    ‘For real under-arm freshness, use Magic Right GuarrrRRRGH!’

  2. THX 1138 Says:

    “I don’t think ‘ooyah!’ is a magic word!”

  3. SI Says:

    If I ever have my leg removed I am completely going to replace it with a magical light beam!

  4. A.R.Yngve Says:

    And the award for Tortured Grammar goes to:

    “Two sworn enemies caught in a web of magic and deception — between them they must fight to heal a dying world.”

    Questions abound:
    1. “Between them” — WHO? The sworn enemies, or that web of magic and deception?

    2. How exactly is that world dying? Plague, war, recession, spleen, what?

    3. Are the two enemies tiny insects shouting “Help me! Help meee!” with tinny voices?

  5. Tom Noir Says:

    Cover actually got swapped with a scene from Bill & Ted’s Homoerotic Adventure.

    If you remove the Magic Fairy Light that guy is yelling at his mom “Shut the door! We’re playing with Ted’s lute!”

  6. A.R.Yngve Says:

    “By Munnapor’s mystical moons,
    and the foulest booger of Kleg,
    I summon the powers of removal,
    and ZAP! goes your leg!”

  7. Unk Says:

    That’s right, play with the ouija board while strumming a guitar and you’ll get zapped right in the armpit.

  8. fred Says:

    The guy getting zapped, wassup with his neck size? Obscured by glow?

  9. Anti-Sceptic Says:

    Wow, that’s some strong odor. It melted the guy’s leg right off! The other guy seems to be warding it off by playing frantically on his lute.

    Joe’s plan to seduce an amputee goes horribly awry.

  13. anon Says:

    It’s always the redshirt that gets it.

  14. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    ‘This won’t make me pregnant, will it?’

  15. A.R.Yngve Says:

    If that orange support bar is moved just one inch, the titles are going to crash down on them like a ton of bricks!
