DC Comics Best Covers of the Week 9/20/14

We are right in the middle of the Futures End Event and while I think those 3D covers are a bunch of bull pucky, that really doesn't
matter this week.  This week should be called, "Multiversity Week" because that book's covers are sweeping the awards like it think it's Ben Hur in 1959.  It truly is the King of Kings.




Cover of the Week:






Multiversity: The Society of Superheroes #1 (Guillem March Variant)

I love this cover.  I love everything about it.  The shock on the faces of the Justice league as they channel (summon?) their Golden Age counterparts is so great.  A cover with Doctor Fate and Alan Scott is always going to win for me, so add everyone else and it's a slam dunk.  While the cover may not be exactly what's in the book, Eric reviewed it (here) and thought it was pretty damn good.
















Runners Up:




Multiversity: The Society of Superheroes #1 (Frazer Irving Variant)

This is the evil variant for Multiversity.  While I don't like it as much as the one above, it's still stylish and awesome.  I really wouldn't want to run into any of these cats in a well lit, populated park, let alone an alleyway.



















Multiversity: The Society of Superheroes #1 (Chris Sprouse)

Okay, I'm running out of things to say.  This cover rocks because it has Doctor Fate and some pretty cool action.  Plus, I love the cool experiment going on on the left side.


















The New 52: Futures End #20 (Ryan Sook)

It's easy to see why I loved this cover so much.  It is creepy cool and made me realize how much I actually missed the Joker.  He's been gone for almost two years, but it seems like the Clown Prince of Crime is about to return.  Could it be in the Batman Endgame story?  My sources (by which I mean me guessing) say no.  However, I think he will be back by Summer of 2015.  Eric's review of Futures End #20 is Here.












Cover Song of the Week: Land of a Thousand Dances by the WWF Superstars

This video has everything.  Rowdy Roddy Piper, the Iron Sheik, Meatloaf on drums...so bad and yet, so, so, so good.  Enjoy and see you next week.

I was going to trade wait after that first issue, but the sprouse cover made me buy this issue.

Nice. I wish they took as much care and effort in the Futures End covers.
