    #1 Dude, if it’s that small, don’t name it.

    #2 everyone stop stairing at me!!!

    (Actually, I like cover #1)

  2. THX 1138 Says:

    #1 “…and after what he did to the stained glass window, he was banned from Midnight Mass…”

    #2 Isn’t this the cover to Hairway to Steven?

    #1: Here we see the results from an artist who only attended the “How to Draw Hands and Feet” class at the Unknown Artist’s Institute.

    #2: “Haunting Tales of Horror”? Well, yes, that is one horrible-looking baby.

    1) With apologies to Black Oak Arkansas and Don Kirshner’s Rock Concert – ‘Rock Candy to the rescue!’.

    2) When Porgs go bad.

  5. B. Chiclitz Says:

    PS to # 2: Not only is that baby ugly, he’s Smirky as well.

  6. Tor Mented Says:

    #2. The baby must be a step child.

  7. Francis Boyle Says:

    The blue stuff is the genuine Heisenberg product. The other colours are cheap imitations. Not that matters. Whatever colour you choose, you’ll still end up looking like Mr Cover Guy. Oddly enough, in 1970, this was a selling point.

  8. Tat Wood Says:

    Unknown Artist for #1 is Richard Clifton-Dey. #2 looks like a collage of the kind we made when the proper art teacher was off sick.

  9. Tor Mented Says:

    #2. Ladies and gentlemen — Step an’ Wolf!

  10. THX 1138 Says:

    IIRC, the baby is a murderer!

    I’m loving that “blob of awesomeness” is a tag.

    1. What’s up with his shoulder? Guess it doesn’t matter since the shattered stained glass windows are about to come at him. What’s with the inflatable chain over his, er, small assassin? I probably don’t want to know.

    2. Baby’s climbing the stairway to Yoda. Or Yoda’s furrier cousin.
    Did baby already assassinate someone and bury them over on the right, leaving one hand sticking out? Scary sandcastle.

    @BC: Baby is definitely Smirky McSmug.

    @Tor (6,12): hee hee!

  12. Anna T. Says:

    1. Person having vaguely orgasmic experience while being assaulted by colourful crystals. The glowing orb probably has something to do with it.

    2. Sadly, the “furry Yoda” crack has already been made, by @GSS ex-noob. In answer to their question, it’s probably Yoda’s evil, furry cousin and/or doppelganger.

  13. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @Anna: The Yoda joke is in the post itself. However, we could postulate it was Yoda’s cousin who went all Dark Side and became furry as a side effect of eeeevil. Then he began teaching babies how to become assassins, which is pretty darn eeevil.

    As regards #1, the glowing orb is probably some futuristic “marital aid”. With crystal power.
