Lately, anyway. The faces on his earlier covers were much more varied, so I know he can do it.
This seems to have been a choice rather than simple incapacity.

he told me he keeps on doing accidental self portraits in his work maybe this is one of those

Very weird books, but still pretty good. My favourite is Johnny and the Bomb, especially when the ghosts start exploring the world around them, and when Johnny interrupts the sale of the graveyard. The other two are good, but their premises and how they're handled makes them feel so "out there" it's slightly alienating.

Johnny and the Dead is the most ordinary of his three adventures, since it doesn't seem to involve extradimensional travel or time travel for Johnny himself, just for the ghosts. I would have thought it was also the easiest to understand but I read one online review in which the reviewer seemed to get the story 100% backwards.
There's a wide range of tastes. I like a certain degree of weirdness in fiction.
