More than half of THE DEMON's 16 issues begin with the
full-page/double-page open. (11 of them)
Was this because this was the best way to pull the reader into the story or was it because pages 2 and 3 were the only pages Kirby could put a double-page spread on without risking it being split in half by ads as was suggested by the perceptive Richard Onley in the letters page of DEMON #15?
The Oklahoma Sooners take on the Clemson Tigers today and Marvel released an image of the teams fighting it out comic-book style. The cover, which features a Clemson Tiger facing off against an OU pony (Boomer or Sooner, presumably), is a visual homage to Mike Zeck's cover for Captain America Annual #8, which featured Wolverine and Captain America. A cover was also released showing Michigan State and Alabama mascots battling; that cover is an homage to Jack Kirby's cover for Silver Surfer #4, which featured the Silver Surfer facing off against Thor. - Matthew Price NEWSOK.COM
