Produced by Mark Allen. Music by Dan-O of www.DanoSongs.com. Developed and used primarily by Marvel Comics, the segmented cover, displaying various action sequences, and/or touting several different story lines, has often been employed to increase the attractiveness of a comic book. Exclamations such as, "All this, and MORE!", "Don't miss this issue!", or the always-dependable "This one has it all!" were sometimes used to ramp up the urgency for the fan to purchase said issue. This concept also produced some of my personal all-time-favorite covers. Who knows? Maybe some of yours are up there, as well.
