Kimberley Margaux picks out 10 current comics inspired by the glitz, grit and glamour of the 1980s
Cast your mind back to the 1980s: to the pop and post-punk icons, the science fiction and trash fashion. It’s a decade that’s ebbed back into modern culture over the last few years and some of the punchiest, most vibrant recent comics have been inspired by ’80s pop culture. This list isn’t definitive but it does illuminate some of the best titles that channel the ’80s zeitgeist. From teen cops sent back in time to gangs on blood-streaked streets and misfits fighting aliens in suburban towns, it’s everything you need to dive into the ’80s resurgence.
