The Worst Comic Book Magazine Cover EVER

Seriously - the contents are interesting, the artwork inside is damned good and the package was put together by Peter Bagge who, to his credit, does list it on his site (sans cover image)  So, what gives with that cover?  To say it's more than just a tad creepy, in a certain way, is to be kind.  Everyone I know who has seen this cover simply freaks out over it.  But don't let that put you off - check out the contents and, if you see it, just remind yourself of the old adage, "Never judge a book by it's cover", buy it, tear that cover off and keep the insides, but then again, as a great philosopher called Kat once told me, "What has been seen, cannot be unseen."  No word on Peter's site as to if a second issue was issued.  We can only hope and pray that not many copies of this sold and everyone went onto bigger and better things.

In the meantime, go ahead, share your thoughts...


And here's that cover, in all it's glory!

It's not THAT bad. I've seen a lot worse.

I can only assume that you've never seen any of Kelly Jones' appalling Batman covers in the "Knightfall" era... or any of Rob Liefeld's covers, ever.
