    Art direction: ‘I can’t spell “anaconda”, but I can spell “bull”, so it has to be a bull that wants some, hon’!’

  2. Tom Hering Says:

    Her bottom-stretching pose … the foggy atmosphere … the bull breathing air at ground level. This is all about a floating air biscuit.

  3. THX 1138 Says:

    I always thought Pilates was a load of bull.

  4. Michael Toland Says:

    She looks like she’s trying to climb aboard the bull, who’s like, “Hell no, lady.”

    The Pampers from Atlantis

  6. Francis Boyle Says:

    So tasteful it should be on black velvet.

  7. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    BM: LOL!

    I like big butts and I cannot lie
    You bullfighters can’t deny

  9. JuanPaul Says:

    If she was wearing red pampers, I would be very concerned for her safety.

    Lady doing yoga in front of a kneeling bull. I have no idea what that’s supposed to mean, or what it has to do with a dancer from Atlantis, particularly as they’re in a forest.

  11. Hammy Says:

    And are those dinosaurs in the upper left of the picture? Didn’t know there were red dinosaurs – purple was tough enough to believe.

    Or are the red and taupe blobs just clouds from the dancer’s terminal flatulence? That might be why the bull’s trying to get his head down into clean air….

    If this is supposed to be bull leaping Frazetta could have done a much better job.

    #TN went there first, but

    I like big bulls and I cannot lie.

    Bull: ‘Wait! What–what the crap? WHAT THE CRAP did she just do?’

    I wonder who was assigned to paint this cover. I assume the rest of their work is unassailable, but this particular one, though a noble enough assay, is quite assertedly an assault on the senses, though one must admit they were assiduous in their assemblage of visual elements; the assurgent smoke in particular. The artist probably could have used some assistance. The assortment of fonts is a bit severe as well. It’s almost as if the author was embarrassed to be associated with the cover, and wished to be assoiled of it as much as he could, only assenting to have his name on the cover at all in order to assure his royalty checks would be forthcoming. I do asseverate that this truly is a cover for the ages.

  16. B. Chiclitz Says:

    @Lillie Awesome—I don’t know about the author being assoiled, but those pampers certainly seem to be a touch assoiled.

    Been away and off the grid. Good to see the Show still be a-roilin’!

  17. JuanPaul Says:

    Atlantis public safety announcement: “…before assisting others. In the event of an aquatic catastrophy, your seat becomes a floatation device.”

  18. Tat Wood Says:

    That’s not Patrick Duffy.

  19. Raoul Says:

    @Lillie Awesome – It’s actually Frank Frazetta. He is kind of famous, even outside of Good Show Sir.

    But even Frank has a bad day.

  20. Hammy Says:

    …and a big apology to Tom Hering @2. He’d already pointed out that the bull was seeking clear air because of, to use his immortal words, “a floating air biscuit.”

    Good Show Sir!
