The following comparisons don't really prove any point, but we had to include them out of sheer puzzlement and wonder. Why are these covers so similar, yet so completely dissimilar? Some simply switch the background color, or title, or time of day. Others flip a character from left to right or from front to back, with no discernable reason. One cuts the world in half - before putting it back together - while another randomly adds a baseball. Okay.
Our best guess? Either the companies had a lot of extra art lying around... or somebody felt they'd better change something if they wanted to justify their continued employment. Blue to red, and another job well done!
