It's time for Cover of the Week, again.
I've been really pushed for time this week, and right now we're celebrating a friend's birthday. It'd be rude of me to send too long away from the others, but I've just got time to post up this little nugget. A very genuine favourite of mine, which I actually had set as my PC's wallpaper for large parts of last year. This is Steve Sampson's brilliant cover to Overkill Number Six, from 1992. This brilliant rendition of Dark Angel (Or Hell's Angel as she was at the time) is exactly the kind of reason I started this feature. It's got that British mock-graffiti-art feel which the American printings of the books from this period never really had. I'm also a big fan of the original Geoff Senior costume. Sure, I loved Salvador Larocca's re-tune, later on, but there something just a bit more classic and true to the character's sensibilities in this form. Shevaun Haldane was not clean cut. She was deeply punky, Psylocke's freaky friend.
The revamp cleaned her up a bit. I prefer her like this.
It's a great cover. Sampson did a few covers for Overkill - but this is without a doubt my favourite.
