The best comic book covers of the week – 27 April 2020

2 min read

If you’re an avid follower of this particular feature (HUGS!), you may have noticed that the best comic book covers of the week haven’t featured a lot of content from the House of Ideas lately. Thanks to…The Happening, Marvel’s printing presses have been shut down, with nary a sign of when they’ll be rolling out new content to any surviving local comic book shops after the pandemic dust has cleared.

With Diamond’s monopoly on distribution also exposing just how bad the situation is currently, it’s weird to see that Marvel’s usually reactive stance to comic books hasn’t copied DC’s approach to distribution that has resulted in the Distinguished Competition finding their own sources with which to ship their products. This week won’t be any different.

According to Newsrama, Marvel will be absent for a fifth week. No printed books, no digital distribution and no mention whatsoever of when they’ll be back in business. Hard times are here, especially for comic book freelancers who are losing out on their regular paydays after Marvel declared a pencils down approach to creating new content. What a strange and awful time to be alive. Until then, there are plenty of other comic books to look at!

Here’s what you can find through some digital digging (I did add some future Marvel Comics covers, just for the sake of it), this week:
