Up top, that’s Freddie Williams II and Dan Scott’s fantastic cover to Brain Boy: Men From G.E.S.T.A.L.T. #3 featuring zombie bikers of the apocalypse!
The next two images need a little explanation…
If you check out the all covers of Captain Midnight and Brain Boy, you’ll see that I, as an editor, LOVE logos that are brightly colored and highly contrast the cover art. I want the name of the comic to punch you in the face from across the room so you come over, pick it up, look at it, love it, and buy it.
Anywho, joking with designer Nick James, I said that this tendency of mine was aimed at winning “the non-existent ‘Most Diverse Catalogue of Logo Colors Used by an Editor in a Single Year’ Award.” He said he’d help and sent along the two rainbow colored treatments as a gag.
I laughed… then immediately started scheming. One day, you’re gonna see these colors on the cover of a comic I edited.
The next day, I’ll be looking for a new job. But it will be worth it! ;)
