I'm normally not too Overly Skeptical, but I have to agree. Doesn't mean that it isn't kinda cool, though. In a "Cobra!" kinda way.

I've seen a TPB with art better than the normal comics. This is pathetic. It's only a photoshopped "logo" and a title.

So you did... Well,... I'm leaving it up for now. If someone of the news crew wants to take it down, that's fine with me...

True, but in general we don't expect that much from a TPB cover. In essence they have released the story already. They're usually just rehashes of covers already existing.

Reminds me of the Wolfenstein logo, minus the red and additional lines.

Let's ignore the fact that the text at the bottom is the same font as the Star Wars logo, shall we?

It's photoshopped.

I say, remove the graphics and text and go all black. Then it could be none blacker.

The Star Wars font at the bottom gives it away, this can't be a sanctioned logo. The 'v' shape does not match the 't' and 'f' in the actual logo, something that has already been established and should not be tampered with to maintain proper branding. This version never appears on the many other items that we have seen surface so I would venture to guess it is just a place holder until the actual cover surfaces.

In conclusion, it is an imposter! More then meets the eye if you will.

If you look closely at where the T and F meet (At the very top of the logo) you can actually see the seam between them. It looks like it was blurred over, so it would be hard to notice.

EDIT: Not to mention, the T is noticably darker than the F.

It's photoshopped.
Art submitted does not have to be the actual coverart. But could be an early version. A work in progress. At that stage, they're all photoshops, in a manner of speaking.

That definately looks like a metal band designed the logo.

The first thing I thought of when I seen it was that old Undertaker "T" logo...
