Comic Heroes - - Contents -

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.
