Tat Wood Comments: It’s exactly like a Breughel. If he’d done the poster for a straight-to-video sequel to ‘Dark Crystal’ about a Yeti, sorceress and a woodchuck.

More Cocker's Mad Gods and EnglishmenClick for larger image

Verylatetotheparty Comments: More Moorcock. The next book in the series after “The Jewel In The Skull” and a similar GSS suitable standard of cover art. The cover of the third book is disappointingly not nearly as bad. Published in 1975, it might also qualify as an early example of Orange and Teal, (although it’s come out more pinkish in the photo).

Badger Books are the bomb! Stinkbomb. We’ve gotten a number of Badger covers over the years, most of which have sat unused (mainly because Tag Wizard couldn’t meet the high bar we set for alt-text humour). So we figured if we piled enough Badger Books into one heap they would reach critical mass and burst into flames, solving our problem.

So let’s have a go at our first Badger Books Megapost. Today’s theme is

Damsels in Distress,

or, Badger those Babes!

or, BEHIND YOU! RUN!

She'd run faster but her skirt won't allow itThe Girl From Tomorrow

Hey that's the number plate of my car!U.F.O. 517

I've got more pulsating cells to show youNight of the Black Horror

I hate these new dance club spotlightsMind Force

Good Show Sir Comments:

1. “I come from the future to … rock your world!”

2. Whence did they come? Thence must we run! Hence.

3. “Get away from me, Nerd!”

4. This is where you’d expect to find Bow-tie Man!

Thanks to Marvin and Roger T. for sending these bad boys in.
