1983? Secret Wars II ran from 1985 to 1986...
Correction noted. Thanks!
c'mon let's keep the continuity correct! please.
Yeah, sorry. My bad. I know how important these things are. It was Secret Wars II for god's sake. That comic series probably did more to direct me towards the world of Fantagraphics and Drawn and Quarterly then anything else (although that transition took a few years). It was the first time I truly felt taken advantage of by a comic company. My zombie days would be coming to an end.
Sorry, we should be talking about Derek's sweet cover. It looks like it was poured onto the page. I bet it's still wet.
Leonardi was a really interesting mainstream artist... loved that era of his work, haven't seen much from him since.
Wow! I think it's goshdarn beautiful!A pretty direct transmission of the energy of the, erm, original. Just new and yes: Awesome!
