Cover condundrums

So, here is what the insides of AQUAMAN #14 look like:











Yeah, 22 pages of guy-in-silhouette!

So, why does the COVER show Ocean Master full on, and out of the shadow?!?!?!




The other weird one this week is a product of Standard Operating Procedure at Dynamite -- everything has four covers, usually including ONE by Alex Ross.

But, here's the thing, if you're going to the expense of having Alex Ross FULLY PAINT your first issue, like that of MASKS #1, why on EARTH would you have 75% of your copies have a NOT ALEX ROSS cover?

Can I tell you that NO CUSTOMER who wants a fully painted Alex Ross comic book is saying "But what would make this better is a cover by Ardian Syaf!"

I'm sure he's an awesome human, but, seriously, this is one of those multiple cover deals that literally makes NO commercial sense of ANY kind.

Dumb move, Nick.
