Anyhow, it pretty much brought to my mind the hardcover dust jacket for Michael Chabon's excellent The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay.
Which is much, much cooler in real life, as it stretches around the whole book, and has the blue clad superhero from the novel leaning out into his punch, and his screaming girlfriend on the back. There's lots to like about the image: the colours, the simple, but strong lines, and the pulp without camp look to it. Of course, the real joy of the cover is that he's punching out Hitler. Because not enough covers do that.
