scan0002Above is the cover from Machine Man #1 by Barry Windsor-Smith from the 4 issue limited series (October 1984 – January 1985).  Machine Man was never that interesting a character to me until he got a major overhaul by Warren Ellis in his Nextwave series.  Before that he was just another robot that somehow gained sentience.  However, I never read the Barry Windsor-Smith limited series so perhaps I have missed out on something extraordinary.  I do love the intricacy of these covers.

This is the cover to issue #2 of the Machine Man limited series.  It is similar to the first cover, but it appears that Machine Man is slowly assembling himself into a new being.  Pretty cool.  I love how BWS draws all of those technology bits.
