Strange Staffels Design

In the same way that The Spider Vs. The Empire State was meant to evoke the pulp era without being designed like a pulp magazine, our Captain Philip Strange series is a tribute to the great pulp-reprint era of the Sixties, which Philip Strange never got to be a part of. From the sci-fi-tinged logo and warped type, to Strange’s resemblance to ubiquitous cover model Steve Holland, hopefully the cover wouldn’t be out of place on an old drug store rack. For each story we’ve downplayed the Eugene Frandzen art from Flying Aces in favor of new Saul Bass-flavored frontispieces. Tackling a public domain property, we felt we needed to put our own unique spin on it and give the reader a good reason to pick up our version.
