Cool cover. :) Bought a while back but never got around to posting.

Such a great cover, by the great Bob Powell. Oddly he doesn’t seem to have received the high praise and adulation that many of his artist peers have. Maybe because he was never associated with one particular title or superhero?

  He is one of the greats, and not just for clever cover images but for the general clarity and fluidity of his story telling.  He also fairly early in his career hired assistants, obscuring what was really his and, in many cases, diluting the impact of his art.

If you found the pieces elsewhere would they be considered "married"?

Yes, probably.  Me being the genius I am, I bought many incomplete puzzles over the years figuring merge two puzzles to make one.  Problem is they had multiple punches for making a puzzle so the same puzzle can have different pieces and the registration of the punch to the puzzle artwork is not real well controlled so merging two to make 1 is pretty tough.  :cry:

You can fix that with a little judicious shaving of the pieces, but then the puzzle would be married and trimmed. :insane:

In my experience probably not. They aren’t always cut exactly the same. VERY rare puzzle as well. Not likely annother set would turn up with the pieces he needs. Great piece nonetheless!

I love Powell covers.  I just don't have many of them...but here's a few...

You know, I never noticed that connection before...but I like skull covers, so I guess that's the reason.  I would have a lot more Powell Shadows if I could find them...and I just ordered another Powell book 5 minutes ago.  I'll post that one when it gets here.  No skull on it though...

Here's a couple more Powell covers (not signed) that might not be as well known...In fact, I didn't know until 10 minutes ago...LOL
