Here we see Dylan’s rendition of Sirius Black, with the ragged-cloaked figures of the Dementors standing in front of him.
Any fan will recognize the Goblet of Fire, who’s tournament heralds the re-birth of Lord Voldemort as a complete being again. (sorry if that’s a spoiler for anyone).
We’re again seeing Sirius Black, plus the portal to the underworld, the globe of the prophecy, and the masks of the Death Eaters here. Representing the confrontation between the Order of the Pheonix and Lord Voldemort’s closest followers.
Much of the Half-Blood Prince is focused on Lord Voldemort’s past, including his childhood where he was known as Tom Riddle. So it’s only fitting really, that this book cover would focus on him. It’s also a testament to Dylan Pierpont’s skill that he’s made the young boy so dark and menacing, bringing to mind such devious children as Damian from The Omen.
And we come to the end. With Deathly Hallows focusing on Voldemort’s snake Nagini surrounded by the heads of the fallen in the final war between good and evil.
Creepy, right? I don’t know about the rest of you, but I feel like re-reading the series again now.
