Comparing Covers

I was looking at the cover of Luke Pearson’s Hilda and the Midnight Giant (Nobrow Press, 2012) and was struck by how much the layout resembles that of Charles Burns’ X’ed Out (Pantheon, 2010).

Central figure, similar scale and depth of foreground and background, sloping terrain from right to left, tall object jutting out in top left corner.
