Star Trek v2 #17 - Walt Simonson cover

Walt Simonson
Star Trek v2 #17, 1981 - Already crowded by a large television ad, Walt Simonson's cover strategically places a handful of elements. The portraits of Captain Kirk, Mr. Spock and Dr. McCoy fit snugly on the left. A sun-like planet frames the spaceship Enterprise while its perimeter erupts. Although simple in design, Simonson's cover succeeds in creating a harmonious whole. Other artists in this issue include Ed Hannigan, Tom Palmer and Dave Simons. This is number 1 of 1 Star Trek issues with Simonson art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Simonson or Star Trek issues. See also this blog's Simonson checklist
