The "new" titles of the 80 series have been overlooked, they are well worth collecting. but then, I am also keen on the current series. I believe the quality of the binding has little to do with collecting; consider Superman #1.

I wish one of the two websites would do a gallery of the woodcut covers on
the early 80's ML editions. I have about a dozen of these (mostly picked up in
outlet mall bookstores in the 90's) While the books themselves are several
steps downward in quality from the earlier series, I like these. The woodcuts
on the ones I have are all done, with one exception, by Stephen Alcorn.
The exception is a 1982 Giant edition of Moby Dick.This dj is quite
different, featuring a design "adapted from Rockwell Kent's original design," printed
in blue and black ink. It's designed on all three sides of the DJ.
Anybody know anything re: Stephen Alcorn? Are there other artists in this
vintage? Anyone share my interest in these woodcuts?
