Twice a week I randomly generate two dates and then compare the titles I own from both of them, trying to find some covers that, with a little basic photoshopping, I can mash together, and then I force the results on you lovely people.
By the way, I admit to being HUGELY influenced by the wonderful Super-Team Family blog which has been doing this for years (and a lot better) on an almost daily basis.
Sherlock Frankenstein’s from the pages of the wonderful BLACK HAMMER and if you aren’t reading that, shame on you!
I’ve enjoyed Black Hammer from Jeff Lemire and Dean Ormston and was happy to pick up the new spin-off miniseries, Sherlock Frankenstein and the Legion of Evil.
When I glanced at the variant cover by the ever awesome Mike Mignola, I couldn’t help but think I’d seen it before, and it only took a moment for me to remember where:
The Amazing Screw On Head is a great collection of short stories but the similarity between the two main characters makes me wonder if Mignola was maybe rushed for time and re-used some old art?
Either way, they’re both great covers.
