Hey, look over there!
No, I haven't resurrected Thought Balloons after nearly a year. That would be too much like work. I have, however, launched a new blog called Comics, Covered, which as the name might suggest, is devoted to comic-book cover art and design.
In the past week or so since the launch, I've touched upon everything from puppet pattern as cadaver on the cover of Kurosagi Corpse Delivery Service to Soviet propaganda imagery on 52 #8. There's also been bits on Mouse Guard #1, Godland #12, Marvel's Civil War trade dress and American Virgin #1, among others.
So, this is a ploy to get traffic to the new blog because I've been unable to score a coveted spot on the Comic Weblog Updates page. Yeah, I'm shameless.
