    The banned episode of ‘Lidsville’.

    I thought the Commies had Mars and the Nazis had the secret underground base in Antarctica.

  8. Bibliomancer Says:

    @fred – Actually, the Nazis have the Moon. Check out that documentary movie Iron Sky.

  9. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    One of the best books of 2015, along with Batgirl Vol. 1 and Bitch Planet.

    Geez, poor Matt Damon just cannot catch a break!

  11. Anna T. Says:

    1) A deliberately terrible throwback attempt.
    B. The artist had just come from a burlesque show, remembered she had to do a cover for a book entitled “Gestapo Mars”, and in a last-minute rush came up with this.
    C. or 3) It was suggested by someone at the publisher, because they really wanted goose-stepping dancers wearing stilettos with flying saucers for heads.

    (iv) You decide!

    Is there Cabaret on Mars?

  13. Tat Wood Says:

    The first design for Davros was almost right…

  14. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    The Bell Jar like you’ve never seen it before!

    Wait till you hear their rendition of Love Power!

  17. B. Chiclitz Says:

    Not sure it’s a good idea to be firing ack-ack guns in space. The recoil alone will kill your orbit.

  18. B. Chiclitz Says:

    Oh, and here’s what they look like without their hats.

  19. Perry Armstrong Says:

    One For The Dads’ Army

  20. Tom Noir Says:

    Honestly, I would read this in a heartbeat. In fact, I may seek it out.

  21. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    In the sequel to A Christmas Story, The Old Man becomes fascist and the Battle of the Lamp moves to Mars.

  22. anon Says:

    You get your book published so naturally you start insulting other people on the cover, like calling them “genius”.

  23. A.R.Yngve Says:

    Dumkopf! I said ze helmets should be verdamten three DECIMETERS wide, not three METERS!!”

  24. Anna T. Says:

    @Tat Wood: Are you saying Davros got a sex-change surgery?

  25. Tat Wood Says:

    @Anna T.: Stilettos are handy when picking your way through hand-mines.

  26. Anna T. Says:

    @Tat Wood: If they only got your shoe, then maybe it might work. Or they’d break the stiletto heel. I’d like to see that illustrated sometime, stilettos being the most impractical footwear I can possibly think of, especially for a battlefield.

  27. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @Tat, Anna: Battlefield stilettos, or a close approximation thereof. That’ll be £1.

  28. Perry Armstrong Says:

    I see a battlefield stiletto on a gam,
    Scaramouche, Scaramouche,
    will you do the Goose-Step-O?

  29. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    Victor Gischler’s novel–eep!

    Not another one of those Pegida marches!

    I’m so confused. Now who’s the Red Army?
