Cover of the Week - Gotham City Sirens, Wolverine: The Best There Is & Batman: Arkham City

Welcome to another edition of Cover of the Week. This week is a peculiar one, as a certain famous duo steals away with two wins, on two different covers, for two different titles. It's not who you think. You are going to have to hit the jump to see the winning covers.

Ryan L.'s Covers of the Week - Gotham City Sirens #24 by Guillem March

Ryan L.: Makes me want to see a Western with the Joker as the lead. His legs shot to Hades, his guns loaded for the last time, a final stand on Main Street for the final prank. Great composition on the guns and the creepy face behind them.

Matt's Cover of the Week - Wolverine: The Best There Is #7 by Bryan Hitch

Matt: I really like the perspective used in this one, shown from inside (what we assume is) a quarantined room. Hitch does a really good job with the facial expressions, and he certainly knocks it out of the park when conveying on how gruesome of a state Wolverine is.

Ken's Cover of the Week - Batman: Arkham City #3 by Carlos D'Anda

Ken: Nice clean art from D'Anda, and a bombardment of purple hue on the cover really makes it stand out. Joker's crazy but not creepy, it makes you think Mark Hamill. And as a sidenote, the Batman logo by Rocksteady is really one of the better bat-logos ever made.

Runner-Ups:  Scalped #50, Flashpoint: Green Arrow Industries #1, FF #5 (Captian America Variant)

Is it just me, or is Joker carrying Riddler's cane in that Arkham City cover?

It looks that way, but the cane is not the same design as the cane in the recently released Riddle image. Huh, maybe Joker stole his cane and he got a new one?

"Joker's crazy but not creepy, it makes you think Mark Hamill." And that's the way it should be, he is the voice after all.

That Skottie Young cover is excellent, but none of those other covers do anything for me. I agree that the perspective is cool on Hitch's Wolverine cover, but I just really dislike his work. Beast's face looks terrible.
