This cover was featured in a Milk Carton a long time ago, and now sees the light of day. What great artwork! The choice of black and white was inspired. The expressions of the two men are first rate, especially the fear displayed by Sam Bowden in the foreground. The detail shown in their faces and backs of the hands is excellent. The house in the background gives the proper creepy feel to the location. It’s interesting to me that the two men are clearly Western but have a vaguely Japanese feel to them.

I only wish the scan quality were better so we could see this first rate cover in more detail.
