Comics header redesign

Years ago, I asked my executive editor if I could redesign the header on our then comics page. He said no, because they were printed out of house and we had no control over the header.

And now, about ten years later, he came back and said "hey, I need you to redesign the header for the comics page."

Do all projects come around in time?

Here was the design mine replaced (not the same one of yore that I wanted gone, though)...
