Lots of Wildstorm on my dash and thinking about the Wildstorm integration into the new DCU made me think of one of those instances where a great book was sabotaged by the covers.
JET is a young superheroine much in the mode of Stephanie Brown/Batgirl (though Jet was the daughter of a superhero, not a super villain but otherwise…) right down to the flirting with the handsome young detective. Written by a couple of great writers, Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning and beautiful interior art by Dustin Nguyen.
The problem was the covers were done by an artist, Jason Pearson, that had nothing to do with what was on the inside of the book and so you had four issues of crotch and ass covers that did nothing to tell people what a good book it was inside.
*Sigh* Not like that happens any more, eh? *smirk*
