    This isn’t the Mothra I remember.

  2. Bibliomancer Says:

    @fred – That’s not Mothra … that’s the Lunesta® Moth from Hell.

  3. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @TW: why are ‘James Rusk’ and ‘Jr’ separate tags?

  4. Tag Wizard Says:

    @DSWBT – Tag science is extremely complex. I would have difficulty explaining it to an average bloke such as yourself who hasn’t gone through extensive, professional training.

    Where’s her shadow?

  6. THX 1138 Says:

    “The Shadow knows… Ah-hahahahahahahahaaaaeurgh eh-hech-heurch-heeeeghhh… Oh, excuse me, I’m out of practice.”

  7. Tag Wizard Says:

    @JuanPaul – The shadow IS the girl’s shadow. It’s a “nonsensical shadow.” Tags answer all questions.

    This is like the poster of some bog-standard horror/thriller about women getting stalked – only lamer, and the woman’s stilettos will in no way be of any use when she tries to run. She’s gonna break her ankles.

    @TW: *sob* OH HOW RIGHT YOU ARE! 😉

    In the hellish period when any successful US sitcom got its Saturday Morning cartoon spin-off, there was a ‘Jeannie’ show with ‘Junior Genie Babu’. In the equally hellish period when any cartoon or graphic novel went ‘dark’ and edgy’ to prove that they weren’t just for arrested adolescents it’s amazing that there wasn’t one with Babu turning to the Dark Side and hunting down his former tutor. This cover would suit a DC Vertigo from c.1996, right down to the Jackie Brown-style Jeannie

    “A DECADE of science fiction, and this is what we to show for it.”

  12. JuanPaul Says:

    The shadow would only land on her like that if she was a 2 dimensional image on the ground. One again, you can trust me, I went to art school.

    And I know, TW, it’s in the tags.

  13. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @JP: it doesn’t say what SPECIES the beautiful women are, does it? Maybe the lass is being used as bait for the butterfly the fellow wants as his (short-lived) slave.

  14. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    From the back cover: “They came with a phenomenal fog: MOTHS. Marking the beautiful women. Causing chaos in the cities. … When official agencies rebuff the truth, only science fiction believers can solve the mystery and save the victims.”

    Looks like I was half right and half wrong.

    Spock has a seven year itch again.

  16. B. Chiclitz Says:

    Lunesta® Mothra is, like, pointing at her scoldingly—”My good woman are you not aware that one of your stockings is showing a shocking slippage, not to mention that arm strap shtick?”

  17. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @BC: nice riff, but needs more alliteration.

  18. B. Chiclitz Says:

    @DeadStuffWBT—isn’t that how moths talk? Especially pretentious, smug ones. That moth looks smug to me.

  19. B. Chiclitz Says:

    Maybe it’s the moth’s shadow on the ground, revealing his true form, still a bit smug too.

  20. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @BC: I was imagining something more along the lines of:

    ‘Say, sister!’ said Synanthedon serica smugly, ‘showing such stocking slippage, supplementing sinister strap shtick, suggests strumpet status!’

    [Between gritted teeth] Must not… make another… Trump wife joke…

  23. A.R.Yngve Says:

    No, it can’t be helped – I’ve got to do it:

    “Donald, lyubyy, please put on your toupée…”

    (I am so ashamed.)
