Good Show Sir Art Direction: “Listen moron, I said you can make Cash from Outer Space. Now fix the cover title.”

Thanks to Ryan for sending this in.

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: 7.50 out of 10)

    The secret to civilization is a VHS tape of ‘A Man Called Horse’?

    Peter Weller…..not how I imagine ‘Buckaroo Banzai Against The World Crime League’.

    As the shadowy figures on the right edge (under the smug “1st pub $10.00” sticker) demonstrate, the real secret of civilization is . . . the Tango!

    Was Elisabeth Warren’s brother at the Roswell crash?

    Disney’s ill-advised disco-era follow-up to ‘That Darned Cache’

    I can’t tell if all the little people in the lower left are Amazons.

    It’s like Rat Race, only with pirates, gladiators, and amazons.

    “Want to know how I got these scars? Well, I used to be a pirate, but one day I picked up the wrong mouth-dagger for swinging over to another ship. You always want to use a dagger that’s only sharp on one side, you see…”

    That’s an Amazon on the horse-thing leading the tiny troops down left, but no way of knowing their gender, or how/if they’re related to the tango-ers up right.

    Am glad “anon” has returned with their delightful anagrams.

    @JP, fred: GSS! Perfection.

    I may be just a floating head. But I’ll take on your whole army!

    When the SF cover artist can’t figure out one theme or scene to focus on, there are two common “quick fixes”:

    A) The “throw everything at the wall and see what sticks” layout shown here;

    B) Vague, generic “spaceship + planet” image that has nothing to do with the content.
