Nice cover Bob. Smile If I may make a few small criticisms:

The black surrounding the Doc Savage title logo on the front cover isn't actually black. I can see on my screen that you cut out a portion and pasted on the front. Adjusting the levels will fix that. (you may want to calibrate your screen).

The title font is a custom job, but there may be some fonts that approximate it better for the spine text than the Arial or whatever generic sans-serif font that you used. Maybe try Albertus?

Good point.  I thought I adjusted it enough, as on my screen I could discern not the difference.  I will fix that.

I used WhatTheFont site and came up with Interstate Compressed Bold.  It looks pretty close to the old spine covers, which were very bland.  Though the "Slark" portion could use some tweaking?  But I will give Albertus a try, just to see the difference.

Might also tweak the positioning of the back image of Doc and his Fab Five Crew.

Thanks for the tips.  Smile

I adjusted the black around the front cover Doc Savage logo.... I can not see the difference on my screen? Can you?

Cleaned up around Doc's head.  Adjusted the rear Fab Five pic.  Altered the spine font slightly for "Slark", otherwise kept the font the same as it is very similar to the Bantam font used.   Wink

I'm gonna wait and put all the 1080p episodes on a  blu-ray when they finish the ST:C series. Maybe with a bionicbob designed cover? Wink

If you share the blu-ray, I will "make it so"!  Big Grin

With STC concluded, it's time to "make it so"! Wink I was thinking about mking a 50GB disc with all 11 episodes on (for simplicity) so a blu-ray cover with some basic episode-info on the back would be great.

Working on some cover art, hopefully will post by the weekend. Wink

For those who put all 11 eps on a single disc....
(though I wonder if I should tone down/lose the 50 Anniversary glow?)

Also working on a 2 Volume cover set, should be done by tomorrow.
