Ok moving into another dimension and... mini skirts! Sweet.. I'm staying here.Click for full image

Pictures cannot describe the shine I want on this cover. Eyes will turn and minds will be altered. I want… NO… I need a guy floating in the air in the ol’ Jesus cross pose having left behind a dimensional portal. Have some dude popping out only to find a sexy women in knee highs and a tight leather dress. It’s just like those magic shows……

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: 8.53 out of 10)

    These covers are truly genius! Just wish the camera could pick up the awful shine chrome that dwells on it’s cover.

    thats an awesome cover. Id read it on a train just to blind people who dare to look at it. Between that cover and my shiny head i think i could melt steel with the light.

    I think thats the same dude coming out of the portal as the one in the jesus pose.

    theres so much to say about this one… the font on the title looks like it was done in a primary school art class on perspective.
    the shine, the blue nimbus light arround everything, the shine.
    the scantily dressed woman calmy watching jesus and time travel jesus,
    and did i mention the shine?

    also, maybe its just me but the guy looks disturbingly like the main dude from “Sliders”. and with the portal thing there… i smell a copyright infringment.

    im gonna give it a 9/10 just cause its a hodgepodge of crap art stuck on a piece of tinfoil

    I was directed to your website via The Grauniad.

    I laughed and laughed.

    As a long time reader of SFF, I’m sure I’ve got more than a couple on my bookshelves. I will do some digging.

    Hey Roses!

    Thanks for visiting, laughing and leaving a comment 🙂

    Any terrible covers you have will be a welcome addition to the collection we have going here.

    The guy floating in the air seems to have tiny legs, although the legs of his clone coming out of the portal are normal sized. Also the clone seems to have a too short left arm although it’s difficult to tell because the arm is contorted into a bizarre shape like it’s either broken or he’s doing a “walk like an Egyptian” pose.

  6. SI Says:

    Good insight! 😀 The legs are small… but on even closer inspection have I just noticed… are they both wearing some sort of body armour that has shoulder pads?

    It is really hard to take pictures of these books because of the chrome shine they have.

  7. CSA Says:

    haha nice observations! the arm in particular is totally freaky… sometimes with the truely great covers you miss the fine details that set them apart from the rest of pack.

    “When A&E cancelled his television show ‘Mindfreak’, Criss Angel was forced to seek work in other media. Alas, his was a small and focused skill set.”

    So let’s see… we have a girl in a leather dress, sitting on the side of a swimming pool (as one does). A portal has opened in the side of the swimming pool and a chap with a gun and an outfit that is going to be VERY uncomfortable when wet is stepping out of it. But even as he does so, ANOTHER portal opens on top of that portal, only this one is shaped like the cross-shaped chap who is popping out of it.

    The whole thing is back-lit in a rather implausible manner.

    Brilliant, or sheer genius? YOU DECIDE.

    Nailed it…!

  11. Anna T. Says:

    I think the reason for Guy on Left’s odd arm position is because he’s coming out of a portal and his arm’s braced against it. But yeah, Anatomical Issues up the wazoo. And the Jesus pose cracks me up.

  12. GSS ex-noob Says:

    Can we get an “oh so shiny” here?

    And what’s portal guy got on his right hand?

    Is neo-Jesus casting a shiny glowing shadow of himself onto portal guy?

    Scantily clad girl is looking bored for good reason.
