Good Show Sir Comments: Every time I look at this cover I imagine her singing “I Lost My Heart to a Starship Trooper

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: 5.86 out of 10)

    Star Sister? I keep thinking of this:

  2. JuanPaul Says:

    “Help! We’re being bombed by the Guild of Erotic Toy Manufacturers!”

  3. fred Says:

    Please tell me she actually punches an incoming missile. While singing show tunes.

  4. fred Says:

    Electra Woman and Dyna Girl theme. Must be the spandex that made me think of this.

  5. Tat Wood Says:

    After ‘Children of the Stars’ and ‘Star Sister’ did she publish a theory of relativity?

  6. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    She wore a turquoise top and purple leggings to work? What is her job, precisely?

  7. JuanPaul Says:

    @DSWBT Juggler at a ren faire, maybe?

  8. THX 1138 Says:

    “Come back, shoes!”

  9. Anna T. Says:

    Background: War and apocalypse.

    Foreground: Eighties music video.

    Okay, then . . .

  10. Tat Wood Says:

    Is she leading an army? If so, which one? The deployment of forces on this cover indicates that she’s become Queen of the Blobby Aliens With Galaxies Inside Their Hats and that the humans in spacesuits are fighting them. The guy on the far right of the picture seems to be indicating to an out-of-shot gunner ‘Get Her!’ and not in a Larry Grayson way.

    Alternatively, she could be obliviously doing aerobics in a war-zone. If so, this may warrant a BEHIND YOU.

  11. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @AnnaT: Maybe this would be the soundtrack? She’s the proper colour and all.

  12. Anti-Sceptic Says:

    I can’t tell if those are missiles raining down, or if they are millions of light sabers being directed into space by her awesome jedi powers.

  13. THX 1138 Says:

    @Anna T: That’s the 80s I remember.

  14. B. Chiclitz Says:

    It would be easier to tell whether she’s doing space aerobics or space warfare if we could see the tip of her left hand, so elegantly covered up by the big letter “R.”

    What’s with the big “R” and “S”? What’s with Renee’s big head? This is a quite an ugly cover.

  15. Ray P Says:

    It’s raining ICBMs hallelujah.

  16. A.R.Yngve Says:

    “What’s with Renee’s big head?”

    Maybe the artist tried to paint a teenager but had an adult for a model. (You know, like grownups who play teens in American movies.)

  17. fred Says:

    Oh. She’s grasping what is probably a mystical amulet o’ deus ex machina.

  18. Ray P Says:

    It looks as if she has paused in the midst of battle to erect and admire an illuminated sign of her name: “I am STAR SISTER!”

  19. Tom Hering Says:

    The sequel to STAR SITTER. “Renee wanted to change the diaper. But not on the way home from school … and not the diaper of a newborn star sucking all of the galaxy’s pureed fruits and vegetables into its gravity well!”

  20. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    This is Aunt Renee in front of the war. This is Aunt Renee at the back of the war. This is Aunt Renee back again at the front of the war, but you can see a bit of the side of the war. And this is Aunt Renee even nearer the side of the war, coming from the back of the war to the front of the war. And this is The Spanish Inquisition blowing up the geodesic dome with ThoughtWorld space dildos.’

  21. B. Chiclitz Says:

    I wish you all would stop posting re: this cover because I have to read the posts, and that makes me look at the cover again, and every time I do, though I didn’t think it could, it gets more off-putting. For instance, is that a gigantic bum sticking out of the purple dome bottom left?

  22. Tat Wood Says:

    That’s no bum…

    It’s obviously fairly chilly there.

  23. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @Tat: so what you’re saying is, this is a bris gone horribly, horribly wrong?

  24. B. Chiclitz Says:

    See, you’re doing it again!!

  25. B. Chiclitz Says:

    And as for just what anatomical part is sticking out there, does it matter? Well, yes actually, I guess it does. Let’s just go with the bum.

  26. A.R.Yngve Says:

    “Turqoise goes with purple! And you can’t stop me from wearing it! HA HAA!!”
