  1. I have a question abott queens gatefold of news of the world..is that the original coloring? I’m so confused, everytime I look. Up this pic on google it all looks different..did I finally find a pix of it with genuine color?? Thanks!!

    1. Well, my copy was purchsed new back in the day, so I believe this is the original coloring, but, there are other versions. I’ve seen that they released a different cover in Korea. Maybe it was a little too Godzilla-esque.

  2. Thanks..I really like the works of the sci fi artist who drew the painting Frank Kelly Frea. I have seen the Korean version honestly made it look a little rougher than original I think. The one you have seems to have a softer look to it.and most of the ones I’ve looked at do have a softer look so I’m guessing that’s original. I’m assuming you’re from the states?
