Don't let looks deceive you... this chair is actually incredibly uncomfortable.Click for full image

Mirrie’s Art Direction: Sci-fi villians must be as campy as possible. Hmmm, maybe give him a chair made of antlers like Jareth from Labyrinth had, and have him wearing a gold suit. 70’s babe on the left of him, sinister chimp-surgeon to the right. And behind them all looms the Angel of Death, looking like if Peter Capaldi played Grandpa Rick.

Perry Comments: I actually rather like the artwork for this junior, abridged edition (even the title’s abridged!), but remain intrigued by the gentleman depicted at centre. Either he was already blind, or, assuming he’s one of the multitude blinded the night before, clearly thought it important to locate/don dark glasses prior to venturing outside!
