Screw Covers

Reader Jeff Flowers alerts me to this infrequently updated site from illustrator Danny Hellman:
http://screwmagazinecoverart.blogspot.com/ . Looks like he's been averaging about two posts per month since May. Still, they're all interesting. Each post reprints a cover from the infamous and legendary SCREW Magazine (or newspaper really) and gives some background on the artist, the publication and how Danny came to have these copies (a bizarre and sad story) of the covers. As Wally Wood did a number of these it's no surprise to see one here already but go further and there is also an interesting piece on former Woodworker Paul Kirchner who apparently did a number of them whilst moonlighting with the transparent pseudonym, Kurt Schnurr.
