    I can deal with the image, but that text! There just ain’t no justification for that justification.

    Spend too much time in the New Mexico sunlight, and you might start seeing weird things…

  3. Cat Eldridge Says:

    Is that a frog I see? Or am I just having nausea? What a sickening color that is!

  4. Tor Mented Says:

    It took me a moment to realize that the top of the cover is supposed to be a satellite dish and not random white space.
    Anyway, it’s a conquistatoad in search of El Dofroggo.

    I like the look on the yellow goblin guy’s face, he’s all: “How come toad boy gets to be the conquistador and I’m just a spear carrier? My complexion’s way better than his…”

    – ‘I knew we should have turned left at Albuquerque.’

    – Stranded in the desert, miles outside Socorro, the rotund one turns to the skinny one and whinges: ‘Well, this is another fine mess you’ve gotten us into.’

    (As a UNM alumnus and long-ago New Mexico resident, I’d love to get a copy of this!)

    Wrap around? Some big names in this.

    “The historical reenactment biz hasn’t been the same since the aliens arrived.”
    “Well, at least these ones aren’t playing Nazis.”

    fred@6: Well, you just cost me twenty-three bucks. Hope you’re happy!

    Anyone else getting deja vous from Sir Toad? Like we’ve seen him somewhere before?

    Artist – Marc Davis as is the Disney animator?

  11. The Blue Are Coming Says:

    Pepe and Longface are nonchalant as their trousers fall yet again. Perhaps someday they’ll discover those belts and buckles aren’t for chest armour.

  12. Leak Says:

    “A Very Large Array” – uh oh, buffer overflows were already a thing in 1987…

    I suppose that’s how you get lizardmen… and that text justification…

    This cover just missed being posted on “World frog day” (which is March 20th).,us%20scrunch%20up%20our%20faces.

  14. Tat Wood Says:

    Froggie went a-courtin’ and wished he’d swiped the other way.

  15. Tor Mented Says:

    @daard: It should have been posted in 2024. That’s a leap year.

  16. The Blue Are Coming Says:

    GSS @Tor !

  17. B. Chiclitz Says:

    “But Señor Quixote, you are supposed to be tilting at windmills, not a radio telescope dish! And aren’t you supposed to be the skinny one and me the fat one?”

  18. The Blue Are Coming Says:

    @(Memory)Leak – coder cred established.

  19. JuanPaul Says:

    Snodgrass…I feel like I just smoked some of that

  20. Leak Says:

    @TBAC: guilty as charged – what gave it away? 😛

  22. GSS ex-noob Says:

    I’ve been to New Mexico a number of times, and while I’ve seen lizards/frogs and conquistador armor, it’s never been in conjunction like this.

    @The Blue: Looks more like poofy Spanish breeches than today’s trousers. No belt required.

    @Leak: Way before then!

    @Tor: GSS!
