DC Comics Best Covers of the Week 11/30/16
I just woke up from my Thanksgiving nap, and it's New Comic Book Day already! And you all know what New Comic Book Day brings, don't you? No, not just a negative balance in your bank accounts, it brings us new comic book covers! DC didn't put out a lot of books this week...in fact, they essentially put out five covers in total, which makes my job a lot easier! So here are this week's covers, save for the cover to the New Talent Showcase which was just ludicrous.
This...I do not like this at all.
JLA #10 variant
John Romita, Jr. & Danny Miki
A fairly uninspired, silly-looking cover that is pretty well-balanced and inked.
Batman Annual #1
David Finch & Brad Anderson
This is a nice picture of Batman. If you are looking for a nice picture of Batman, this is a candidate.
Superman Annual #1
Jorge Jiminez & Alejandro Sanchez
Now we're getting somewhere! Not only am I a huge Swamp Thing fan, this is one heck of a dynamic-looking cover!
Suicide Squad #7 variant
Bermejo has actually been doing the variants on this whole series, but I don't always pick 'em. This time, his rendition of Katana won the day, and not just because of the slim offerings. I am such a sucker for things reflecting off Katana's blade.
It occurs to me now that I might have supplanted the regular Suicide Squad cover for that ugly Bryan Hitch shit at the beginning, but meh. I'm done already, I'm not turning back.
