Wilderwitch’s Cover Candidates, Part 2

Collage prepared by Jim McPherson, 2016

Poster prepared by Jim McPherson featuring a number of images pertaining to Wilderwitch’s Babies

The cover for “Decimation Damnation” is finally coming together. And, yes, it will be a collage like the ‘Wilderwitch’s Babies’ poster depicted at top of page. The images that went into it can be found on the Character Companion page that recently appeared on the Phantacea Publications website.

Other than the big shot of a young-looking Witchie-type on the right of the Babies poster, though, probably none of them will make it to the final cover of “Decimation Damnation“. (The link goes to some more lynx pertinent to the mini-novel.)

Here are a few that probably will …

==>Not sure who did this painting or when, though it is signed ALV 08, which could be 1908 as easily as it could be 2008.

Ran it through the Google Image identification system without success. Recall it was taken in the same art gallery in Vienna, Austria, as the equally unidentified painting I used for the back cover of “Janna Fangfingers” but that’s about it.

(Always thought the Janna-Vetala image for FANGERS, which can be better seen here, was by Egon Schiele (1890-1918) but Google Images doesn’t recognize it either, so can’t say for sure.)

The ‘Boulder Brain’ Conqueror does not appear in “Decimation Damnation”. A character who knows that for sure does. And, yes, he does wear a boulder brain helmet just like the Conqueror did in the 1940s

<== The brain coral shot is from Playa del Carmen. It’s a poster spotted and shot there in 2014.

There’s a note re the Boulder-Brain Conqueror here. He doesn’t appear in “Decimation Damnation” but someone who could pass for him does. Unless, that is,  it really is the Conqueror.

Which would be remarkable since he was killed in 1953 by Blind Sundown ==> when he, riding Raven’s Head, dropped a prototype Hydrogen Bomb that the Conqueror made for the Soviet Union on top of him in an effort to wipe out the Moloch Sedon.

(Actually, as we learned in “Helios on the Moon”, that Conqueror wasn’t the original Conqueror. Still isn’t. We’ve been to where this Conqueror come from before, though, notably in “The War of the Apocalyptics” and “The Damnation Brigade” graphic novel.)

Which should do for today.
