    They look remarkably clean despite being in the middle of a zombie apocalypse.

    Someone tell these kids that is not how you do the electric slide.

  3. Tat Wood Says:

    And then in the sequel they fliip it around so Jerry Garcia teleports into a Whitesnake video.

  4. JuanPaul Says:

    This could be an Always Sunny in Philadelphia season 16 poster.

  5. Tor Mented Says:

    I’m willing to bet that the turtle-looking character is named something like Rembrandt or Caravaggio.

    1988! When even the zombie apocalypse was sponsored by Day-Glo.

    Back cover. Ennui and despair look remarkably like zombies.

    Planet of the Dead – ONLY available on Sega Megadrive!

    This could the ‘It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia’ season 16 poster .

    Peak 80’s, in clothes, haircuts, and colors.

    That font lets you know who published this.

    I *hope* those are rhinestones or sequins.

    I’m guessing the lizard person on the right is male, because his chest is exposed. He and high-water jeans boy look the best-armed of the lot, so I bet they’d do better against the zombie hordes.

    @FB: hee!

    @Ryan: is this another one of your Arizona finds? Whoever they are, they’ve had this since 1993. Maybe time to mark it down?

    Maybe the artist realised that reptilians/amphibians wouldn’t have breasts. Nah, who am I kidding – this is Baen.

    Planet of the Headbands!

    Slowly they came to the realization this wasn’t Galacti-con 2188 and they’d beamed down the wrong planet.

    “Samurai tactics,” Like dying when confronted by people with guns? And I thought it was Ninjas that had magical powers in the 80s. (Possibly the writer can’t tell the difference.)

  15. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @Bruce: Ninja, samurai — of course this publisher doesn’t know the difference. They’re all furriners from the “Mysterious East”.
