Because I’ve been up to visit friends in Virginia and today, barring some disaster, I’m at Mysticon (TYG holds down the fort and minds the puppies). Plus TYG was off Monday, so I took some of it off too.
The big accomplishment was that I finally got the kinks out of the Atlas Shagged cover. Surprisingly simple, I just had to find a cover design that matched the size of the image I wanted to use. So next month, it’ll be out! Otherwise nothing much to mention. So let’s go to my perennial fallback, cover art:
The Silver Age Suicide Squad wasn’t much to read (which didn’t stop me buying a TPB recently), but I do think that’s a strong cover by Ross Andru and Mike Esposito. They really capture the shock of being very small and very helpless.
Murphy Anderson provides the cover art for this one, which I posted a few years ago. What a hook for a young reader.
Here’s one of Marvel’s horror/monster covers, again by Kane.
And I’ll close with another Kirby cover because unleashing something called “Shagg” is inherently funny.
