Cover Me: Frank Miller Goes Indie

Just a quickie this week (new job, time consuming, etc., etc., etc.), but it doesn't take long to give ya a snapshot of Frank Miller's independent cover artwork from the 1980s. Check it out!

But wait, there's more! Just to make this post a little more filling (tastes great!), here are Frank's Famous Detective centerfolds from Ms. Tree #'s 1, 2, and 4 (still looking for the centerfold from #3...)

IMPORTANT NOTE: BMwC is going to be taking a short hiatus (a week or two) to give me time to get ahead on everything. When BMwC returns, it will be moving to SATURDAYS, by the way. Stay tuned!

Saw your link on Chris Nye's blog and checked it out for the first time. I dig the overall tone- great research and analysis. I put it on my reader. BTW-Thanks for the covers. I missed a lot of these.

I've always found the cover to Death Rattle #18 to be very striking. It's one of the few comics I have in my collection for the cover alone.

Damn... Now I'm going to have to find and dig out that issue of Anything Goes and that X-Men/Phoenix What If.

Was "Anything Goes" the Fanta benefit book? From when they got sued, summat to do with Harlan Ellison, I believe?
