DC Comics Best Covers of the Week 9/28/16
Cover Girl! Put the Bass in Your Walk
Another Wednesday is done, and that means it's time to assess the week's comic book covers and assign them arbitrary values. In the post-apocalyptic future, comic book covers will be the only form of accepted currency, so be sure to hoard them! Throw away the interiors if you lack space, the covers are all that matters. Why do you think publishers accept only the torn covers and not the whole book when accepting returns? They're no idiots! They intend on replacing the Federal Reserve after humanity near annihilation.
Batman Beyond Rebirth #1 variant
This cover is just so crazy, looks more like a horror comic than a superhero book.
Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #5 variant
Somehow Guy Gardner looks more authentically Ginger here than usual.
I love a cover like this that tells a complete story in one picture. Or at least implies a story.
Suicide Squad #3 variant
Though this scene doesn't happen in the pages of the book, it is too great to pass up.
Titans #3 variant
Alex Ross? Paging Alex Ross? And I mean that as a compliment. Great composition, there are other similar covers stretching back to the Golden Age, but this looks more sinister because the villain is in shadow.
