Great Covers – MASTER COMICS #16

It’s almost got more of a feeling of the flavor of World War One than the then-current WWII conflict, but this cover to MASTER COMICS #16 is another great example of the bold and clean simplicity of some of the early comic book covers. This piece is credited to Charles Sultan.

That bold yellow-orange background frames the red, white and blue Minute man perfectly, and while there’s enough background to get across the sense of the battlefield he’s racing across, the emphasis is on Minute Man’s powerful and undaunted frame. Dude’s breaking through the barbed wire and coming for the enemy, no holds barred!
