Illustrator Des Taylor, who has a self-professed obsession with retro film and 50's pin-up girls, combined these interests to come up with a collection of fictional magazine covers.
His LIVE covers are a fictional magazine company he created that covers stories surrounding the people in and around the heroes of yesteryear. Superheroes, their romantic interests and their sidekicks are featured on faux issues dating back to the 50s, 60s and 70s.
The works will be showcased at KAPOW! London comic convention. Des claims that if he has the time, he'll do the Marvel Boys to finish off the set.

a special shoutout to Joe Gaulzetti for bringing these to my attention.
