Gideon Smith and the Brass Dragon – cover smackdown!















In the red corner… the cover to Gideon Smith and the Brass Dragon’s UK edition, as designed by Snowbooks’ supremo Emma Barnes. In the… well, it’s the sort of red and gold corner, the US edition from Tor’s art and design team under the head honcho-ship of Irene Gallo, with a wonderful illustration by Nekro.

But which one’s best..? There’s only one way to find out! COVER SMACKDOWN!

(Psst. You don’t have to choose. In fact, you could go out and buy both if you wanted… US edition out September 16, UK edition September 17. Go fill your little brass boots)



  1. UK ed for sure – nicely matches vol 1 and a bit more understated and grown-up (albeit the seahorse looks a bit like a dragon..).

  2. I prefer the UK version, but the US one does suggest those penny dreadfuls that Gideon used to read. If anything though, the US version is surely the movie poster? I’d definitely go see that! 😉
