I really love this cover, it speaks to me of a child like joy of life or possibly of a homeless mans joy of life, more specifically, a homeless man whos best friend is a killer whale… I shed a single tear when i saw the reprint cover , it was like being told santa wasnt real
Of course the hero’s name would have the word “knob” in it. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. Worth $2000 at least, so long as he doesn’t want to marry another dude. Unless that killer whale is a dude. Then … well … I’m going to stop talking now.

The anatomy on the killer whale is off. Killer whales have actual snouts, meaning that their fronts don’t end bullet-shaped like hers. Yes, it’s a her, you can tell from the dorsal fin, which is awfully far forward. The eye is out of place, it should be further up and a bit back.The pectoral fins should be in front of the dorsal fin. Also, there’s a hairy git riding her, which is goofy. Unless you’re wearing armour and your son’s life is on the line (and God help you if you get that ref!)
