    Doctor Strange had to start somewhere… with the magic of Rubik’s Cube!

    Please, someone tell him the charcoal blocks go under the barbeque plate. I mean, the foam machine’s great an’ all, but this is going to be one bummer of a party.

    She’s a pretty young thing, I am not sure why she decided to grow that black moustache.

  6. JuanPaul Says:

    The necromancer resurrected a porn ‘stache. What’s next, a tube top?

    “Whoa-o here she comes, she’s a necromancer”

    He may well feel he’s made a huge mistake.

    One fine evening on the Extremely Foggy planet…

    I gotta say, this is the least Dorsai-looking Dorsai book I’ve ever seen. Mustache Boy [1] looks like a rejected extra from “Manos: The Hands of Fate.”

    [1] One day, he may become a Mustache Man. Not today.

    “As a magician, not only am I out standing in my field, I am a field unto myself. And it’s this big!!

  11. A. R. Yngve Says:

    Talk about mixed messages! Is this a fantasy book or a “Dorsai” sci-fi book…?
    The whole thing frankly looks like a spoof.

    Are we SURE this isn’t a spoof…?

  12. Mel M Says:

    Necromancer boy really needs to not raid his grandma’s closet for his robes. Baby blue hostess gowns really don’t fit with the whole army of the dead theme. The ringlets don’t help.

  13. Bibliomancer Says:

    Necromancer? Well, it’s all fun and games until Satan decides to actually show up.

  14. Bruce A Munro Says:

    @Bibliomancer: or when you mix up the graves and bring back from the dead someone you really don’t want to meet.

  15. Bibliomancer Says:

    @Bruce – Yeah. I’m getting a real monkeys-paw vibe here.

    I’ve read this book and don’t think anyone in it looked like that. That’s definitely a tween or teen with a mustache stuck on.

    I was going to pick out who deserved a GSS, but it looks like this is another day when everyone does.

    Extra GSS to @Tat and @Tor, and double-extra to @fred, because I had the same thought. Good callback, @BC.

  18. Ikari Gendo Says:

    Did he grow up to be this guy?

  19. Ryan Says:

    @Ikari Gendo – I knew I had seen that pose and face before!

  20. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @Ikari: So he needs more cowbell?
