Good Show Sir Comments: Is it a comic book or a graphic novel? Who knows. Is it a terrible cover? You betcha!

Published 1976

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! Feels so good!Good Show Sir! (Average: 7.00 out of 10)

    And to think we were sceptical when Disney decided to make Bambi 2.

    This must be their ‘Who Mourns For Adonais’ ep, only Kirk wouldn’t be fleeing the giant naked space lady, he’d be docking.

    I suppose in this spacey background context, the gravity-defying boobs (and hair) are actually correct.

  4. JuanPaul Says:

    Now that humanity has gotten rid of nipples via bio-engineering, women are finally free to walk around topless.

  5. Tat Wood Says:

    If the circles down the side are the regular cast, and the girl in colour gets a song about her in the end credits, this could be the live-action, soft-porn ‘Stingray’ that Gerry Anderson never got around to making.

    Unless you count ‘Space: 1999’.

    This is supposed to be the farflung future, and the the one fellow has headphones with a cord.

    In the Star Trek tradition? Star Trek comics tradition? Star Trek porn parody tradition?

    Is “Starfawn” the name of the ship or the space-woman? (It does sound a touch porn-star-ish).

    Admittedly, giant phantom sky-women are part of the pulp SF tradition.–pulp-fiction-science-fiction.jpg

  8. Francis Boyle Says:

    In the Star Trek “tradition” if you want to indicate a character is an alien you give them a prosthetic forehead.

    Our gal here, on the other hand, looks like she’s got enough silicone for an entire race of aliens.

  9. Bruce A Munro Says:

    @Francis Boyle: maybe, if she’s an alien, they’re not actually boobs. (Backup brains or something).

  10. Bibliomancer Says:

    Totally unreadable title.
    Or am I being blinded by the headlights?

  11. B. Chiclitz Says:

    It’s like those TV shows where the ensemble cast all possess special talents or powers. Reading clockwise we have:

    “The Out-of-Date DJ”
    “The Crack-Ho”
    “Charlie Bronson’s Twin”
    “The Mom from Psycho
    “Mickey the Ordinary Street Thug”

    Can’t really call it a book, no wonder they are so big. And be careful how you treat Starfawn, she’s trademaked.

  13. Bruce A Munro Says:

    @B. Chiclitz: aside from Granny Goodness (who looks to me as if she could easily take Norman Bates, two falls out of three), it looks most like “1970s people! In! Space!” Like they found a spaceship parked behind the Disco and accidentally took off to the stars.

  14. GSS ex-noob Says:

    Dear blurb: wut?

    It appears to be some unholy hybrid of graphic novel and regular novel:

    It also appears to be as dire as we suspect.

    I think the title’s missing a comma: the giant nipple-free woman is named Star, Fawn. “Fawn Star, Gazongas of the Galaxy”.

    @Tat Wood: I’m sure he had plans for it after the split with Sylvia.

    @Bruce: GSS.
