The sale was from 2 weeks ago. 

I'm thinking outside chance he never got paid that $1,625. Possibly.

Yes, but the New Universe books were released that same month, so you weren't really expected to know who that was. 

Who is it?  I still don’t know :insane:

Starbrand - who has been threatening a comeback over the past decade.

But Hey Kids, Comics! has a point, which is taken. But obviously she is one of the New Mutants, if you're not a reader. Just like this guy has to be either Cloak or Dagger, if you've never read the book. But you don't know much if you don't follow the books...I don't know. I just know that I like these covers enough to collect them.

BTW, I've seen better Cloak renditions.

As a massive fan of the Thin white duke..... I can't disagree that during his Hunky Dory era, he did it A LOT. lol

Kids these days think they are so cool Bowie did that in the 70s.

Here's a fun fact about Bowie, conveyed to me by someone who's worked for the Henson company. During the filming of Labyrinth, Bowie refused to wear the codpiece that the costume department made for his outfit. And in some shots focused on the children, whom he was standing next to, that's apparently quite obvious.

You're welcome.

Let's play a game. It's the mid-80s and you're a big Marvel fan. A new issue comes out, but OH NO, IT'S MISSING ALL IDENTIFICATION!

Who is the character on the cover? Which series is the issue even from?

Yeah. Exactly.

I like characters to look like, you know, themselves. Say what you want about the art, but that's a terrible Magik (and New Mutants) cover.

You could apply that same logic to 70% of comic characters, if only doing non-costumed headshots.  Particularly women and obscure characters like Magic.

You guys are being way too hard on that press photo of Uma Thurman.
