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!

    The show with everything – AND Yul Brynner!

    After finding success with Happy Days, Henry Winkler tried to branch out into supernatural horror.

    @THX1138: That song’s gonna be in my head for days now 🙂

    @Perry: I’ve made a hard man humble! Whatever that means.

  5. Tom Noir Says:

    What I want to know: is that supposed to be E. Gary Gygax up there at the top?

  6. Tat Wood Says:

    Alan Moore should never have been allowed to re-imagine Basil Brush.

    The back cover. Informations galore.

    I believe that cover pose is in every single Scooby Doo episode.

    @Tom Noir – I believe that is the signature image for all things Dangerous Journeys. Poor bastard never gets to move, he’s just stuck in the same position for eternity.

    That looks like one of the recent Saber & Shadow ladies. She couldn’t find her pants, but at least managed a robe.

    Yul Brynner and Shadow being menaced by a genie in a cheap werewolf mask, with a bearded wizard/puppeteer looming over them all!
    Sounds interesting.

    What’s trademarked here, Gray Gygax’s name? The title “Dangerous Journeys”? The wizard’s left hand?

  11. B. Chiclitz Says:

    Speaking of anatomy: 1. Somebody in art school must’ve mentioned to this artist that he or she did an ok job with hands, since this cover seems to be all about displaying them as dramatically as possible.

    2. Those are some powerful looking thighs, and his aren’t so bad either!

  12. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @BC: considering that in the 80s and 90s, TSR stood for ‘They Sue Regularly’, it surely must be all three and then some. In all likelihood, they tried to trademark the idea of a ‘book’.

  13. anon Says:

    @BC, DSWBT: Notice how they guy avoids touching the trademark.

    Filming a scene featuring the villainous Hood in Gerry Anderson’s exciting new series, ‘Thunderbirds’.

    Guys! Guys! Look what I found! ‘Mwuh-huh-huh-huh! Fight each other to death, puny humans! Two man enter, one man leave.’
    So, who’s the old guy?

  18. HappyBookworm Says:

    Man to woman: Relax, Aleena. If you look up you can see that old wizard is just playing with his giant, alligator man marionette again.
