We’ve got submitted Spock covers coming out our pointy ears so it’s a good time to toss them all together into a Mr. Spock Megapost! Credit where credit is due but there are some unknown artists and publishers in this mix.

Good Show Sir Comments:

1. Yes we are both threatened by the giant ants. Why do you persist in yelling Me Too?

2. I wish to be now known as Father Spock.

3. “Airing … grievances … lot of problems … you people … gonna hear it …”

4. Next time let’s not get our publicity shots posing in the Sears Portrait Studio.

5. Sorry. I don’t know what happened. I’ve never lost my Vulcan Death Grip before.

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: 6.00 out of 10)

    1: I knew we shouldn’t have pissed off Bert I. Gordon!

    2: Wait till you feel his Masonic handshake.

    3: “This pizza is cold! What kind of a joint is this?!”

    4: Is Contact a dating website?

    5: “Unfortunately, now I must fight you.”

    2) Spock keeps having body parts stolen. First his brain, now his whole head.

  3. Tat Wood Says:

    1. This reminds me of an incident in my childhood, albeit better-drawn than the Animated Series.

    2. They’ve stolen my Vulcan Lyre. And my shirt. Fascinating.

    3. At least this is more dignified than Tom Baker in a similar situation on the planet Chloris

    4. 44-18-52 HUT!

    5.Neither Sarek nor Amanda agreed to having their profiles used on promotional material for the inter-species dating app.

  4. JuanPaul Says:

    1. Vulcants!

    2. Not to be confused with ‘Dune: Messiah’. Or maybe it is to be confused.

    3. Mom is going to be confused when she finds this under junior’s bed instead of porn

    4. Captain, your toupee has been aligned. Now go get that sexy green alien!

    5. Vulcans can’t resist a sensual knee massage.

  5. Ray P Says:

    1. Spock actually would have been cool in Phase IV. Mind-meld the ants.
    2. Spock beats a giant space baby.
    3. Spock inadvertently starts seventies pet rock craze. Roddenberry wanted royalties.
    4. Was Nimoy taking lessons from Joe Biden? Or vice versa?
    5. Does David Beckham know about Spock and Victoria?

  6. Bruce A Munro Says:

    1. Why there are no picnics on Vulcan.
    2. It started out as an advice blog and sort of mushroomed from there.
    3. Dialogue not improved by conversion to speech-bubble format.
    4. Spock and Kirk had been taken prisoner by nigh-omnipotent aliens before, but this was the first time where the alien was an amateur photographer.
    5. Vulcan is in most aspects an advanced planet, but their bed technology remains firmly 1890s.

  7. B. Chiclitz Says:

    1. ”Fascinating. The ants seem to be enraged by a certain shade of blue. I had better remove my shirt, and you had better remove your . . . ”
    “Nice try Big Ears!”

    2. “I am Spock, destroyer of fashion worlds.”

    3. Only trouble with those 300 full-color authentic scenes is you can’t see them in the dark.

    4. “Spock, I can’t find the Enterprise anywhere. We’re stranded!”
    “Unfortunately, I cannot locate the ship either, Captain.”

    5. “For an Earth woman, you have a firm biceps.”
    “That’s not my biceps Big Ears!”

  8. THX 1139 Says:

    The first cover is pretty great compared to the others, I must say.

  9. THX 1139 Says:

    Were the covers for I Am Not Spock and I Am Spock any better? And was there a third volume called Make Up Your Bloody Mind?

  10. A.R.Yngve Says:

    “300 FULL-COLOR AUTHENTIC SCENES” would not work as a selling argument today. The Twitter crowds would cry “fake scenes” in a minute.

  11. GSS ex-noob Says:

    So we’re counting fanzine covers now?

    This opens up humongous vistas of badness. That way lies madness of a kind Lovecraft could never imagine.

    1. That’s actually a good piece of artwork. It’s the lettering that ruins it.

    @Tag: this whole thing deserves “font problems”.

    2. The thing on his head is extremely daft. The US cover was less pointy, more blobby. The book deserves this cover, though. Legendarily bad.

    3. I just saw this episode again a few days ago. On a modern TV, the thing looks even more like a pizza. It all looks better than your average “Doctor Who” episode of the same (or much later) era.

    5. Wait. Whose leg and hand are those on the left?! Is it a Spock harem?

    @THX re #1 — an excellent deep cut!

    @Tat Wood re #3 may be correct and that’s not Spock but Sarek and Amanda. Or it might be Spock and the chick from the ice age planet in the past, after they escaped to a nice B&B.

  12. Tat Wood Says:

    @GSS exNoob: Pshaw! ‘Devil in the Dark’ was shown between the end of ‘The Moonbase’ and the start of ‘The Macra Terror’. I’d take Cybermen or Macra over a semi-deflated kid’s paddling-pool any day.

  13. Francis Boyle Says:

    Well considering my mother had a fair collection of the Trek photonovels I don’t think she would have been be confused. She was of the generation that invented slash fiction though I suspect, in her fantasies Kirk, was very much in the background.

  14. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @Frances: I like your mum, although slashfic wasn’t my thing. Big Spock fan, was she?

    @Tat: The Trek sets didn’t wobble so much. And the show was in Full Color, NBC peacock and all. As for deflated plastic, I counter with the people-eating furniture.

  15. Bruce A Munro Says:

    I’ll give you the Cybermen, but I’d say between Janos Prohaska (a professional acrobat and stuntman) playing an aggressive hairy pizza and extras pretending to be dragged offstage by giant cardboard claws, it’s an even match at worst. At least the Horta, a silicon-based life form which can acid-etch it’s way through solid rock as fast as a man can jog, is _conceptually_ a bit cooler than giant mind-control crabs. I bet the Macra couldn’t stand up to even a type one phaser.

  16. GSS ex-noob Says:

    In aggregate, though, looking at the entire run of episodes from 1966-1969, you gotta admit our man here and crew had a better-looking run.
