There will be new editions of the first nine books released in 2017, with brand new cover art by Tom Percival, and Derek tweeted the cover art for the first three books today.

Interesting...

Not bad. Ghastly looks like he needs to see a doctor...

I believe you're right about the PWF cover, I'm also pretty sure the first one is Serpine.

Ehhh, I dunno. I think these characters look too bland to have in front of Skulduggery.

Not quite enough to bring me out of my SP collecting retirement, but there's still six more covers to see.

Skulduggery actually looks ok

I like them a lot. Except PwF, because Valkyrie looks weird facing in that direction and being so small, it's not quite right. Much prefer her on the other two covers. Skulduggery and the cleaver look great. Ghastly is....extremely cyanotic, I think I need to stick some high flow oxygen on him ;)

I want to see the DB cover. If I get a good Lord Vile (on ANY of them), I will buy a copy. 3 copies of DB seems excessive, but what can I say, it's my favourite and my paperback is getting really battered now

The Silver Surfer

I have to admit that the covers look pretty good. They'd make great posters, eventually. I'm looking forward to seeing the other covers.

I love the first cover, I think it's the best so far, is that Serpine? Wow he looks awsome!
The second cover is - meh - Bliss is looking ok (I think it's Bliss lol) but Baron Vengeous is looking soooo weird, definitelly not a good portrayal of the guy, as for the third cover, it's ok but I think Skul could have looked better.
Im not crazy, my reality is just different than yours.
