From ComicsAlliance: This week marks the release of the Criterion versions of "The Naked Kiss" and "Shock Corridor," two gritty, Samuel Fuller pulp classics chock-full of special features -- including the stark, moody DVD cover by Daniel Clowes ("Ghost World," "Wilson"). Of course, the Criterion Collection is no stranger to gorgeous, illustrated covers courtesy of comic book industry luminaries, including everyone from Sean Phillips and Jaime Hernandez to Kate Beaton and Francesco Francavilla.
Indeed, a large portion of the Criterion Collection's success can be attributed to the company's unique sense of cover design. (The in-house style is so ubiquitous, it's become the subject of hilarious parody.) While the Collection employs a wide variety of talented illustrators, comic book creators have supplied some truly memorable gems.
