Marvin Comments: The man with the boombox chest?

Published 1961

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: 7.50 out of 10)

    Is the little furry guy wondering, “I can’t tell, but I think he’s wearing dad!”

  2. A. R. Yngve Says:

    He was the toughest paparazzi of them all – he would chase Prince Harry to the end of the Universe…

    Tab Hunter and Rock Hudson in a swashunbuckling science-fiction adventure.

  4. Bruce A Munro Says:

    Fortunately, the protective wreckage prevents us from seeing that jungle boy is taking a wiz on the said wreckage.

    @Marvin: hey, that’s advanced technology. It’s also an air conditioner and a vending machine.

  5. Francis Boyle Says:

    Given the modesty wreckage I’m going to have to assume the guy’s naked but has some awesome, if somewhat unkempt, pubic hair.

    Guy in Blue Spacesuit: Ah, sweet mystery of life, at last I’ve found you!

  7. JuanPaul Says:

    “Swashbuckling”? I suppose his hair could be described as “swashing”. I see no buckles, however.

  8. Bibliomancer Says:

    It took me awhile but I think I found the cleverly concealed “EMSH” signature.
    I could be wrong but I think it is written sideways to the right of the lower dial on the upper left part of the wreckage.

    Oh, and even Emsh can’t paint feet.

  9. B. Chiclitz Says:

    Judging by the way the little furry guy is stalking Star Hunter (cousin of Tab, I assume from his hunky look), I think he’s gonna have to change his name to “Claude Balz.”

    @B’Mancer—good catch on the “Emsh.”

  10. Tor Mented Says:

    It just now occurred to me, for the first time in my life, that the term ought to properly be “swashbucklering.”

  11. Tat Wood Says:

    Why are you all assuming that Ginge is a dude? Andre wasn’t. Maybe Accordion-Man is trying to work it out from the back view and having as much luck as we are with the title (in pink) in the way.

    (PS. Talking of Tab Hunter, check out the 50s matinee idol on the other side of the Ace Double although John Ashley is perhaps a better match. And here’s what the author had to say

  12. GSS ex-noob Says:

    Nature Boy knows just what angle to stand at and how to turn his head so the wind blows his hair most attractively. Vogue!

    @fred: I read a review that suggests that Tab and Rock would indeed be the right pair to be in this.

    @B’man: well spotted!

    @Tor: My gob is smacked. You are correct.

    @Tat: I don’t know about the others, but I was going by the jawline. Also, there basically aren’t any women in novels of this era, even though Andre was one.
