Cover Tease for FTA Collected

In March of next year, all the WFTers (Wait For Trade) will hopefully spring for the book collecting From the Ashes. I hope everyone will buy it, actually. As a creator, I sometimes feel a tingle of guilt when something I do comes out serialized and then I want people who already bought it to buy it again. But as a fan and consumer myself, I say, "Hey, I do it all the time." So, guilt absolved. Anyway, here are a couple of rough thumbs of the cover, which will be a wraparound. I wanted to pay homage to the great "merry chase" posters that Jack Davis did in the Sixties and Seventies.


The Amazon listing has an incorrect page count (it will be longer, because of the nifty bonus section; details to come) and cover art. I guess this is a place-filler until I deliver the real cover art.

Looks good, Bob!! Who is that little character flying overhead and to the left on the cover? It looks like it says "Nodoze!"

As they used to say in those Time Life TV commercials, Rick, "Read the book."

The cover looks very promising!
I'm ashamed to say I had to look Jack Davis up. Now I've spent ages going through chunks of his art all over the web. Great stuff.

Better late than never, James. Davis is a bit of a hero of mine. His work is so fluid and lively. Maybe, when the time comes, my cover will end up on your blog (though hopefully not in the company of Tutis and Changeling Press).

Snazzy! Yeah, I figure if I bought the Minimum Wage collections after getting the individual issues, I might as well do the same with FTA. Still need to read #4...
