OMEGA: THE UNKNOWN #7 (of 10) Written by JONATHAN LETHEM & KARL RUSNAK Art by FAREL DALRYMPLE, PAUL HORNSCHEMEIER & GARY PANTER Cover by GARY PANTER You know a super hero's in trouble when he resorts to drawing a comic book to try to solve his problems! Omega The Unknown #7, on top of the usual stellar array of talent, features special guest-star creator Gary Panter, known for his work on a legendary children's show, Frank Zappa's album covers, and RAW Magazine -- but he's never been between Marvel's covers before. Tune in!

So I’m looking through the Marvel Comics offerings for April 2008: Dull, Dull, and oh yes Friggin’ Dull! And then out of the blue I spy the above cover by Gary Panter who did some amazing work back in the 80s for RAW Magazine, and also did a great cover for an album by Frank Zappa too. The cover art is for Omega: The Unknown #7 which stars a super hero who resorts to drawing comic books to solve his problems. Someone at Marvel has some good taste! This issue is now on my “must buy” list.
