Olive Vs. Billy: Help Us Choose A Cover

December 27, 2017
   We had a Design Review meeting this morning and went over cover ideas for the next issue. We are deadlocked on these final two subjects and we need your help. If you were walking by the newsstand which cover would you be more likely to buy?



#1: Olive Oatman cover



#2: Fake Billys cover

  9. Definitely "The Girl with the Blue Tattoo." The subject matter for "Fake Billys" is intriguing (I'm just now writing a children's book about the Kid!), but the photo is unappealing to me. The tattoo cover has more newsstand "sizzle."

  11. I'm a huge Billy guy, but I DO believe it's a touch over done.
    +1 Vote for Olive!

  12. If people are not familiar with the Olive Oatman story they might just pass it by, but there have been National News stories on the high prices paid for Old West photographs. I would buy it with either cover and look forward to the next issue.

  21. 1, Olive, Girl with blue tattoo.

  22. Any BTK photo would sell more on the Newstand but that ain’t Billy. So I would go with the blue tattoo.

  23. Olive for the cover, although I'd like to read the Billy story.

  25. Olive, except the subtitle about children reads like tabloid fodder.

  29. Unless there is an amazing new provable discovery about Billy the Kid, I vote for Olive.

  30. Olive for sure. I'm pretty much over Billy for the moment. Give me something I can learn from.

    Olive Oatman, please.

  34. Looking at it from a business point of view I'd go with Billy. Olive is an equally interesting part of history, but Billy is box office.

    Like someone said above, whichever you pick I'm buying it.
