I haven't been online much lately due to finals ( I will finish this Thursday)  but  today I sneaked some time to find out about the New Bakker news and I saw this :

Yikes...

I hope they go back to the original TGO cover... it wasn’t that bad compared to this.

Haha, I had the opposite reaction. Probably because the first cover they went with was just ripped from another one of their publications. Then they changed it, and it was probably worse somehow.

I 'like' the current one the most so far. Though really 'hate less' might be more appropriate. I never liked/understood the face thing.

So that is 4 different covers we've seen so far, huh?

I count three?
Clash of Eagles (first cover)
2nd Guy, they also changed the circle frame around the face (second cover)
Circle Tattoo guy (third cover, current)

What did I miss?

They could have at least made the eyes glow...

The ARC one has the eyes open with the white swirl on the face, there is an eyes closed white swirl (what Aural posted), the new one with the circle pattern (what Redeagl posted), and then this one.

Oh right, two different version of Mr.White-Swirl aka Clash of Eagles (http://www.amazon.com/Clash-Eagles-Trilogy/dp/0804177228)

Looks like that covers all of them :P.

I wonder if Overlook got the message that we weren't happy about the recycled cover, then later that we didn't like the replacement one.

I kinda feel they've been getting worse and worse :/

Good luck with your last final today Redeagl!

Stop it, they are going to make another face cover if you keep this up, haha.
