    Palaeontology: Xtreme!

    At first, I read the blurb as “Humans and aliens on a collusion course”. I gotta take a break from twitter.

    Never let go of your penis pump in space. Bad things will happen.

  4. B. Chiclitz Says:

    And when we say “Star-Studded” we put the emphasis on “stud”!

  5. Yoss Says:

    @3 Francis Boyle

    That’s the face of a man disgusted with the puny vacuum of his regular pump. Luckily he knew where to find all the vacuum he’d ever need.

    I guess this week we’re seeing illogically sexy male spacesuits? So illogically sexy that they loop around to not being sexy at all?

    Also, how’d that plesiosaur skeleton wind up floating in space, d’you think?

  7. Tat Wood Says:

    I don’t think that’s a space-helmet: it could just as easily be one of those plastic cones they put on dogs to stop them biting themselves. He looks the type. Hence the long thick gauntlets. We can’t see his legs so they might be covered in tooth-marks or padded Wellingtons for all we know.

    @ Francis Boyle—(with thanks to Elvis Costello)
    I’ve been on tenterhooks, looking at these awful books
    Dell, Baen and Avon too, what’s a reader gonna do?
    She said, “Tee-hee, that’s a tiny wee-nie”
    Floating out in outer space how you going to save face? You’ll
    Pump it up, cuz you really really need it
    Pump it up, until she can feel it

    Hey Mark Owens, remind us again what “bloody good covers” Jeff Jones paints. At least Frazetta could paint feet.

  10. B. Chiclitz Says:

    @Bibliomancer—I’ll bet Frazetta could also have painted a much better outer-space-ready penis pump, if he had ever wanted to.

  11. THX 1138 Says:

    Beyond the palaeontology, then.

  12. JuanPaul Says:

    What is Harlan Ellison doing hanging out with that bunch of hacks?

  13. Kendall Says:

    Totes different from the previous pair; this one’s a silver fox! Or maybe a lion. Still, the body kinda fades out lower down – what. the. heck. Can NO ONE afford art with a full body?!

  14. Hammy Says:

    I thought Earthmen *were* the strangers….

  15. GSS ex-noob Says:

    What’s with the giant skeleton in spaaace? Did the museum of natural history and tacky spacesuits explode?

    @B’mancer: Frazetta would have done better than this; muscles would have been more life-like and there would have been feet.

    Also, what’s with the guy’s upper lip? Flesh colored mustache, or bad photoshoppery like unto nuSuperman’s CGI’d out ‘stache?

    It’s like they put Rip Taylor’s head atop someone else’s body. With the confetti hiding his feet!

  16. B. Chiclitz Says:

    I just realized he’s doing the Funky Chicken.

    (You may shoot me now.)

  19. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @ARY: But in space, no one can hear you scream.

    I’ll get me space coat.

  20. Bruce A Munro Says:

    Only No-Shirt, No-Pants McGee could whip outer space (with the help of his buddies Bob the Mostly Invisible Dinosaur and So-Mad the Cosmic Penis Pump) in their latest fantastical adventure, “KNEE DEEP IN THE STAR-BOG”

  21. Tor Mented Says:

    If there is no air in space, how can you play air guitar?
    He looks like he should be saying, “Hello, Alpha Centauri, are you ready to rock?”

  22. Bruce A Munro Says:

    @Tor Mented: he’s playing vacuum guitar. Much higher level of difficulty.

  23. Tor Mented Says:

    @Bruce: Is that a nice way of saying he sucks?

  24. THX 1139 Says:

    It’s in our nature to abhor him.

  25. Bruce A Munro Says:

    @Tor Mented: well, his illustration does. He might be a perfectly nice space exhibitionist in person.

    Have you ever had one of those dreams where you go to work without your clothes?…
