    First, I didn’t see the gun and thought that beam of light came from elswhere…

    @Valerie: That would certainly be a healthy stream..

    You shoot while I distract the creature, baby.

    The tree seems to be enjoying it rather a lot…

    No eyes! That poor fellow has no shirt, no shoes, and no eyes!

    No shoes but it appears they aren’t lacking for quality hair care products or laundry service. In fact they are probably at the dry cleaners to pick up his shirt but there seems to be some disagreement over who is next in line.

    1. Haven’t had a chance to say this for awhile:
    “Face in tree!”

    2. Is that a ray gun or a revolver? Looks like an energy beam, but then why does the thing need a cocking hammer?

    3. Tiers!

  10. Tat Wood Says:

    Assuming she kills the tree-beast by this method, isn’t it going to fall on them?

  11. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @B. Chiclitz: look at her companion, and tell us why you think her gun needs a cocking hammer.

  12. Noel Says:

    He’s got wood.

  13. B. Chiclitz Says:

    @DSWBT 11—excellent point. This guy’s got over-compensating written all over him.

  14. Tat Wood Says:

    Anyone remember the hapless sequel to ‘Saturday Night Fever’ in which Travolta tried to jump the ‘Flashdance’ bandwagon just as it stalled and Frank Stallone did the music?

    This book’s cover must be depicting ‘Satan’s Alley’, the Broadway show in ‘Stayin’ Alive’. There must have been gurning trees and water-pistols in a scene cut from the finished movie.

  15. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @Tat: thanks for your concern, but no, I don’t remember a sequel to ‘Saturday Night Fever’. 😉

    Its a drunken dare gone horribly wrong as they generally do; she’s trying to shave his pubes with a laser and accidentally killed an Ent-thing.

  18. anon Says:

    It’s an ent being harrassed and made to drink pee at gunpoint by bullies.
    Just look at his horrified expression. This is so wrong.

    That guy looks like a refugee from an 80’s dance video, who has clearly just ended up in this world and lost his shirt and shoes along the way – but not his headband, oddly enough. The woman, meanwhile, has somewhere acquired a rather ineffective-looking ray gun, and they have gotten into a scrape with an irritated sentient tree.

    This looks “promising”.
