NEW!! Born Apart!

Hey there! It’s said that thinking in new patterns helps the mind to stay limber. In that spirit, we’re presenting a NEW BEAT FEATURE called Born Apart! Here we’ll post two completely unrelated images just to get the old braineroo doing some jumping jacks. We’ll search high and low for the most RANDOMLY UNCONNECTED COMICS COVERS we can find. So here we go and let’s get thinking!




  1. The phrase “ride that log” doesn’t come to mind when I look at *either* of these covers.

  2. majorjoe23 says:

    The guy on the horse has a really long boot.

    That’s what’s happening there, right? Some sort of foot fetish?

  3. Synsidar says:

    I think the horse’s weird grin is significant.


  4. In the immortal words of Hank Venture, both of these pictures are a little too creepy uncle.

  5. You know, until Synsidar mentioned it, I had never noticed the horse’s grin.

    “So tell me, Bobby. Do you like cowboy movies?”

  6. Al™ says:

    She’s a greenhorn. And her skirt tends to ride up on her.

  7. Hilarious!

  8. Where’s the “Like” button on this thing?

  9. Steven Taylor says:

    Did Greg Horn do both covers? “The Rifleman” is rendered much more realistically and has a better log.

  10. The Rifleman’s in charge, but little Billy’s carrying all the irony and doing all the heavy lifting.

  11. Dasbender says:

    The similarities in content and/or theme didn’t even register at first. All I noticed was that both covers were designed using a similar grid — the left third of the page is a vertical figure, the logo is in the upper right, and the bottom right has a horizontal element.

  12. Dasbender says:

    Oh, and the center of focus of each cover (little billy’s face and Shulkie’s breasts) is in the same location.

  13. One’s got a horny horse, the other’s got Chuck Connors peeing his pants.

  14. Paul G. says:

    Scott Shaw posted that Rifleman cover almost a decade, huh? Glad I’m not the only one who still laughs like an immature adolescent at the thought of it.

  15. The guy in the vest must shop at the same store as Fred Flintstone.

  16. Is that a gun in your pocket, or are you just happy to see me?

  17. That She-Hulk series was pretty funny and really well drawn. Great page layouts, nice, expressive clean line art.
