5. Transformers: Prime – Beast Hunters #2

Pretty simple lists this week, mostly DC Comics, a couple Marvel entries and one Image book. But this isn’t about the publishers, or even what the books are about. This is purely about how cool I think the covers look.

All right, back again with some pretty covers. I’m still ironing out exactly how I want these posts to look so this week is organized a little differently from last week. As far the actual covers, I think I’ve got a bit more variety this week with only one Marvel title on either list, and only one DC title on the “All Releases” list. Other publishers featured this week include: Boom! Studios, Image Comics and IDW Publishing.

Alright, so I’m going to give something new a try here this week. Completely going against the saying “don’t judge a book by its cover”, I’m going to do just that, and present to you my five favorite covers from the week’s releases, first from the books I actually picked up, and then from all of the week’s new releases. Obviously this is going to be completely subjective, but I don’t comment on the art that often in my reviews so this will give you guys some insight into my personal preferences as far as comic art goes.
