Box Cover Comp for Cosmic Encounter -Painting by Michael Carroll

From The Future Pastimes Archives

Description: A space scene with the ZOMBIE floating below the Horsehead Nebula with a cratered planet below, Signed M. Carroll. 7 1/4" X 9 1/4"

Background: Michael Carroll was in his early career when he submitted a couple of comps for the 1982 Big Box version of the Eon Products Cosmic Encounter. This one painted in December 1980, has the title Zombie Floating Below Horsehead Nebula inked in on the white top left margin, and M. Carroll in the lower left.

We liked Michael's comps quite a bit, but ultimately we chose to go with Dean Morrissey for the Big Box Cosmic Encounter cover.

In the ensuing twenty four years, Michael Carroll has become a highly regarded Space Artist. Some of his current work can be seen on on the non profit Planetary Society web site.
