it on the shelf at our LCS. The image is that of the book's central character, suspended in disbelief. Really beautiful stuff.

It's hard to say anything bad about the current DAREDEVIL series in general -- we can't even knock the cover, which is why it made this week's list. Paolo Rivera delivers the full frontal picture of Kirsten McDuffie through Daredevil's eyes -- or perhaps his imagination. The two do go on a date in issue #12, although things didn't go as well as the cover would have you believe. Once again, Rivera delivers, and we couldn't be more pleased.

Finally, the cover to this week's AVENGERS VS X-MEN #3 reveals a whole heck of a lot. Up until now, Wolverine and Captain America had been playing on the same side -- but that's not what the cover seems to read. Jim Cheung gives readers a very pretty cover featuring Wolverine and Captain America at each other's throats. As for who wins? You will have to read to find out.

These are some of our favorites, what are yours? Post your favorite covers from this week below and let us know if you liked our picks! Oh, and don't forget to head to your local comic shop for Free Comic Book Day tomorrow, Saturday May 5th!
