How much do you love Marvel's Strange Tales anthology? The mixing of independent talent with these mainstream comic icons is truly something to behold, and it looks like Marvel is continuing that with the recently leaked cover to the second volume's collected edition.
Cartoonist Paul Hornschemeier recently released the cover he designed for Strange Tales II (as you can see on the right) , which features Hornschemeier's design sensibilities with the art of Kate Beaton. Hornschemeier calls Beaton "one of the best, most pitch-perfect cartoonists working today," and said he knew she wanted her work on the cover even before he started going through the book's contents.
Make with the clicky to Hornschemeier's blog to see the cover at a larger size as well as the back cover and more thoughts on the whole project.
