Jareth and Ziggy Stardust



Like many, I was very sorry to hear about the passing of David Bowie.  His music was big during my high school years - I remember singing "Golden Years" in Rock Ensemble - and I have remained a fan to this day.  The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars is one of those perfect albums, not a bad track on it.  I also enjoyed his work as an actor, from The Man Who Fell To Earth to The Prestige. May he rest in peace.

I just finished watching Labyrinth for the first time in 30 years. Terrific pairing here.

To be read at maximum volumes.

If you want another cover with fedora-and-trench-coat superheores, may I suggest the Red Panda (Decoder Ring Theatere) as another member of the cast?

Easily one of the weirdest and greatest covers you've done yet. Thanks.

An amazing and very clever tribute - thanks from a fellow Bowie fan (hope you don't mind that I will use this as my new screensaver)

I could almost believe you read my mind, Ross. I was going to suggest a tribute to David Bowie utilizing the cover of Golden Age FLASH COMICS v.1/#24 ("Flash vs. The Spider-Men of Mars")!

But, you not only beat me to it. You also (without knowing it) went me one better. Brilliant! :-)

RIP, David.
