    That giant boob is coming after the guy on the left like the big rolling ball in Raiders.

    I want to know where aerobics lady’s other hand is. Or… do I?

  3. fred Says:

    It’s Romancing The Stone only with much bigger….hair.

    “wait! I need a little more time to study these last two heiroglyphs!”

  5. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    ‘Frieze! Up against the wall!’


  6. A.R.Yngve Says:

    Whoa! Now that is an example of “The Hard Sell”.
    Must’ve sold like gangbusters in the 80s.

    Lousy title logo, though.

  7. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    It’s RIGHT ABOVE YOU! You boneheads, the flame is RIGHT ABOVE YOU! You’re done, you can go home now, you don’t have to put up with this nonsense anymore.

  8. Francis Boyle Says:

    I thought this was just an ordinary terrible, terrible cover until Bibliomancer pointed out Boob Guy. Now I’m convinced it’s a lost frame from a Terry Gilliam animation.

    The pith helmet guy is actually an ornament dangling from her oddly placed belt.

  11. B. Chiclitz Says:

    Speaking of that belt, there is something very strange going on inside the tunic just below it. I don’t even want to look too deeply in there.

  12. Anna T. Says:


    . . . but seriously, I didn’t choose this outfit. Especially not the chain-belt-thingy.

  13. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    The Hero’s perm is a different colour than his sideburn.

  14. JuanPaul Says:

    No wonder safari guy can’t go any further, he’s been carrying that legless giant woman on his back.

  15. Ray P Says:

    A total eclipse of good taste.

  16. fred Says:

    An H. Rider Haggard ‘She’ inspired book. The guy in the pith helmet is quite possibly Rudyard Kipling.

  17. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    Raiders of the Lost Motorboat.

  18. THX 1138 Says:

    @16: I don’t care how ruddy hard he’s kippled, it shouldn’t be on a book cover.

  19. JuanPaul Says:

    Working title: ‘The hands that reach, but never grasp’

  20. JuanPaul Says:

    I just noticed that she has hair ting. Lots of hair ting. Now why didn’t I notice that before?

  21. THX 1138 Says:

    The author should have gone for the full Ricardo Monaco, I feel.

  22. GSS ex-noob Says:

    This is peak ’80s. Aerobics wear, the mullette, the pre-Photoshop terrible airbrushing. And yet, if you’d told me this was a self-published book from this year, I’d have believed it.

    Many men would be happy to die crushed by giant boobs. Pith Helmet Guy isn’t one of them — “No, save me, help!” And both Maxi-Skirt Woman and Probably the Hero look like toys, with plastic molded clothing.

    The whole thing looks like a pubescent kid grabbed a picture of a haircare model from his older sister’s “Seventeen Magazine” and pasted it into a scene he set up with his action figures.

    Which still doesn’t explain why Giant Aerobics Bimbo appears to be wearing a skin-color thong above her navel. Or why her eyes are uneven. And her fingers appear to be unnaturally long and arthritic.

    @DSWBT: Yes, if Maxi-Skirt Woman sat on Hero’s shoulders, she could reach the flame easily. End of journey!

    @Juan Paul: I’m not sure her hair is exactly Ting! but it is Glow.

  23. Bruce A Munro Says:

    That picture of the Flame is actually the Protagonist’s thought-cloud, like someone in a cartoon imagining the hamburger he’s going to eat. His imagination being no better than the cover artist’s, it looks a lot cheaper than the real thing.

  24. GSS ex-noob Says:

    Does that mean the picture of Giant Aerobics Bimbo is the thought-cloud of Pith Helmet Guy? It’d explain her anatomy and clothing (good and bad).

  25. Tor Mented Says:

    The man on the left has a lot on his mind.
