Future fashions are so fun.Click for full image

Scott’s Art Direction: So there’s this rocket, that’s also a dude with an afro, taking off through a thundercloud that’s coming out of a water faucet, and the cloud’s holding some sort of city or something. Just trust me.

The phone always rings when your just in the shower... phasing into a parallel world!Click for full image

Art Direction: Hey remember that time I had too many of those strawberry “stickers.” It was hilarious, I was all like, ‘OH GWAD help me! I’m fading into another world!’ Lets just draw that, expect, miss out the parts with my genitals. Keep the moustache though…

Damn this magical nakedness. No need for the censor sheep yet again!

Joachim Comments: Girl with strategically placed stars (of course). Chola eyebrows and bleached blonde hair with walking shark with gill piercing/oops, I mean a chain-leash…. And she has claws of course — see, the cover is derived entirely from the TITLE!

And here we see, kebab 'meat' being born.Click for full image

Skipweasel Comments: Is it an inflamed uvula? Is it diseased coral? Is it something the graphic artist found in Friday’s coffee mug on Monday morning? NO! It’s – er – utterly unrelated to anything on this planet or Mars as far as I can tell.

Jaan Comments: Surprisingly, this is actually a murder mystery. Note the Kirby signature. Hopefully Jack never sank this low.

OK kids who wants to go to Ellison Wonderland? No one?!? Well... yea... too much LSD there.Click for full image

Matt Comments: Whatever is going on in Mr. Ellison’s mind, if that’s who the gent on the cover is supposed to be, it seems to involve a Tattooiene-esque castle while he speaks of an alien feigning submission in a bespoke suit. Perhaps too much spicy pizza before bed?

Ah the 'Napoleon + Space = Awesome' equation!Click for full image

April’s Art Direction: So there’s this cosmic checkerboard, right? And on it we’ll have Alexander the Great, a Samurai, and Napoleon just kind of chilling out, each in their own separate square, completely unaware of anything around them.Now we just sit back and wait for the money to roll in.

I hate it when little people get stuck in my teeth!Click for full image

Scot’s Art Direction: For this one we’re going dystopian agony. So, nuclear explosion! And a prison wall with people falling from it to their deaths, but get this, the wall is also a screaming face! With an eyeball being stabbed by a needle! That’s the stuff.
