Good Show Sir’s Art Direction: We need something to symbolise life… like a man breaking out of a box, a box that’s sort of shaped like a man. I know! Put Alfred Hickcock’s head on that box as a hunky man breaks free! What doesn’t that say about life?

Bibliomancer’s Art Direction: Sorry Mr. Burroughs but your first Mars book didn’t sell many copies in our Southern bookstores. Perhaps you need a more menacing villain. Our new cover artist has some fresh ideas.

Tom Noir’s Art Direction: Alright, with this book we’re targeting that often over-looked pre-teen girl fantasy market. What do pre-teen girls like? Cats and unicorns. Wait! I have it. There’s a girl, but she’s also a unicorn! What do you mean that doesn’t make sense? Make it happen! Oh, and make sure she has a cat.

Rachel and Thomas Comment: There are fourteen of these now. Apparently, the reading public cannot get enough of these magnificent hissing catmen and their high-cut thonged armoured leotards festooned with Rob Liefeld pouches. And who can blame us?

Amazingly impractical fantasy sword... check!Click for full image

Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Comments: With this cover, it’s the little things. Such as ‘Her right hand has a weak grip on the handle.’ And ‘The bat on the pommel would make it hard to sheathe the blade.’ And ‘Goodness, is that MY face?’
