So... It's not a dog... I admit that... and I have pretty much conjured a sin against nature. But come on, how can you refuse that face!?Click for full image

Tom Noir Comments: Now this here is a real fine used dragon, ma’am. The previous owner was a little old lady who only drove it on Sundays.

Darling... did you set the wedding guests on fire again?Click for full image

Tom Noir’s Art Direction: Now look Horne, you’re a good artist, but you’ve got a thing or two to learn. See, this cover of yours, it’s just not realistic. Does this guy look like he just walked out of an explosion? No. He still has body hair. The fire would have burned it all off! Take this back and I don’t want to see it again until it looks like he’s fresh from a wax job.

Happy New Year!

Well it’s 2011 and that means we have an entire year of quality book covers behind us. So here we will have a few of the best covers chosen by the Good Show Sir staff, helper monkeys or whatever.

Just want to say thanks to everyone who visits the site! I would have never have thought so many people would be interesting in joining us sharing these wonderful covers. Thanks to all the commenter’s out there, where would we be without your generous sarcastic undertones? Also want to say thanks to all the artists and writers we’ve had come along to the site, we love all these covers but sorry if we’ve caused any tears!

Finally, special thanks to the all those who have sent in and continue to email me covers! I apologise that I haven’t got back to everyone who has sent covers in and I do have quite the backlog but we’ll get through them all.. probably!

How could we not mention:

Steroids, side effects may vary.Click for original post

A personal favourite:

Unicorn: Not even that naked teleporting man could brighten up my day...Click for original post

Everyone loves cat people!

Ah cat people... you went on to make the internet famous!Click for original post

CSA chooses magic, wizards, unicorns and fairies:

Ah... I see the new year firework show is underway!Click for original post

Finally, well… maybe we should come back later:

Hairy palms.. silver hand... whatever you'll still go blind!Click for original post

Brian Comments: While I haven’t bothered to read this book, I can only assume we’re in for a lively tale.

The real lynx effect....Click for full image

Tom Noir’s Art Direction: Okay, this is a Celtic fantasy, so obviously we want a buff surfer dude who is spaced out of his gourd. What? I dunno, put him in a kilt or something. You figure it out, that’s what you’re paid for isn’t it? Anyhow, magic it up. Slap a shiny silver border on with the author’s name in a clashing red font to distract suspicious readers. Anyhoo, I gotta jet, it’s 4:20.

Stop that, you'll go blind!Click for full image

Tom Noir’s Art Direction: Okay, this book is heroic Celtic fantasy, but the question is how do we sell it to the ladies? I’ll tell you how: full frontal nudity. What do you mean we can’t – okay, fine. Throw some strategically placed splashes over it to please the censors. But just so people get the picture, fill the remaining cover space with pictures of swords.

You might remember this from here.

Seriously, why do all these guys shave their body hair?
Amazing! Many thanks to Tom!

Didn't you think to mention you could cast fireballs?
Art direction: I have two words for you: Magic Fireball! Have some leather clad guy holding an old school hunting rife casting it. Just make sure that the fireball is purple! Magic is purple…. right?

Thanks to CSA!
