It’s a Two-Fer Tuesday – Genus Homo Edition

Good Show Sir Comments:
1. You know, when you think about it, every morning we wake up and find ourselves the only human beings alive.
2. “Don’t shoot him! I was just lending him my eyebrow pencil”!

Frank Comments: I think the cover art is meant to convey that there are three different stories within, but then there is… Font Problem at Infinity!

Frank Comments: I get the idea the artist read the teaser on the first page, “WHAT’S SO SPLENDID ABOUT WESTERN CULTURE THAT YOU WANT TO SPREAD IT ALL OVER THE GALAXY? I TELL YOU THERE’S SOMETHING ON TRIOPUS THAT CAN NEVER BE REMADE.” …and painted something that you probably wouldn’t want to remake even if you could.

Joachim Comments: I love most of Richard Powers’ surrealist covers — but, this one… Surrealism exponentially cheapened with a gigantic looming OUTRAGEOUSLY pink girl with strategically placed element models and a pistolled cowboy with a space suit and matching pink gloves and boots… And throw in some little men with spears, a spaceship and scattered cacti for good effect.
