The Color That Couldn't Die!
I was well and truly gob-smacked when I ran across the cover above in my sojourns across the internet. From Australia's Yaffa Comics, this issue of Supernatural Thrillers, offers up a truly offbeat version of some of Jim Steranko's most memorable artwork. From the debut issue of Marvel's Supernatural Thrillers, the story underneath adapted Theodore Sturgeon's "IT!". Go here for more detail on that exceedingly influential story.
Here's a chance to glom Jim Steranko's original cover, the creature appropriately green against a blood-red sky instead of an odious purple swimming in a pale blue atmosphere. Yuck!
