front cover of KaleidoScope #7, front cover by Rudas, a two-fer, a long-haired Spock AND a long-haired Kirk --"Two long-haired unclothed warriors locked in a passionate kiss. I love the kaleidoscope in Spock’s hair. It takes my breath away each time I look at it. It is nicely framed on the page, but I find myself wishing it covered the entire page" and "What a lovely, hot, dynamic drawing. The entire drawing was in print before, but this is a close-up of just the kiss, which makes it even more powerful. A passionate, master/slave kiss...Spock master/Kirk slave...and drawn quite nicely—lines on the spare side that are nonetheless fully expressive." 
the back cover of Scattered Stars #7, the artist is DEW "The covers to SS7 are quite simple yet striking. They remind me of early pen & ink [Gayle F's], but are companion pieces by DEW and Deeb. Deeb's 1991 front Spock has touches of rose and gold while DEW's 1993 back Kirk has gold and green. Both sport sexy earrings. I wish their eyes had been open in the drawings."
