    Will Wildeblood’s serious drug habit keep him from making peace between the lizard people and the Chicks Made From Butter? The floating eyeballs and their constant unhelpful criticism aren’t making it any easier!

  2. THX 1139 Says:

    Yeah, you’d better make an exit, lizardman! Captain Kirk’s on his way!

    This cover looks more apt for the only attempted landing of the Icarus mission.

  4. Max Bathroom Says:

    So when you have a particularly harsh comedown from whatever you’re taking, it’s called a third landing?

    And the winner of The Most Generic SF Cover of the Seventies Award is. . . well, not this, but only because it was knocked into second place by the inexplicably yellow woman.

    I’m adding lizard frat boy to my list of favorites. He needs to have a beer can in his right claw. ” Dude! what’s up?”

  7. JuanPaul Says:

    @Daard23 I think White Claw would be more appropriate. It’s gonna be a White Claw & heroin summer!

    Too late did Will learn that the Chinese GSS vaccine has a side effect—the complete disappearance of the lower half of one’s body.

    Haunted by the twin spectres of Cuddy inexplicably turning yellow and his latest patient metamorphosing into a lizard, House decides to skip the Vicodin and move to the hard stuff.

    Heroine, heroin and herpetologian.

  11. GSS ex-noob Says:

    Definitely eggs. You can tell by the innards.

    @Bruce: I think it’s the Chicks Made From Cheese. Or Cheez. Maybe cheddar, maybe Velveeta, maybe Whiz. Like those butter-carving contests at state fairs.

    @Daard: Close, but he’s friends with those frogs from Bud, so he’s yelling “WHAAAZZUUUP!” And “the dairy chick is here! So’s the pusher! PAR-TAY!”

    At least we know why his blood is Wilde.

    GSS to THX, Nomad, and Tor.

    David Icke tried drugs, and you know the rest.

  13. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @ARY: GSS!

  14. Emster Says:

    The cover art is kinda interesting, but what’s up with the font? Looks like they had a font contest at the local high school and picked the funky but slightly off-balance lettering of that girl who signs her name with a heart over the “i”.

  15. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @Emster: But when she saw the art it went with, she was all “ew, gross!” and started drawing frowny faces everywhere.

    (I knew that girl too!)
