    The queue for the Portaloo was getting out of hand.

  2. Bruce A Munro Says:

    Everyone gazed enviously at the man with the Big Shiny Rock.

    I thought it was mandatory to have a sword when you are wearing swashbuckling boots.

    Dude, they don’t accept ting at the checkout.

    Bloke in the pink shirt, behind Our Hero: well, REALLY!

    Bloke in hat next to him (in Kenneth Williams voice): we’ve all got your number, dearie.

    Bloke in green next to him: how can he move his arms in that cloak? I’ve been wanting to scratch my nose for hours.

    It’s good to see voguing making a comeback!

  7. Tor Mented Says:

    Of course the sun is bloody. It’s made of plasma.
    Like, duh!

  8. Max Bathroom Says:

    Looking at the bling wielder’s get up, that title might be a typo for “The Hoody Sun”…

    @fred: I kinda like “Man desperately begs for bling while friends look on in embarrassment” https://www.isfdb.org/wiki/images/9/98/DBLTGSNNPJ1971.jpg

    Judging by the dates on the stickers, this book is about 5 minutes away from being on the “Free — Please take this crap away” table. And about 10 minutes away from the dumpster.

    Why the infinitely long queue? If the sun’s so bloody, why is most of the cover lavender, dearie?

    Most people seem to have a variety of colors on, but I had to embiggen to make sure the Black woman next to Pink Shirt Man has a jumpsuit exactly the same color as her skin, and not, as it first appeared, that she was standing in line in nowt but white go-go boots.

    @fred: Everyone seems to be wearing swashbuckler (or go-go) boots, and yet there’s not a sword among them. Ting!Man even has the swashbuckler cape. If he had a sword like he’s supposed to, that would at least explain how he got to the head of the line and grabbed the Ting!

    @Tor: LOL and GSS!

    @fred/Bruce: I see TING! is important on most of them.

    This one is the most distinctive (read: awkward):

    and proves, yet again, Feet Are Hard To Draw.

    It gets worse – “The Bloody Sun” brings with it

    “The Bloody Sunrise”

    (and Neil Gaiman, incidentally…)

    He’s doing the classic “here are my jewels” pose.

  14. Bruce A Munro Says:

    GSS, @Tracy!

  15. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @Tracy: So he’s only got the one, then?

    Reminds me of a certain WWII ditty.

  16. Emster Says:

    @fred – and the Dutch shamelessly marketing to the pimply teen boy demographic… It’s not 70’s SF without a nekkid bum to boost sales! (however a more artistically savvy cover than this stiff mess…)
