Great use of the wraparound artwork concept. And good to see Roddy McDowall putting in an appearance, albeit without his Cornelius/Caesar/Galen costume.
And at last, a phonetic Jorj. None of your “George” nonsense.
Bonus points for being topical. Today is the Spring equinox!
So the events depicted above could happen any time after today…
Wait. I’m confused. This happened 11,000 years before today. But today is the equinox. So how is this Sometime After the Equinox? I think I need a solstice.
What is that man doing to that cigar box? And the ape looks rather aroused by the sight…
And they said Zardoz chic wouldn’t catch on! Needs a Zapata moustache, though.
Is that an emaciated woman? Causetthose erect nipples are freaking creepy otherwise.
I always knew tin cookie boxes could transport us through time, i freakin knew it!!!
Lance Uppercut was in for a surprise when he opened up King Chimalpopoca’s “Box of Protection” and discovered a hoard of unused condoms (trojan brand).
Seeing as how there were no human females about (just ape things) the horror was only then starting to hit home.
III HAVVE VERY LITTLE POWERRR!!!
@THX: According to the blurb he’s 12 years old, so the Connery porn-tache is in the future he’s fighting to preserve.
What I can read of the back cover sounds like the plot for an unmade Sid and Marty Krofft 70′s kids show.
Our hero on the back cover has just discovered that a Mystical Evil Shaman make an excellent ham-radio antenna.
And is a “Nightmare Epic” some kind of genre within the “Tower Sword and Sorcery Series.”
What exactly is the other end of that cable plugged into??
That’s the kinda of look a man gets when he looks inside his lunch box he forgot about for months.
Concept drawing from The Fly III: where a little boy playing dress-up and a Holocaust survivor end up in the machine together.
At the risk of annoying Bibliomancer, is ‘Jorj Bent’ futuristic space-spelling for ‘Gordon Bennett’?
Most ridiculous blade-to-hilt ratio I’ve ever seen on a sword.
Love the expression on the X-Box operator’s face—”Nyaa-aah!” Zoom in for full effect.
The only member of the Village People to turn up for the reunion concert.
YMCA wasn’t quite the same.
Everyone but Mr. Teasley looks so grumpy! The chap, the floating heads, the apes, even.
Be the envy of your friends, neighbors and local ape population!
Buy your remote controlled native american NOW!!

Looks like the long-lost first concept art for the SNL “D*** in a Box” sketch.
Jorj has no fans.
