never fancied that (chip) after dark cover to begin with. The attempt at a copy is even worse. The production value on the chip cover is very nice...

I'm going to have to give my agent another call...

I just love the "after dark" covers; I love how the metallic look has that underground subway look. Gives it that kind of glare-ish feeling after exiting the bar at 2 AM . . .
