US Vs. UK: I Am Not a Serial Killer Covers

US // UK

I really like both of these covers, but the UK is my favourite. The red really stands out, and the claw marks are very cool. I also prefer the UK text font, because it's exactly how I imagine main character John Cleaver would write.

I like the notebook effect of the US cover, the blood spatters and how Dan's name looks like part of the page. I'd happily buy either, but the UK one would be my preference.

Hmm, I like them both but the UK one looks more YA to me, which makes sense as I believe that's how it is being marketed here.

Okay, I don't like either! Too scary!

I prefer the UK cover, hands down! It's bold, it stands out and looks scary. Also, red just happens to be my favourite colour *grin*

I prefer the US one overall - just really catches my eye - but i definately prefer the UK font.

I'm with the US version. Stark white paper, black font with blood splatters. Although the red in the UK cover is striking, I am not as keen on claw marks, bit too animal/werewolf looking. However, both covers look great and I'd buy either.

They're both good but I like the US one better. It catches my attention more than the UK cover.

I like the US better.

I prefer the UK one. Mostly because the NOT is is a different color... and the red really makes it seem just a bit more violent!

Honestly I keep looking at the US one, it more appeals to me. The red is a bit to much for me!!
