Is This Gratuitous: Sorrow #2 Cover
At any rate, the cover caught my eye because the chick on the front's shirt is wide open and she is about ready to take a shot of what appears to be whiskey. If I didn't know better I would say it looks like she is trying to entice the bad guys rather then hide from them. The girl also has an oddly come hither look for a scary comic book. These things make me think that the cover is a bit gratuitous.
Since this is not the attire I would pick if I would stranded in a ghost town, I have no choice but to make this cover my candidate.
Here is the skinny on the issue:
"story RICK REMENDER & SETH PECK, art FRANCESCO FRANCAVILLA, cover KIERON DWYER
32 PAGES, BW, $2.99
Things get worse as Danni is introduced to the residents of Sorrow, and Nevada and Dalton come face-to-face with the unspeakable evil responsible for Mike's recent transformation. Meanwhile, the sheriff continues his relentless pursuit of the escaped girls with the help of the monster known as Black Dog."
The book actually sounds pretty cool, but I am a bit distracted by the cover at this point.
What do you think?
Is this gratuitous?
