    Out of these, Manifest Destiny wins by far.. I love Monstress but I think they could have done a better and different book to pay homage to Spawn’s classic #1 cover.

  2. Jesus says:

    100% agree with you Poyo. I was thinking more of Spread then Monstress. I’ll draw something up see if u like it Poyo lol. Manifest Destiny is a really good cover.

  3. John Oppliger says:

    The Monstress cover may still have Sana Takeda art, but this homage design completely clashes with the aesthetic design of the series’ first nine covers.

  4. Barry W says:

    I have already pre-ordered at least one of the previously revealed covers, I shall do the same here, I will then try to put a set out! Ordered multiple Walking Deads, Kill or be Killed and Invincible (coz that one is only 25 cents)

  5. A. King says:

    I really like the Manifest Destiny.
