There is nothing more manly than travelling like this... MIKE... did you bring your dog?!?Click for slightly larger image

Joachim Comments: Oh boy.  Too many unusual creatures but I’ll give it a try…  Shirtless man holding a puppy prancing across the planet with a flock of “birds”, on the back of a cockroach-like yoda-eared pig, escaping from laser beam shooting luminescent cilia-clad levitating mollusks…?
Published 1992

Actually, that cover IS a classical work of artI would touch it without protective glovesI have seen worse. Far, far worseInteresting, but I would still read it in publicMiddling: Neither awful nor awfully goodWould not like to be seen reading that!Awful... just awful...That belongs in a gold-lamé picture frame!Gah... my eyes are burning!

    Falcor was the pretty-boy of the family.

    Curses! THX beat me to the obvious pun! ;-)

    In the artist’s defense, it IS difficult to paint the inside of a hollow Earth so that you won’t have trouble figuring out what you’re looking at…

    Better than driving an oldsmobile.

    They say pigs might fly, and here’s the proof… but only if the hog’s back half is a flea.

    That quote at the top is AMAZING!

  8. Adam Roberts Says:

    The quote at the top is the best bit. I love the way they felt they had to qualify it. ‘Unfolds like something dreamed up by Edgar Allan Poe, Albert Einstein and Jack Kerouac during an all-night beer session at the end of the universe — BUT IN A GOOD WAY, YOU UNDERSTAND. IN A GOOD WAY.’

    Wow! I want to ask the artist why the guy on the back is holding his wiener dog. I want to ask what the laser-snails are shooting at. I want to know to whom the guy holding his wiener dog is waving. So many questions. Good Show Sir!

    Poe = brandy not beer. I thought the hollow earth was filled with Nazis plotting their return to power.

    Are those aphids sporting lasers, taillights, or rockets?

  12. Jaouad Says:

    Those are lightsabers, what else?

    I feel for that pig-pekinese-flea. (pikinea?) First, his contacts fall out. Then, while he’s searching for them on the floor, the pterodactyls drop fellows in blue diapers AND a wiener dog on his neck. His eyes show such tired resignation.

    You know the head part of yon steed looks a bit like a rabbit that has been struck rather sharply in the face by a shovel. A very LARGE shovel. Or perhaps it’s a novelty nose made of plastic. If so that would still be the least strange part of it alp. And of course there is a wiener dog…perfect shape to slip through those narrow openings.

    This is what the X-Games will look like in the year 2112.

  16. Power Hydrant Says:

    This is the best one in MONTHS. Good show sir, indeed.

  17. Rags Says:

    Guy driving the limobugpiggy has a full head a hair, a manly beard yet no other body hair whatsover, DAMN his luck!!

    Can the book endorsement drop anymore names? Seriously.

    The pants. Why are the knees exposed? Apart from leaving the knee unprotected they will billow out like sails, causing drag and trapping insects.
