Cover Me 3

posted on January 27, 2018

I walked into comics shop one day and immediately spotted this cover across a rather long dark room. It shown like a beacon amid the overwrought, rods and cones melting eye candy that surrounded it. It’s hard for Barry Windsor Smith to do anything bad, but this one was special even for him.

When I was creating the cover for Lisa’s Story, my initial attempts were sent back with the instruction to make the cover something that would stand-out on a bookstore shelf… and I remembered walking into that comics shop.

This second cover is the polar opposite of the one I posted last time, but just as effective in its own way at doing a cover’s job. A Dustin Nguyen gem that proves that there are no rules in designing a striking cover other than the prime directive… if it looks good, it is good.
