    ‘Your ultimatum is about as threatening as a one legged man at an ass kicki….let me rephrase that.’

  2. THX 1138 Says:

    What’s the score from the judges? “None, buttman!”

  3. Perry Armstrong Says:

    “It doesn’t matter how far I take it or what I have on, when I say no, it means NO!”

    Those are not toys! You put them down at ONCE and behave like proper gentlemen, or it’s the ‘Sorry Seat’ for the BOTH of you!

    Ultimatum from the Aliens:
    “Hey, we deserve a capital “A” in the SUBTITLE. Dickson’s name and the title are in full caps. What’s that about? Reset that cover or else, or else, or else somebody’s gonna dance!”

  9. Noel Says:

    I’m personally more worried about that console behind them.

  10. Perry Armstrong Says:

    “Spiggott! Ah-ahh!

    “NONE BUT MAN: Ultimatum from the aliens”

    Coming to Broadway this summer!

    (And that guy’s right leg is most likely hooked around the alien’s body. ‘Cause they’re slow-dancing, obviously. It does make me wonder, though, what kind of ultimatum the aliens are delivering.)

  12. Tag Wizard Says:

    I just noticed that they had to put a few extra space characters in the subtitle between “Ultimatum” and “from” so as to not block the view of the gun.

    I’m giving them the “font problems” red card tag for this foul.

  13. B. Chiclitz Says:

    @Tag W—I didn’t want to annoy you with that request, so I am glad to see in your wisdom you came to this conclusion yourself. In addition to the extra spacing, I hope you would include the lower case “a” for aliens as also a symptom of problematic font thinking on the part of Daw.

    No, no, dear Tag, I don’t expect (sniffle) any credit (sniffle, sniffle); one gets used to being unsung . . . .

  14. Tat Wood Says:

    They should have pitted the man in the white all-over condom against this guy (and now I’ve got the Star Trek gladiator music running around my head).

  15. Ikari Gendo Says:

    I’ve seen enough yaoi hentai to know where this is going.

  16. A.R.Yngve Says:

    Typical newbie mistake! A couple should always agree on who leads BEFORE they start dancing.

  17. A.R.Yngve Says:

    That is the most disturbing spaceship control stick I have ever seen. It’s time for a “NSFW Spaceship” tag.

  18. HappyBookworm Says:

    The one word that sprang to mind with this cover was “overwrought”…It’s like these two were trying to strike the most epic fight pose ever and way, way over did it.

  19. Francis Boyle Says:

    “That is the most disturbing spaceship control stick I have ever seen.”

    “I swear doctor I was, er, fighting this alien and I just sorta fell on it.”
