I really love this variant cover Brandon Graham’s done for Joe Keatinge and Leila Del Duca’s new comic series, Shutter, so I put together some references images which it reminded me of. The band running along at the top is an homage to Herge’s Tintin books, which have a band scrolling across the top of the cover, along with Tintin and Snowy’s heads in profile, looking out at the reader. Not all the Tintin books have the band-some editions carry it and others don’t.

The scanned photographs of the camera instantly being to mind Katsuhiro Otomo’s advertisements for Canon in the 80’s, which took a similar mixed-media approach. Otomo drew a couple of characters for the ads- a girl and a guy, who were shown holding and using the Canon camera, but the camera itself wasn’t illustrated- it was a photographic scan of the actual Canon T70 model.

The crocodile bellboys seem to ring a bell, but I’m not sure what- Spirou?

Anyway, I love the cover; I love that Graham has such a fun approach to this sort of thing and makes it work with ease; that he’s able to take a clutch of diverse influences and then draw a lovely lady in that distinct, soft style of his and make the whole thing fresh and his own.

「童夢」連載初回の扉絵。まとまったときに新扉絵になったせいか、掲載後まったく見ないのでUP。

This is Katsuhiro Otomo, but I’m not sure which story. There’s a story here on this bibliography I have called ‘Space Godzilla’, but as far as I can tell none of the writing on this page looks like it says that. Google translate says this is the “Frontispiece of “Dome” series”.

I’m continually wowed by Otomo’s flair for architecture, landscape, interior design, lighting … his environments are really something special, showcasing his intricate linework and a highly dramatic sense of form.

Here are some of the key locations of Akira, issues #1-16.
