Cover Characteristics is a meme by Sugar and Snark- every week a characteristic is selected and we post 5 books with that week's theme.
This week's pick- Prehistoric Settings
The rogue topics continue as Cover Characteristics is officially on hiatus. This week- with SciFi Month here I decided it was time to delve into the worlds of yore, the mists of prehistory- I've always loved the lost world trope, the idea that somewhere there is a place where ancient monsters still roam. What better time to take a look at covers that deal with those very things? So here is my look at prehistoric settings.
Frank Frazetta doing what he does best- painting a semi- nude person locked in battle with the forces of nature. His art always had a certain vibrancy.
I love this art - here's the full effect.
Frazetta - I like this one. Little touches, like how her hair sticks to the spear.
This one is distinctive although it doesn't relate entirely to the book- there's no manta ray for example shooting a beam of energy??? at the sub.
More Frazetta- as always clothing is optional!
This is actually the DVD cover I think rather than the book cover, but I like it.
