    It’s the way the two people holding eyeballs that are growing out of someone’s neck that really gets me. That, and the fact everyone is naked.

  2. THX 1138 Says:

    I suppose this is what they mean by “the naked eye”.

    “Stop staring at my pecs, Namor Jr.!”
    “I’m only trying NOT to stare at what’s behind you.”
    “What’s behind m — WAAAAHH!!”

    Who doesn’t love a woman with green eyes? Oh yeeeeeeeeah!

  5. fred Says:

    The only evil things on this cover are long hair and one green eyeball.

    “From the depths of a steamy bowling-ball planet, a nippleless evil rises!”

    One day in the gym, some joker put LSD in the steroids… and aieee…!

  8. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    Dateline: Texas, 1983. The Reverend Jerry Falwell has a vision of the world if homosexuals are allowed to marry…

  9. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    If you look closely at his hairline, then this is what you see.

  10. RachelJ Says:

    Note the singular. Just *one* of those things on the cover is an ancient evil, rising from the depth- but which?

  11. Tom Noir Says:

    @RachelJ: My money is on Spock Jr there.

  12. Bibliomancer Says:

    @RachelJ @Tom Noir – I will wager the evil one has dead eyes, no nipples, and a lot of sweaty muscles.

  13. Anna T. Says:

    @E.M. Faulds – Seconded. SO MUCH.

    In comparison to THAT, the guy with trees growing out of his head looks practically normal. Although the “revolver-wheel-filled-with-eye-bullets” still mystifies me.

  14. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @AnnaT: ‘Eye-bullets’? That’s ‘telekinesis’, Kyle!

  15. Perry Armstrong Says:

    @Dead Stuff (9): Subbuteo figures?

  16. Perry Armstrong Says:

    Groot: “I Am Groot!”

    Skook: “Well, you should get yer ass in gear and we’ll trow back some keggers and boilo at the ‘DC or hit the weed like a champ.”

  17. Tat Wood Says:

    Casting Charlie Sheen as Spock didn’t work out, did it?

  18. Valerie Says:

    Is it what they mean by Eye-catching? They are everywhere!

  19. B. Chiclitz Says:

    Instead of shouting “FACE IN TREE” as I often do (cf. DSWBT 9), this time I get to shout “TREE IN FACE!”

  20. B. Chiclitz Says:

    The reason everyone on Alien Planet seems so buff might be an overly intimate familiarity with Pilates toning balls.

  21. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    Meat & two veg.

  22. B. Chiclitz Says:

    So, has “non-papillial” absorbed “weird pecs,” Sir Tag? Good show of organization!

    I think not.

    You hurt me, Bibliomancer, you do. I do have my integrity! And a proper set of eyes!
