Cactus Comics number 1 cover by jhames34 Cactus Comics number 1 cover by jhames34
This cover...is it...Bad? Would you describe it as a...Thriller? Tell me the way it makes you feel. Dirty, Diana? Well just Leave Me Alone then! This book will be HIStory!
Went with Dave Sim's advice of making something recognizable on the cover, to grab the potential reader's eye...

I think I told you, years and several user names ago, how awesome your icon is. And it is still awesome.

So is a cactus with marshmallows for prickles.

It's a great policy following Sims' advice on making a recognizable cover. (Satirizing or borrowing a known image is a great tool -- think of Gen13 and their Janet Jackson knockoff. Or the many copies of a superhero lifting a car - aping Action Comics#1.) And, I loved your reference here! You did a good job.

But I wonder if enough people will also get it - given that Bad was so long ago. Just wondering on your behalf...

Well, my thought on it is that MJ died about a year ago, and he was all over the media, his albums went back to number 1, etc. so it's a little more likely now that it would be more recognized, than say, 3 years ago...
Thanks a bunch!
