    “And throughout the jungle one could hear their eerie, troglodyte chant: Truuump… Truuump… will make America greeeeaat…

    Looks like one of those all-male back-to-nature retreats gone terribly wrong.

    Guess which guy is now Lord of the Flies.

    This is actually an ad for the new “Shadow Briefs” by Calvin Klein.

    They are cowering in awe at the dancing of Mark Mothersbaugh.

    If the ninja thinks he can make these three Neanderthals into his effectively-trained minions, he’s got a lot of work to do.

    Ee, it were ‘ard life in t’Bee Gees when us started. ‘Appen we only ‘ad one neck’chain between t’three of us. Wor dad’d dress up in ‘is V-fer-vendetta mask, like, an’ whip us to get to t’high notes.

  10. misterbob Says:

    Brian Pern and Thotch,surely ?

  11. B. Chiclitz Says:

    @Tat Wood—re: Appen we only ‘ad one neck’chain between t’three of us.

    In fact, Genius Joe there on the right side seems to have no chain around his neck. He’s free to escape at any moment. Why don’t he run? Is it brotherly loyalty?

    The sad, sad reality behind the legend of Splinter & “the Turtles”.

    The problem is, their safe word is ‘Nephrolepidaceae’.

    Finding people suitable for television studio audiences gets harder every year.

  16. Tat Wood Says:

    @BMunro: audience schmaudience, these are the writers of ‘Mrs Brown’s Boys’.

  17. anon Says:

    @B.Chiclitz: Yeah, but they’ve also taken away his pants.

  18. Ray P Says:

    Death won’t get much chess out of this lot. Twister, perhaps?

  19. HappyBookworm Says:

    Not much of a jungle, is it? More like a savanna with one dead tree.

  20. anon Says:

    @HappyBookworm: Well, that’s the “after” picture.

  21. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @anon: Smokey the Bear has been pushed beyond the limit? ‘Only you can enslave pyromaniacs after forest fires’?

  23. Ted Lamattina Says:

    So anyway, I get being critical of covers, but good design is relative and book covers should reflect the period they came out of. Getting all design-snobby on pulp fiction? I don t get it. Is it melodramatic and busy? Yeah. That s kind of the point.

  24. Bibliomancer Says:

    @Ted Lamattina – I don’t think you get it exactly. Read the “About” page above. This isn’t an art critique site. It’s about having fun with the Sci-Fi and Fantasy we discover and share with each other.

  25. B. Chiclitz Says:

    @Ted Lamattina—it’s also about, in fact, throwing a few jibes at “the period [s] they came out of,” by deconstructing the covers that came out of them, but mostly just the mindless fun.

  26. JuanPaul Says:

    Looks like an Aphex Twin album cover art.

  27. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    Play Mr. Bungle
    Three men in the jungle
    And who do you think they be?
    The artist, the author,
    The creative director
    Turn them out, slaves all three!
