The Mexican Staring Frog of Southern Sri Lanka has them in it’s thrall.
“Hey, my tits are up here!”
Bottom left: bald Roy Castle wants no truck with Hypno-Toad.
Seems that if you stare too long at the toad, a missile comes shooting out of your head.
Hey, wait a minute . . . every door is a door through space, isn’t it? I just opened a door and by jove it went right through space!
@B.Chiclitz – Far out man!
You must have licked a lot of frogs to get that insight.
The word that comes to mind of when I look at this cover is “random”.
@THX 1138 – Good Show Sir!
Looks like they added the rocket as an afterthought because the cover didn’t look “science-fiction” enough.
The model lady doesn’t seem to have any anatomical issues to me – that’s actually a plausible pose, her left leg is hidden by her dress, and she’s crossing her right leg in front of it.
Although @JuanPaul is right – I don’t see what this random assortment of people has to do with each other.
In a world of space-age over-the-shoulder drapery, the leather-vested man is king.
As it stands this cover isn’t too bad, but it would be great if it just had the background without the people hanging around in front.
Funny no one has mentioned those golden manacles. Must make it hard to don that tasteful wardrobe. Or to un-don it, for that matter.
The golden manacle…who wore it better?
I wonder why the artist even bothered painting the shadow of the chain on her dress.
This couldn’t be any more random if it tried.
All hail the HypnoToad.
That’s not a manacle, it’s so she doesn’t lose her fob watch.
I think that’s Dr. Evil on the bottom.
@Tracy, more like the Frankie Howerd version of Doctor Evil “Titter ye not, Austin!”
“Brazenly Marcos gazed upon the in-chained queens yellow toad as she pretended not to notice, gazing off into the infinite beyond. In fear of his base impudence her minions began frantically dabbing, dabbing for their very lives.”
I have the weird feeling that Captain Kirk would feel right at home here.
Ladies, this is what those high-heeled shoes do to your ankles. Health before fashion!
@ProfBeetle: please accept this slightly used internet.
@ B. Chiclitz 5 – Brilliant! My door is like that, too. Also, when I step into my apartment, it’s one second later than it was before I took the step. Is my door a door in time as well, in that case?
