All right people, here’s the deal: my editor and I have a disagreement about whether this cover needs dialogue or not. In general, I like balloons on covers — the silver-age of it appeals to me. That said, I’m afraid of it being too heavy-handed here.
(Anybody recognize the homage in this cover? Captain Marvel button to the first right answer. )
Now, some would say that Wacker is THE EDITOR and as such, he’s going to win this little scuffle one way or the other — and some would be right — BUT… he’s been kind enough to allow for some public debate.
So… what say you. To balloon or not to balloon?
To balloon…definitely. To me it really looks like she’s shouting something, so it looks odd to have it silent.
