Tat Wood Comments: Painted by Emsh during a Cortico-Thalamic Pause and with an introduction by Forrest J. Ackerman, just in case the cover-art didn’t make you run away fast enough.

It’s a Two-fer Tuesday: Müller-What-The-Fokker Goings-on

#1 Tat Wood’s Art Direction: “Look, we’re late to this whole Cyberpunk thing but I’ve got the rights to a book about a guy being stored as data. It was published twenty years ago but we can kid the nerds into thinking it’s hip and fresh. It’s a comedy but for Chrissake don’t let on.”

#2 Good Show Sir Comments: Tat lays down the challenge, but I say you can never beat the first edition. Those hardcover publishers only hire the best artists.

Published 1990, 1970

Yes!! May is so full of UK Bank Holidays which means only one thing… which the world eagerly awaits… a special Good Show Sir post!

Today I bring you a French Mega Post! Sent in by the wonderful Cedric *coughs* two years ago… So I am just posting them now. Maybe it has something to do with me currently visiting Paris with le wonderful Tag Wizard. So watch out, French bookshops! We’ll be looking for more!

Enjoy the post and to those in the UK that get a long weekend, I hope you enjoy it!

Fly around like that... you're going to get crazy locals checking you out!Click for full UNSHEEPED image

Cedric Comments: The blue bird with rainbow wings and of course bare breasts (the marketing dept. strikes again) is already wonderful but what takes this cover to a higher level is the man at the bottom left, staring at the bird with a WTF look on his face. Beautiful.
