Miracleman #24 - Barry Windsor Smith cover

Barry Windsor Smith
Miracleman v1 #24, 1992 - Young Miracleman floats alongside a column of balloons wafting toward the title's logo. A celebratory theme pervades this colorfully painted cover by Barry Windsor Smith. The almost jewel-like palette is muted to allow the entire masthead to come to the fore. The title typography gets a bit lost on the lower right but doesn't detract from this competent effort. Neil Gaiman nears the end of his run, initially taking over the series from Alan Moore. This is number 2 of 2 Miracleman issues with Smith art and/or covers.
