Monday's post set me on a Bite Club kick, which, in turn, got me thinking about Frank Quitely's covers for the 2004 miniseries. Damn, those are things of beauty. I'd love to have a poster of all six images.

Aside from the art itself, I'm a fan of the design: the repeated elements on the left -- the final cover for Issue 1, top left, sports "milk" cartons -- and the way the Bite Club logo is cleverly incorporated into many of the images. I also enjoy that vampish (hyuk) Risa Del Toro sports a little cellulite, something you don't usually see on comic-book women. She's sexy and imperfect. Heck, all the cover figures are sexy in their own way, without resorting to blatant cheesecake, or beefcake.

To round out the Quitely lovefest, I listened to the first of a two-p
art podcast interview with the artist at Good stuff.
