The best comic book covers of the week – 25 September 2018

2 min read


Another week, another batch of comics! And another chance for me to sell you on what I’m currently reading. While I got a start in comic book enthusiasm at a young age with everything from Baby Huey to Superman, I still have a very soft spot for one of the finest exports to ever hail from  the United Kingdom: 2000AD.

Back when comic books were still experiencing a boom from the usual capes ‘n tights escapades, 2000AD was making an effort to provide stories that were light years ahead of the established competition. You had stalwarts such as Judge Dredd, Strontium Dog and Nikolai Dante, but you also had these amazingly experimental adventures between them. Alan Moore’s Chrono Cops, the gritty hard edge of Button Man and the Bendatti Vendetta just to name a few.

The fact that these stories were available weekly in perfect bite-sized chunks of zarjazz entertainment for a steal of a price, made 2000AD well worth the investment. These days, I’ve got a digital subscription for my weekly dose of thrill power, which suits me just fine because as much as I’d like to, I just don’t the space to house several thousand issues.

So if you’re looking for some uniquely British storytelling that combines crazy twists with stellar art, 2000AD is still blazing a path forward in the comic book medium. With that being said, let’s move on to the main event and see some of the best comic book covers of the week!

      Well, the current version of Moon Knight is currently kookier than a bag full of honey badgers. That dude’s mental space is *not quite lekker*.

        He’s always been crazy, it’s what sets him apart from Batman. IMO, anyway.

        If he’s even crazier now, I suppose the Cthulhu thing makes sense. The more one knows, the crazier one gets.
