Frank Comments: It’s hard to tell which ones are the Martians in this picture. They all look like some of that forgotten science was pharmacological and hallucinogenic. And if you get too close to that guy in front, he’ll help you understand what a bad trip is like.

Tom Noir’s Art Direction: Here it is, this is gonna blow your minds: a hot babe getting felt up in an open grave! But make it black-and-white so we can slip it past the censors. Put some bats in there too. OH! And make sure the bats have boobs.

Good Show Sir’s Art Direction: Well it’s a busy anthology so we should keep things busy on the cover. This is for Focus magazine… and we all know they only want one thing on their free book… mannequin cleavage! Just fill the rest with whatever you feel like.

V Coupland Comments: Well, it should have been titled, Off all possible covers. There is everything on such a small space! Naked woman running around with out-of proportion limbs, marine monsters and eyes, very big, desincarnated eyes. Just missing a cat man with a gun, to be really a must!

Good Show Sir’s Art Direction: A tasteful way to cover up male nudity? I know what you mean… how about we cover up his nudity with a naked women on her knees, in front of his “blade!” What? How is that even remotely sexist!? Oh…. well… do it anyway.
