Great Covers – SECRET SIX #2

A masterful Op-Art cover to SECRET SIX by Dale Eaglesham that recalls the work of Jim Steranko in using Op-Art images in his illustrations. What Eaglesham does here is more straightforward than the typical Steranko piece, but it possesses the same sort of impact. Keeping the background white and the spears black makes Cat-Man in the center pop as a focal point, the arrangement of the spears making a nice impact burst around him. The cover copy is slightly hard to read, but given that it’s a question about a secret, that almost adds to the effect.
