    I didn’t know Ray was so ripped. Or green faced.

  2. Bruce A Munro Says:

    If that cover illustrates the story I think it does, it’s one of the sexiest portrayals of mass murder that I’ve ever seen.

    You would think Mr Grim would use a McCormick reaper for the big jobs.

    Old men and young women! That Mr Grim sure is one hell of a sexist bastard.

    The finals of the ‘Weirdest Stubble’ contest got ugly

    How about a nice, hot bowl of teat wheat?

  7. Tor Mented Says:

    I wonder if teat wheat can be used to make dill doughs.

    It’s like the artist spent so much time on the arms and pecs that he gave up when he got to the abs. Even the trousers are meticulously detailed.

    @Bruce: It apparently illustrates “The Scythe” in which case I agree with you and also consider it a literalization of a metaphor, a spoiler, and a poor excuse to get some boobs on the cover.

    @fred: Must be working day and night during wars.

    @Tor: don’t be silly. It’s for baps.

    @GSSxn: A pun well worth looking up. Touche!

    It wasn’t until 1970 that cover artists were finally – finally! – allowed to put naked boobies on wheat. How long they had waited for that taboo to drop!
