Iron Maiden ‘comic’ covers

Every guy my age has a soft spot somewhere for Iron Maiden‘s covers (some of the music wasn’t bad either but I dipped out around ‘Somewhere in Time’). Their mascot, Eddie, has been with them through thick and thin, morphing and warping into new identities with each album and I just came across these two designs that ape classic sci-fi comics of the 60′s. I’m not sure if these were designs that didn’t make it as there seem to be more traditional versions of the same titles with Derek Riggs‘-style airbrush images too. But if you’re going to do the ‘comic’ look then this is how to do it.

I also found this cover in 3D and couldn’t resist posting it

  1. The comic book images are from the “El Dorado” single, designed by Anthony Dry.

  2. actually, final frontier was a pretty good LP. seems that loads of old bands are doing well these days.

    i wonder if the “matter of life and death” lp cover works with the Master View 3D Glasses?
