Good Show Sir Comments: The apostrophe is on the spine. Not on the cover. Quality copy editing.

Thanks to Ryan for sending this in!

Published 1975

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: 7.30 out of 10)

    I hope it was worth it making the giant Ken doll a cuckhold.

    “Berserker Unit 1175, are you playing with your dolls again?”

    “They’re not dolls, they’re _action figures_!”

    When you can’t even get an puppet/doll/action figure right.

    Just another example of why we need a “that’s not how anything works” tag.

    If it weren’t for a plague and a recession, I would love to go to used book stores with Ryan and Mrs. Ryan. Would be a fabulous field trip. Maybe rent a bus and take the whole GSS gang.

    I give them +1 points for the guy actually wearing a bearskin shirt. Minus many points for everything else.

    Little guy doesn’t stand a chance, even with his big polearm. (That’s what she said). Unless he can run under big guy and poke some tender bits.

    Was this drawn from toys? Little guy is action-figure size, big guy is Ken-doll size (and weird jointing). Except the small one is microcephalic, which may explain why he’s taking on someone over twice his size.

    The pink and yellow clash worse than the two guys. At least subsequent printings eliminated that and put the apostrophe in.

    The winner goes on to meet Stretch Armstrong.

    Definitely gold lame frame worthy. Kinda artsy funky background.

    I agree, if we could just get either the Tardis or the teleporter working properly, I’m in for the GSS field trip. I hope that includes someplace neato for lunch where wait staff don’t care that we’re all yapping loudly about books. I promise to have all my Sarnath homework done before going out…

    @Emster: Hotel restaurants are of extremely variable quality, but one which is home to one or more cons annually are used to the ways of fans. “Yeah, table for 12. You know from before that we WILL be talking about books and the entire table will burst into very odd songs simultaneously. But we tip good. Bring us cider and chocolate.”
