I love how readable these images are. All cover art should be this clear and narratively enriched. The best thing about these covers, other than the beautifully reserved drawing style, is how visually compelling the content is. Going through my mind is "what the hell is going on?" The content would register as insane if it weren't drawn so matter-of-factly. Everything is drawn with the attitude that these strange things are all completely normal. They succeed because they make me want to open up the book and find out what is indeed going on.
