Thought people might to come in here each week and post what they believe is the 'Cover of The Week'. Just a way of sharing art, tastes, and hopefully sparking some discussion. :)

Glad to be the first to comment on this. Does it require permission to imitate famous covers, such as Action Comics # 1 here, and more importantly if its by another company? I also noticed a high caliber writer on this title. Finally was the cover reflection to the content of this issue?.

P.S. Last weeks cover of GL # 50 by Jim Lee was my favourite.

I believe it's classed as an "homage" and gets around the copyright issues.

I think Bob is right about that. And it was reflective of the content, Buffy discovered she started to gain certain superpowers and there were a lot of comic book references included. Great read and a great image.

Think I'll plump for Wolverine: Weapon X #10

The art is not in itself amazing but I found the subject matter amusing - Mystique looks like a pre-op transgender modification patient however

Agreed, the art is horrible. But I can't help but like the fact he seems to pissed off and for once can't solve the problem by stabbing it

Yeah, I guess that's a good way of looking at it. The art doesn't always have to be incredible, just something new and inventive is a nice change from some of the more standard covers you get.
