It has been a while since we’ve had an Honourable Mention post, so following are some of the recent doozies that didn’t meet our strict, fiercely-enforced rules for cover submissions. Enjoy!

Leah Comments: I know it’s a tie-in, but this is definitely worthy of an Honorable Mention. That lettering is not actually black, it is bright orange metallic foil. I think it says a great deal that the picture is an accurate depiction of the featured aliens.

Leah Comments: Another Honorable-Mention-worthy tie-in. Working title: ‘Attack of the Fifty-Foot Fop’.

It’s the awesome month of May! Which can only mean even more honourable mentions!

Found these beauties in a charity shop the other day. Would you read them on a bus? Or try to complete a shiny unicorn puzzle on a bus? I know I would… just for the attention!

Have a great long weekend if you get it! Otherwise, just have a great weekend!

Good Show Sir’s Art Direction: You, my friend, are an artist! And a good one at that, so I will not make you draw just any old crap. Give me something like… The Birth of Venus… but instead of her covering herself up… have a naked guy in a bondage space suit holding an alien flower.
