I’ve been saving this one for my 200th post. Because I have finally identified an artist on a foreign language edition? No. Because of the outstanding composition, the feathered brush strokes, the striking use of subtle shades of color? Um … no.

The cover shows a scene from the very beginning of the story, when Harry Broll pulls a gun on Travis in the saloon of the Busted Flush. As they say in the soaps, the role of Travis McGee is being played today by … William Shatner???

Look me in the eyes and tell me that isn’t Captain Kirk in a white suit jacket. And since when does Travis loll around in a suit and tie?
