    What makes this really awkward is that the guy in yellow doesn’t actually know how to juggle.

    Nope, no phallic symbolism going on here. None at all.

    BAEN would have had this cover in a state of earring overload magnificence.

    Time for the aliens to make their move. Go for the juggler.

    You could fit a lot more than a pie in those ears!

    @BC I’ve heard of being pie eyed, but pie eared? Actually that ant eater is looking a little pie eyed.

    The juggler’s facial expression is that of a man who really isn’t looking forward to the job he was hired to do.

    Alien gremlin at right: Our friend in the gray suit has a terrible headache! Do something, human!

    Dude: Dammit P’lurgh, I’m a juggler, not a doctor.

    The other alien appears to have the head of an anteater transplanted onto the dog robot of original Battlestar Galactica.

    What’s the big yellow round thing?

    Shouldn’t this also say “white-clad protagonist”?

    Gremlins in spaaaaaace…..
