In this article, we have selected 58 Cool Comic Books Covers and we think that they simply redefined awesomeness.  First of all, I must say that almost all of them come from the 1990s or the 2000s and they are from 6 main series: Captain America (1996, 1998, 2004), Batman (and here we include Catwoman as well), Spider-Man, The Hulk, The Punisher and X-men (I included Wolverine here).

Tool of propaganda

Since their creation in 1934, comic books have had an important impact on children and youngsters. Besides the fun part, they fulfilled other tasks as well. For example, during WW2, the Americans used them as a tool for propaganda. Comic book heroes were sometimes shown side by side with the American soldiers or they used to fight the Nazi regime in their pages.  And, of course, they’ve always won and that happened before the war ended.

The Cold War

Starting from 1946 there was a continuous ideological battle between communism and liberalism. Therefore, some comic books started to depict the high values of the American society and democracy such as liberty, justice, honesty etc. Sometimes, Russian lookalike faces appeared in those pages and they’ve always lost when fighting against those awesome American superheroes.

Will comic book survive?

In the 1990s, those who printed comic books where still making good money. Nonetheless, with the arrival of the video game consoles and the internet, less and less children were willing to spend time on reading comic books. In the 2000s, most comic books appeared in a limited edition, before or after a movie was launched. This for example, is what happened with The Hulk or Catwoman. Unfortunately, their future doesn’t seem that bright…Enjoy, be inspired and if you will like this article, then please share it with your friends or community! Many thanks! Cheers!
