The best comic book covers of the week – 04 May 2020

Doing a quick browse of the comic book reddit threads on Sunday, I was amazed to discover a bit of late news thrown into the mix. Between a global pandemic and a world leader recommending the chugging of hand sanitiser as a deterrent to life, there was a death that shook the comic book world to its core.

The passing of a legend, the end of an era in satire. Ladies and gentlemen, Mort Drucker is no more. If the name doesn’t ring any bells for you, then chances are that you never spent an afternoon reading one of the cheap reprints of MAD Magazine that you could find in stores all over the world. The home of Spy Vs. Spy, the silliest of sound effects and doodles in the margin from Sergio Aragones, the crown jewel of any MAD Magazine was a send-up of a Hollywood blockbuster that was visualised through the pen of Drucker.

The master artist nailed the look and feel of any movie thrown at him, while still managing to smuggle a chuckle out of every panel with hidden jokes and gags. Drucker unfortunately passed away at the age of 92 in early April, leaving behind a printed legacy of lampoons the likes of which will never be seen again.

And on that bummer of a note, here’s a look at the best comic book covers of the week:
