Friday Face-Off: Ripped/Torn
Welcome to The Friday Face-Off, a weekly meme created by Books by Proxy! Each Friday, we will pit cover against cover while also taking the opportunity to showcase gorgeous artwork and feature some of our favorite book covers. If you want to join the fun, simply choose a book each Friday that fits that week’s predetermined theme, post and compare two or more different covers available for that book, then name your favorite. A list of future weeks’ themes are available at Lynn’s Book Blog.
This week’s theme is:
~ a cover that features RIPS/TEARS
This week’s topic is another in which I’ll be featuring a series instead of the usual cover showdown. First of all, the covers are just perfect for the theme, and second of all, they are just so AWESOME. The Killing Joke, Harley Quinn: Mad Love, and Court of Owls are a trio of “DC’s prose” novels that came out in 2018 from Titan Books based on some of the greatest characters and stories to come out of the Batman universe. I’ve only read the latter two, but enjoyed them both a lot; plus I’ve always admired their covers for their cleverness and creativity. Honestly, I can’t pick a favorite. They’re all great!
