    That is a funny way to spell Tracy Hickman.

    Gardener’s Question Time: Behind the Scenes.

  3. Tat Wood Says:

    If that’s a platypus, presumably it’s the Michael Bay version of ‘Phineas and Ferb’ where The Rock was cast as Rodney.
    (And just in case)

    The initial artwork for Public Enemy’s Fear of a Black Planet? Rejected.

    I’m seeing a bald cyborg with a Nerf gun, an arts-and-crafts lady with her hot glue gun and… Paddington Bear?

  6. B. Chiclitz Says:

    Noting the guy with the gun descending the ladder, Platypus Paddington Bear attempts to utter a whispered, half-choked, “Behind You” to his companions, who are busy earnestly looking in exactly the wrong direction.

    Nothing says “The Future” like a WWII vintage flashlight.

    He’s got an earring. I think a frickin’ metal arm and who knows what else would be all the body ornamentation one could possibly need.

    “I’m much better at drawing trench coats than aliens”

    That mechanical arm looks like it could be disabled by any six year old with a pair of scissors.

    That tense scene in Alien when Ripley has to decide whether to shot the alien or the psycho cyborg.

    The woman might be Ripley. She might be from the original “V” series and about to unhinge her jaw to eat whatever that is in the trenchcoat.

    Whoever she is, I hope either she or the shadowy background figure shoots the smirking overcompensating cyborg dudebro.

    Unless that’s actually Margaret Weis with Don Perrin, plus their Platypus Bear “And”.

    @Tat: Could also be the plummeting monotreme from “The Platypus of Doom” (last seen splatting on Sarnath).

    @BC (6,7): GSS! Me dear old da had one of those in working order well into the late 70’s.

    @JP: GSS.

  13. Tat Wood Says:

    @GSS ex-noob: that would be the arch-nemesis of the Doof that Came to Sarnath, wouldn’t it?

  14. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @Tat: The Food that came to Sarnath?

    Margaret, And, Don: pictured and credited L to R.

    I’m not ruling out that that might be Howard the Duck in the trenchcoat either. This is certainly a world he never made.
