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!

    Finally, Blanka from Street Fighter II gets his own book!

  2. A.R.Yngve Says:

    That blurb just screams out for the filthiest pun of all time… but I should not.

  3. Bruce A Munro Says:

    @A.R. Yngve: If that’s the Evil One, I think you’ve said all that needs to be said about his appearance.

    Put something on, lady. You’re literally going to freeze your ass off.

    The mention of Lumley’s earlier books [1] and the talk of “The Rim of the Void” promises Lovecrafteana, but that Vallejo – a pretty standard “naked woman displays self to Satan” – smacks more of Robert E Vardeman.

    [1] Dereleth: people say my Lovecraft-inspired work rather misses the point and spirit of the originals.

    Lumley: hold my beer.

    “Klytus, I’m Borea.”

  5. Francis Boyle Says:

    That’s the ‘Evil One’ – were all the ‘Goofy One’ positions taken?


  6. fred Says:

    Original for sale the next 3 days, and it gives a much clearer view of the moon,

  7. Ray P Says:

    It was a rimjob only the slut queen could handle

  8. Tat Wood Says:

    @Fred: It looks like Dougal.
    (Or, for US readers, Bingo from ‘The Banana Splits’)

  9. Bibliomancer Says:

    “In the Moons Borea”? That doesn’t make any sense. It’s “In the Moons OF Borea”. No time to redo the cover. Hand me that Sharpie.

  10. Tweet Jane Says:

    Carrot Top is not amused

  11. B. Chiclitz Says:

    At the rim of the void


  12. THX 1139 Says:

    Better than the void of the rim?

  13. NomadUK Says:

    More like ‘Mooning Borea’, amiright?

  14. JuanPaul Says:

    I’m pretty sure there is an extra finger on his right hand.

  15. Ryan Says:

    @JuanPaul – I thought so, too.

    Then I looked at the link Fred provided, and the original seems to have the more customary number of digits, so perhaps we are to read some deep symbolism into Carrot Top’s extra finger.

  16. Raoul Says:

    @Bibliomancer – Are you sure another typo isn’t “In the Mons of Borea”?

  17. GSS ex-noob Says:

    There’s a LOT of hair going on here (in addition to the obvious nekkidity). He looks like a Troll doll.

    And once again, feet are so hard to draw that the Sir Mix-approved damsel is basically growing from/sinking into the rock instead of standing on it. Or, going by her hair, it might be a Van de Graaf generator.

    @Bruce: That is a good comment all around, from the obvious to the amusing footnote.

    @JuanPaul: I agree. Someone from UAI altered his hand from the original, obviously.

    @Ray P, @BC: Yeah. I’m pretty sure that term was invented before 1979, but maybe most people didn’t know it? Or the cover blurb writer didn’t? Would have been nothing wrong with “on the edge of the void”.

    @Tweet Jane: My eyes were scarred once when my teevee suddenly and without warning showed me that Carrot Top is even buffer than this. There isn’t enough brain bleach to get that out, so I’m telling you this in retaliation for answer to your comment and tweet.

    Am now going back to the more innocent days of “The Banana Splits” as @Tat Wood mentioned. Tra la la…
