Crazy Chase • Crazy Cover • Crazy Horse

 May 20, 2022

   It's been a crazy chase, but I think we finally have a winner for our Crazy Horse cover in the next issue:

Crazy Horse Cover #2

   To give credit where credit is due, our publisher, Ken Amorosano, suggested we do this second pass at the cover making the case that the first one, below, was a little too fire engine red and he didn't like the arrow going over the masthead, and behind the top head.

Crazy Horse Cover #1

   I did like the lightning bolt in the first layout. And I do miss the arrow which now doesn't appear at all, but either way, both covers are excellent and I think the top one is a tad more Old West photo looking which should work for us on the newsstand.

   Thanks Dan The Man for going the extra mile.

  1. Great cover! Really like your take on Crazy Horse. He had a friend Touch the Clouds who was supposed to be close to 7ft tall - there is a great picture of him, but not much ever written about him. I don't know that he was at Little Bighorn Battle but he was with CH when he died. Maybe the mental image of a 7ft warrior chasing down soldiers will spark your artistic imagination (I wonder how fast a soldier can run in Calvary boots?)
