Cover of the Week - Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, FF & The Bulletproof Coffin: Disinterred

It's the time you've all been waiting for.  That's right, we've got your Covers of the Week ready to go!  This time around, we have some half shelled heroes, one of Marvel's newer Foundations, and a dug up pine box.  You can see all this right after the jump, so let's do it!

Ryan's Cover of the Week - Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #6 by Dan Duncan

Ryan: It's the colours that make this one pop but once you get up close there's plenty to love. The sniper scope might feel cliche but here it just reminds me that TMNT is a comic we need to take seriously. This is not Mutanimals.

Ken's Cover of the Week - FF #14 by Mike Choi

Ken: Man (or rather kid) versus god, as nice cover that shows what FF has been about the past few issues. Not only does it work in terms of scale with Franklin and a Celestials hand, but the FF logo really adds to the idea of big vs small.

Grant's Cover of the Week - The Bulletproof Coffin: Disinterred #1 by Shaky Kane

Grant: I really like this cover.  Far too many covers are guilty of being too busy for their own good, but you definitely can't make such a claim here.  The image is simple and clean, and I think lends it a certain iconic element to it.  I didn't read a single issue of the original Bulletproof Coffin miniseries, but the confidence that's on display here makes me feel like that was a mistake on my part.  And that's what a good cover should do.

Runner-Ups:  Flash #5, American Vampire #23, Unwritten #33.5

@Ryan That's not a sniper scope. That's MOUSER-VISION.
