HOTWIRE #2

Cover for HOTWIRE #2, Glenn Head's anthology of alternative comics, published by Fantagraphics Books. This image was meant to reflect and pay humble tribute to the great, great cover art of old pre-comics code authority comics like EC's CRIME & SHOCK SUSPENSTORIES - those gritty and graphic illustrations pumped out by Al Feldstein, Johnny Craig, Jack Kamen, and Wally Wood. The concept here quite literally ties in with the book's title, obviously - a conceptual approach that, under almost any other circumstances would make me squirm, but because of the unique circumstances of this project, seemed to work well with the gritty attitude and feel that Glenn was looking for.
