We're all familiar with the phrase "so wrong it's right" but it's rare that we come across an image that exemplifies that familiar idea as perfectly as this week's top flier. We feel a little dirty just looking at it -- liking it as much as we do surely indicates there's something wrong with us. Be that as it may, we dig the hell out of it and as soon as we saw it we knew it was going to get the nod this week. And while the image itself is too good/bad to be true, the supporting design work is also worthy of mention -- the typefaces work well together, the layout is balanced and ... hell, who are we kidding. We'd have picked this even if the text had been hastily scrawled on in crayon. We simply cannot resist the lure of a cartoon cheerleader stripping naked and smiling broadly as she hurtles toward certain horrible maiming. Click on the image to see it in larger form, and head out to see the fine lineup of Alan Alda, St. Elias, Ideal Fathers and Yellfire the day after Thanksgiving -- you'll need a break from the family by then, anyway.
Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
