The front cover features a painting of Jonah Hex by LUIS DOMINGUEZ that was "originally scheduled for the fourth issue of DC's Digest Comic, JONAH HEX AND OTHER WESTERN TALES, but the title was cancelled with #3."
The back cover boasts a fun illustration by NEAL ADAMS, described thusly in the table of contents: "Neal Adams strikes back! Here's the renowned Batman artist's reaction to Bill Sienkiewicz's cover for our 54th issue. Even we were surprised by the speed with which it arrived. This is a man who misses deadlines?"
The inside back cover contains a DENNIS FUJITAKE illustration of the beautiful (and inexplicably topless) Princess Python (from the Ringmaster's Circus of Crime).
BLOOD & THUNDER includes letters from PIERCE ASKEGREN, PHILLIP B. KLINGLER, PATRICK GARABEDIAN, BRIAN SNELL, GARY L.
