OMG you guys.
It’s so completely different from the US cover, which I adore with fiery heart, but I love it so very, very much. It’s dark and punchy and movie poster glorious, and my main character, Victor, looks like an arrogant badass, which is essentially what he is and ngghhhhhhh.
I think the thing I like so much about these covers–the US and the UK–is that they are both clearly influenced by comic book culture, but in totally different ways. And that is just pretty damn cool.
ALSO! In case you didn’t hear my squees around the internet on Monday, VICIOUS GOT A PW STAR!!!!!!!!
“Schwab’s characters feel vital and real…In a genre that tends toward the flippant or pretentious, this is a rare superhero novel as epic and gripping as any classic comic.”
It’s my first starred review ever and I can’t stop smiling.
I think I need copies of both books, so different yet each perfect in their own way.
So so cool! I wish there was an easier way to get other country’s covers for books here in the US!
Omg, I might like this cover even more than the US cover… I think… maybe… AHH IDK. Seriously gorgeous.
I love it.
That star is well-deserved!
This is so much diffferent than the US cover, but still very cool. I’m not sure which one I like better!
I love the UK cover!!! I NEED to buy this edition 🙂
I think I’m going to need both versions. They’re both so gorgeous.
