As referenced in the first episode of our Ultraverse Podcast, The Prime of Your Life, here is the cover to Mantra #1.
Upon initial review, I’d argue that the cover depicts an adventure that’s taking place elsewhere and off-screen. Where is this half-naked and oddly posed woman leaping? And who is it that yelling guy with triple-barreled gun shooting? And who is the weird guy whose face is horribly obscured by the logo?
I do my best not to nitpick. I try my hardest not to be a jerk. But this cover does nothing for the fantastic book inside.
I love you, Mantra. Let’s not fight.
Yeah, not exactly the best cover, especially for a first issue. And what’s up with all the orange?
