Bursting With Entertainment!
One of the tried and true types of comic book covers is the one which seemingly breaks through the meager confines of the paper cover itself. I love visual gimmicks which toy with the very notion of the form and this 4th-world breaking technique is at the top. Perhaps the single finest example of this approach is the Atom cover above by Gil Kane. Not only eo we have two heroes involved in the break out, but one Atom is seemingly punching the other, but the Silver Age Atom might actually be in scale. The same hold true for the Doll Man cover below. Here are a cavalcade of these dandy covers. Enjoy!
