'He's leering at me, Brad. Do something!'Click for larger image

Dionysius Rogers Comments: It’s helpful that the three characters are numbered on their uniforms to verify the count. So that big fork-tongued face is a “city state”?

Zanthar Offs Many WorldsZanthar of the Many Worlds

Bubble BoyZanthar at Moon’s Madness

BummerZanthar at Trip’s End

Lazy EyeZanthar at the Edge of Never

Good Show Sir Comments: One of our good friends at Goodreads sums up Zanthar: “The bad news is that if you want to read an exciting mashup of Doc Savage / Buckaroo Banzai, John Carter of Barsoom, and the yellow peril tales of Fu Manchu, with just a soupçon of Lovecraftian horror, then this book isn’t it.”

1. Jeff Jones runs out of paint

2. Jeff Jones remembers he can’t paint feet

3. Jeff Jones eats the brown acid

4. Jeff Jones takes the day off

Thanks to Andre for sending these in!

Not to be confused with this or this or this.

Priscilla’s Art Direction: I want a manly cover filled with masculine symbolism. I want the cover to scream “look at me, I’m hard sf”. So don’t just dick around on this one. Make it pop!
