Best Comic Covers of the Week: 8/3/12

Check out some of our favorite comic book covers for this week!

First of all, there were a lot of really great looking covers this week and it was really hard to choose just a few. These are some of our favorites, and we know you're likely to disagree, so if you find one you really love, be sure to post it in this article's thread.

First up is Jill Thompson's cover to BEAST OF BURDEN: NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH #1. How artist Jill Thompson manages to successfully give these animals human expressions, I really can't say, but it's executed brilliantly. I love that there is something evil lurking in their shadows -- it's fantastic imagery.

It might be because HAWKEYE #1 was one of our favorite comics this week, but there's something about the cover to the first issue that really struck us -- in a good way. Maybe it was because the image is so linear. The simplicity and the use of only three basic colors really caught our eye and is a great reflection of David Aja's beautiful interiors.

Todd McFarlane's homage to his past work is pretty evident on the cover of SPAWN #222. If you do a side-by-side comparison of this cover and THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #316, you'll probably be pretty impressed. It's a great tip of the hat to those who have been following McFarlane's career, and we thought it was a great image.

The cover to this week's DAREDEVIL #16 is brilliant and is a perfect reflection of the underlying storyline we've been seeing in the last few issues of DAREDEVIL. They say a picture is worth a thousand words, and the cover to DAREDEVIL #16 is no different.

Mike Allred goes out with a bang with his cover to the final issue of iZOMBIE, #28. He delivers a unique and really beautiful image that captures the elements of what's inside.
