    I'd buy a newspaper for a Pia Guerra comic.

    I haven't bought one in at least four years, as I get all my news online these days, but I'd put down money for that.

    my humble attempt, walking in the shadow of giants here....

    Thank you very much for the kind comments. There were challenges over the last few weeks that I really wanted to get in on (the WW one especially) but work kept me busy, namely the Torchwood Magazine strip. Starting a new project this week, we should have something to show in a few months.

    Here's mine, sorry for being late, had some issues scanning this one in :)

    Great work everyone. I particularly like the period look of @256 and the type of @mrmcdaniel. After seeing all of these I don't think I pushed mine enough, too literal, looks too much like an average cover. Loads of character in yours @clone artist.

    Last minute, ill-conceived, and poorly executed. My specialty! :)

    Yours made me laugh heartily.

    Thanks for all the kind words, friends. I love a good Remake/Remodel challenge.

    This has been a great week - every entry had something I liked in it. Particularly loved Oxbrow (the decadent magazine for the girl-about-town), Ryan S Thomasen (the Edward Gorey approach), Brendan's (as noted before), V (taking up the new angle and smashing it), amazing ameziane (for submitting an entry with no yellow in it), Pia (need I say?), leighwoosey, Clone Artist, ooglie mooglie, robb... Yeah, I should have never tried to narrow it down - so much quality work!

    @robb:
    Bookkake. Heh.

    @pia: Damn, now I have to read a Torchwood comic!

    Everyone - splendid array as ever.

    @Cat Vincent: clever yes, but very much not my idea, and very fitting for this challenge: http://bookkake.com/

    Whew, in at the 11th hour. Not happy with the left side of the thing, but I got the light and gradations I was after, so that' something.

    ...but I thought, who does debauchery better (besides Jackie Collins, I suppose...)? Will do next one more timely.

    My friends and I have been discussing the perfection of Paul Sizer's post--stylized to the point of being symbolic rather than explicit. One friend said he could get away with displaying it on a sidewalk newsstand.

    ...and THAT is the scary power of typography. The power to show an asshole to millions and get away with it.
    But seriously, that is a unique thing, and really the basis of design; to communicate ANY message on a level that can be whisper subtle or foghorn explicit.

    Mine is still a bit clownish I feel, but as I made it, it became apparent that I maybe could get away with it. Which is scary and exciting at the same time.
    I don't feel mine was any great design, but maybe hinted at a starting point for typography's potential. Which leads nicely into this week's challenge...

    Sizer, you should get work for Millar's CLiNT magazine, because nobody hides genitals in logos like you!
