Bob M Comments: That’s the most humiliated-looking hamsa eye I’ve ever seen.

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: 8.90 out of 10)

    Whatever you do, giant eye, don’t look up!

    Is this a giant hand, or a normal (but fat, with an eye in the middle of it) hand with tiny (but fat, and covering their goolies) men on it?

    Please wash your hands. Better wash the big one, too.

    ‘Five challenges, sire.’

    Good thing that the middle Galactic Watcher has his two companions with him or he’d be pissing everybody off.

  6. Rags Says:

    LOL!!

    I think the galactic watchers should look in the mirror before juding humanity.

    My proctologist has this cover as a poster on his wall. I can’t quite put my finger on it, but the PSI High cover artist looks to be heavily influenced by parapsychological research for substance induced dreams crossed with daddy (daddies?) issues from his childhood commune. Ah, the 60s.

    The WATCHERS… an ancient race, doomed by tragic fate to travel the cosmos, always watching… but forbidden by oath to meddle with the pants of other civilizations.

    @Fred: not exactly the most original idea even when Marvel did it – http://ansible.co.uk/writing/damned.htmlhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Weapon_Makers.

    Van Vogt was put on this Earth to make Steve Ditko seem well-adjusted by comparison.

    @Nephilim: Nourse was a medic, so I don’t imagine he was best pleased with this cover himself.

    Those are the weirdest finger puppets I have ever seen … and the most modest!

  14. THX 1138 Says:

    @Tat Wood: Are you sure Nourse wasn’t a Scout Leader too? Dib dib dib…

  15. random Donna Says:

    The Galactic Watchers seem awfully self-conscious. Is the challenge for humanity not to think about their naughty bits?
    I can’t quite decide if the eye looks more humiliated, or more disgusted in a world-weary, Marvin the Android way. “Psi High! Don’t talk to me about Psi High.”

  16. Adam Roberts Says:

    I want to know if the finger-men’s fingers also have little finger-men on them. And so on, recursively.

  17. Bob M Says:

    @Adam: Only for the first three repetitions. After that, it’s on to centaur hands.

  18. Tam Fu Wing Says:

    This is without a doubt the worst cover ever.

  19. Noel Says:

    When he wipes his arse or masturbates, does he close his eye? I imagine the little men would be screaming. This cover raises more questions than it answers.
