DC Comics Best Covers of the Week 1/31/15

I'd love to say that it's Super Bowl Sunday, but I don't think anyone but Marshawn Lynch is allowed to do that, so...welcome to the Best DC Covers of the Week.  What better way to pass the time before the Big Game than checking out some cool covers for books such as The Flash, Batman and Deathstroke.  There were so many books this week that it was tough to narrow them down, but I like these the best.  As for the game, I'm going with the Patriots over the Seahawks 21-17.  I'm an Eagles fan so I'm sure I'll be wrong.  Enjoy the covers.

Cover of the Week

Deathstroke #4 (Tony S. Daniel and Tomeu Morey)

Deathstroke in Gotham with a few days to kill is a great concept by itself, but throw in Harley Quinn and we got ourselves a party.  This cover has so many cool things...bats, blimps, guns, swords and again...Harley Quinn.  I'd put her and that crazy hammer against Slade any day of the week.  Awesome!

Runners Up

The Flash #38 (Brett Booth, Norm Rapmund and Andrew Dalhouse)

I'm a huge Flash fan and an even bigger Brett Booth fan, so I guess that explains why his covers keep showing up in this column.  This month's not only looks great, but shows the reader what's cool inside...Mirror Master, Overload, Selkirk and Future Flash.  Sure, Wally is nowhere inside, but it's nice to see the little guy now and again.  My review for the issue is HERE.

Batman #38 (Greg Capullo, Danny Miki and FCO Plascencia)

This one almost made the top pick, but Batman holding those hands just freaked me out too much.  I'm a wimp, I'm sorry.  I do love the shadow of the Joker laughing and taunting Batman in the background.  I'm still not completely sold on the Joker being immortal, but I have no problems at all with Greg Capullo's art on the cover or inside this book.  It's plain awesome.  My Review for the issue is HERE.

He-Man: The Eternity War #2 (Stjepan Sejic)

I'll admit that in the 80's, I wasn't a huge He-Man fan, but I loved Dungeons and Dragons, Conan and even Krull.  Yes, I'm the one guy who liked Krull.  This cover takes me back to those times when I would grab any book that looked remotely as cool as this and read it no matter if it was good or not.  Trust me, this book is good and the cover is awesome.


  1. I'd have to go with CATWOMAN #38 for Cover of the Week. Jae Lee´s covers on CATWOMAN have been outstanding and this may have been the best do far.

    I preferred MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE to most properties in the 80s (save maybe TRANSFORMERS) but He-MAN would have been even cooler if he fought with the Glaive.

    1. I'm not a big Jae Lee fan, but that was a pretty cool cover. The reason I didn't put it on the list is because it was a bit too generic as far as what the book is about. It's better as a stand-alone drawing then a specific cover. Of course that's just my opinion.
