Charles Comments: This title bothers me. If they are “Legends from the End of Time” then they would have no descendants and so nobody to remember them as legends. Also did he use a live model to paint those boobs? I’ll bet she felt ridiculous after she saw the results.

Published 1977

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: 6.71 out of 10)

    The eyes that say, “I hate Twister”.

    Those shoes look legendary.

    Fun fact: those helmets aren’t to provide oxygen and atmospheric pressure in the vast vacuum of space. They’re to protect the astronauts from the deleterious effects of too much whimsy, which might otherwise compromise the mission.

    Don’t you hate those Renaissance Faire skits where they try to get the audience to get on stage and participate?

    Oddly reminiscent of Willie Rushton’s drawings. I half-expect the Geranium of Flut to wander in.

    (Sorry, I can’t get this to do umlauts.)

    (@Charles: the title makes perfect sense. They’re time-travellers so they can leg it and spread legends in their past, most of which is our future but they spend a lot of time hanging out in the 1890s).

    Guy down right is a jester; the two at top center are a future two person bobsled team.

    Again, the art dept. saw the author’s surname and just said wotthehell.

    The Legend of Helmethead and Lil’ Helmethead is less risque than The Legend of Wondergranny and Her Amazing Giant Wig, but also funnier than The Legend of the Jester with an Iguana for A Hand And Amazingly Hairy Privates. Most people don’t make it all the way through the Legend of the Cyberpunk Fairy Performance Artist, while The Legend of Duckhead and His Giant Gumball strikes fear into the hearts of men, women, and human-animal hybrids.

    @GSSxn—Speaking of the jester down right, another proof that even gryphon-head hands are hard to draw!

  10. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @BC: And does he count as “bird hat” or “bird hairdo” or some such tag?

    There are a lot of green buttocks on this cover.

  11. B. Chiclitz Says:

    I guess the title of that famous book should have been Eggs and Green Hams.

  12. Tor Mented Says:

    In the lower right, it looks like the painting originally contained a triskelion as in the flags of Sicily or the Isle of Man, and the artist decided that it was botched and changed it.

    “Don’t look directly at the cos play sales people Mini Me.”

    Too late, the editor rushed into the printers’ office and shouted breathlessly: “STOP THE PRESS!! There was a misprint! The title was supposed to read BELLENDS From the End of Time…!”

  15. GSS ex-noob Says:


    Printer: “We can’t bloody well put BELLENDS and MOORCOCK on the same cover! Especially with this artwork!”
