Wednesday Cover: Solomon Kane

I haven't actually read any of Dark Horse Comics' Solomon Kane titles, but I must admit that this Mike Mignola cover for the The Castle Of The Devil one-shot, ingeniously laid out like an old Dell Comics cover, is just delightful on a whole lotta levels.

I actually reviewed this for the Dark man recently. I have to say, though, I thought that cover was really weak myself compared to the internal art.

All I can say is that I suspect we have somewhat different tastes in comic art. I consider Mike Mignola to be a master of design and macabre imagery. Plus, as I said, the whole layout of the cover appeals to me because it harkens back to an earlier era of comic book publishing that I have fond feelings for.

Perceptive eye, it does look like a homage to Dell comics. I agree it's a neat cover. I'd like to see some animation along this line.
