Phhhooowwwa!! Someone's been eating garlic!Click for full image

There’s only one thing in this world that can make a muscle infused man in a loincloth and his scantily clad female faint almost instantly. A naked red headed minotaur who is sneezing at them. Just remember, the sure fire way to success, keep the clothes to a minimum!

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: 8.82 out of 10)

    The minotaur seems to be using the same technique used by the lizard on
    It is employing the use of his tail to tickle the dudes crotch. There must be some sort of monster school where they learn these tricks.

    Pheuuuuuuw! . . . Breath of the Minotaur . . .

  3. James Lovegrove Says:

    The Minotaur is wearing the same ginger wig which Tom (of Tom and Jerry) often dons after he’s been blown up, scalped, shaved, or generally depilated as a result of some aggressive manoeuvre by Jerry. What next? Will our elfin hero batter him over the head with a frying pan? Drop an anvil on him? Set fire to his tail?

  4. Adam Roberts Says:

    I like that minotaur! In fact, I think I went out with its sister in the early 90s.

  5. SI Says:

    Must have been pretty hard for the minotaur to pierce his ear with hooves for hands!

    The womens line of sight seems to be heading for…. in fact.. I’m not even sure if the women has eyelids. Are her eyes solid white? Or is her eyes closed?

    Bah… I’m in a very unfunny mood today. More coffee!

    Bless you!

    Does the toupeed minotaur have Monster-sized Kleenex?

    The best part is that they made the Minotaur a ginger—truly terrifying.

  9. Oberonsson Says:

    Alas, the minotaur is one of the good guys in this novel, one of my favorites, so this gets a fail for accuracy as well

  10. Tom Noir Says:

    Although it’s very odd that the minotaur is sneezing, I am more concerned about the pair he’s surprised. One gets the impression that human anatomy was something the artist had read bout in a book one time. We have a woman with toothpick calves attempting to support her bony (but large) abdomen. We have a man who appears to be 70% buttock and whose microscopic hands can only manage to grasp a dagger by its blade, not its hilt. Honestly, the ginger minotaur comes off looking pretty reasonable by comparison.

    Hey, that ginger minotaur looks awfully familiar… hmm. it appears as the cover of White Dwarf magazine 59 with a slightly better (?) single female figure:\

    wonder which came first?

  12. David Cowie Says:

    The man appears to be sticking his arm into the woman’s rib cage. And what happened to his left leg?

  13. David Cowie Says:

    This cover might be by Peter Andrew Jones – the PA(squiggle) mark at the bottom of the cover is similar to his PAJ mark.

  14. zhu bajie Says:

    Yes, indeed. The contents page of WD59 attributes that cover to Peter Andrew Jones – mystery solved!?!

    Think the alternative version girl is about to launch into a rendition of Kate Bush’s Babooshka. Aiy-yay-ya!

  15. Tom Noir Says:

    Oh man, I’d forgotten about this one!

  16. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    The artist seems to have had a tremendous problem with the lower leg. Tom pointed out that her legs are outright skeletal, in fact, I’m not convinced she has a fibula bone. But look at him! His gastrocnemius is shoved so far up his calf it’s almost into his knee. His ankle is making an almost impossible angle (I tried just now) and eating his Achilles tendon in the process. And the artist gave up on his left leg entirely.

  17. Tom Noir Says:

    Ginger minotaurs are the WORST.

  18. B. Chiclitz Says:

    You call that puny little butane clik-stik a firestarter? You’ll never get the charcoal lit with that. Now stand aside and I’ll how you how a real pro gets a BBQ started!

  19. rev Says:

    Alms for an ex-leper?

  20. A.R.Yngve Says:

    The Minotaur was the worst spokesman the Hair Club For Men ever hired.

  21. Tom Noir Says:

    What was this little guy’s plan if they ran into trouble, anyway? Shake his tiny stick at it with his teensy forearms??

  22. anon Says:

    You again!? Whatever you’re selling I’m not buying!
    It’s been a long day at the office. My boss is an asshole, I’m out of beer and now there’s you.
    Get off my property while you’re still able to walk!

    Back stage at Top of the Pops.
