Judging By the Cover

A roundup of links:

Penguin Classics has commissioned Chris Ware, Art Spiegelman, and other comic book artists to give new covers to old books. The Millions has the art.

Michael Paulus has undertaken an anatomical study of cartoon characters such as Charlie Brown and Marvin the Martian, having drawn their skeletal systems.

Forbes Magazine has published a list of the ten most wealthy fictional characters, including Lex Luthor and Bruce Wayne, and estimates their wealth.

Oh my god. The book covers and the anatomy are so amazing. I'm just blown away by the unmitigated awesomeness.

Thanks for the wonderful links.
I just have one comment for Forbes Magazine:

Duckburg is not in Florida!
Everyone knows that Duckberg is on the Pacific coast in the great state of Calisota! Sheesh!!

After looking through Chip Kidd's monograph, I'm going to assume that it's been his influence that led to those artists working on those book covers. They look great!
