Totally agree.

I can understand the minimalistic approach for the image, but I don't think the font used for the title fits with it.... kind of out of place...

Not a great deal of love for the artwork over on the Shameless page on Facebook, I think they're wise to use minimal artwork so as to not kick up a fuss with the cretins at the D***y M**l and other worthless tabloid rags

I hate it (the artwork), from an art /aesthetic point of view I like it, though cannot understand why Shameless go for "arty" with this & tacky for Fulci's brilliant Don't Torture a Duckling, if Shameless want to increase sales of titles by the exploitative route then why go with this art?, the Fulci film on the other hand is made to look like a soft porn Joe D'Amato DTV film from the 80's, you should capitalize on the film's notoriety and BLAST it on the cover - BANNED IN 792 COUNTRIES! (that IMO would gain more sales to the general "punter") :)

You misunderstand what I'm saying Reaps' It's not about the reverse sleeve THIS is what we have and it's not playing on the notoriety of the title, If Shameless wanna sell go for tits n ass (as they have done before), It has been passed by the go ALL OUT with an exploitative cover, this cover is what I would expect from the likes of BFI...what happened to WHORE ABOARD? (although I hated those tag-lines) go for it! then give the fans a more "tastefull" cover.
Shameless/Arrow have really come on,I would love if they could take over from NOShame (whom they seem to emulate) Classy Euro label?...oh yes!

I don't have a problem with the minimalist style, though I think the image posted by Beyond 72 on the first page of this thread looks better.

I agree and Panel A certainly isn't a bad cover, just a bit bland imo. Here's hoping Panel B will be an improvement.:)

Panel B?
