    When It’s A Small World tried to rise up and seize Cinderella’s Castle, Disney were forced to resort to extreme measures to restore order!

    I am reminded of Black in Time, which mercifully lacked manmonokini.

    Yet another dystopian future where they still haven’t cured baldness.

    Martian Manhunter’s family picnic needs extreme measures. Those ants look just like people!

  5. THX 1138 Says:

    @JuanPaul: Too right, there’s only one man on the cover with hair, and that might be a toupee.

    Never saw a Ting! city before. Must mean it is shiny new or it has sharp spires.

  7. MisterBob Says:

    Nigel Farage would love this !

    There are fields – endless fields – where human beings are no longer born, we are grown. I didn’t believe it until I saw them with my own eyes.

    Considering the author’s name, it’s a good thing the anagram posts aren’t being made anymore.

    @THX: not the only reason it’s good.

    That beach is so crowded it makes the busiest beach in Asia look unoccupied. I would advise any claustrophobic readers to stay well away, as well as anyone who doesn’t want to get trampled by what could very easily turn into a mob.

    How does one actually threaten the universe?

    Super-Power: Yeah, well, you universe you, if you don’t play nice, I’m gonna, I’m gonna, take my planet and go . . .

    Universe: Yes, please tell me, where do you plan to go?

    Not to mention what’s with the hyphen?

    @BC: I used a railway-share.

  14. fred Says:

    Back cover. What kind of millionairess was that again?

  15. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @fred: ‘curiously exotic’…like the Ford Klai I used to drive.

  16. B. Chiclitz Says:

    @DSWBT—I thought the Ford Klai was “exotically curious.” Or maybe that’s the Opel Kadett.

  17. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @BC: No, the Opel Kadett was ‘curexoticalious’. You’re thinking of the Couk G55.

  18. B. Chiclitz Says:

    Ah, the old Couk G55, That was some ride. Especially when drawn into passages between dimensions.

  19. A.R.Yngve Says:

    These “lining up for the new iPhone” crowds are getting out of hand.

  20. HappyBookworm Says:

    @fred – He didn’t see the inter-dimensional thing coming? Expect the unexpected I always say…

  21. B. Chiclitz Says:

    @HappyBookworm—I guess being “ready for anything” doesn’t include passages between dimensions. Don’t know if it’s his training or his philosophy that let him down.

  22. Al G. Says:

    That moment when you realize you’ve walked off the edge of the earth but you didn’t notice because it was so crowded.

  23. JaunPaul Says:

    “So this world you come from, is it a nice place to visit?”

  24. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @TW: another candidate for the crowd scene tag?
