Sometimes, you just don't have to say a lot about an image... it speaks volumes for itself. This one screams horror like few magazine covers ever did. Artist Brendan Lynch delivers an unforgettable image of a man whose flesh is being stripped away in what is obviously a painful experience. Never mind that he already has a large hole in his skull, exposing his brain. This is beyond an Exedrin headache.
One has to question the logic, though, of a beam or whatever-the-heck kind of syndrome that removes all flesh and tissue from the skeleton, and yet leaves the soft gray brain matter. Or in this case, purple brain matter. But, perhaps I'm expecting too much. It's still one of the coolest covers I ever laid my bloodshot young eyes upon.
This is one issue that I hope to someday own so I can read the story behind it, "The Skin And Bones Syndrome," written by Roger Elwood and drawn by Gray Morrow. But for now, I'm satisfied to view this awesome cover and share it with you. Yeah, we're bonding.
