10 Most Disastrous Comic Book Misprints

One little typo or bad drawing is all it takes to ruin the reputation of a comic book forever.

Marvel Comics

Comic books are an important art form that have influenced a great deal of modern pop culture. Ever since the first golden age of superheroes we've been treated to a medium that embraces risks and paves the way for iconic characters that endure for decades.

With such talented writers and artists having worked on our favourite comics over the years, there's almost endless great stories to look back on and enjoy. There's also some downright embarrassing mistakes...

It only makes sense that out of the tens of thousands of comic books that have been published, some of them will have a mistake that makes the writer or artist look incredibly foolish. Everyone's human, including the editors that these disastrous comic book misprints slipped by.

Whether it's a misspelled word that changes the meaning of a panel, a drawing that's inconsistent with everything that came before it, or a racial slur accidentally inserted into the mouth of the world's greatest mutant, some comic book misprints are particularly ugly when you look back at them.
