Classics Illustrated Covers

I blogged about the return of Classics Illustrated last week; but now thanks to the fine folks on the Graphic Novels in Libraries email list I've been led to the Web Companion Edition of The Complete Guide to Classics Illustrated. On the site are pretty decent scans of the cover art from all editions of Classics Illustrated, from the very first issue in 1941 (Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde) to the First Comics revival to the recent Acclaim comics reprint series. While some of the early covers were rough, they soon developed into some very nice cover art.
