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: 8.40 out of 10)

    (80s joke) “Aw gee, the tracking on the graveyard ghosts is out of whack again.”

    Yellow and with three fingers. Is this a Simpsons crossover?

    Simak’s work is gentle and elegiac, very much pastoral…

    … so let’s put a scene from a cheap foreign horror movie on it.

    @THX: I don’t think it’s tracking, the top isn’t bent over at a 45 degree angle and there aren’t any of those little tracking rainbow dot/line things at top or bottom. (80’s response)

    “Look, do you want your dead body dug up or not?”

    Admittedly, drawing a Hazer, who are wondrous and beautiful in life with their glowing, golden auras, ugly and alien after they die and their light goes out, would be a hard trick for any artist to pull off. “Radioactive space granny in a bathrobe” probably wasn’t the best way to go about it, however.

    No way to tell whether that’s a good foot or a bad foot.

  8. Bruce A Munro Says:

    @B. Chiclitz: that’s the advantage of working with aliens. Some don’t even have feet!

    Geez, don’t tell me they’re bringing back Aunt May again!

  10. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @Bruce: GSS for “Radioactive space granny in a bathrobe”.

    @Tor: Nobody stays dead in comics except Uncle Ben. Anyway, MCU Aunt May is the far-from-decrepit Marisa Tomei, so this would have to be the comic book version. Even Lily Tomlin in “Into the Spider-Verse” kicked ass.

    Looks like Cliff got stuck with one of the reject covers that they couldn’t pawn off on anyone else…
