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!

    A yellow spacesuit covers a multitude of sins on those long space journeys.

    Sit down, you two! You’re blocking the drive-in screen!

    She appears to have changed from a space floozy on this cover to a space goddess on the other cover of this double. Or vice versa.

  4. B. Chiclitz Says:

    Looks like “Dancing with the Rebellious Stars” is on for another season, with a new emcee.

  5. Bruce A Munro Says:

    @fred: when hats get that silly, it’s time to run to the nearest rocket and GTFO.

    Future couple disappointed in that year’s Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade float.

    “Why? Why baked beans on toast for breakfast? You KNEW today was my spacewalk!”

  8. Tat Wood Says:

    A cut scene from ‘Dubarry was a Lady’ where Red Skelton and Virginia O’Brien meet the Cloakroom Attendant of Tomorrow. He pulls faces; she doesn’t.

  9. JuanPaul Says:

    “REBELLIOUS” is a silly looking word for a book cover.

  10. Tor Mented Says:

    “What the name of the book?”

    “‘The Rebellious Stars.'”

    “So it’s about a pirate mutiny?”

  11. Hammy Says:

    Ah, rebellious stars. I always figured that as they got a little older, they’d go through this phase…..

  12. GSS ex-noob Says:

    Why, indeed, is he floating in a space suit, while the couple is standing there in plain clothes (though not much on her)?

    @B’man: GSS!

  13. Bruce A Munro Says:

    The continuing adventures of Mr. Bananaman!

  14. Tat Wood Says:

    @Bruce A Munro: so that’s General Blight at bottom left? He looks different without the tache.

  15. THX 1139 Says:

    @Tat: Auntie scrubbed up well, too.

  16. GSS ex-noob Says:

    And what, pray tell, is the probably-mechanical dark thing?

  17. Bruce A Munro Says:

    @GSS ex-noob: movie projector? Futuristic golf bag? Vacuum tube technology Alexa? Random doomsday machine? A Plot Device?

  18. A. R. Yngve Says:

    “Quick, darling – let me use you as a human shield to protect me from Helium Astronaut!”

  19. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @Bruce: I keep seeing it as a golf bag, myself. None of them are dressed for that, though. She’s probably wearing spike heels that would be hard on the greens and dangerous on the rough.

    @ARY: It really does look like he’s using her as a shield. Hopefully he’s the himbo and she’s got magic zappy powers or something.
