Cover Talk: June 10, 2017

I’m changing up Cover Talk a bit concerning the posting date. Going forward, I’m going to post this article after the books have released for that current week (I’m shooting for Thursday afternoons), so you’ll vote on that week’s covers and variant covers. I initially wanted to post this on Monday’s to help balance out the timing of our posts throughout the week, but trying to manage previous, current, and future covers/ titles was putting me in a bit of a spin. So, since the fifth week of May didn’t contain any variant covers, this seemed like the perfect time to make that switch.

Below you’ll find the cover of each title released this week, followed by the variant covers released this week. Check them out. Study them. Try your best not to let your opinion of the story effect your thoughts on the cover, then vote for your favorite. If you’re like me, and can’t decide on just one, then you can select multiple covers if you would like. Following the poll for this week’s covers, you will find the results from last week’s post. Happy voting!
