    I think there’s actually someone under that cape. The wind has just blown it into their face!

  2. A.R.Yngve Says:

    Dr Phil’s been working out!

  3. Herm Says:

    Well, for preference I’ll take the slightly more interesting wizard that DOESN’T resemble every Gandalf clone out there, and who is partway through a David Copperfield style magic trick with his cape. Look ma, no hands!

    Emergency ward statistics show that Fantasy warrior maidens are most likely to have injuries in the following areas:

    1. Cleavage
    2. Hips
    3. Thighs

    SI: you made me laugh aloud. You dog.

  6. Dalton H. Says:

    This falls under the Man vs Self category. Wonder if the wizard is marries to the wicked witch of the west?

  7. Adam Roberts Says:

    It’s volume one of a quadrilogy: The Western Wizard, The Eastern Eazard, The Northern Nizard and The Southern Sizard.

  8. Evad Says:

    The 1993 version has Trek’s Enterprise on it? Oh, of course then, shields up.

    TWW2K has a great Moses.

    In 1993 it was predicted that Jesse “The Body” Ventura would win the 1998 Minnesota gubernatorial race.

    A buxom beauty that’s also a lefty swordswoman? Bonus!

  12. A.R.Yngve Says:

    The clash of sorcerous powers… *KA-POOF!*
    The ringing of swords… *RRRIINNGGG!*

    Classic vs classic, if you ask me

    (this new Random Terrible Cover feature is terribly compulsive!)

  14. Tom Noir Says:

    I think the top cover is not too bad, although I note that it appears that the artist only bothered to think up one face and just varies the amount of facial hair they put on it.

  15. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    Second cover: Colbey Calistinsson or Stone Colde Stevee Austinsson?

  16. anon Says:

    Neither wizard seems too happy with their companion. Maybe they should switch.

    Wait a second.

    Yellow skin, bald head, blue pants, 5 o’clock shadow. Pretty sure that’s Homer Simpson.
