    Did Daenarys team up with the Bolsheviks? Breaker of chains for sure.

    Not just dragons, but hairy dragons. Which kinda precludes the whole fire breathing thing.

    Even faux-abstract expressionist/cubist hands are hard to draw!

    Either she’s riding side-saddle or she is inside a dragon themed bumper car. Can’t quite figure out the perspective. And Dick Tracy seems to be riding his cat.

    “Pull over, ma’am. Do you have any idea how fast you were going?”

    I think Fedora in the background is admiring the appearance of blonde dragon lady in the front. Since he’s not as badass as her, he doesn’t get to ride an actual dragon (I assume}.

    I don’t think that’s as much hair on the dragon as it is speed lines to indicate it’s supposed to be moving fast.

    Are they coming out of a space warp, or falling into a black hole? (There’s stars in the background) Distortion abounds, more than you’d expect even from faux Expressionist-Cubist-Bolshevik art. Maybe it’s just a really, really strong giant fan at the amusement park.

    OTOH, as the warp seems to mostly affect Fedora the Cat Rider, maybe the dragon’s moving so fast that it’s warping space-time.

    This is the sort of thing that gives feminism a bad name.

    There are quicker ways to get to the Ugly Pet competition, but not many.

    “Adios”, chirps Rei / Rash is periodic / Opera hid crisis

  12. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @anon: The woman definitely looks to be chirping Adios. That would make the guy in the back Derri, riding his rat.

    “Doris, darling, we’ve had the editorial committee going through your script and we loved it…however, this was the only cover we could all agree on. We just wanted to make sure people know it is a children’s book.”
