Book/Comic Book covers in the Photo Gallery

I recently noticed that various television series and films have book and comic book covers in their Photo Galleries.

The comic books are based on the characters from the series, but are new works/stories. These are not adaptations of the film/series (such as the official novelization), but rather "further adventures" stories.

Should images of book/comic book covers be included in the gallery, and if so what is the "Type" that the image should be listed as?

Book and comic covers are actually not allowed in our galleries, as you can see here in the image guidelines:

https://help.imdb.com/article/contribution/images-videos/image-guidelines/G27LPBQZA7EAZGJW (comics are not explicitly mentioned here, but they're covered by the "Images for which you do not own the copyright or have the necessary rights" section of the guide).

If you see a book, magazine, comic or soundtrack cover those need to be reported to our editors for deletion. Here's a guide on how to do that:

Thanks, that's what I thought but wanted to verify.
