While I’ve heard that optometrists approve of staring off into the distance to support long-term ocular health, I don’t think that’s what the characters on these covers are shooting for. I’d call it more of a “What does my future hold?” sort of look. Recently I featured two bizarro covers that were the same, yet very different:

Well, I see we’ve got a third cover to complete the analogous cover triangle:

wewereherecov

We Were Here by Matt De La Pena.

Notice how none of these characters have glasses? I don’t think it’s coincidence, folks.
