I had gotten a couple of requests to feature the Dr. Syn Scarecrow on the blog over the years, but I couldn't find many images and nothing ever really came together. When Jeff O'Hare recently made the request, I decided to to try once again. Jeff is a Patron of this blog, which means that his suggestions will get special consideration, so I was happy to give it another crack.
Another reason it took me so long to do a Doctor Syn cover is that I have never seen the Patrick McGoohan film that he comes from - it's tough to do covers when I know very little about the subjects. Still, I was intrigued with what I read on him, and I tried to find a copy of the movie on Netflix, to no avail. I'll have to make a point of watching it one of these days.
This isn't the first time Jonathan Crane has encountered another Scarecrow...
