OUR STORY THUS FAR: Months ago, Alan Moore traveled to Portland to discuss comics with his fellow comics creators. Today he’s having coffee with Brian Michael Bendis…

Every Thursday, each staff member will chose his favorite cover of the week to showcase here.

She smiled as she opened it so I could see
She said, “Baby, you’re so dumb! It’s just to COVER me!”
