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:
I wasn't sure at first what book I'd pick for this one until I remembered Johannes Cabal the Necromancer by Jonathan L. Howard, which has the perfect top hat front and center on the cover! There weren't that many editions available to share, but I really like the variety and how different all of the editions are. I decided to share a few of the sequel covers as well, just to add a bit to look at.
2009 Doubleday | 2010 Headline
2009 German | 2019 Russian
2010 | 2011 | 2014 | 2016
I actually really like most of the editions of this one, but I remain partial to this original US edition, and I love how well this entire series looks together.
The 2010 Headline edition and the 2019 Russian ones are close second for cool ones, though!
What cover(s) do you like the most!?
