yeah, it's the only unused cover I really like, but I think the final cover for 129 fits the story better.

This one. Love the coloring! (Oh and Erik's pen/ink is great too, of course.)

LOL @ 118 being considered unused simply because Jennifer has a different top on. :lol:

Jennifer is entirely different. She was completely redrawn.

compare her face in the final to the unused:

The final is far superior.

No joke. The original is not pretty.

Her cheeks are a bit boney on the original version... But that doesn't make her ugly. And the dotted suspenders were a nice touch that made the retro Romance Comics reference work better in my opinion. I actually like it better than the printed version, which always felt a bit half-baked to me.

Where is it from, BTW? A trade?
