    Back in the 80s, he also apparently slipped something into the drink of a cover artist.

    You could make some easy money by peddling this book to conspiracy nuts:

    “See? This blows the lid off Barack Obama’s secret alien/Muslim/Socialist/Illuminati/Cyborg/Whatever plot!”

    Cover repurposed from ‘iDidIt’ by O.J. Cyborg.

    Man, that Gotham TV show just gets all the villains wrong.

    Meh. Just your generic ABC Afterschool Special. Internet addiction probably.
    I had forgotten all the ‘before they were stars’ talent that appeared in those.

    @Tom: NOPE-100.

    Hanna-Barbera’s ill-fated mashup of ‘Super Globetrotters’ and
    ‘Gilligan’s Planet’

    (These really happened: )

    Michael Jackson’s plastic surgery inspiration?

    This absolutely reeks of mad science. Attempting to combine the heads of two different people (one of whom might have been somewhat undead) into one and implant cybernetic implants? Yeah, I’m predicting some kind of cranial explosion within the next few minutes.

    Once again, the tragic risks of exploding-pipe-freebasing show themselves. RIP Richard Pryor.

    What’chu talkin’ ’bout, Willis?

    Black in Space

    February is Black History Month! We should take the opportunity to honor such persons of African descent as Charles Drew and Mary Seacole. And, of course, black people can grace the worst Sci Fi/Fantasy covers as well as people of any colour. Kudos to GSS, for their progressive attitude to race!

    Well, there wasn’t a Super Globetrotters/Gilligan’s Planet crossover, but there _was_ a Gilligan’s Island movie in which the Globetrotters had to beat a team of robots in a basketball game to save the island from an evil corporate raider.
