Welcome to the best comic book covers of the week, where we take a look at everything that’s absolutely fantastic about the world’s greatest form of instant advertising! Usually, I like to kick off this segment with some recommended reading, and this week I’ve got a doozy for you: DC’s recent crossover with Looney Tunes.
No wait, hear me out. I know the idea of Sylvester and Tweety crossing paths with Catwoman sounds beyond ridiculous, or the very notion of Daffy Duck meeting the Joker comes off as the byproduct of a twisted fever dream. It’s anything but that, as these crossovers are the best kind of mad. My favourite of the bunch?
Porky Pig meets Lex Luthor, which is unbelievably funny, warm and heartbreaking. Conceived by the team of Mark Russell, Andrew Hennessy and Bradley Walker, Pokry’s run-in with Superman’s greatest foe isn’t just a tale of the fall, rise and re-fall of the Warner Bros. equivalent of the King’s Speech. It’s also a story of true villainy, of super-crime that’s so heinously dark, that it’s actually…realistic.
All this, in a single issue. Which you should totally go read that. While you wait for that comic to be delivered, here’s a look at the very best comic book covers of the week.
