Something of an outcry happened after Catherynne M. Valente first posted the cover to her new series with Night Shade for The Habitation of the Blessed. Accusations of white-washing the female character on the cover as well as a sloppy looking design job on the text and minimalization of Valente's name were just some of the issues raised. Not to mention those Andre The Giant hands hodl the book. The cover has now been redone and it corrects nearly all of its problems.
Much, much improved. More of a streamlined approach to the title helped a great deal. And they smartly moved the author's name to cover the hands.
