Blake R. Sims covers 1963 3

Original cover by Rick Veitch; Image 1993. Blake R. Sims's website is here.


  1. Good example of helping you see the cover in a new way. Of course, it then makes you look at the original again and wonder just what is going on.

  2. I think I can explain what's going on.

    It's a meta-panel moment - what some call "breaking the fourth wall."

    The hero and the action are literally blasting out of the panels and blurring fantasy with reality.

    Veitch's art is an homage to Kirby's style. So, I guess we can say that Sims' cover is an homage to an homage.
