Putting "great news for readers inside" on the cover of the final ever issue is brilliant.

Looks great, and I'm kinda remorseful I waited for the collected edition this time.

Check out the cover for issue 6. Did Kevin O’Neill design that logo?
 
k

Not sure what’s going on in this series, but it’s a lot of fun: Moore and O’Neill going crazy with a mash-up of just about any comic style you can think of. Plus, turns out Purdey and Patsy were the same person. Best League book for a long time.

If I remember correctly, Todd Klein has done a lot of the cover design work on the League series and from a previous (brief) chat with him online, this is likely his work (though probably working off detailed designs/cover concepts from Kevin).

It's executed really nicely, much like all of the other cover pastiches through this series. Great stuff!

It really is a lovely bit of design.

The 2010 AD cover? That won't be out for a few months, the latest issue is issue 04 from last week. It looks like this.

It's possible US and UK have different release dates, because Top Shelf publishes it in NA and Knockabout in the UK. But I definitely got it last week.

Adore that 2000AD send up! Only eclipsed by my delight at the brief return of Les Hommes Mysterieoux!

Love the fact that Kev O'Neill is going so long he's in a position to parody a 70s comic he was a huge part of.

For UK types wanting to get hold of this - I always buy my copies direct from the Knockabout Ebay shop. I've had issue 4 since Tuesday so it's definitely out.
