Miracleman #23 - Barry Windsor Smith cover

Barry Windsor Smith
Miracleman v1 #23, 1992 - Toward the end of this series, Barry Smith executes a fairly minimalist layout (perhaps too much so?). The title character is portrayed in neoclassical pose, reminiscent of Michaelangelo's David. The figure's placement nicely counterbalances the double-M logo on the upper right corner. Just below, the ornate typography conveys a sophisticated feel, complementing the understated story by Neil Gaiman. Other artists in this issue include Mark Buckingham and D'Israeli. This is number 1 of 2 Miracleman issues with Smith art and/or covers.
