Alright, so it’s Thursday, and I’ve diligently gone over the releases for yesterday to bring you my top 10 favorite covers for the week!  Let’s get on with it, shall we?

10. New Avengers #3

As classic a Wolverine pose as there ever was, made all the more awesome by Iron Fist and Doctor Strange in the background.  A solid cover, one that would make me get the series if I wasn’t already.

9. Secret Avengers #4

I pulled this cover mostly because I’m looking forward to reading the issue, but the image does make you question what you’re seeing.

8. Hellblazer #270

An atypically action-oriented cover for Hellblazer, which usually feature Constantine standing around and smoking.  I love how he’s kind of clutching his chest like he needs to catch his breath.

7. Supergirl #55

Bizarrogirl is a concept so simply that I’m surprised I haven’t seen it before.  Still, as simple as it is, it drew a reaction from me.

6. Fables #97

By now you know that I like simple cover designs, and this one is pretty simple, as far as these things go, but nice too.

5. Batman: Streets of Gotham #15

About simple: this cover does it in a more eye-catching way.

4. Avengers and the Infinity Gauntlet #1

I’ll admit, this cover got selected mostly for nostalgia, as the Infinity Gauntlet was what really got me into comics, but I also like the character designs for the ones featured here.

3. Marvel Universe Vs. The Punisher #2

The Punisher with a bow versus a tribal-looking Hulk?  What’s not to love, seriously?

2. Brightest Day #8

Just a stunning drawing of Hawkgirl.  Not really looking forward to the issue much, but love the image.

1. Age of Heroes #4

Classic.  Just classic.  Do I need to say more?

And that’s it for this week.  Did I miss a cover?  Drop me a note in the comments.
