Good Show Sir Comments:

1. The worst thing about being a politician is having to shake the voters’ hands.

2. Hook Paper Dolls: Cut along dotted line

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!

    Consider my mind spun and my stars spanned. Also my spon spent.

  4. JuanPaul Says:

    Is Hook pronounced similar to cook, or is it more like mook?

  5. Tat Wood Says:

    1. A forgotten 70s rock star’s adoring fans all try to tell him his wig’s on sideways

    2. Just when I’d managed to forget about Gil Gerard ‘getting down’

    (@JuanPaul: The latter if it’s his wife playing Mrs Merton.)

    1. Vulcan or Romulan?

    2. Far left background guy is either talking into a communications device or doing his best John Wick impression. Lots of left handed people in the future as well.

  7. A.R.Yngve Says:

    1. Hook reconsidered his vegan lifestyle when he met the Broccoli People.

    2. The outdoor bonfire and barbecue was going fine… when suddenly his hosts began sharpening their meat cleavers. Hook wondered whether the ritual garb with the dotted lines might have an ominous purpose…

    The Boosted Man

  9. Raoul Says:

    I’m guessing the “once you see it” tag is for Lady Hook’s surprise package.

  10. Ryan Says:

    @Fred: The guy on the far left is actually trying to read the directions on his bottle of prescription medicine.

  11. B. Chiclitz Says:

    1. Nothing screams “The Future!” like neon-tube lettering.

    2. No, we don’t actually fire these guns, we just pose with therm. Pretty future-looking, huh? We call this dance “The Froze.”

  12. JuanPaul Says:

    The guy in cover 2 doesn’t look all that boosted to me. The woman in the blue suit may want to grab one of those blasters, because that’s the only excitement she is going to get out of this science fiction adventure.

  13. GSS ex-noob Says:

    Any relation to Sos the Rope and pals? Rope, hook…

    #1: The novel coronavirus got even more novel. And cruciferous.

    #2: Nobody cares about the fire in what’s apparently a sealed dome?

    @Tat: #2 — that was my first thought too, but this is even before that!

    @Raoul: Hers does look bigger than his. Maybe she’s the boosted one.

    A review of the series:

    @Ryan: Exactly what it looks like.

    @Fred: I think I know why there are so many left-handers. The artist posed in front of a mirror.
