Nice. But I believe it was originally intended to promote the release of Day of the Robot. It\'s from 1995 and has similar art/font.


If my memory serves, they did get it right. Dave McKean did the cover art for DoTR, but this comic was commissioned by Sony in Japan for Giant Robot. Sony USA passed on it-they didn\'t hear a single, or whatever, but it was picked up later by Higher Octave/CyberOctave which also hired McKean to direct the video for "The Ballad of Buckethead" which was on Monsters and Robots. Which is kick-ass!! Got to check it out if you haven\'t.


I like the video more than I like the song, and I dig the tune a lot! Especially the second verse. And the sample from Slingblade is pretty sweet. I heard that Buckethead was thrilled to go to England and hang out in McKean\'s studio to film it.

Btw, has anyone here seen Mirror Mask? I just picked it up and haven\'t had a chance to watch it yet.
