The selected favorite covers from the week of February 12th included two books picked from three of our site’s reviewers
Chosen by @besottedgeek and @chefaey33, Amazing Spider-Man 39 features Spider-Man and J. Jonah Jameson in a heated debate.

@wolfcypher‘s pick: Meanwhile, on a deserted jungle island, Venom symbiote host Eddie Brock fights for his life in a futile war against every living thing crawling on the island in Venom 23.

Both of these issues were reviewed by me. Bias, much?
