Penelope Comments: Something is really irritating him. Maybe his thong?

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: 8.00 out of 10)

    Look at the power that shirt (puffy) has, it can cause that chunk of glass he is holding to glow the same color blue. I hope it’s fireproof.

    Let me get this right. Part Byronic hero, part barbarian hero, bad case of jaundice.

  5. B. Chiclitz Says:

    And where exactly are the children?

  7. B. Chiclitz Says:

    Her dress is designed to be very practical, with an umbrella sewn to the left sleeve for those sudden downpours Hastur is noted for.

  8. A.R.Yngve Says:

    [Sulks and pouts because he wanted to do the obvious Grace Jones joke but THX 1139 got there first]

    GSS, @JuanPaul

    Looking at the larger version of the picture, it looks like either he’s holding the glowy gem next to her groin, or he’s grabbed a glowy gem _attached_ to the groin of her dress, which may explain why her expression of distress is directed towards him rather than the giant fiery woman in the background. Is it one of those Family Jewels I have heard of?

  11. B. Chiclitz Says:

    @BruceAMā€”Given the placement of his hand, I figured he was comparing his jewel to hers. The fact that he seems unable to decide which he likes best is probably highly significant.

  12. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @BC, THX (5, 6): I don’t think there are going to be any children with him in that thong. Even more so if #11 is hinting at what I think.

    @Bruce: She certainly is more upset about him, who’d seem the lesser threat.

    Grace Jones wouldn’t be caught dead on this cover. She’s never been that zaftig, either. Perhaps whoever or whatever that is, is a big fan?

  13. A.R.Yngve Says:

    El Greco called and he wants his half of that cover back!

  14. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @ARY: I doubt he really wants it back. Probably just wants it painted over/destroyed.
