Personally I think it's definetly the right way to go. More often than not, the original artwork used on the reverse is incredible and can be much better than the front. They're so much more eye-catching and with the yellow borders, really do stand out!

Hmmmm tbh, I don't really see the point. People are going to buy it regardless of what artwork they see in the shops.

I'm surprised Stephen. I thought you cared for artwork more than anything else in the whole wide world!

It's the same 2 covers it's always been. A complete waste of time if you ask me. It won't make anymore people buy it. They'll buy it regardless of what artwork is on display in the shop.

Nah, not for me, there's just something about that plain font from the VHS that I like.

But just for you. (See doesn't work)

At this rate, maybe Arrow and Shameless should just release plain artwork and have all the title fonts and taglines inside as stickers instead and people can make the cover of their choice.
