    There’s the David Lynch ‘Dune’ and then there’s the Uwe Boll/ Nic Cage ‘Dune’.

  3. fred Says:

    The two tiny TING!s on the sword hilt. How were they noticed with all the rest of the awesome going on?

  4. fred Says:

    Japanese publication of one of Dalton’s Rhodan novels. The only comment translates to ‘Expectations.’ With that cover, damn right.

    Nicolas Cage turned quickly to one side. “What was that?” he gasped. He turned just as quickly to the other side. “There it was again!” He spun back and, with growing desperation in his voice, he wailed, “What in the name of God is following me?”
    The woman said, “It’s the feather you attached to the wrong side of your hat brim, doofus.”

    Cover Confuses Cosmically
    Plus Purple Nic in gloves

    Everything makes sense now. (Well, I’m still unsure if we’re dealing with one giant two-headed snake, or two giant one-head snakes but no doubt a rapier well suffice in either case.)

    Closer examination reveals that he’s wearing the SF shorts. They’re purple, that’s how you can tell they’re ‘futuristic’.

  8. B. Chiclitz Says:

    At least one of those Mickey Mouse™ gloves is on backwards.

    “The longest SF series in the history of Earth” – that’s what I call the “hard sell!”

    “The longest-running SF series in 4.5 billion years! The series that will continue selling until the Sun burns out!”

  10. A. R. Yngve Says:

    “Cosmos continues…”
    Now wait a minute. The PBS series COSMOS with Carl Sagan didn’t start broadcasting until 1978!
    What devilish time-travel paradoxing is this??

    Walking without rhythm to avoid attracting the worm won’t be too difficult for these two.

  12. Leak Says:

    Well, the original cover is a bit less “out there”, but still…

    @A.R. Yngve: have they unearthed the 5000-issue series yet that Elrond Hubbub secretly based his Xenu Cinematic Universe on? At least Perry Rhodan is at issue 3131 and counting… 🙂

  13. THX 1139 Says:

    Winner of Pimp of the Year? What a pity we can’t see his shoes.

  14. Bruce A Munro Says:

    @A.R. Yngve @9: it kinda makes you tired, doesn’t it? “No matter how long you live, you’ll never have enough time to catch up.”

    @Leak: at least the silly outfit in the original looks sort of “science fictional.” Space Pimp Nic looks like he just stumbled out of a random costume party and into an SF setting.

  15. GSS ex-noob Says:

    My first thought was a Jager-esque “NIZE HAT!”

    Still not as bad as many of Cage’s movies, I’ll bet, but the IRS is a harsh master.

    @Tor: GSS!

    @Bruce: Depending on what kind of party it was, the snake heads and fog might be what Nic’s hallucinating, not the actual setting. The lady in the sensible dress just wants to get outta there.

    Come on down to alien sand dunes…

    Read Tor Mented’s caption. Almost peed pants. Again. Good Show, Sir!
