DC Comics Best Covers of the Week 5/2/2015

What a week!  The future of the DCU took a couple of left turns after Batman, Superman and Justice League came out on Wednesday and then Divergence hit on Saturday.  DC dropped a couple of bombs on fans in celebration of Free Comic Book Day and I loved (almost) everything about them.  Of course, the Convergence Event rolled on and finished up the first month with the old up and down.  However, it doesn't take a strong issue to win the coveted Best Cover of the Week Award. Nope, it just takes hard work, dedication and a lot of moxie.  Let's bring out the winners, shall we?

Cover of the Week

Convergence: Justice Society of America #1 (Dan Panosian)

This cover has been a favorite of mine since DC previewed it before the Event started.  It is action packed and oh so epic.  The only thing I don't like about it is Hawkman staring right through me.  He is boring a hole in my delicate soul.  Make it stop, Dan...Please!!!

Runners Up

Convergence: Shazam! #1 (Doc Shaner and Jordie Bellaire)

This is going to go along with this week's trend...old timey goodness.  Doc Shaner mixes a classic style with some modern aesthetics and bakes up such a tasty goulash of awesomeness. Jordie Bellaire's colors add to effect and we get to "marvel" at a cover that fits in any age of comics.

Convergence #4 (Francis Manapul Variant)

I'm a sucker for Manapul's art and this variant cover shows why.  I never get tired of the classic Kamandi, but throw in hook handed Aquaman and we have something special on our hands.  You really have to hand it to Manapul...I'm out of hand jokes. Please, led me a hand...

Superman #40 (Gary Frank and Alex Sinclair Variant)

This cover is so action packed and awesome that I only wish the story continued inside the issue itself.  Sadly, it didn't.  I guess I'll have to get Eric to do it with his action figures.  A 32 year old man playing with action figures is cool, right?
