Friday Face-Off – 31st January 2020

Friday Face-Off – 31st January 2020

The Friday Face-Off is a meme originally created by Books by Proxy and now hosted over at Lynn’s Books. The idea is to compare the different covers of a book with each week being a certain theme.

This week’s Friday Face-Off theme is a cover that depicts First Contact: “Ack, Ack, Ack, we come in peace.” For this theme I’ve gone with Aliens by Alan Dean Foster.

Cover A:

alien1

Cover B:

alien2

Cover C:

alien3

Cover D:

alien4

Cover E:

alien5

And the winner is… COVER B!

To me the Xenomorph is the first thing that comes to mind when I think of aliens. It’s a simple cover with the horrifying visage of the alien. 

What are your thoughts? Do you agree with my winner, or does one of the others work better for you? Let me know in the comments!

Next week’s theme is a cover featuring a lion: “Is that a lion with horns and a pitchfork?”
