The Strangers In Paradise red-herring cover I used, repeatedly. I used this when it was time to solicit a new issue to the distributors, but I didn’t want to give away any spoilers to something big coming up. I did this multiple times. So for example, when I knew something critical was coming up, I just kept soliciting this pic and the story “Francine goes ape when she discovers her boyfriend has made a nude statue of her and unveiled it in the school rotunda!” Then you would get issue 60 or 86 and it was Francine’s wedding or David’s black issue. Following Strangers In Paradise series during the production years was not easy for fans. I was a sneaky bastard and I tried to get the bombshell issues to hit completely unexpected.
