Are they supposed to be gigantic aliens or is the scale completely off?

Alien:  Into Niagara Falls.

Actually looks not bad.  Better than the recycling we've been getting.

On Titans website it says the book will have 560 pages and on Amazon it says 340...

Charybdis is a whirlpool from the Odyssey (hence the art) and is pronounced ka-rib-dis.

But I'm so pleased that Titan is actually hiring artists for cover art!

It could be two possibilities:

1) One of the two websites is wrong (I would trust Titan Books itself more).

2) One refers to the hardcover edition and the other refers to the paperback edition.

EDIT: I think I remember Alex White mentioned the highest figure (although I don't remember where I read it).

So, is story gonna take place in some watery setting ? There's potential for some neat visuals. Alien coming out of waterfall or with droplets on its head, blood mixing with water etc. I know it's in words but I remember not having trouble imagining how Cold Forge looks

I know.  Just living near Niagara Falls reminded me of it visually.  It's not a bad cover.  I like the use of blue.

It's still not great in general. But compared to the usual Titan "efforts" it's a masterpiece.

Charybdis certainly implies that.
