City of Ruin UK paperback cover art

Sunday, August 29, 2010

Mark posted the cover art for the City of Ruin UK paperback edition. The way Brynd is portrayed is completely different from the Hardcover art. Although I didn't like the cartoonish feel of the original cover, I won't cheer either for this one. I don't think it's ugly but maybe it's that I really didn't picture Brynd that way in my mind. The purple background is a great idea judging by the color emanating from the cultists' devices and the cities are always great looking in all of Newton books. Your thoughts?

I saw the UK artwork on another site, and didn't care for it one bit, to the point where it might stop me from picking up the book.

but that more cartoony cover art? I'd pick that up in a heartbeat, just for the cover art.
