Sarah’s Art Direction: So there’s this guy, right? And he’s a lobster. But not really a lobster! Just has a lobster body. Uh, and really skinny arms. And he’s got a parrot for a sidekick, but get this — the parrot is a lobster, too! You getting all of this down, Steve? Ooh, maybe thrown in one of those “Manamanah” things from The Muppets, too. People love those.

Lets just see who that killer crab from the other day really is!

Sarah Comments: This cover raises a lot of questions. Are those pointed shoes? What’s up with his hands? Do all “galactic Machiavellis” keep the souls of deceased dinosaurs in their cloaks? Why does he look as though a slight breeze would knock him over?

Leggings and a dinner suit. Good look!

I smell something fishy....Click for full image

Don’s Art Direction: This is a humorous novel about an interstellar diplomat. He’s suave, he’s debonair, and everything in the book’s played for laughs. So we want a horrific tentacle-headed, four-eyed, jelly-legged alien leaping at him with a spear. And we can’t afford the tux rental, so just use whatever your model’s wearing when he comes over from his rehearsal of A CHORUS LINE. But add some muscles! Retief is a two-fisted guy, no doubt with mighty thews! We don’t know what “thews” are, actually, but we’ll know ’em when we see ’em and by God he better have ’em! THEWS!
Published 1983

So it’s comedy. But it’s not a joke on the genre. That’s ok right?
Awesome! Thanks the Don!

Jen comments: I was going to talk about his lack of spacesuit, or his overabundance of cleavage, or the protruding rock in space. Then I noticed that one of the strange ghost-images was smoking a cigar, and all words failed me.

Thanks to Jen! Good Find!

Seriously... wtf?Click for full image

I have no idea about the cover, we’ve had our best team on it for some time. Hold on.. what are you eating there? Meatballs? Man, what about putting some meatballs creatures emerging from some sort of alien pasta, with legs and horns!! That’s awesome! And here *squelch* we could also have spaghetti with coloured lights. Sorry, some got in your eye there…

Thanks so much to Chris R!

Werewolf thing... coming out of a space ship

Art direction: Right, so give me a dirty big white werewolf on top of an open space ship with some guy laying dead. Have the werewolf carry a bag of water or something and, you know, just make the whole thing look generally terrible.
