Good Show Sir Comments: Another Chalker book? Does he send one in every week? I don’t care what the cover looks like. Get the new lad from the Unknown Artist Institute to throw something together. What’s his name? I keep forgetting.

Published 1988

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: 5.00 out of 10)

    If Gopher had successfully fought off HTTP as the world’s protocol for data distribution.

    Dress Down Friday at NORAD had a higher casualty-rate than in most organisations.

    The Diné couldn’t uninstall Windows 8 from their hogans, no matter how many lives were lost trying.

    Read the series. Can’t remember a word. Continuity is off on book covers 3 and 4 clothing wise. But when your claim to fame as an artist is little squares rectangles and triangles I’ll cut him or her some slack.

    Gustav Klimt wants his wall hanging back.

    The artwork does capture the feeling of when you have to buy a ticket at the train station, just before your train arrives…

    So I know the guy in front is First Nations . . . but then the woman in the middle is only wearing underwear, like she’s from the Stone Age or whatnot . . . and the guy in back kinda looks either African or Amazon tribesman . . . jeez, where IS this killer computer adorned with giant stone heads?

  9. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @Anna: goodness, you’re right! That is a lady! I’d thought it was a poorly-drawn gentleman. That would also explain why her neighbour is leering in her direction.

  10. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    I had assumed, based on the design elements on the walls, that the gentleman was a southwestern American Indian. But the jacket looks more like a Plains Indian style. What about the headdress?

    In any case, he’s no pirate in any traditional sense of the term!

    I’m not sure what they’re doing, but it appears to be an Olympic sport.

  12. Perry Armstrong Says:

    Now, I’m not saying the guy at front is “I am Kirok”, but he’s definitely pushing the right buttons.

    The art looks very much like the work of Darrell Sweet.

  17. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    Come and program this Zeerust computer
    Do not hasten to go to the grave
    Just remember the masks of the martyrs
    and the pirate who gave them a shave…

    Whatever this trio are doing, it’s clear they’re intensely bored by it. Maybe *that’s* what killed all the unfortunates whose bones litter the ground.

    Blurb, simplified:
    “The pirates were dead.”
