Dave Loves 90's Comics

Jun 05

Alex Chung http://alexhchung.tumblr.com/ has been crushing it with old Wizard covers today, which got me thinking about how the original bunch of Wizard covers featured a white star on purple wizard’s robe and hat (sometimes both, other times hat or robe alone) integrated into that month’s superhero illustration. That got me wondering, “What issue did they stop doing that?”, which led me looking up old Wizard covers. The answer to that question, I discovered, is more complicated than identifying a single issue number. The “robe and hat” covers become just a “hat” covers, or just “robe” covers, and then become just white stars on purple as a graphic element covers, and then the hat or robe will return in some form, and before mutating into just the color purple shows up, or maybe a star. 

Issues one through 8 are “robe & hat“‘s

9-11 becomes just purple and white stars as graphic elements. (as well as awesome airbrushing starts to get used)
