Tom Noir Comments: Strategically placed bat lion shields our eyes from his, uh, silver bells.
Published 1977

Actually, that cover IS a classical work of art!I would touch it without protective gloves.I've seen worse. Far, far, worse.Interesting, but I would still read it in public.Middlng: Neither awful nor awfully goodWould not like to be seen reading that!Awful... just awful...That belongs in a gold-lame picture frame!Gah... my eyes are burning! Feels so good!Good Show Sir! (Average: 7.95 out of 10)

    Gryphon has decorated his cave with a complete set of Thomas Burnett Swann collector plates.

    When Billy Smart’s Circus was bought by Dr Moreau, the results were not pretty.

    Wait – is that a gnome at the corner of the platform?

    Goodness, we’ve lost fred. Do we have another?

    It must mean something that I keep getting Flow My Tears The Policeman Said for the random cover.

    Dear Dead Stuff,

    My bad…http://photos.famousfix.com/ctn_30487223/bomba-the-jungle-boy-1949/…Bomba the Goat Boy…Johnny Sheffield look alike…schlocky 50’s retro vibe…definitely not PC re race-gender…R-rated…lots of nudity…men in ape suits…wrestling w/stuffed lions, winged, finned, fire breathing or otherwise…too much info…just spoiled the big action endings for the next two films…stock B+W African veldt footage from the 30’s poorly poorly colorized….strictly PPV/direct to video and remaining nostalgic drive-ins…not as much profit as my ‘Road to…’ films but much cheaper to make…the Roger Cormanish film series/actor-production staff development tool for my budding film studio.
    -moment of *clarity*-
    …shouldn’t the bat lion have pointy bat ears? Huh? Shouldn’t it? And why are they tied to a pole ON THE TOP OF A FRICKIN’ PLATFORM?.. I MEAN WTF!…IT JUST MEANS MORE WORK FOR THE POOR FRICKIN’ BAT LION AND WHAT IS IT WITH THAT FRICKIN’ RED BUNTING!…THESE FRICKIN’ COVERS ARE DRIVING ME…
    -*clarity* goes *poof* –
    …I’m thinking Cher for the heroine…wonder how she would feel about nudity at her age…maybe Madonna…

    How Raiders of the Lost Ark was supposed to end.

    @DSWBT: With Hellboy coming through?

  12. Francis Boyle Says:

    Silver bells. And cockle shells. What every well-dressed barbarian/demon is wearing this season.

  13. A.R.Yngve Says:

    Quick! Before the shopkeeper sees us — write a big “A” over the “I” with a marker pen!

  14. anon Says:

    @A.R.Yngve: “Cry salver bells”?

  15. A.R.Yngve Says:

    Doh! Curse my dyslexia — I meant over the “E” in “Bells”…

  16. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @AR:That will make it popular in some areas of Aragon.

    Wait a minute…

    ‘The mane in Spain breaks mainly through the frame!’ Ha ha ha! I R teh POET!
