  1. There is a lot going on with these Mammoth Detective covers. They are layered and intricate, hiding universes of subtlety. What is the Master whispering to the famous Johnny Fletcher? Who wants who dead on that last cover? Why miss the “With This Gun, I Thee Kill” pun? Just what is happening in that No Risk Too Great cover? The expressions, the actions being taken, the choice of weapon in a lot of cases… prime examples of pulpy goodness. The detailed faces, hair and skin is something to be envied. Very high quality work. Thanks for sharing this!
