    The Tron/ Zardoz mashup would have been way better than Tron: Legacy. Especially if Eddie Waring did the commentary for the Fil Rouge.

    The Mandalorian needs giant robot Grievous.

    David vs. Goliath, Sci-Fi Edition.

    I can see echoes here of Barlowe’s artwork for his much-later artwork series depicting the Hell of Dante’s Inferno (serious comment.)

    How can the robot/stone/alien beings walk effectively with those massive flat feet? And if they are robots, why are they wearing furry capes?

  6. Francis Boyle Says:

    Well, of course, any cover can be enhanced by the addition of a tiny robot frog in flairs. It’s kinda obvious.

    Book title seems anti-climatic followed by that giant Blish.

    BLISH!!!!! … anywhen…

    Cover art is cool in a warped Dark Crystal chase scene kinda way.

    I could’ve sworn this cover art was by the French comic-book artist Philippe Druillet (of Heavy Metal fame).

    And people thought there was no photographic evidence of how Lemmy left Hawkwind…

    @Max: I was not aware that Hawkwind had giant robots! I guess they try to keep that on the DL, lest the authorities take an interest.
