Doomsday Album No.6: The Demon/Merlin photo cover

As mentioned a week or so ago, the first 8 issues of The Demon were reprinted in various issues of Doomsday Album.

I neglected to mention that the cover to the first issue in this run is a photo cover based on the splash panel to The Demon #1, featuring Merlin.

The majority of the Doomsday Album covers are painted images, however there are also some photo covers. They are in general generic enough to doubt they were solicited specifically for their respective issues, yet at least another 2 or 3 covers do appear to be related to the lead features.

I have to say, photo covers never appealed to me; they didn't leap out from the other comics on the stand -- if that was the intention. I honestly think they had the opposite effect on me.

It's interesting these guys would set up a photo-shoot for the cover of a cheap reprint comic... A conventional cover would be less trouble, surely, not to mention far less expensive.
