There is nothing more manly than travelling like this... MIKE... did you bring your dog?!?Click for slightly larger image

Joachim Comments: Oh boy.  Too many unusual creatures but I’ll give it a try…  Shirtless man holding a puppy prancing across the planet with a flock of “birds”, on the back of a cockroach-like yoda-eared pig, escaping from laser beam shooting luminescent cilia-clad levitating mollusks…?

Tom Noir’s Art Direction: Now look Horne, you’re a good artist, but you’ve got a thing or two to learn. See, this cover of yours, it’s just not realistic. Does this guy look like he just walked out of an explosion? No. He still has body hair. The fire would have burned it all off! Take this back and I don’t want to see it again until it looks like he’s fresh from a wax job.

Michelle Comments: I suspect the figure in the lower half of the cover found their armor just wasn’t enough to protect them from the title pun.  Look at the poor spaceman, crushed by the agony!  This is a follow-up to Matt’s submission of SpaceCops: Kill Station.  I thought maybe you all hadn’t suffered enough, and another one from the series just came into the shop.  Enjoy?

Happy New Year!

Well it’s 2011 and that means we have an entire year of quality book covers behind us. So here we will have a few of the best covers chosen by the Good Show Sir staff, helper monkeys or whatever.

Just want to say thanks to everyone who visits the site! I would have never have thought so many people would be interesting in joining us sharing these wonderful covers. Thanks to all the commenter’s out there, where would we be without your generous sarcastic undertones? Also want to say thanks to all the artists and writers we’ve had come along to the site, we love all these covers but sorry if we’ve caused any tears!

Finally, special thanks to the all those who have sent in and continue to email me covers! I apologise that I haven’t got back to everyone who has sent covers in and I do have quite the backlog but we’ll get through them all.. probably!

How could we not mention:

Steroids, side effects may vary.Click for original post

A personal favourite:

Unicorn: Not even that naked teleporting man could brighten up my day...Click for original post

Everyone loves cat people!

Ah cat people... you went on to make the internet famous!Click for original post

CSA chooses magic, wizards, unicorns and fairies:

Ah... I see the new year firework show is underway!Click for original post

Finally, well… maybe we should come back later:

Hairy palms.. silver hand... whatever you'll still go blind!Click for original post
