It caused quite a stir, and features a dimly-seen figure which seems to be lurching towards the foreground.
Here's what I always wonder: how do these guys stay in business? You would have to be pretty foolhardy - or crazy - to give out a solid date for the Rapture. If it doesn't come to pass, which let's face it, it probably won't, then you look like a total goober.
