    But like I said, Pharma and Tyrest were very prominent when the book was at its peak both in sales, word of mouth and popularity. The argument that they being on a cover at this point could hurt the sales is nonsensical because there not nobodies to the audience, and if anything the 23 is far more likely to scare off new potential casual buyers.

    Seriously, we have a thread of people right now complaining about no name F list background characters not being used by IDW as if putting them on covers would improve sales, lmao. The nonsense double standards are so dumb and don't hold up at all.

    Sure, those two being on the cover won't hurt sales... with the people who are already going to buy it. Are they going to entice any new readers to pick it up? If not, it's basically a nice gesture to hardcore fans of the book, the shrinking group that it has become.

    Such a beautifully perfect cover for the End Times. So good to see GS on another cover too.

    Ugh, with Lost Light ending and Saga going on a year long hiatus at the same time I’m going to be making a lot less trips to the comic shop in the coming year. :(

    People moan sometimes just for the sake of moaning. I love the cover

    Tbh the contents of the issue is what matters not the cover. A great issue negates whatever may be on the cover IMO. I have all the brilliant Casey coller covers for heart of darkness but the story was terrible. I'd rather a good story tbh.

    But I know comic covers are important to people. This is a Geoff senior and I like it.

    While I do have issues with some of the original characters introduced into LL and MTMTE, and feel like they went a bit overboard, Pharma and Tyrest are okay. They fit into the mythos pretty well.

    Also love Geoff Senior's work here and on #22. He could totally do an entire issue and I'd love it.

    I've been avoiding reading the comics due to not liking the stop start nature of an issue every few weeks - I might go back to the original marvel stuff before rejoining the IDW verse
