    Bottom left: bald Roy Castle wants no truck with Hypno-Toad.

    Seems that if you stare too long at the toad, a missile comes shooting out of your head.

  5. B. Chiclitz Says:

    Hey, wait a minute . . . every door is a door through space, isn’t it? I just opened a door and by jove it went right through space!

  6. Bibliomancer Says:

    @B.Chiclitz – Far out man!
    You must have licked a lot of frogs to get that insight.

  7. JuanPaul Says:

    The word that comes to mind of when I look at this cover is “random”.

  8. Raoul Says:

    @THX 1138 – Good Show Sir!

    Looks like they added the rocket as an afterthought because the cover didn’t look “science-fiction” enough.

  9. Anna T. Says:

    The model lady doesn’t seem to have any anatomical issues to me – that’s actually a plausible pose, her left leg is hidden by her dress, and she’s crossing her right leg in front of it.

    Although @JuanPaul is right – I don’t see what this random assortment of people has to do with each other.

    In a world of space-age over-the-shoulder drapery, the leather-vested man is king.

  11. David Cowie Says:

    As it stands this cover isn’t too bad, but it would be great if it just had the background without the people hanging around in front.

  12. B. Chiclitz Says:

    Funny no one has mentioned those golden manacles. Must make it hard to don that tasteful wardrobe. Or to un-don it, for that matter.

  13. JuanPaul Says:

    The golden manacle…who wore it better?

  14. fred Says:

    I wonder why the artist even bothered painting the shadow of the chain on her dress.

  15. GSS ex-noob Says:

    This couldn’t be any more random if it tried.
    All hail the HypnoToad.

  16. THX 1138 Says:

    That’s not a manacle, it’s so she doesn’t lose her fob watch.

  17. Tracy Says:

    I think that’s Dr. Evil on the bottom.

  18. DaveM Says:

    @Tracy, more like the Frankie Howerd version of Doctor Evil “Titter ye not, Austin!”

  19. ProfBeetle Says:

    “Brazenly Marcos gazed upon the in-chained queens yellow toad as she pretended not to notice, gazing off into the infinite beyond. In fear of his base impudence her minions began frantically dabbing, dabbing for their very lives.”

  20. Francis Boyle Says:

    I have the weird feeling that Captain Kirk would feel right at home here.

  21. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    Ladies, this is what those high-heeled shoes do to your ankles. Health before fashion!

  22. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @ProfBeetle: please accept this slightly used internet.

  23. HappyBookworm Says:

    @ B. Chiclitz 5 – Brilliant! My door is like that, too. Also, when I step into my apartment, it’s one second later than it was before I took the step. Is my door a door in time as well, in that case?

  24. RachelJ Says:

    One of those aggravating covers. Technically, it depicts stuff from the book but it gets it all wrong.

    Except the chains. 馃槈

  25. A. R. Yngve Says:

    Every TV series will eventually have a “Western” episode – because the sets, props and costumes are cheap – or a sci-fi episode (if the budget allows it)…

    So too with the 70s hit series KOJAK, starring Telly Savalas. Here you can see Telly in the infamous episode “Cop Out of Time” where he is transported into the future of his own precinct – and of course it turns out to be a dream.

  26. Bruce A Munro Says:

    “So, Maria, we meet again – and I see you are now playing for team toad!”

  27. GSS ex-noob Says:

    Leather Vest seems to be staring directly at the Hypno-Toad, and it’s made him so angry! Look at those clenched fists. Doesn’t look like he’s going to do anything, though.

    Meanwhile, Kojak is getting the hell out of there. Who doesn’t love ya baby?
