Cammy's Covers – From Avengers Arena to The Unwritten
Awesome cover, I need to go hunt down a Biz lighter now (and I don't even smoke!).     Avengers Arena #2 by Chris Bachalo & Tim Townsend The kids-battling-each-other-to-the-death homage covers continue this week with the 1954 classic Lord of the Flies by William Golding I'd almost completely forgotten about that book!

Marvel Launches Avengers Arena In The Manner Of Battle Royale
