Yes another year has passed and we have been through a lot. There’s been a overall disappointing 1000th Good Show Sir post, and a few cat people… oh and some real world stuff but who cares about that! I am of course kidding about our special 1000th post, it was excellent, well thought through and certainly wasn’t rushed. I do want to say a special thanks to the Tag Wizard, he’s been a real help over the past year! His skills are excellent and highly sought after so please continue to suggest your own tags to give him more work!

Once again no one has topped the ever strong I Sing the Body Electric, even with Chinese Good Show Sir making web imps to screw around with our delicate voting system.

2014 brings our 5 year anniversary and hopefully we’ll have something fun and actually well thought through! No promises though!

So here are some excellent covers to sum up the year! We’ll be back on Monday 6th Jan 2014 posting as normal, so that’s whenever we can be bothered!

This years top rated cover:

Look at me... you think I'd turn down an aardvark?Click for original post

The second top rated cover:

Don could only panic as he realised a normal woman had joined his odd parade! lsdjf;sp Click for original post

The Tag Wizard’s pick of the year:

Well... whatever you do don't take me to the butt lines!Click for original post

And the cover that of spawned the infamous, “The Comments that Came to Sarnath,” incident!

Anyone got more words that rhyme with doom? Good luck!Click for original post

What a time to be attacked by feminist ape-men. Click for full image

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.

Tom Hering Comments: Chapter One, paragraph one – “Outside the bedroom window rain dripped steadily from the tall Douglas firs. Isobel Dempster did not have to raise the blinds and look out to know what kind of a day it was. It was wet. It was the first day of June, when the whole world should be bright and sunny, but not the Skagit Valley in the state of Washington. Here it was wet. It was wet here yesterday and would be wet tomorrow, and barring some miracle it would be wet next week too.”

Adam S Comments: Apparently “The Face” referenced in the title is my 75-year-old grandfather. As a side note, I don’t know many people that can rock a chastity belt like the dude about to bleed out all over the ground.

No no... I'm pretty sure watching this movie will completely tell us how to defeat a dragon.Click for full image

You know what always bugged the hell out of me about the whole north verses south thing? No dragons or magic crystal orbs. The north frees the south of: dragons! Right there on the cover, with King Lincoln watching the battle on his orb! It almost makes me proud to be Americaglish… or whatever.

When you think of the great wars throughout time what do you think of? Romans vs Carthage? British vs French? Allies vs Axis? Well my dear friend let me pitch you this one: Dragons vs Lasers! And not just any lasers, flying robot lasers. I know, legendary… I know.
