    If you passed on buying the hardcover waiting for a cheaper paperback printing you waited 18 years.

    To be fair, this does look exactly like a fourth-former’s procrastinatory doodling when he realises that it’s six PM on the last Sunday of half-term and he hasn’t even started his assignment, due to be submitted on Monday morning.

    I believe that font is called Comic Ass

    It’s not like there’s a lack of empty space available, so why the hyphenation?

    The robot with horns appears to be swearing revenge against the big goofy head in the sky, and if the head is responsible for this cover, I don’t blame them.

    “Migraine” comes from the Greek “hemicrania”.
    This guy has half a head, and the art’s liable to give you a bad headache.
    I don’t think that was what the artist had in mind, but there it is.

    @fred: visual spatial distortions from the headache?
