Can't figure out the dude who picks the covers for the tpbs. They consistently pick my least favorite of the comics within. Weird

According to the preview, that would be one of three people, if not Livio himself. Or even Barber. Or Guzman. :P

Though, to be fair, this has been the Monstrosity cover since it began. I do agree that some of the others look a lot nicer, but Tom B. Long's design for the TPB is brilliant! Look at all the fancy arty stuff in the first pages, before the story even starts! :D

Don't get me wrong... I LOVE the art in these. It's so dark, painterly, and ... well, like HIGH art. Lifts it out of being a comic and up to something you'd actually frame and put on the wall in a museum. Definitely buying it.
