That awkward moment when meeting your lizard ex-girlfriend on your way to work.Click for full image

Billy Awesome’s Art Direction: This cover needs a reptilian lady of the night and her pimp, and a pixie-hatted space businessman.  Oh, and something something time travel, so put a couple of proper Victorians and one of those tricorn hat guys in there somewhere.  Tie it all together with an orange Creamsicle theme.

Most aliens just don't appreciate a space suit with shoulder pads!Click for very slightly larger image

Sara Comments: It seems that this spaceman has crashed his (surprisingly intact) Z7F rocket on the planet of Floaty Corkscrew Mountain. I have to love his facial expression as he just stands there with his eyes squeezed shut and his feet planted, like he’s bracing himself for take three of, “the bit where I gettentacle-slapped by the angry insectoid-octopus-dragon.”
