1982 - Anatomy of a cover - Moon Knight #18

Sienkiewicz is at his peak channeling Neal Adams during his run on Moon Knight. You can see more of his artistic and experimental side sneak out as the run hits the mid 20s. Love this original cover as you can clear see how everything is put togther, like the caption, Moon Knight title, and the price and issue box number. Also what's great to see if the effect of the colouring. The colouring seems a bit over the top with its bright pastel flares and really sends the eye moving all around the cover, not really allowing it to focus anywhere in particular. The fighting in this scene seems almost muted.
