Another Covers Dilemma

I'm not quite done with my big pile of comics--I would be if I stopped buying them--so I'm pushing the Comics Recap and Everyday Heroes back a week.

In the meantime I ran into a slight problem with the cover for the third Girl Power book.  Originally I was going to use this graphic, which is kind of cool:
The only problem is with the way the story is written there's no male bad guy so it doesn't make a lot of sense.  So I went to go look up pictures of women brandishing a knife, of which there are more than a few.  Maybe you can pick a winner from these:

Keep in mind these are just comp images, not finished products so they're in low resolution.

Any of these strike your fancy?

It looks like the chick with the knife behind her back is winning.  It does have kind of a neat "Psycho" vibe.  Here's a cleaned-up version:


  1. The naked chick with the knife behind her back. ;)

  2. I like the 3rd one the best. Kinda a Harlequin look to it.
    Then I must ask....Where on earth did you find so many pics of women with knives?
    There must be some kind of fetish out there I know nothing about, nor do I want to.

    1. They're on Fotolia and probably other stock photo sites. It's funny to imagine some photographer saying, "Now honey, put your tongue on the knife..."

  3. I also like the naked woman with the knife behind her back. I like imagining her face rather than seeing it.

  4. I like the first one. As Maurice points out, it really does command your attention.

  5. I like some better than others. Without knowing the vibe you want, I prefer the one with the happy homemaker brandishing the knife. I like the zombie looking lady from the first one second best.

  6. Go with the naked woman/knife behind back.
