Behold, alternate cover art by Kim Herbst, the woman with the golden hand. And silver tongue. And, I don’t know, possibly a copper foot. I didn’t ask about that because she probably wouldn’t tell me, and frankly it seemed rude, especially after I inquired about the tongue and hand made of precious metals. But anyway, here’s her alternate cover for Dane Curse. I’m still married to my Dan Strange original, but I’m just saying that on occasion, when I make love to it, I think about this one. Sexy cat sound!
Pour this in a glass and drink it in. It’s the second in the four part series by Kim Herbst capturing various moments in Dane Curse. This one, for those who’ve read it (and actually, those who haven’t as well), is the moment when Dane finally uses his Kapowitzer. Swanky, right?
Feast your eyes on a still shot so sweet it makes the Gummy Venus de Milo seem like a sour ball dipped in milk left on a radiator for a week. It’s drawn by Kim Herbst, artist extraordinaire, and for the uninitiated, this is Lynx with her henchmen in Henchmen’s. The bad news is, now that you’ve seen it you can never see it again for the first time, but Kim’s got three more pictures from the novel, so… you know… there’s a silver lining.
The fine folks over at Pulp Covers have tossed Daniel Strange’s work on Dane Curse up on their site. Stop by to check it out, as well as the metric ton of old school covers from the classic days of pulp detective novels. Unless you’re not into amazing pencil work, evocative art, and overall awesomeness, then, I don’t know, here’s the original hamster dance. Go nuts.
