Great Covers

A great STRANGE ADVENTURES cover by Neal Adams, who at this point was making a real name for himself as an extraordinary cover artist. Adams tended to color-direct his own pieces, which meant that the coloring was worked into the design, as it is here. The red of Deadman pops beautifully against the subdued greens of the background, and Adams’ trademark photo-realism is on full display on the background heads–many of whom are likenesses of DC staffers of the period.
