  1. Tie between Dreadnought and Troubled Waters

  2. I like Out of the Dark. At first I was going to say Dreadnought the more I look at Out of the Dark the more I like it. It’s mysterious.

  3. My top three:
    1) Out of the Dark (tie)
    1) Warhead (tie)
    3) Dreadnaught (which has such a cool illustration)

  4. The bookcover duels, for me, come down to a nice balance of color, typography and form that suits the thumbnail.  If I looked at the enlarged version of each (which I never do) then I might pick other than I do.  Case in point: I think Dreadnought has the best color palette, best font (typography in general is a drastically underated feature of a cover), and most intersting contrast of forms  of all the covers shown, but from the thumbs I would have picked Tome or Troubled based on the thumbnails.  When looking at the enlarged versions however, I would tie Driver and Warhead for second.
