Actually, that cover IS a classical work of art!I would touch it without protective gloves.I've seen worse. Far, far, worse.Interesting, but I would still read it in public.Middlng: Neither awful nor awfully goodWould not like to be seen reading that!Awful... just awful...That belongs in a gold-lame picture frame!Gah... my eyes are burning!

    What’s Marilyn Manson doing on a cover from 1964?

    We can’t stop here – this is bat country.

    Seeing Jesus and the last three vampires leaving Earth, Brainiac was worried he missed taking the last rocket out.

    If the title’s true, this is a book with a limited readership.

    (@JuanPaul: I suspect that Elon Musk has a slightly larger and more dedicated tech support division.)

    [Watches a rocket pursue Jesus and three alien space bats as they flee Earth.]
