Hello Dolly!Click for larger image

Raoul Comments: Does she have wings? Is she being suspended by strings? Or is it just general weightlessness?

Published 1974

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!

    So that’s where Kenny Everett got the idea for the Rod Stewart sketch,

  2. Cornelius Says:

    In the future, motorbike leaps over a number of busses will be replaced with bodily throwing people over men’s heads.

  3. Michael Toland Says:

    Did somebody put hooks in those poor dudes’ eyes? Is that same somebody pulling the strings? Looks extremely painful.

  4. NomadUK Says:


    (NB: Fantastic Voyage, but with four Stephen Boyds and blue, even more revealing wetsuits.)

  5. Leak Says:

    So in the future we won’t have hoverboards, but discount fireworks jetpacks?

  6. fred Says:

    Aerodynamic perfection.

  7. Dr Bob Says:

    As well as dangling her from strings, someone appears to have sawn the poor woman in half, then glued her together with her torso at an improbable angle. It’s a pity the omniscient authorities aren’t putting a stop to that sort of thing.

  8. Francis Boyle Says:

    It’s nice that they colour coded the clones (well, probably not for the clones) but I would have gone with red, green, blue, and yellow.

    Also, the Mythbusters demonstrated that shouldn’t build your rocket/jet pack from plans you found on the internet – and this cover proves that it’s still true in 2072.

  9. B. Chiclitz Says:

    Another perspective fiasco. Is she really tiny or are the clones gigantic? And what happened to the lower half of her left leg? It’s all stretched out. Must be the result of the sawing-and-gluing operation.

  10. B. Chiclitz Says:

    I keep thinking the blurb would be better if it read: “Four Marx Brothers.”

  11. Bruce A Munro Says:

    The Future, where boobs are delivered by rocket!

    I was unaware being cloned gave you laser eyes, but it probably will be helpful in fighting that Omniscient Government.

    @B. Chiclitz: four Harpos would confuse the heck out of even an Omniscient Government.

  12. A. R. Yngve Says:

    B Chiclitz: The Marx Brothers of the future are

    Warpo Marx

  13. B. Chiclitz Says:

    @A.R.Y.—Brilliant! GSS!! And their big hits are “Quark Soup” and “A Night at the Space Opera”!

  14. GSS ex-noob Says:

    If she’s trying to weave in and out of the eye-lasers (like a jewel thief in a heist movie), it’s a good thing her waist is a ball joint like Barbie’s.

    @ARY/BC: GSS!

  15. Bruce A Munro Says:

    GSS, indeed.

    Myself, I’ve always been fond of “Alien Crackers”, with Warpo as Captain Spaulding the Intergalactic Explorer.

  16. Tat Wood Says:

    I was always fond of ‘A Day at the Species’.

  17. B. Chiclitz Says:

    “Yesterday I lasered a Venusian in my pajamas. How he got in my pajamas I can’t figure out.”

  18. JJYoyo Says:

    This was used later in the (cut) scene from Watchmen where Dr
    Manhattan uses his awesome powers to see how he’d look in a toupee.
