Food for thought‘[...] do not think that good design can make a poor product good, whether the product be a machine, a building, a promotional brochure or a business man. But [...] good design can materially help make a good product reach its full potential. In short, [...] good design is good business.’

This cover browser is really a great watch. Very interesting thing to see how magazines, comics, manga and such have changed through time, reflecting their era (Superman kicking Hitler’s and Emperor Hirohito’s butts, Transformers at Iwo Jima and many more). One of my favs though is the Incredible Hulk one, drawn in children books style. Reminds me of “Obluda”, a czech children’s book that appears in Monster, a great manga and anime.
Enjoy.

true man! the “star wars” and “judge dredd” covers are hilarius : ” AIEEEEEE! It’s …. the THING from the HELL PLANET!

Yup, fascinating how the comic themes changed through the years, reflecting very well the mentality of the americans, ranging from sheer simpleness to hollow sophistication.
