Im no artist but i could draw a better cover than that.
Behind the dodgy covers are some hidden gems.The Mind of Wolfie Smith in colour although cant remember which title.

What’s going on with the cover of issue 11 of Spellbinders, which features inside Nemesis book 6 and Fiends of the Eastern Front?



Grindberg's interpretation of the Candida and Nostradamus (almost) smooch?

Keith did the first 12 covers, have to say I like them all!

Crazy that his style is still so instantly recognizable after all these years.

12 is particularly T-shirtworthy. What we have there is a real artist interpreting the material in his own style,  and it's different but good. Elsewhere...

Those Tom Grindberg covers are truly awful! But he has become a really great artist, it's well worth looking up his recent Tarzan work.

I actually met him at comic convention a few years ago and asked him to do a sketch of Dredd, his response was "hell no"...understandably, it looks like he didn't even know what he was supposed to be drawing back then. (I did get a great Daredevil sketch from Tom that day, however).

I'm sure this is well-known and I've just missed it, but why was Cursitor Doom renamed "Amadeus Wolf" for the Quality reprints..?

SBT
I have no idea either but IIRC he'd previously been renamed 'Septimus Drood' in some mid-1970s reprints.

To be fair, he's totally nailed the 70s Country and Western bar costume design that the series was famous for.
