    Didn't turn out quite the way I wanted, but here's mine

    @Thom and @mthemordant-- very, very cool. The horror approach is really hard to resist, yeah? I was originally tempted to make one of my two horror-oriented, but I'll be lucky to get *one* in before the weekend at this rate.

    Hmh, it's starting to be a bit too classy for the likes of me. Let's lower it.

    Spider Weird

    I'm working on another one, entirely (hopefully) different.

    I think I lost my mind somewhere...I'll go look for it.

    @ le Golem - Is that ... is that...Stan LEE?!? Oh Christ no.

    @ Andre Navarro - Once again, you already are securely in first place for the award for: "Makes Me NOT Want To Look" award. Thank you. ( Actually, now that I think about it - you and le Golem are neck and neck. Deathmatch? )

    @ Sobreiro - You're always tight.

    @ Brendan & @ Hartter - I love the pulp era feel to these. Dead on.

    @ spedwig & Raid71 - You've both reduced the idea to iconic design perfection. Bravo.

    ( I'm surprised no one has noticed, or just mentioned, the homage in my take. Or is it too subtle? )

    I've done enough typographic design the last couple of weeks, wanted to do something a little more illustrative for this one.
    And you guys are so much better at the porno "adult" angle, so I thought I'd go for the "stuck in a dead life/Walter Mitty" form of "adult".

    Here I imagined the title to reflect that it was a publication with literary aspirations. Published in A5, aimed at the New Scientist buyer, desperately po-faced and trying to be taken seriously and keep on the shelves. The image is a bit obvious, but if the deadline was upon me this might be what I'd throw out. I suppose if I was to develop it I'd try something more Saul Bass- spider for a ribcage monotone skeleton? Spider made out of hands of the glow of a bulb through grasping fingers? Something a bit more exciting.

    @ Sizer - That's gorgeous...By the way, do you ever feel like we're sharing some sort of wavelength, man?

    OK, Lance. You win.

    @Berserker: thanks, man
    @Paul Sizer: beautiful illustration!

    @Hartter haha Fantastic!
    @Raid71 I love the death-star logo!
    @frequentcontributor I like the middle one, very awesome. Love the eclectic, grungey type
    @Lance Sells. You have cleverer brains than I'll ever have :(. Neat subtle typography.
    @Brendan McGinley and @ mthemordant Awesome pulp stylings! I like the subtle skyscraper and the saturated pinks, respectively. I shall now skulk off to bitterly resent that I could never paint half as well as you.

    Strong thread so far; glad to see lots of people sticking to the design/type angle.

    Really strong entries so far from Sobreiro, Brendan McGinley, Frequentcontributor, Raid71, Hartter, Spedwig, MtheMordnat and Lance Sells.
    Still reeling from Andre's, though. Thanks for polluting my dreams, dude!

    Thank you. I was just feeling that same jealousy towards your cover.
