    that creature is SO cute.

  2. Herm Says:

    It is! Very cute indeed. And reminds me of the Pokémon Lapras, but a lot more adorable.

    Interesting that the book’s tagline overlaps the artist’s signature…

    “Tonight on Panorama Egg – we investigate the exploitation of cute blue lizard monster things and ask: just what is the government going to do about it?”

  4. Smith Says:

    I presume that is a 3G Panorama Egg, which allows you to make video calls to worlds within worlds…

  5. Tom Noir Says:

    What’s up with the woman levitating behind the lizard thing with the stick legs?

    “Look what I found: the Easter Lizard! Yes, I am keeping it.”

  7. fred Says:

    That lizard has to be a Ferrari.

  8. Phil Says:

    Worlds within worlds within worlds? Only if one of those characters in the egg is ALSO holding an egg depicting a scene in which a character is holding an egg which is ALSO depicting a….. you get the idea.

    And that’s why we have never been able to suss out Nessie’s location within the loch.

    Also that guy on the monster is totally making the “See my sweet new ride, baby? Yeahhh, I know you wanna go with me to the Medieval Times prom!” body-expression.

  12. Book Wench Says:

    @Jerk of All Trades – despite the lack of realistic proportions on the creature lizard-centerpedy thingy, looks like the dark stranger’s rocking a lady-mantlepiece there. (And I cheated by looking at the book blurb.)
    But Ye Olde Prome is still an option….

    Look Jerry, no hands!

  16. Jerk of all Trades Says:

    @Book Wench

    – You may be right. For some reason I interpreted it as the person’s tunic wrinkling weirdly on account of the arm-raising. On second look though, it seems rather tight everywhere else, so it probably is a bust.
    (Unless the artist is just terrible all around)

  17. Smith Says:

    On looking at the way the lizard-centipede is looking up, it’s like it’s talking to the man with the implausible scabbard and saying “What? What’s wrong with my hat? Dude everyone is wearing grey hooded person hats in Xjjkrshkt this year.”

  18. Francis Boyle Says:

    Where do purple centipede dragons keep their genitals? Because that one is looking far too pleased with itself.

  19. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    Strike a light, now we know what The Unreasoning Mask was looking at!

    We also know why the reptipede is bedazzled…

  20. Tat Wood Says:

    @Francis Boyle: I think Anti-Sceptic may have answered your question. That’s how she’s managing to stay on while doing a Fonz impression and why they both look so happy. What the yellow-trousered observer makes of this is inconclusive.
