THE REAL SCOOP|
Actually, the whole thing is surely posed. The old guy looks like he's up from the
print department, the other guy holding the computer must be from the art department. But it certainly
looks real enough.
Call me petty. Throw in skeptic and cynic. But I think
I would rather see bugs! You know, maybe a different one each month - sort of, like, All Bugs, All
the Time. You never run out of material, either. Then the covers don't look too silly years later.
Dexter Sear, at Insects Org has the right idea. And he does all that for free!
AND DEXTER'S WAY.....
I say, do the cover the right way, maybe spend a little time or money making
the cover distinctive, look something like (maybe) the old Scientific American covers. Use a little
something called class. Maybe then it would even become a collector's item.
But what do we know?
Dexter and I, we're just bums.
Please, no flames. I'm an old guy myself, used to be a printer,
but was never in the art dept. And I'm also not commenting on the content of these mags either, but
maybe I will later on. Most of the time I like to criticize, but that's only because it's sometimes
hard to congratulate this industry. Believe me, I congratulate whenever I can.
