Yeah those are great covers. One thing about the whole Project Superpowers stuff is that they've had stunning covers. But, with the exception of the very first special (the #0 issue), the interiors have been rather disappointing. Not horrible ... but not great either.
I honestly think that if Ross provided some interior work -- like he recently did with that JSA Kingdom special -- these things would be bigger hits. Given his love of the Golden/Silver Ages, you'd think he'd want to do more than covers.
I think they would sell more issues by making the Romita and Ross covers the 50/50.
I hate variants and usually never buy two copies of the same issue. But I would make an exception for Romita.
I think it's a combination of them not paying him as much as DC is willing to pay for interiors and also his really heavy work load.

They should go with a traditional superhero style for the interior pages. That's the only thing stopping me from buying all the Superpowers stuff.
