Cover Controversy: Cut-Outs Continue
If you know me, then you know I enjoy the cheap satisfaction of seeing the continuation of a cover trend. This has certainly happened with sock covers, a topic which I continue to beat upon like the proverbial “dead horse”. Today, I’m pleased to see that we have a new inductee into a different group: the cover cut-out gang. First, let’s review the existing members:
Firegirl by Tony Abbot. Andâ€¦
Carlos is Gonna Get It by Kevin Emerson. Now, to complete the trio:
Sixth-Grade Glommers, Norks, and Me by Lisa Papademetriou
Side by side by side:
The most recent addition is in fact, the oldest of the bunch (published in 2005). Strangely, I have yet to see a cover with paper chain people that isn’t red. Do you have any to add to this group?
