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.

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?

E Comments: According to my husband, his dog chewed up the cover of this book. I think the dog was making a statement. Like why the hell are those people sitting in a hollowed-out asteroid?

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.
