Raoul Comments: He’s done turning the other cheek.

Published 1980

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: 7.57 out of 10)

    Looks like the Raelians are muscling in on the Scientologists’ act.

  2. Francis Boyle Says:

    Or as he said: “I came here to turn the other cheek and kick ass and I’m all outa cheeks.”

    Just before he saves the day, Kirk sees the solution to this dilemma and cheekily remarks ‘No crotch pads.’.

    Art Director: Get me the guy that illustrated Planet of the Apes! I love that stuff! What do you mean, “that’s all he can do?”

  5. Tor Mented Says:

    He’s looking a bit cross.

  6. Bibliomancer Says:

    @Tor – You nailed it!

  7. JuanPaul Says:

    The cloud next to Jesus’ head is turning it’s cheeks.

  8. Tat Wood Says:

    @Francis: Smile when you say that.

    Walking on water? This blond version struts on clouds. While wearing sandals. (Presumably).

  9. B. Chiclitz Says:

    @Tor M, @B’Mancer—Now now, don’t be rood.

  10. Tat Wood Says:

    Sequel to Halo Jones?

  11. Bruce A Munro Says:

    So if they’re walking on clouds, does that makes this dystopic future heaven? (The mind boggles, or something.)

    @Hover text writer: that would be the 12 disciples, no? I bet that’s Judas with the gun.

  12. daard23 Says:

    I’m not sure about this gritty sci fi reboot of the New Testament. I think Jesus may need a comedic sidekick to even things out a bit.

  13. Tag Wizard Says:

    @Bruce – 1 posse with gun > 12 disciples

  14. Raoul Says:

    He’s trying to look cool, but if he’s wearing a jumpsuit that belt isn’t holding anything up except his thumbs.

  15. Tor Mented Says:

    @ B’mancer, B. Chiclitz, et al.
    We’re going to hell.
    (Worth it, though.)

  16. Tor Mented Says:

    @daard23: GSS.

  17. B. Chiclitz Says:

    @Tor—As Kit Marlowe sez: This is hell, nor are we out of it. 😉

  18. Tat Wood Says:

    If that’s Christ, then this must be the Anti-Christ

  19. Bruce A Munro Says:

    @Tat Wood #8: sandals and a jump suit? Not a good look. Hopefully he isn’t wearing socks as well.

    (Speaking of not-good looks, too much blondness. Gives things a sort of Aryan Jesus vibe.)

  20. GSS ex-noob Says:

    I have got to stop showing up so late with nothing to do but award everyone a hearty GSS!

    Extra points to @Francis for the perfect dialogue.
    Double extra points to @daard23 for improving the art.

    Ooh, there’s another cover. He’s got a big automatic weapon and an even bigger red classic American convertible.

    Here’s a review en Francais:

  21. A. R. Yngve Says:

    “Seeing the crowds, Kid Jesus went up on the mountain, and when he sat down his disciples came to him. And he opened his mouth and taught them, saying: Blessed are the mutants, for theirs is the post-apocalyptic wasteland…”
