Man, I must look awesome. Pity I'm not actually charging at anyone.Click for full image

Nothing says, ‘I’m one hundred percent pure man,’ than a glowing sword, blonde curtains and a cape with some red velvet lining. We’ll have him charging towards the reader on his horse, waving his sword and smiling manically. Make sure the fonts have at least three layers of bordering!

Gahhh! I should have never licked that battery!Click for full image

Well magic is purple. Fact! So we are sorted for that but we need a way of getting magic’s amazing power across to people. I know, electricity… and some guy in obvious pain as he weaves his supernatural element. We all know that when you meddle with the supernatural all you get is that burning sensation of being electrocuted.

Thanks to CSA!

Cover yourself up women, yer distracting me horse!Click for full image

Most covers only hint at cleavage. Where we will succeed will be in the tactic of placing an actual topless women on the cover! Riding horse back along an alien desert. Oh, and she is being lead by a sort of Apache Indian bloke with an extremely long sword. And yes, I mean a literal sword.

Thanks to Craig!

NO! You twist to the left and YOU pull forwards. God damn tails!Click for full image

After significant advances in science we have discovered that there is one thing Dragons like more than breathing fire, eating ferrets or even gobbling down a sacrificial virgin women. They just can’t help but go after all the I’s in a word. So have them fighting for the I in Chris and make sure they have various appealing colours!

This is Thor, his favourite food is faces.Click for full image

So, how about a women of a darker colour? And by darker colour I clearly mean black, like really black. Like Spinal Tap black album black, oh and long white hair with scary eyebrows. And a strange furry bat-like creature on her shoulder. In the never-ending game of distraction it might take away from the obvious faux pas.

Happy New Year!

So, just wanted to do a little sum up of a few of the best covers we have posted and some personal favourites of the Good Show Sir staff. Just kidding, we don’t have staff, more like some sort of trained animal that has been taught how to sit correctly and not bite the children.

First, just a couple of thanks. To Justin Leego who faithfully does all the tags for the covers, finds out who the artist is and corrects any spelling/grammer errors I make about six hours after I post it. And to CSA, who endured an entire afternoon with me searching through the shelves of three second hand book shops over Christmas. We have quite the collection of covers to add to the site!

And thanks again to those who visit us here. We love to hear from anyone who comes along, so feel free to comment and you will be welcomed with sarcastic undertones!

One of our favourite covers:

Man I am so wasted right now... there is no rope.Click for orginal post

Another favourite:

God damn it, that T-Rex has got him another knight!Click for orginal post

Personal Favourite:

Stop playing with fireworks Tim and bloody shoot someone!Click for orginal post

Most under-rated cover, as voted for by CSA:

Blad women acceptable. And I can stand a man with four arms. But green fur!? Take this deamon! ah HA!Click for orginal post

He's a faithful lute player, even though all he knows is Stairway to Heaven.Click for full image

And it thus cameto passthat the Mighty Lord Weber created the one thing which could instantly bring tears to the eyes of mortal men. Together around the campfire elves sat covered in blankets, drinking mead, talking to their wenches andwieldeda singlelute. But most importantly and what would soon become legend,they hadridiculous ears.

Hope you have a wonderful Christmas Day!

Hello all!

It’s getting to that time of year were peace and love fills the hearts of many and an empty hole of pain fills our bank accounts. Also, it is time for us here at Good Show Sir to take a little break over the Christmas period. We will be back, in force, after the new year with a collection of covers that will make you laugh and your eyes bleed.

I do suggest you cast your family and friends to one side both on Christmas day and New Years day to check out the site. We will have a ‘special’ post on both!

Thanks to everyone who visits the site and comments! And if you do have any covers we would love you to send them to us so we can add them to the collection.

We hope you all have a very relaxing and enjoyable holiday!

– Good Show Sir

I have to admit I really loved this show growing up. Sci-fi mixed with complex morals. Wouldn’t be caught dead reading this in public though!

Thanks to Adam Roberts who comments:

I know nothing about this book. But I do know that’s not the way to ride a spider. In fact, I’d say that’s a Kid’s Spider, when the knight is clearly a Grown-Up. He needs to get to the Raleigh Spider shop and trade up a size.

Thanks to CSA. This breaks every rule in the book! I have no idea why you sent me this, you rebel you. If there is one man who can teach us how to bring up children, it’s the Cosby.

Really… winning? Green? With a gold photoshop glow? Really? Well best add an exploding space ship in there too. Oh and some babe in a space suit completely ignoring the explosion. Hopefully that will distract from our winning colour.

Leave this place, or I shall show you my genitals sir.Click for full image

Look, all I am saying is what good is a ‘warrior king’ unless he is the size of a building? A big building! If I was on a horse and in front of me was a massive magical warrior, glowing in the morning sun… Man, I’d run away back home and hide under my bed covers. That’s why we need this, we need it.
