    I’ve heard of being up-staged, but being up-chinned? That’s new.

    Alexei Sayle inspects the damage to his mini -terrarium populated by tiny people. One of them looks up and thinks ‘Who’s that fat bastard?’

  7. JuanPaul Says:

    @tatwood it’s like a surreal episode of The Young Ones. That would be Niel and Mike in the foreground. I wonder what shenanigans Rick and Vyvyan are up to.

    @JuanPaul: as opposed to the sensible ones where they had to spend a night in a haunted house to inherit a fortune or whatever. The Belovski family doesn’t include any deities, though (that was Alan Freeman).

    Mike’s grown a bit, hasn’t he?

    @ARY—GSS! 😉

    If you gaze long enough into the eyeballed abyss, the eyeballed abyss will gaze back at you, and you’ll be naked.

    Someone told these two to stick their neck out, and they took it far too literally.

    @Tat (6): GSS! Exactly who he looks like. Although his flatmates had entire bodies, not just floating eyeballs.

    @ARY: Much improved! GSS. That tagline makes no sense as-is.

    You can pick up the original art just in time for a very special Xmas present:
    Even they don’t know who the Unknown Artist is (and it’s signed!)

  13. A.R.Yngve Says:

    The upper part of the cover image comes from an entirely different cover by a well-known, superior artist…

    Would you call it theft?

    @A.R.Yngve: it might be permitted as parody.
