Suddenly, Books Seemed Unimportant by John | Apr 14, 2015 | Blog | 4 comments Art by Art Cappello & Dick Giordano from the story “Campus Crush” in FIRST KISS #1, 1957. Meanwhile, back in the present… See the revamped version of this art and with new, funny dialogue in today’s Last Kiss Comic. 4 Comments K on April 15, 2015 at 1:39 pm Never saw a book with the title on the back like that. John on April 15, 2015 at 1:42 pm I don’t know why, but this title/subject-on-back-cover trend happens a lot in comics. pbarnrob on April 15, 2015 at 11:54 pm One word; ANIME. (Japanese comic books and writing are back-to-front, right-to-left; corn-fusing for us Gaijin to read, even with English translations! Don’t get me started on Engrish…) John on April 16, 2015 at 5:09 am Manga “front” covers are indeed on what we’d regard as the “backs” of the books. But, of course, this art is from 1957—long before the first Sailor Moon (& company) characters showed up in America. So artists Cappello and Giordano were bold visionaries—ahead of their time!
