Default Shameless Cover art question

I have been buying quite a few shameless titles atm and was wondering....

Killer Nun, Phantom of Death, Venus in Furs don't have alternitive artwork. Is this a mistake or did Shameless start later doing the reversable stuff.

Cheers.

I only ask as I saw a pic on google of alt artwork for phantom of death. Wasn't sure if it was just a fan art thing tho.

The Black Cat (No.6) is the first release I have with reverse artwork.
If there was meant to be reverse artwork on any of the first 5 titles then I don't have it on my copies of them...

Yep, Nagaman's right.

The only exceptions are NYR and Torso, which were later re-issued with reverse art.

Oasis of Fear was also re-released with slightly different front artwork.

Thanks guys. That clears that up. I wonder if the Phantom of Death was merely fan art then.
Why was Oasis of fear re-released with slightly different art.

I now have a question for you then...
With regards NYR, I take it it was the 1st release that was re-issued with reverse art and you're not talking about the later released Fan Edition?...
Wasn't aware of Torso reverse although didn't it get new front art?

I don't really know, to be honest. I don't think it was really explained at the time. It appears they just wanted to add some tits, though

Here's a comparison:

Yes, the original release was re-issued with new cover art before the release of the Fan Edition. The cover that adorns the Fan Edition is the reverse for the original release.

And yes, they changed the Torso front cover when the reverse was added:

Original front:


New front:


Reverse:
