    The Health and Safety in Ruby Rose’s safari park was just pathetic.

  2. fred Says:

    It’s like a G rated version of a Dick Blade cover. Clothed, not colorful, and no wacky body proportion problems.

    Yeah, I know neutering your cat is good and all, but you probably shouldn’t get Ruby to do it. I don’t think she’s a qualified vet.

    “Oh come on! Another random angry ape encounter? Do you even want to DM this game?”

    Hmm, I’ve heard of pegging, but with a sabre?

    [Charlton Heston voice] “A planet where apes evolved from men and attacked Sinead O’Connor?? It’s a madhouse! A madhouse!!

  8. Tor Mented Says:

    Just above Sinead’s head, has that gorilla been hacked to pieces? Or did the mask fall off Ray “Crash” Corrigan?

  9. B. Chiclitz Says:

    As a whole, the blurb wins this week’s “Damning with Faint Praise” award, possibly.

  10. GSS ex-noob Says:

    Ruby-Sinead’s stance looks entirely unsuitable for effectively saber-ing anything. But at least she’s got clothes that aren’t skin tight, and no spike heels.

    Where the floating gorilla head came from, why the colors are so blah, and whether S.F. Chronicle actually liked the series will remain a mystery. Possibly.

  11. Bruce A Munro Says:

    And while his human friends struggle with the ape horde, Battlecat sees a tweety bird.

    @B. Chilitz; “The best giant cat-riding, sword-wielding, buzzcut nomadic desert barbarian hero odd couple novel out there!”

    @GSS ex-noob: it may be that the cover is just very badly faded. See this:

  12. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @Bruce: Ah, so the yellow ink was very cheap and not at all colorfast.

    That does, however, add a different mystery: how are there so many gorillas in a desert?

  13. Tracy Says:

    Don’t they know gorillas are an endangered species???

    That lioness in front looks oddly dwarfed, like a Munchkin kitty (the feline equivalent of a dachshund.)

  14. JuanPaul Says:

    They missed a few apes last time so they came back to finish the job.

  15. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @Tracy: Lioness looks squished from front to back as well, which Munchkins aren’t. No wonder she looks cranky. There’s some skeletal problems going on, for sure.

    And how do you think gorillas got endangered in the first place? It was these two.
