New cover featuring Mouse with Sadao and Tagata in the background. I love this cover. When they first changed artists–Lehanan Aida did the cover and interior illustrations for the first edition Then Aldaria was brought on to do the illos for the second edition–I thought it was going to take some time for me to get used to a new Sadao and Mouse, but it didn’t. I was instantly sold on Aldaria’s work. I was already a fan, but to see two of my favorite characters rendered by her hand… I was so down for that. I really hope we get to see some of the other characters drawn by her in book two.
This makes the third copy of this book that I now have. I’d show you a comparison, but all of my books are packed up, so that and my re-read to see it the errors from the first edition have been corrected will have to wait.
