CIH? Cover Comparison PART THREE

One day, TOMORROW Comiclink bring money.

And now:

Benjamin Hobbs:

It seems that one of the last projects Sandeep Atwal was working on while at AV was making print-ready versions of the approved CIH? covers submitted by readers. I submitted a parody of The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen based on the cover of the collected edition:

Sandeep created a parody of a different cover. It appears to be based on the sixth issue of the series:

And...they're completely different. There's virtually no similarities between them except they both parody a cover from League.

Next week: Insert an Enticing Teaser HERE.

I suspect the second one would sell worse than the first. It's bland and uniconic, unlike the first.

Dave's use of computer lettering is brutal enough, but uuggggh at the kerning on Benjamin's balloon.

David Birdsong said...

The kerning issue is because Dave likes the Joe Kubert typeface, but isn’t a typesetter. Benjamin Hobbs knows how at times I get frustrated with trying to translate Dave’s lettering into something that looks good and is also readable. It’s an ongoing process and the strips we’re doing now are approaching some of the best Dave Sim lettering. It’s all coming next year in the always improving CEREBUS IN HELL? I love working on the one-shots and we (Dave, Benjamin, Sean and me the doofus) are making them better all the time.
