Rescue Dogs & Ravens
By Nick Kidd
With Killer Meteor’s debut LP, the first thing that jumps out is the sleek packaging and gorgeous photography of Michael Donner. The front and back covers feature a boy of roughly 5 years donning an Incredible Hulk costume. On the front, he’s glancing off to the side of the frame looking unsure; on the back, the grimacing Hulk looks outward, his stuffed arm, chest, and abdominal muscles inhumanly flexed on the undersized boy’s frame. The outfit is made complete by its loose but tattered pants, a casualty of the transformation from man to Hulk, from boy to superhuman. The scene, photographed amidst Halloween décor, is awash in sepia.
