Swipe? Homage? Serendipity?
The top two issues are Dylan Horrocks' Pickle issue 9 & 10.
The bottom two issues are my b-one issues 3 & 5.
Was this an intentional swipe? Did I see some great design and bastardize it? I cannot truthfully say. It's been quite a while, but I've had a resurgence of admiration for Dylan Horrocks. Digging up these issues of Pickle to cover on the podcast I immediately noticed the similarities. I love these Pickle issues, the story the artwork, the paper and yes the cover design.
As you can tell the Horrocks Pickle cover design is far superior. It must have ingrained itself in my subconscious. There is also the EC Comics cover design connection but I think the Pickle/b-one similarities are closer together.
So did I swipe? Is it a homage? Serendipity? You decide.
