Hot fisting action!

Emster Comments: Techno(over)kill… Guys! Guys! This could have all been avoided if you’d calmed down and remembered: righty tighty, lefty loosely.

Published 2002

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!

    Hollywood’s fixation with lights inside space helmets goes double for people whose goggles glow in the dark. No wonder they’ve got a recruitment problem if they keep shooting each other or falling down manholes.

    It looks like this book is titled STARFIST* Shouldn’t the actual title be in larger print, or below the Starfist, or have a larger-print number?

    @Emster: I had to unhook and rehook a lot of AV cables recently; you bet I was mumbling “righty tighty, lefty loosey”.

    @Tat: How do you know they don’t have glowing eyes?

    *Not to be confused with Starkist, sorry Charlie

    If you think Starfist doesn’t know how to dress, check out his brother Nightfist:

    This raises an important question. Do space marines have marching bands?

    I just wonder what’ll happen if they cross the streams …

    So medieval armor (with the added glowing eyeholes) is still au courant in the future, eh? Good to know when I decide to sell my greaves collection.

    By the way, the guy in front doesn’t seem actually to be holding a . . . gun.

    “Heeere’s fisty!”
    “It’s the 22nd century, Ted: get some newer references.”

    Unfortunately, they didn’t realize they’d boarded the wrong spaceship until _after_ most of the birthday party was disintegrated.

    @GSxn – r-tighty l-loosey was also the mantra for those of us first timers in auto shop class. Shop teacher was a saint…

    @BC – Hmmm, not the first cover I’ve submitted with questionable hand location, I swear it’s conincidence. But now I can’t unsee it…

    @fred… double hmmmmm….

    @Emster: If whatever they’ve just ‘sploded gets rebuilt, there’s gonna be a lot of r-t, l-l needed, what with the various wires and pipes? spokes? truncheons? toilet plungers? all being loose.

    @Max: I actually LOL at “He will hit you with his fist!”. One hopes that’s a parody-type comic book.

    @BC: No, he doesn’t. And do all the marines look alike, and somewhat… simian? (insert your own joke here)

  10. Francis Boyle Says:

    I think a lot can be explained if we just assume that space marines are in fact some sort of simian-feline hybrid. The only thing that can’t be explained is why the hell this isn’t a BAEN.

  11. Max Bathroom Says:

    It is, or at least mostly it is. Hitman had this lengthy storyline where it starts off as a comedy comic and then after a while gets steadily grimmer and darker until it ends in tears. Nightfist is definitely a comedy character and appears quite early in the run, though.

  12. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @fred: A very good question. Possibly because not enough orange, no tits, and only one word is font abuse?

    400 years from now, the Marines are looking for a few good apes.

    @Max: Thanks.

    It’s the dreaded crotch emitter! Feared across the galaxy! Destroyer of space station doors!
