    The “quartz” decided to really punish this guy.

    What could possibly go wrong? the blurb asks… and answers itself: He was backed up by the Commonwealth’s best equipment.

    “I’m backed up by British industry, British personal service, British quality control, British infrastructure, British catering… what could POSSIBLY go wrong?”

  4. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    Those are decent quartz crystals, I’ll grant the illustrator that. I merely wish to point out that quartz does not crystallise out of urine.

    I’m guessing those were wrong shrooms.

  7. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    It seems that there’s no back side to that power armour, and his buttocks are stuck to the icy sheen!

  8. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    ‘Don’t drop the soap!’ takes on a whole new meaning in Prism.

  9. A.R.Yngve Says:

    Now that’s original — parts of his exoskeleton suit are made of wood??

    Citroen have issued a recall for the 2004 C4: Morphing into a Decepticon is fine when it’s unoccupied but if it starts breakdancing with passengers aboard things get messy.

    He looks like a ten-year-old boy . . . stuck inside a spacesuit made for a dwarf. Yeah, something went wrong with the scale here.

    Why isn’t there a rainbow ting ? I bet BAEN would off insisted .

    “Do a crystal therapy course, they said. It will relax you, they said…”

    Perry wins with his pee comment haha I’m not even going to crontribute!

  15. L.B. Says:

    My father has that exact book! I read it – I don’t recall it being at all good. Loving these comments!

    On Bizarro World everything have angled faces and sharp edges. Except for stupid squishy humans. Them always getting stuck on something.

  17. DaveM Says:

    Don’t give me that “The Quartz be with you, always” crap! Just get me out of this thing!

  18. B. Chiclitz Says:

    I thought those prisms looked sorta 1957-familiar. Great movie of my youth.

  19. HappyBookworm Says:

    It looks like he’s just a kid in a red tee shirt someone stuck in a mecha-suit. If he were really “smart” like the blurb says, he would be doing something useful like fixing his gyros or at least reading his heads-up display, not gawping at crystals with his hand on the glass like its an aquarium…But would I do better in such a pass?
