I want all of them... although The Divinity one doesn't look to good. I wish it was more like Divinity's regular Cover A in Tom Muller style. However, it would be weird to get all but one.

I am with you there. I liked the Solar triangle cover for Divinity the best

@dman1366: To be honest none of the Divinity's covers is really nice and it's just fitting the Divinity's Tom Muller variant isn't the best here either.

I don't really understand how this is a huge deal. The guy literally overlayed bright colors onto drawings. Personally I think Valiant got ripped off.

Oh, I thought he drew all these but you're right; He just took some pre-existing linework (probably the interior art for these issues) and drowned them in neon.

I guess these colors would look cool on like 90s foil/chrome gimmick covers, but as they are I think most of these would do more to repel a potential buyer than attract one.
