Favorite Cover Lines
« on: 19 January, 2021, 03:25:36 PM »
Cover punnage is an art form, and "Hack to the Future" (from prog 1091) caught my eye yesterday as I was doing a bit of letterer indexing:




If you want to post up a favorite all you need to do is paste the following URL into img tags and swap out the "???" with the prog number: http://www.2000ad.org/covers/2000ad/mediumres/???.jpg

The Anderson ‘She knows what your thinking’ cheesecake one always made me chortle.

Not a tagline as such, but "um ... synthi sausage" sticks in the mind. (Pete Wells has a beautiful commission from Carlos of that cover with the sausage replaced by a Gregg's pasty - once he'd explained to him what a pasty was!)

Ironically, attached to the least sexy image of Anderson (and, arguably, the image that looks least like the character) ever committed to paper.
