Cover Talk: May 23, 2017

Yesterday was full of incredibly sad news. My heart goes out to all of the families effected by the bombing in Manchester. Senseless acts of violence always hit me hard, and only helps the themes of the comics we cover resonate with me more. I feel as though I’ve addressed too many acts of terror in too short of a time, but I always come to the same conclusion: Be kind. Be a hero in your own right. Help others when and how you can – it can be a simple gesture: helping the homeless, sharing you umbrella, saying “thank you.” Acknowledge other acts of heroism. Many small decisions really can change the world…

Below you’ll find the cover of each title being released this week. Check them out. Study them. Try your best not to let your opinion of the story effect your thoughts on the cover, then vote for your favorite. If you’re like me, and can’t decide on just one, then you can select multiple covers if you would like. Following the poll for this week’s covers, you will find a poll for last week’s variant covers, and then the results from last week’s post. Happy voting!
