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!

    Now, you might think they’re not very bright wearing space helmets with ordinary overalls but they’ve seen Alien and want to protect against facehuggers which at least makes the brighter than the characters in Promethious.

    Also, staying with the theme, a face hugger is just a dick with legs.

    They are wearing the colors of Kang, which makes me suspicious.

    ‘No, this doesn’t look quite suggestive enough yet. You two at the back, move a bit closer until
    your helmets are touching, then it’s going to be perfect!’

    Adios Bernard Cribbins.

    The shape of those ships makes me wonder what they’re exploring…

    Guy in front: “Run for it! Someone’s exploded all the Hugo awards!”

    Pointing guy: “You — go warn the Nebulas!”

    @fred: Also the colors of Hulk, so no telling what they’re up to (other than fleeing).

    RIP Bernard. You were a treasure.

    “Men! Our manly Space Service is being infiltrated by women. They may be out to take away our big, manly space rockets! Look out for women hiding behind initials and pseudonyms!”

    Is it? Yes! It’s by Virgil Finlay – very tame in comparison to some of his other works. If someone can find more Finlay SF covers, please share – his work is “awful”-ly creative and imaginative and I would thoroughly enjoy the GSS banter.

    Guy in front: Chet! This is supposed to be an action cover – quit napping under the list of featured artists and get back to looking alarmed/busy!
