Tom Hering Comments: From St. John to Krenkel to Frazetta to this. The most egregious example I’ve ever seen of a publisher using an amateur artist to save a little money.

Yes!! May is so full of UK Bank Holidays which means only one thing… which the world eagerly awaits… a special Good Show Sir post!

Today I bring you a French Mega Post! Sent in by the wonderful Cedric *coughs* two years ago… So I am just posting them now. Maybe it has something to do with me currently visiting Paris with le wonderful Tag Wizard. So watch out, French bookshops! We’ll be looking for more!

Enjoy the post and to those in the UK that get a long weekend, I hope you enjoy it!

Fly around like that... you're going to get crazy locals checking you out!Click for full UNSHEEPED image

Cedric Comments: The blue bird with rainbow wings and of course bare breasts (the marketing dept. strikes again) is already wonderful but what takes this cover to a higher level is the man at the bottom left, staring at the bird with a WTF look on his face. Beautiful.

Cedric Comments: I can’t help but think the tiger and his friend the very stern bear keep bitching about their colleagues in the back, the hippo and his friend the fox (hyena? other strange mammal?).
Published 1983, available in English as “The Battle of Forever”

Nope... I really preferred when the giant gorilla attacked it... lets get it back in place!Click for full image

Cedric Comments: Fireworks! Giant face of a woman! Building with an antenna that goes straight into the aforementioned lady’s right nostril!

Man servant! Bring my my spare loincloth!Click for full UNSHEEPED image

Patrick Comments: The progression from slain beast through the submissive man to the woman serves to accentuate to a striking degree her dominance: her beauty, her haughty and self-satisfied expression, her weapon and last but not least her fantastic norks… Stunning!

Good to see busty adventures still wear watches!Click for full image

Jaouad’s Art Direction: We’re going a bit more classy for this one. Everyone always only looks at the boobs, right? Well, not this time! This cover is going to be about ears. Elf ears. On a lion.

Thankfully for us... none of those guys seem to be able to see out of those masks...Click for full image

Frank Comments: The cover picture makes me think of folks bringing knives to a gun fight, but isn’t exactly a situation from the story, although you can see the characters there: the antagonist, the girl, the adventurer, and some of the nameless drug addicts who do the antagonist’s dirty work.

Joachim Comments: Despite the pluralized ‘horse’ in the title, a naked redhead is far more important to include perched on “top” of the asteroid.

Good Show Sir’s Art Direction: Ting! It’s genius, you see. As many tings as you can get on there – I want the cover covered in ting! Oh and maybe a women in a cat suit… but don’t you dare leave her un-tinged!

Good Show Sir’s Art Direction: Imagine the future, my friend… men will be either glowing silver pillars of greatness or riding around on space microlights. Women? Well they’ll be in skintight body suits and stay on their knees all day. Sexist? No not at all, people will look back at this cover and see our predictions as genius! I think…
