Dazed & Confused went above and beyond for its June 2012 cover featuring Prometheus star Noomi Rapace photographed by Sølve Sundsbø. Done entirely in cool tones of black, white, blue, and grey the cover features an image that is both a close-up and full-body shot that completely fits the issue's sci-fi theme while entrancing and mesmerizing the viewer. Forum members were duly impressed.
“This. Is. Epic! One of the best covers I've seen all year!” VogueDisciple93 exclaimed.
“Absolutely fabulous,” Psylocke noted. “I agree, an instant classic and sure to be one of the best covers of the year. Awesome concept, perfectly executed. Love it!!!”
Justaguy was also a fan of the cover. He commented that it “would make a great movie poster too!”
The entire issue has a science fiction, intergalactic, extraterrestrial type of theme. That whole space as the great frontier thing is not typically my cup of tea, and as yet I have no interest in seeing Prometheus, but I would be lying if I said I wasn't impressed and intrigued by this cover. At any rate, it looks like something different from the norm, and it could be well worth picking up a copy.
