“He’s the greatest,
Wherever there is danger he’ll be there.
He’s the ace,
He’s the strongest, he’s the quickest, he’s the best!
Danger Mouse, Danger Mouse, Danger Mouse!”
Oh man, I’ve got a different book by this author, If I hadn’t lost it somewhere in storage, I’d have subbed it by now. It’s just as weird a cover, and on top of that, the cover imagery is relevant to the story.
So does Piserchia’s work just get bad covers, or is this coincidence?
@andyl: The site you linked to is blacked out as part of today’s internet-wide “Stop SOPA” protest.
For future reference, that’s the “Stop Online Piracy Act,” a piece of proposed United States legislation which would allow the music and movie and media industries to shut down on simple request any website which carries, or links to a site which carries, or links to a site which links to a site which carries, etc…. any copyrighted information they don’t own the copyright to. The website must then prove to a judge that they are innocent before their site is reinstated.
Many prominent websites have chosen Wednesday, 18th January 2012 as a day of blackout in protest, including Wikipedia, Mozilla, and apparently digitalmediatree.com, above.
@andyl: I had meant my comment as a bit of a historical archive, so that future readers of this post wouldn’t be baffled by what will hopefully become a stupid little footnote. But looking at my post, it does sound like I’m lecturing you, which is not what I meant to do. I apologise.
On the whole I find that Europeans are way more informed about US politics than vice versa.
