Those aren't the final U.S. covers (thank goodness). The U.S. covers use the UK art.

Thanks for the correction John, I do prefer the UK art - even if it's not illustrated ;-)

Is this switch to UK covers because the publishers heard the screams of dismay when fans saw the previews? Do you think they listen or would they go ahead and print them anyway if the public disliked them?

The US artwork was put on hold and then a decision was made to change it and use the UK. Now I am not saying that this is because of the general outcry of dismay form the fans but I do think this might have had something to do with it. Never underestimate the power of the Fans!
