US Vs. UK: The Looking Glass Wars Covers

US // UK

I personally like both of these covers, and the difference in tone/colour is pretty fascinating. The US one looks quite ominous, while the UK one looks more Wonderland-y.

The army on the US cover remind me of Genral Grievous's men from Star Wars. They have a very similar style, and I love it!

UK version for sure. It looks brighter but still very mysterious.

So different! I'd never pick up the US one, but the UK one is intriguing.

I'm a total Alice nut! I don't think either of these covers do justice to some of the incredible, ingenious twists that Beddor has given the Carroll universe. Really clever stuff. I'd want to see the Hatter on the cover . . .

I have the US cover, and I think it's a better book cevor than the UK one, but the UK cover is prettier. I love the foggy shrooms!

I can't decide. Neither one would shout to me if I saw them on the shelf in a book store. I'm weird like that...

I love the giant mushrooms on the UK cover! So unique.

I am a much bigger fan of the original cover on the hardcover release of this book--I was actually kind of disappointed in these covers. :-/

I'm actually not a fan of either! They're a little too sci-fi for me...
