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!

    Can YOU find the hidden word in the logo? Read the letters vertically, diagonally or backwards. The winner gets the glory.

    “Oops, sorry – these things are so difficult to use!”

    That’s an unimpressive depiction of someone powering up to Super Saiyan God.

    Show up late and you get stuck with the self immolation suit.

    @A.R. Yngve – Tufa Trot Roy…Hrrr…Thor. Heyo!

    Blaster? Yeah, well I got your blaster right here, pal.

  7. Tor Mented Says:

    But those suits are metallic, not furry.
    Oh, wait …

  8. Tor Mented Says:

    It looks like the person on the left is playing bagpipes … of the future!
    Which might explain the fury.

    Hand-held rocket-launchers and an angry man on fire inside a bonfire: it’s Guy Fawkes Night INNN SPA-A-A-CE.

    Leave us alone while our friend dances before the volcano god!

    I’m sure when the artist made the huge super-weapon detonation in the background he hunched over the drawing, scribbled really frantically, and made lots of explodey-explosion sounds.

    But hey, it’s a commission.

  12. Francis Boyle Says:

    I like that the cover quickly dispelled my initial misapprehension that the book was a taut psychological study of two people trapped in a loveless marriage.

  13. Bibliomancer Says:

    That’s OK. Old flaming seven-fingers wasn’t going to fit into those space suits with the claw-gloves anyway.

  14. Raoul Says:

    There is only one Fury from Earth. Sgt Nick Fury. And his Howling Commando, third in line.

  15. Bruce A Munro Says:

    “Hey, guys, everything’s on fire back here….guuyys!”

    “Quiet, Bob. Don’t interrupt our manly posing.”

  16. B. Chiclitz Says:

    At first I thought the low-ceilinged cover had snapped Sgt. Furry’s helmet antenna in half, but now I see it’s just another one of those shooting stars landing on the unlucky guy in third place.

  17. B. Chiclitz Says:

    @ARY—Hey Moth?

  18. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @ARY: Tufa. It’s actually a volcanic explosion in the background. The Earth is furious!
