    If it’s got pointy ears it isn’t Roman, it’s Romulan.

    Something went terribly wrong with his S’mores.

    @B’mancer: That looks rather a bit like HR Giger with a Ricardo Montalban wig. So maybe he’s wondering where the proboscis is on the graham crackers and why the marsh-mallows aren’t turning into snakes.

    If Zathras drops the red-hot sword in battle he will be killed. If Zathras doesn’t fuse the tip back on and have a sword, he will also be killed,.Either way it is bad for Zathras.

  7. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @Tat: that sounds like the setup for a surprisingly good remake of that famed Keanu Reeves production Speed.

  8. Anna T. Says:

    Point one: We all know the cover artist clearly took some inspiration from a certain famous fantasy saga.

    Point the second: Is that guy’s spear on fire, or something?

  9. Tat Wood Says:

    @ Anna T.: Well, if he’s German he probably grew up with everyone saying ‘don’t mention the War’, which must have made him curious about the whole Wagner thing and Siegfried.

    That thing in his right hand, it’s a condom isn’t it? And since it’s glowing it contains magical semen, right? Also, I’m extremely happy to report that I have no idea where I’m going with this.

    It’s always unfortunate when a German book title begins with the word “Sieg…”
    (Too soon?)

  12. HappyBookworm Says:

    What I see is a German-descended elf born on a planet called “Rome” now meditating with the aid of the Spear of Electromagnetism and a radioactive Clovis point. Just about covers the data, I think.

  13. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    The author doesn’t list it on his home page.

  14. Scott B Says:

    Speaking of Das Font Probleme, is that an umlaut on the O or an unterlaut on the E?

  15. DaveM Says:

    Obviously lifted from Frank Millers graphic novel of The Silmarillion 🙂

  16. A.R.Yngve Says:

    You mean the one that starts like this?:

    “I love orcs. No matter what you do to them, you don’t feel bad.”

  17. DaveM Says:

    @A.R.Yngve: Oh good show sir! Well played indeed! (Dons Top Hat and White Gloves, stands and politely applauds).
