New Covers! Orbit UK Editions of THE COLDEST WAR and NECESSARY EVIL

October 16, 2012 at 12:13 pm

I had my first sneak peak at the Orbit UK covers for Milkweed #2 and #3, THE COLDEST WAR and NECESSARY EVIL, last week.  And I've been bubbling over with excitement ever since.  It feels like it was a terribly long wait until the covers were officially revealed, even though it was only a few days. 

But anyway!  Yes!  The entire Milkweed Triptych has cover art for its Orbit editions.  And it's all incredibly awesome.  As can be seen here, here, and in close-up here.   Man alive, I love these covers.

I think this new art for The Coldest War and Necessary Evil do a fantastic job of representing each book while making it clear that they're all part of the same series -- a series that began with this cover.  Don't all three go perfectly swell together?  I especially love the progression of uniforms across the books of the series: German, Soviet, British.

Those do all go very nicely together. Congrats on some more good covers!

Man, if Orbit was putting out hardcover editions, I would be in serious danger of picking them up so I would have a matched set. Okay, I admit I might be a little in danger of doing that anyway.

Those UK covers are awesome. I guess you can get these framed and put them up in the living room now, hey?

Thanks very much, everybody! Yes, I think they're really swell. They make a nice set when put together.
