Incredible Hercules and Fables took our top honours for Cover of the Week this week. Hit the jump to see why.
Matt & Kirk's Cover of the Week - Incredible Hercules #136
Kirk: This cover pretty much speaks for itself. You've got Thor and Hercules wearing each others costume, both locked in combat and it's stunningly depicted by Rafael Albuquerque. Does exactly what a cover should do - get you exicted and wanting to read more about the issue while still being relevant. Now, all that's left is for Marvel to release a poster of this one for me to own.
Matt: I believe we have been raving about this cover ever since it appeared in the previews months ago, but goddamn if that is not one awesome cover. Totally eye-catching, iconic, and extremely well done. Albuquerque has been hitting all the right notes with his Herc covers.
Ryan's Cover of the Week - Fables #89
Ryan: James Jean had a few bold, disturbing covers during his tenure as the cover artist on Fables, but few were quite as memorable as this creepy image from Joao Ruas. This is one captured my attention right away and has haunted me ever since.
Runners-Up: Secret Six #14, Nomad: Girl Without a World #2 & Anna Mercury 2 #2
