Actually, that cover IS a classical work of art!I would touch it without protective gloves.I've seen worse. Far, far, worse.Interesting, but I would still read it in public.Middlng: Neither awful nor awfully goodWould not like to be seen reading that!Awful... just awful...That belongs in a gold-lame picture frame!Gah... my eyes are burning! Feels so good!Good Show Sir! (Average: 7.54 out of 10)

    Overindulging in the curried beans will do that.

    Jesus H. Antichrist in a waistcoat.

    The fart of the first world.

    You’ll notice how all of the dragons on the frame look like Spike, from My Little Pony.

    It’s an alright city… just don’t get a flat under his robe though.

  5. fred Says:

    When the Master of Evil unbuttons all the Buttons of Evil on his Vest of Evil while wearing the Robe of Evil and the Necklace of Evil while holding the Two Glowing Green Gems of Evil, the end is nigh.

  6. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @fred: those aren’t gems. Those are the Jujubes of Evil.

    Any moment he’ll start his EVIL Greek folk dance — beware, world!

    “Bow down before the radioactive avocados! Submit to them! MOA HA HAAA!!”

    @ARYngve: Ooh, do you think the next in the series is titled My Big Fat Evil Wedding?

  10. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    What this cover needs, now…what this cover needs is a ‘Coupon Inside!’ shuriken off to one side. Maybe an evil coupon. To make all of this evil so much more tempting.

  11. A.R.Yngve Says:

    I second the coupon… plus the tag “With EVIL Foreword By Isaac Asimov.”

  12. Anna T. Says:

    If they put THE Master on this cover, that could only be an improvement on the actual situation. He’s ACTUALLY evil. And also more intimidating than this “evil” hipster who thinks the height of fashion is a waistcoat over a robe.

  13. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    ‘I’ve been waiting for you, Obi-Wan. We meet again at last. The circle is–‘

    ‘Shut your gob, Darth Santorini.’

    @Anna T.: Maybe this is the Roger Delgado incarnation in his mellow, Cailiornian phase before we first saw him.

    “I’m, like, the Master. You can obey me if that’s your bag.”

  15. Anna T. Says:

    @ Tat Wood: That’s BRILLIANT! You may be right.

  16. Undecided Says:

    The title is somewhat misleading. At 500 feet tall, you don’t have to work to be evil, you just have to be clumsy.

  17. Ian Says:

    “Don’t rock the boat, rock the boat baby….”

    Beards are cool!

  18. Tom Noir Says:

    He appears to be holding lime jello in each hand which is definitely SERIOUSLY evil.
