Dexter Comments: “LEEROY JENKINS!!!”

Published 1983

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! Feels so good!Good Show Sir! (Average: 7.19 out of 10)

    Why pick on C3-PO when Shelob is RIGHT THERE?!

    Her usual boob-distract-attack won’t work against this trio.

  3. Longtime_Lurker Says:

    Isn’t the spider spinning a web from the wrong end? And what is that thing the robot is swinging? Looks more like a fishing rod than a weapon.

  4. Longtime_Lurker Says:

    And who exactly is fighting against whom? I read this scene as the woman and the robot together against the spider with Floating Head looking on.

    Let the master show you how it’s done.

    Longtime_Lurker – i’m pretty sure that’s a flute the Robot is playing,it also explains the disco squares and DJ podium .I tried to read it – but got lost half way through .

    I like the strategically-placed gears on the robot’s knees, elbows and ankles, allowing his joints some movement. Unfortunately, his wrists seem frozen solid. This may be why he’s having a hard time wielding that fishing rod, and also why he seems to be punching himself in the face.

    This one’s a job for the Toxic Cover Containment Squad. Not even WTF bad. Just bad in every possible way.

  9. B. Chiclitz Says:

    @Francis B—Even the spider looks bored, or maybe it’s just that he’s resigned himself to his awful fate, forever gracing this cover.

    As oversize spiders go, that guy is rather non-threatening. Maybe he’s one of the good guys?

  11. JuanPaul Says:

    The world of mazes seems like an exciting place. Not sure why they are so eager to escape.

    Come to Vardeman’s World of Mazes, new branch opening on Cenotaph Road, for all your labyrinthine needs.Hedge-trimmers, booby traps, giant rolling balls of rock and a special on pre-loved robots this week only..

    That droid just wanted to go fishing and here it is in the World of Mazes. There’s a barely-clad bimbo screaming and waving a sword around, and a giant levitating glowy spider. All on a disco floor presided over by DJ Dripping Head. Poor droid.

  14. Anna T. Says:

    If the robot can get his wrists unfrozen in time, he’ll have a golden opportunity to kill the swordswoman since she’s unwisely worn armour that leaves her chest exposed, meaning getting her in the heart should be fairly straightforward.

  15. GSS ex-noob Says:

    I’m not sure the robot’s footing is secure enough to swing for that big target, but if he can get a better stance and unlock his left hand from the fishing pole, he’ll be able to swing it pretty well with one hand.

    I hear the Spectrum ZX game (using the same cover!) sold better than the book version.

  17. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @ARY: The Commodore 64 version definitely did. Same cover, but the graphics were better than the ZX game.
