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: 4.33 out of 10)

    “By Crom, wench! What Stygian magic keeps those brass nipple tips on?”

  2. Leak Says:

    I take it the story is about the importance of vazki-nation?

  3. Max Bathroom Says:

    Women flocked to Vazkor’s mighty sword, like they did for his father Vazkor, and his father Vazkor’s father Vazkor and his father Vazkor’s father Vazkor’s father Vazkor before him.

  4. Francis Boyle Says:

    The barbarian tent-dress wasn’t very successful due to it’s tendency to switch modes at inopportune moments.

  5. Leak Says:

    Well, at least his father wasn’t called “A-Bitch”…

  6. Bibliomancer Says:

    “Vazkor do you favor. Cut off clothes.”

  7. JuanPaul Says:

    “mmm, Fuaxnan like a little love chub”

  8. Raoul Says:

    Brothers and sisters I have none
    but Vazkor’s father
    is Vazkor’s son.

    If his mortal enemy isn’t Vazcor, son of Vazcor, why not.

    Where is that red cape fastened?

  11. Tor Mented Says:

    Why bother with that much dress fabric if you’re not going to wear it?

  12. Tat Wood Says:

    @Ryan: he’s put the hood of his anorak over his head but not put his arms in the sleeves, like when we played at being Batman as kids, but put a wig over the hood for some reason.

    Even if I could take this cover seriously, he looks so much like an absurdly buff version of my uncle I get the giggles.

  13. Emster Says:

    Wow, that’s a classic!

    Greg and Jenny were having a great time at the Barbarian Fair, until, in spite of Greg’s warnings, someone in the beer tent got a little handsy. Then everyone suddenly realized that the sword was not a prop…

    Is your virtue injured in an accident? Call Vizkor and Vizkor, Hyborian Lawyer Warriors by Crom!. We will fight for you … to the death!

    That is not how you do the Heimlich maneuver.

  16. GSS ex-noob Says:

    I suppose he’s grabbed the damsel so he can start on the next generation of Vazkors.

    Her garb looks thoroughly barbarian, except a booted and teat shielded barbarian woman would never be wearing all that white fabric to trip her up (on only the front, even). And how does it all stay so white?

    Her waist is too small, but the rest of her is full-figured, so the boobage isn’t completely out of proportion.

    I think @FB is right; somehow she got part of a tent stuck in her belt.

  17. Emster Says:

    I would like to have been in the room when they showed Ms. Lee the cover art. Would she have reacted, “Naked babe, that’ll sell it!” or more like, “who’s gonna take me seriously?” I’m going for #1 because if yer gonna spend all that time writing, y’gotta actually sell some books to your main demographic.

  18. Bruce A Munro Says:

    “It’s no good, son: it’s Vazcors all the way down.”

    He was just going to clean the blood off his sword with some of the tent cloth, but it unaccountably had a woman attached to it.

    @Tat Wood: that’s his hair. (“Vazcor, son of Vazcor, and the Search for Hair Conditioner”)

  19. Francis Boyle Says:

    @GSS ex-noob

    Faux-nan strong, make damsel waist narrow!

  20. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @Francis: He’ll never get the next Vazkor if he keeps squishing ladies’ abdominal organs!

    @fred: I think his mortal enemy is Korvaz (son of, etc.).

  21. Tat Wood Says:

    @Bruce: the red cloak is his hair?

    Are we sure that Vazkor wasn’t his mum’s name?
