Surrender to my power or I will break this egg!
Is this an egg-citing read, then? Or is it more thoughtful, perhaps egg-cistential?
The title looks a little scrambled to me, and I can’t help wondering if the art hasn’t been poached from somewhere else.
I’ll get my coat.
scary image and serious title, needs… comedy typography?!
‘I can only hope this bar of medicated soap will be able to help me with my terrible glittery acne.’
Skullface the Sorcerer apparently needs a shave.
“The egg’s OK, but I really feel more comfortable with a scythe.”
He turned around and, behold, it was Death, in all his skeletal greatness, in his cloak of green felt, some glitter on his face, holding a tinging! egg against a rosy sky.
I get the feeling that the art director and the typographer weren’t talking well about how the font proportions and kerning were going to work, until it was far too late…
Why does the skull look so jowly?
The reasonable thing to do is to make some egg salad.
He has to take care of that egg like a baby for a whole week without breaking it to pass his Space Home Economics class. According to every televised sitcom ever, he’s in for some wacky hijinks and maybe even some personal growth!
So, per the back cover, there’s a spaceship called the al-Buraq. That’s actually a neat idea. The buraq is a beast from the Qur’an who took Muhammad on a flight through the night sky.
Yes, I just like mythical animals.
Monty Python’s THE UNREASONING MASK
@Dead Stuff: He’s big boned!
“What is this thing? I just can reason it out. Maybe I should take off my mask first … nah!”
@admin: Why does this cover not have a font problems tag yet?
And why, on the other hand, does it have a hunk tag?

Oh. OK. I tried to be clever and mimic the upward shifting of the lettering… but it doesn’t work. Sorry.
The back cover talks about BOLGs. I keep a bolg myself, and enjoy bolgging.
Hey I actually own a copy of this one! It should be called ‘The unreasonable cover’! ;p Actually it did give me slight nightmares when I was younger… slightmares if you will!
@espedair – I won’t.
No, no. You guys have it all wrong. The font is fine. It’s just that the mask is sooo unreasonable that it doesn’t allow fonts to be typed over it.
