Covers That Didn’t Make It

Escape From Dork TowerCould have been Dork Tower #4
At the last minute, I just decided a Star Wars parody cover would work better. (I also knew that the phrase “The Fandom Menace” would probably be used quite a bit, and I just wanted to be the first on the block).
Dork Tower #: Could have been Dork Tower #7
I drew this cover in Los Angeles following the San Diego Comicon, 1999. I was just never really happy with it. I think the final version is much more elegant. This drawing *did* end up on the Christmas 1999 cover of the Comic Shop News, however.
