Thumbs down BG Classic book series covers suck!

I think the re-released BG book series covers stink!...... couldn't someone have put a 'little' more effort to jazz it up......

They should have went with the original covers or used some type of modern CGI graphic. I think both of these covers were used on the old Marvel comics.

I remember the original cover art which was outstanding. The new covers hardly do the books justice. The only original art to be used was on BG classic#1 which is from Frank Frazetta. This was original one for The Cylon Death Machine.

Well I tried to insert the cover from the original "The Young Warriors" but I can't get it to work. It used to work for me but I now have an imac and it seems to not be a simple insert img command.
Anyway, my point is that the orginal wasn't very good either, it shows Apollo on the cover with one of the kids and a unicorn in the background and as you all know Starbuck was the one stranded on the planet.

Will they put out all the books in the classic series? I do not have the last two.
