There are 101 PhD theses waiting to be written on the semiotics of book covers.
Interesting. (Had to look up semiotics.)

I don't have big problems with the dark background version, it's has the minimum to offend, but I think it also has the minimum to attract. (I do understand how the cartoon characters may come to grate. In this house we refer to that effect as "be-sharpish" - in reference to the Simpsons's Barbership Quartet episode where Skinner says: "we need a name that's witty at first, but that seems less funny each time you hear it.")

I don't like the question mark, I'd be happy to see it gone.
Thanks gmw. I just think since this is going to be a series that I'm locking myself into the cartoon characters and most of the books like mine are icons and simple backgrounds. And the cartoonish characters are just striking me as cheesy. I'm getting rid of the ? and posting again. Thanks.

I agree too cartoonidh. The dark navy blue background I like best. Reminds me of some of the Kindle Stephen King covers
Thanks. Yeah, the cartoonish isn't working for me anymore.

Here's the latest. I took out the question mark from the title. I emboldened the tagline and changed its last line. Thanks.

Why can't I see any of the images? All I see is a grey cloud overlaid by a small triangle with an exclamation mark inside. Is it me, or is that what everyone sees?

I can see the image on the first post, but like you I see just the cloud/triangle thing for all the others. These images were all linked from external sites. The first comes from mediafire.com, the others from postimg.org.

Apparently postimg.org was being used by postimages.org and they are reporting a domain problem. If the links are changed from postimg.org to postimg.cc they work.

Yes, postimg changed it and I just now realized it. I changed some of the images back (doing the .org --> .cc thing) but then MR stopped me from changing anymore.

Sorry for the confusion. Anyway, here's the latest:

Off topic: given the current situation, I can't help feeling that the tagline should be: A nuclear crisis. Three idiots. What could go wrong?

I preferred the tag as *One* nuclear crisis, rather than *A*

"One", "Two", just had more of a swing to it.

Great catch, Granny. "A" was inadvertent. I must've been rushing. Thank you!

(I also took out "a novel," as I don't think anyone is going to mistake this cover as a treatise on Navy Seal rescues.)

I'll post the tweaked cover at the bottom of this thread.
