Nice, I like that better actually (though I had no complaints about the original). The wrap around is extra nice. Hope the book is still coming in Sept. Tip for those who want to see the new and the old cover on the same page: Just click The Grave Thief label below Lou's post.

Yup, book on schedule.
I think the previous tan font color got lost amid the earth tones and tans of the art, whereas the black stands out and picks up the color of Isak's costume. Also we adjusted the art so the figures lower right down get cropped out. And things like the figure on the back are now centered.
