We hold the gun like this.. so we can use our tiny hip hands for jazz!Click for full image

mosquito_wenzi’s Art Direction: So, to make these aliens look really alien, make the upper torso look like it couldn’t possibly be connected to the lower torso. And you only have to paint one; we’ll copy paste him to create more in the background.

Actually, that cover IS a classical work of art!I would touch it without protective gloves.I've seen worse. 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! Feels so good!Good Show Sir! (Average: 8.88 out of 10)

    The Inhuman Centipede

    They call them the Kyubanpeet
    The alien kings of the rhumba beat
    When they hold their guns they go chicky chicky boom, chicky chicky boom!

    Those weapons don’t exactly look adapted to the aliens physiology.

  5. Tom Noir Says:

    Man, those hip hands. Talk about an evolutionary dead end.

  6. JuanPaul Says:

    People always mock synchronized invading, but it’s a lot harder than it looks.

  7. JuanPaul Says:

    @Tom Noir I think that might depend on the physiology of the opposite sex.

  8. Anna T. Says:

    Oh no it’s an army of unconvincing cardboard cutouts of identical, badly-designed aliens. I’m so scared.

  9. Tat Wood Says:

    @Anna T.: hide behind the sofa until ‘The Generation Game’ comes on.

  10. Tat Wood Says:

    Viewers of ‘Torchwood’ will know that this is only the second-stupidest fish-headed alien this century. (and the Hath are at no.5)

    And now I’ve got that Bill Mumy song running around in my head.

  11. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    So, they have established logotype for how to properly wash and care for your clothes. I would like to propose new symbols for ‘how many books in the series’. These symbols are printed on the cover, and you the reader can determine at a glance if the set is worth buying. Symbols and meaning are as follows:

    ^_^ : stand-alone novel, novella, short-story collection, etc.

    ¬_¬ : trilogy

    o_O : more than three books in the series

    X_X : original author died before finishing the set

  12. RachelJ Says:

    @Dead Stuff. Shouldn’t o_O have a variant indicating “series currently unfinished”? Or is that a given?

  13. RachelJ Says:

    Just revisting this… look, are we actually sure those *are* weapons the aliens are holding, and not Space Power Tools? Maybe that’s why the human has such a casual grip on the Atomic Hair Dryer.

  14. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    Art direction: ‘Paint me a futuristic insectoid attack helicopter, but with rocket engines instead of blades. You can do what you like with the rest of the cover, I’m off to the sex toys shoppe.’

  15. GSS ex-noob Says:

    Looks like the upper portion of the alien was painted *after* sex shoppe visit.

    You’re never too alien to Vogue!
