    It’s not the same since they recast Warwick Davis.

  2. Francis Boyle Says:

    Originally titled The Ambidextrous Magician but they had to change that after they say what the artist sent in.

    The lilac nail polish just doesn’t go with her fetish clothing.

    Need a ‘bowties are cool’ tag.

    How is this NOT a movie by the SyFy Channel or a direct-to-DVD Asylum flick?

  5. A. R. Yngve Says:

    Well, I actually like this one.

  6. Bruce A Munro Says:

    “Things are even more wibbly-wobbly that usual”, thought the Doctor.

    Jakey the Amish Farmer in the tank is just happy to be here.

  9. JuanPaul Says:

    They even put Dolores from the Cranberries on the cover. May she rest in peace.

    Looks like that leprechaun’s been havin’ a few too many wee nips of the steroid-laced Jameson’s again.

    Is he ambivalent because there’s so much to choose from in all that clutter?

    Why is the goth elf presenting a sword to a … soup tureen? Hope it’s not sharpened, the way she’s holding it.

    I’m hearing this entire cover being spoken in an “Oirish” accent.

  12. Bruce A Munro Says:

    @GSS ex-noob: perhaps it’s a sentient soup tureen? If you look closely, it appears to have one of its little tootsies up in the air, like it’s moving around atop that book.

    (Still unclear what a soup tureen would want with a sword, true. Maybe it’s a collector.)

    @BruceAM (prev.):

    I think it’s a sentient teapot. It’s probably just finished pouring out that cuppa that’s in front of GothElf Jane, and she’s threatening it with violence if it doesn’t have any Sweet ‘n’ Low packets (artificial sweetener, that is).

    @Ryan (#8):

    Nice to see that Amish Jakey, who maybe took his friends’ advice to try out “tank farming” a little too literally, has an escort from the Knights of Medieval Warfare motorcycle gang.

  14. GSS ex-noob Says:

    I was going with tureen because I see no handle or spout (even tho the crockery is short and stout).

    Maybe whatever it is wants the sword because it’s tired of hearing that song.

  15. Emster Says:

    Artist, unsure where to start, with deadline looming, opens pages randomly and picks items and characters, also at random, then randomly draws them in around lead character. Voila! Hopes boss won’t fire him…
