Happy New Year!

And so the world has spun, strutted and wobbled its way around the sun yet again! We’ve come through ruff storms, predictions of the end of the world and a lot of superhero movies. This leaves us though with one eternal question, will anyone find a cover to top I Sing The Body Electric!?! It certainly doesn’t look like it! But who knows, who knows eh? I am sure the year ahead will be full of wondrous treasures!

Thanks to everyone for sending in all the covers we’ve posted over the year! And thanks to everyone who leaves a comment. Oh they do make me laugh! Ah ha ha ha ha… ha!

The top rated cover of the year:

She may of had three bottoms and lived in a severed foot. But she would never date something with a Mohawk!Click for original post

A personal favourite:

Back in my day it wasn't considered a night out unless you woke up half buried in a field surrounded by mangoes!Click for original post

CSA Chooses Lizard shield attack:

Ah John... you realise... you're not actually hitting the lizard!Click for original post

And finally, just for the double triple Ting!

Most men have horses... I have a... mmm... scaly chicken thing... yeah... WOOO!Click for original post
