Good Show Sir Comments: This year sucked and Christmas 2020 is a grinch-fest. So let’s go back to a simpler, happier time when you could page through magazines (remember them?!) shopping for wildly inappropriate Xmas presents.

Presenting the Good Show Sir Megapost Cavalcade of Poor Christmas Shopping Choices!

1. This isn’t helping Santa’s chimney soot black lung

2. When Santa visits Miss Microsheen, it’s shiny boots and no red suit.

3. Give your wife a vacuum cleaner for Xmas and the Hoover will be the only one sucking your dick

4. The first rule about Booze Club is you don’t talk about Booze Club.

Have a happy holiday and we’ll see you in a couple weeks with our Olde Year Summe Up!

Now let’s all sit back and enjoy the He Man & She-Ra Christmas Special!

Phil’s Art Direction: That’s the Bradbury story about an android grandmother, isn’t it? A sweet, family tale? Right, so let’s have either a muscle man or a horse on the cover. Better yet, a muscle man who IS a horse. And so ripped, that even his muscles have muscle men on them. On a wraparound cover.
Published in 1972

Outstanding! Good Show Phil!

Who doesn’t love Swedish sci-fi covers?! Recall the fun we all had with Skeppsbruten på Tschai last year. We recently stumbled upon the delightful WordPress blog “enlitenbloggomrymden” (“small blog space”) which has a wealth of terrible covers from the publisher Lindqvist. These were published from 1969-1971 and I’ve included a few of our favourites below. Have at them and enjoy!

The Swedish Olympic Salamander Dressage TeamOch stjärnornas konungar dö

Plot a course, Mr SuluVindarnas Planet

Swingin' medallions indeedFrämmande Rymdskepp

Moorcock! She screamedSlutstriden

Good Show Sir Comments:

1. Swedish dominatrix says “your safe word is Ochstjärnornaskonungardö”

2. Flavour-sealed for freshness

3. Busted by the fashion police

4. Sluts-a-ridin’

Published 1969-1971

Yep that's Ireland alright... full of bondage obsessed Nazi gnomes!Click for full image

Grady Comments: I’m disappointed, to be honest. The back of the book says, “They speak German. They carry whips. And they are connected in some mysterious way with Nazi experiments carried out in the charming old Irish castle during World War II.” Meh, I’ve seen more charming Irish castles.

Art Direction: Nothing attracts readers more than nipples! It’s a proven trend that equals one thing, money! That is unless you draw huge nipples, a huge red women with an insane sparkling mouth wearing sunglasses and a guy running from a giant pinball. Hey! Are you listening?

It’s a Two-fer Tuesday: Müller-What-The-Fokker Goings-on

#1 Tat Wood’s Art Direction: “Look, we’re late to this whole Cyberpunk thing but I’ve got the rights to a book about a guy being stored as data. It was published twenty years ago but we can kid the nerds into thinking it’s hip and fresh. It’s a comedy but for Chrissake don’t let on.”

#2 Good Show Sir Comments: Tat lays down the challenge, but I say you can never beat the first edition. Those hardcover publishers only hire the best artists.

Bilbabalbaul? I've got a cream for that. Click for full image

Stevyn Comments: I’m ashamed to say that I was the artist in this case. A terrible cover for what is possibly the worst fantasy book ever written.

And with such great lines in this book such as, ‘The effeminate albino pursed his thick lips in that certain way to suggest he was male, but homosexual.’
