Raoul Art Direction: “Her hoo-hah is showing! This cover is going to the printer in one minute. Do something about it!”

Published 1952

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: 3.63 out of 10)

    Green and purple? Who does she think she is, Doctor Doom?

  2. Bibliomancer Says:

    Queen of the Smurfs

    And the Earth-man learned about sex from 30’s paperback pulp fiction covers.

  4. Tat Wood Says:

    If you’re queen, you get to decide who’s ‘rogue’ and who isn’t.

    That said, she’s attacking the artist and everyone else is heading for the giant fountain-pen nib they’ve erected as a statue in the town square. (Considering the eyeline, it could be that she’s unaware he’s upskirting her with his phone even at the moment of his death).

    Reminiscent of the Pete & Dud sketch about the classical works of art with the drifting bits of gauze.

  6. Francis Boyle Says:

    And now I’m seeing phallo-vulvic spaceships everywhere.

  7. Tor Mented Says:

    “Tell me again what you wanted for the tag line. She learned about Earth from a sex man? She sexed about Earth with a learned man?”

  8. Tor Mented Says:

    She’s obviously not naked. I can see the line at the top of her panty hose.

  9. Raoul Says:

    Well isn’t she the Rogue One.

  10. anon Says:

    She had rare, lone, mean, afroman butt-sex!
    Plug Spacer Dame

    I guess nothing about that is particularly PC. Goes with the image, then.
    Also, I don’t speak the language, so I might not have reached the desired language level of “Mad magazine”.

  11. THX 1139 Says:

    And let her name be… Queen Ribena!

  12. JuanPaul Says:

    Arya, once was enough. Put your clothes back on.

  13. B. Chiclitz Says:

    She learned about sex from an Earth-man.

    And judging by her response, I’m guessing the Earth-man was Harvey Weinstein.

  14. GSS ex-noob Says:

    I was going to say “tasteful smoke”, but that seems to be… part of her cape?

    I’m actually liking the purple and green. It’s certainly eye-catching, and when she’s that big, you don’t argue with her.

    The tag line is… mostly true, but the picture has nothing to do with the book, other than that there is a Rogue Queen who fights, and a human spaceship, to which she and the others are proportional, not tiny or giant.

    @Tat: maybe she’s using her spear to point to the “Complete and Unabridged”.

    @Tor: heh. All of the above?

    @anon: Yep, it sorta fits, although that would better fit the (same universe) story that’s currently the top panel on the GSS Twitter. “EU” could be a word, or could stand for European Union.

    @BC: yes indeedy.

  15. Verylatetotheparty Says:

    I get the feeling the rogue queen had her makeup done by a drag queen. I think it’s mostly the eyebrows.

  16. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @VLTTP: and if that’s a bodysuit, as @Tor suspected, the rogue queen might BE a drag queen.

  17. Ray P Says:

    Femen protests Elon Musk’s rocket for its rising phallic supremacism.

  18. Tracy Says:

    Am I the only one who thinks the hoo-ha hider is some alien snake-squid creature rearing its head around?

  19. Tat Wood Says:

    @Ray P.: I don’t think a spear would be their weapon of choice.

  20. Ray P Says:

    @Tat I don’t expect consistency.

  21. A.R.Yngve Says:

    I can’t stay mad at this cover, it’s so endearingly dumb.
