Original Art - X-O Manowar #1 cover


And here is the original scan I was emailed.

Beautiful Barry Windsor-Smith cover to the first issue of X-O Manowar. Inked by Bob Layton. You can see from the original that the arm and head are pasted on. I wonder what the original pose was. Was he not shooting back? I remember reading an interview with Bob Layton where he talked about the helmet changing quite a few times for this cover.

And here is the printed version.

  1. Classic cover. Are you sure that BWS was involved with this cover? I thought it was all done by Layton
