I've been following the Covered blog – where cartoonists reinterpret favorite comic book covers – since it was announced, and this is by far my favorite. I'd love to see a whole series of deanthropomorphized covers.
Citing Alan Moore's Swamp Thing hardcover as an example, the author makes a good point: that simple investments like recoloring dated-looking work can pay huge dividends by increasing accessability to new fans. Obvious counterargument: watchmen. Oh, those colors.
I love Tom Gauld's work lots.
