The Friday Face-Off: Cartoonish/Graphic



Friday Face Off New
Welcome to The Friday Face-Off, a weekly meme at Books by Proxy. Join us every Friday as we pit cover against cover, and publisher against publisher, to find the best artwork in our literary universe. You can find a list of upcoming topics at Lynn's Books.

This week's topic is:

 This week ended up being a bit trickier than I expected! I decided to collect a variety of covers from different books that I thought looked like they could immediately start moving and become a cartoon. I'm not sure which would actually be considered "cartoonish/graphic," but this is just how I am interpreting it, I guess. :) There's a bit of a mix of middle grade, YA, and adult, so that was fun to find. Let's take a look at some of them!
The Magnolia Sword: A Ballad of MulanMaster Assassins (The Fire Sacraments, #1)The Entirely True Story of the Unbelievable FIB
2019 US Hardcover | 2018 US Hardcover | 2015 US Hardcover

Over the Underworld (The Unbelievable FIB, #2)The Wishing Spell (The Land of Stories, #1)Gods of Jade and Shadow
2016 US Hardcover | 2012 US Hardcover | 2019 US Hardcover

To the Bright Edge of the WorldThe Secret KeepersThe Adventurer's Guide to Successful Escapes
2017 US Paperback | 2016 US Hardcover | 2016 US Hardcover

My choice(s):
Gods of Jade and ShadowThe Secret KeepersTo the Bright Edge of the World
I actually really like a lot of these, especially since they are so colorful! These three just tend to jump out at me the most and I am particularly fond of them, so I suppose I'll pick these three as my favorites. :) 

What cover(s) do you like the most!?


  1. I have that edition of To The Bright Edge of the World - it's really cool!

  2. These all look great together! I adore the cover of Gods of Jade and Shadow, but my favorite is The Land of Stories, probably because I'm a big Chris Colfer fan😁
