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

Actually, that cover IS a classical work of artI would touch it without protective glovesI have seen worse. Far, far worseInteresting, but I would still read it in publicMiddling: Neither awful nor awfully goodWould not like to be seen reading that!Awful... just awful...That belongs in a gold-lamé picture frame!Gah... my eyes are burning! Feels so good!Good Show, Sir.... Good Show! (Average: 8.92 out of 10)

Let the great space knight leaf hat rifle future helmet hunt men in underwear tickle contest... begin!!Click for full image

Scott B’s Art Direction: I know the cover is late, so just give me whatever clip art you have lying around that looks vaguely science-fictional.  Guy In Huge Metallic Helmet, brilliant.  Old-Timey Person In Armor, Old-Timey Person With Gun, sure, great.  Wait, underwear-clad wrestlers, really?  You know I’ve warned you about that more than once.  Well, I guess we don’t have time to redo it…

LSD is one hell of a drug...Click for full image

D Plover Comments: Having looked at this often, I realise that the most startling thing about this cover is not the anxious bird man, the three arsed lady or the giant foot, but the super-neon numeral 4 that’s blasting out of the cover!

Brain Face wasn't exactly popular on CBEEBIES.Click for full image

Art Direction: A giant circular brain, with eyes I might add, in some sort of… drill vice! There’s no way it could look like a giant eyed cookie or strange bondage moon face. Right?
