MisterBOB Comments: A particolored unicorn, so start with where the horn is, as the rest is just a horse…

    That first one:

    Voice from radio: “Luke, you switched off your targeting computer! What’s wrong?”

  2. Dave Van Domelen Says:

    The rest may just be a horse, but it’s a horse of a different color!

  3. Dalton H. Says:

    For the last one: That horse looks like it has a huge tree branch for a tail.

  4. fred Says:

    If my parents named me Piswyck I don’t think I would have survived grade school.

  5. Jen Says:

    Hope you feel better soon!

  6. Phil Says:

    The Bones of God: I like the way the fontmeister has carefully curved all the type to JUST avoid the stuck-on price label.

    Unicorn: I was going to mock the obviously made-up word “particolored”… until I looked it up and found it’s a real word. I’ll just have to mock the cover art instead. Er, what a ridiculous mane! And, er, just look at those puffed sleeves.

  7. Dear Prudynce Says:

    Is that Obi-Wan on the first one?

  8. Smith Says:

    In the first one, is the pilot telling the old man “Damned space bums! I never asked you to wash my windscreen.”

  9. A.R.Yngve Says:

    The cover from A Tale of Time City MIGHT be recycled from an edition of The Virgin Suicides where the cover artist mistakenly believed plastic bags were involved.

  10. A.R.Yngve Says:

    “Was he a madman — or a Messiah?”
    THE GLENN BECK STORY

  11. arch9enius Says:

    A Tale of Time City does involve anti-radiation suits similar to clingfilm. (I wonder how many got used for fetish wear after the War Department handed them out>) aLso a time lady and unstable eras and Timey Wimeys and stuff. I recommend ‘Archers Goon’ by the same author, even though now the gas board, water board, British Telecom etc. are part of history it makes bugger all sense.

  12. Alessandra Kelley Says:

    The cover of The Particolored Unicorn is showing some serious abuse of the colors blue and purple. And what’s with Prince Charming’s bizarre combo of superpadded fancy Renaissance fair doublet and fluffy ‘seventies side-part?

    The castle in the background makes no sense in terms of scale, proportion, placement, or architecture. What are all those towers for? How would people get up them?

  13. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    BoG: if that’s meant to be the Almighty’s reflection on the spaceship’s countertop, why does it look so much like a foetus wearing a cassock?

    I can’t even start to understand the perspective/alien geometry of that space craft. What must it look like from the outside?

  14. B. Chiclitz Says:

    Thanks, MrBOB!
    1. “The Gones of Bod” would sound just as good, maybe better.

    2. a. Is that a giant blue tennis ball?
    b. Speaking of insane architecture, check out that tower—with all the tiny people
    on the veranda!
    c. Will the planet-sized green superball crush everything in its path?

    3. Love, power, adventure . . . just what order should they be in?
