And as the weekend draws to its close, we leave you with our picks for Covers of the Week. This time around, there's an exceptional force and a malt shop trio for your viewing pleasure. So check that jump to see these beauts, along with our honourable mentions for the week!
Ken's Cover of the Week - Uncanny X-Force #3 by Kris Anka
Ken: Nice contrast on this cover. Crazy Bishop allows for the bright lights, and instead of just awkward posing there's a reason for Betsy to be in her ninja pose for the reader, because she's trying to get away from Bishop. You also have two odd colors duking it out, a teal color and borderline pink, which is something I haven't really seen before, and it works.
Grant: Now this is a fun cover. A wonderful allusion to Archie Comics, and I kind of love how goofy Spike and Angel are, while Faith is completely fed up by them. I also enjoy the surprisingly appropriate parallels between the Archie and Buffy-verse. Not only is this a visual treat, it makes you think (at least a little bit).
Runner-Ups: B.P.R.D. Vampire #1, I, Vampire #18, Young Avengers #3
