We all had different picks for this week's edition of the Cover of the Week. Eric went with Authority #9 for the absurdity of the concepts thrown out on the cover while Matt chose Dark Reign: Fantastic Four #2 for its ability to tell a story. Myself, I went with the unique artstyle and colouring of Astonishing Tales #3. You can take a look at these and our detailed thoughts on each after the jump. Feel free to suggest your own Cover of the Week, as well.
ERIC's COVER OF THE WEEK - AUTHORITY #9
Eric: Roman Centurions. Riding giant Raptors. With WWI fighter plane back up. Awesome. More comics should be like this.
MATT's COVER OF THE WEEK - DARK REIGN: FANTASTIC FOUR #2
Matt: It's a little weird that this cover is by Pasqual Ferry because he used to do a lot of Ultimate Fantastic Four covers. It looks like an Ultimate Universe comic to me, even though it isn't. On the other hand, the cover tells a tale: Reed is too busy with SCIENCE to realize that his family is possibly in danger.
KIRK's COVER OF THE WEEK - ASTONISHING TALES #3
Kirk: The colouring of this cover combined with the scratchy linework really made this cover stand out to me. Spider-Woman jutting her ass out was a little odd, but otherwise very nice looking cover. Loved the classic Iron Man armour used, too. The Extremis version just looks so generic to me for some reason.
