Comic Books Reimagined as Vintage Used Paperback Covers

Almost exactly a year ago, British designer Fonografiks (aka Steven Finch) first posted his designs re-imagining classic comic books as used vintage paperback book covers. He’s now released twenty-one in total, running the gamut from Dazzler to Transmetropolitan. The most recent one appeared last December. Hopefully there’s more yet to come.

Actor, nerd, poet, producer, writer mikl-em made his name short so you wouldn't have to. In addition to his blog you can find his writing in "Hi Fructose" magazine and witness him almost life-sized in various plays at The Dark Room Theater in SF's Mission district.

He tends to write about theater, humor, San Francisco culture and history, and stuff that's just plain weird. He thanks Scott for sharing the keys to the Laughing Squid virtual HQ and promises to uphold whatever it is that the mirthful cephalopod would prefer to be uplifted.
