This painting has been loose in my morgue without notation of artist. My apologies to whomever the artist may be, but it's a lovely homage to Holbein's portrait of King Henry viii and I'm guessing that is a feline Jane Seymour fronting His Royal Puss.
And below, for comparison sake, the original iconic portrait by Hans Holbein the Younger, 1540.

I'm amazed and flabbergasted that some lines of ink on paper can create such magic as this image does, by Maurice Day. Flabbergasted.

I don't normally buy a comic just for its back cover, but I was really struck by the features of this photo. The title of the comic was Supermodels in the Rainforest, an unfortunate title— but certainly descriptive of the story spread out over three issues.
"Eight supermodels fight to save the rainforest from complete annihilation. Join Raine, Moniqua, Virginia, Lolita and the other supermodels in their quest to stop the rampant exhaustion of Earth's resources."
'Course the paper for the print-run used up a few trees, but hey—it was worth it to get this photo.
Yoshitaka Amano has a golden age sensibility in his design for lithographs that is admired by legions of fans worldwide, and adapted here to a comic book cover. I wish more comics would tap on this sort of work. That might bring a some of us self-exiled geeks back to the fold of buying comics every week.
