Cover variations, Issue 133

When we’re planning a new issue, choosing the perfect cover is always a battle. A lot of time is spent choosing our content, and we search for images that can complement but not necessarily inform it. For us, the perfect cover is open to interpretation and that means we normally go through quite a few different versions before we settle on the right incarnation. For Dark Things are Bright, we chose Finlay Cramb’s skull quickly, but our designer David Gilchrist (davegilchrist@blueyonder.co.uk) gave us a few versions that were very close to making the cut. In the end, we went for the most classic of his designs, but these two almost made it.
