Juan Paul Comments: “Now, fish boy, what were you saying about our fashion sense?”

Published 1986

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: 7.61 out of 10)

    “I guess they really meant it when they said they’d rather die than hear another harp solo.”

    “Gudrun Blackhair”??

    Like… Having black hair isn’t such an uncommon trait that you’d be likely to name yourself after it.

    There’s a reason I’m Tom Noir and not Tom Brownishhair.

  4. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    The harpist has that ‘I’m about to make a “smells-like-fish” joke!’ look on his face.

  5. Ikari Gendo Says:

    Her look suggests his harping stinks as badly as those fish.

  6. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    Her hand looks disproportionately small…and what’s she pointing at?

    ‘I’ve slain five of them myself…’

    ‘Three, Gudrun Blackhair!’

    ‘Three. I’ve slain three of them myself, and our shipmates…’

    This is why you don’t piss off Enya.

    I, for one, am thrilled that jeggings have finally been ratified into the dress code on the wild sea.

  9. Anna T. Says:

    Those two went raiding through some theatre’s costume and props department, and then posed for some pictures, didn’t they?

    Only explanation for why she’s obviously wearing jeans. And the complete lack of “historical accuracy” and coordination.

  10. JuanPaul Says:

    Something tells me that harp has a sassy, wise-cracking personality all its own.

  11. Bibliomancer Says:

    Sequel to Bard II: Electric Boogaloo

  12. Yoss Says:

    “Bard II: Electric Boogaloo”

    Which is still superior to Bard IV: Wild Sea You Next Tuesday.

  13. JuanPaul Says:

    Seems like only the even number books were any good. I think we can all agree “Bard V: The Final Red Hair” was the worst.

  14. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @Yoss, JuanPaul: doesn’t rhyme.

    Bard IV: Fish on Floor

    Bard V: Harp Alive

    Bard VI: Gudrun Blackhair Sucks…

  15. A.R.Yngve Says:

    I kinda like the sheer nuttiness of the cover art… it’s the Western fonts that ruin it for me.

  16. JuanPaul Says:

    @A.R. This cover would have attracted me when I was in my early-mid teens. I liked silly fantasy.

  17. B. Chiclitz Says:

    Nobody’s mentioned the book that started it all:

    Bard I: No, He Lost

  18. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    Unless I’m greatly mistaken, they’ve killed either the God of Death or the number Eleven.

  19. A.R.Yngve Says:

    He slayed his audience with a God-awful rendition of “Born To Be Wild”.

  20. Tom Noir Says:

    Gudrun Blackishhair has what appears to be a sword’s hilt at her belt. Yet she’s holding a drawn sword. How many swords does this woman need???

  21. Tat Wood Says:

    If this is from 1986 why isn’t it ‘Bard 3D’?
    And where’s Lou Diamond Philips as Unspecified Ethnic-Minority New Best Friend
