Magnus, Robot Fighter #4. “Menace from the Depths” Cover art by Russ Manning. Underwater food-processing facilities are sabotaged by a robot that wants to destroy all mankind.
Two great things about this cover. First, check out the head on that robot! It’s a “think-rob” so of course its head is huge. Second, Magnus proves to be the exception to the rule by being a male wearing a cellophane suit.

I think my favorite part of this cover is that the Renaissance bestiary style of the art in the reference book differs slightly from the creature that makes a surprise appearance in the library. It lends one to assume the monster is fanciful until it shuffles into view, revealing itself and its no doubt murderous intentions.

Works in progress are beautiful things. These images make me think of your composition notebooks.
