Yes, yes, we’ve seen this artwork before, but it’s well worth a second look. It’s surprisingly hard to find a good scan of this particular cover but I am fortunate enough to own a copy, so here it is.

As I said before, the composition is just outstanding, as well as one of the most disturbing JDM covers I’ve seen. While there is nothing ostensibly going on, it is obvious to me that the man in the boots has just knocked her to the floor, giving us a good look down her blouse into the bargain, and even without seeing his face, I have a sneaking suspicion he rather enjoyed it.

I doubt she did.

This is one of my favorite covers.
