2001 # 4 Cover

Original artwork and the published image of the cover for 2001: A Space Odyssey# 4 (Mar 1977). Kirby/Giacoia.

Notice in the published cover a lot of the details in the flaming asteroid (that you can see on the original) have been colored black. Maybe they are buried under that dark purple color.

This image reminds me of the famous scene in the first Indiana Jones film where Harrison Ford is running away from the giant boulder.
