Cover art for Infectious by Kevin Eastman (with cut-out figure from Big Numbers by Al Columbia, lower left), 1993.
"I found one tiny little drawing in the studio we provided Al, above Tundra. For the twenty thousand dollars or more I paid out to Al Columbia on this Big Numbers project, I found one little cut-out drawing of a character that I later glued onto a cover of a twisted little book I did called Infectious. It’s my twenty thousand dollars worth of Big Numbers, tribute!”- Kevin Eastman, October, 1997, from interview with Gary Groth for The Comics Journal
