Frank McConnell Comments: “Modern weapons.” Would that be the crossbow, or the dish on his left?

Far, far, worse.Interesting, but I would still read it in public.Middlng: Neither awful nor awfully goodWould not like to be seen reading that!Awful... just awful...That belongs in a gold-lame picture frame!Gah... my eyes are burning!

    ‘Excuse me, good sir, dear lady, but have you accepted Jesus Christ as your lord and saviour? Could I interest you a copy of THE WATCHTOWER?’

  2. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    She’s wearing metal hands on her teats.

  3. Bibliomancer Says:

    Mrs Godman has the widest thighs I have ever seen on a cover damsel.

  4. JuanPaul Says:

    This is a cover of misapplied nouns, verbs and adjectives: hidden? terrors? modern? loved?

  5. Ikari Gendo Says:

    The exclamation point, which might deserve a tag, makes this title either an interjection or a noun of exclamatory direct address.

    Did you catch a whiff of that lizard’s breath? Godman! It stinks!


    Godman! Great to see you! How long has it been since we were stuck in that cage together in the pet store? I see the woman who bought you couldn’t afford clothes.

    “It’s OK, luv, there’s no such thing as dinosaurs.”

    @THX: Is that an oblique Beany and Cecil joke?

    Cat’s eyes. Differentiated mammalian teeth. Long waggling tongue. I think that’s the cat from The Simpsons.

    Wot no Aurora model kits tag ? I’m sure i have got this one in the attic .

  9. Tat Wood Says:

    Does Godman! have a strong opinion on Kansas?

  10. THX 1138 Says:

    @DSWBT: No, it’s a Creationist joke. They’re well known for their sense of humour.

  11. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @Tat, THX: well, there you go, then! 😉

    That crossbow seems to be a bit lacking in the trigger department. Clearly, it’s not the modern weapon promised in the blurb.

    If he wrote porn on the side, which it looks like he didn’t, I would swear this cover looks more than a little twincesty.

  13. Anna T. Says:

    Why is the damsel wearing a sleeping mask? Are her eyes extremely sensitive to light? Does she have uncontrollable eye beams? This is a mystery that must be solved.

  14. Ray P Says:

    The artist seemed to like nineteen-sixties big hair on the ladies. And I concur on the big thighs – almost Modigliani “Nu couche”.

    It has a Carry on Cleo look to it.

  15. Tom Noir Says:

    I presume that the expansion point means this is a musical.

  16. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    It seems that the ‘modern weapon’ is…a lens.

    There’s a certain pathos you feel in reading that Wikipaedia article, isn’t there?

  17. Ray P Says:

    His left hand looks like Plasticine or linked sausages.

    I feel pathos looking at everything posted here.

  18. JaunPaul Says:

    With medieval weapons Christopher Reeve raised a warning fist towards the nuisances of a mustard universe of lizards and Southern states—to score with the belly dancer he just met!

  19. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @JaunPaul: are you the same person as JuanPaul? And if so, is the confusion a data entry problem? Or could it be that JaunPaul and JuanPaul are the good and evil sides of the same entity?

  20. lctwice Says:

    Don’t really see that Joanne Worley Charlton Heston romance working out.

  21. JuanPaul Says:

    @Dead Stuff, yes one and the same, thanks for spotting that. Clearly no future for me in data entry.

  22. B. Chiclitz Says:

    This is a still from the pilot episode of It’s About Time. Sonny and Cher were originally cast as Gronk and Shadd. It didn’t work out, and their careers took a (slightly) different path.

  23. A.R.Yngve Says:

    So is this the novelization of Ruben Bolling’s hilarious comic-strip GOD-MAN? I think its original comedy got lost in the transition.

  24. Tat Wood Says:

    And in Anglocentric Humour, is his name Chester?

  25. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @Tat: I’d think “Chester” would be a better name for her. Those teat shields ain’t hiding much.
