Amy Comments: I wish this snap had turned out better but I was getting suspicious glances from the clerk at the bookstore. At any rate, high focus is not entirely necessary to appreciate a fat, be-earringed red Troll doll brandishing a sword whilst riding on an anatomically challenged horse floating above a cloud in front of an angry sun. Winds of Limbo indeed. Also, it says Moorcock *snigger*
Many thanks to Amy!
Matt Comments: All randomness aside, it’s the quality of the drawing that really stands out here.
Many thanks to Matt!
Scot’s Art Direction: A glowing guy in a suit with a dragon-shadow faces off in a forest against a menacing bunch of… elves? Orcs? No, done to death. How about a bunch of musical instruments?
Many thanks to Scot!
Art Direction: Look Moorcock’s covers are always strange. It’s like previous publishers took a handful of amphetamines before putting them to market. All we need is a big 80′s girls head floating in lots of clouds and some people on horses riding into war. No one will suspect any type of solvent abuse… well… until they read the thing!
GK Comments: There must be something a lot more interesting going on to his right.
Many thanks to GK!
Corwin Comments: The first time I saw this cover, I couldn’t take my off off it for at least 5 minutes in macabre fascination. The art work is amazingly detailed, right down to the untied shoe laces. Even so, three car wrecks, a space ship, and an alligator make for quite a combination with Jeff Martini and Katherine “Kitty” Katt.
Might be comedy, but I can’t resist a space alligator!
Many thanks to Corwin!
Tim Comments: Hot babe fairy queen, standing on slime-mold covered stairway to nowhere. Add in super-wussy fairy dude, you gotta feel for him, they put him in quite possibly the worst costume of all time. And the photo doesn’t do justice to the garishness of the blue background and orange border. And of course lots of different fonts.
Many thanks to Tim!
MisterBob Comments: Look darling, there be tentacles! But what about my little alien baby, maybe cat nanny can stay behind and continue to look bored.
Many thanks to MisterBob!
Christal Comments: This is what happens when you let your artist take Acid and then read Lewis Carroll.
Ending the week with more… romantic… literature!
Many thanks to Christal!
