Good Show Sir’s Art Direction: Look it’s based off a role-playing game so we’re technically a franchise… which means we don’t need to care about appearing on the website Good Show Sir… whatever that might be in the future.

Lauren F’s Art Direction: Since this story is about elves and changeling babies and magic, it definitely makes sense to represent it on the cover with an electrical plug attacking a lady holding a fluorescent light bulb.
