    Sufficiently breathtaking is the green, orange, and purple colour palette.

    My god, it’s full of antennas.

    “Breathtaking adventures in space” – isn’t that commonly called a “space murder mystery”?

  4. Francis Boyle Says:

    Space DDR lets you do backflips but is lacking in atmosphere.

  5. Cornelius Says:

    When spaceships were modelled after failed balloon animals.

    Commuters – THIS is how you deal with people who use the Quiet Carriage for gaming and aggravating conversations.

  7. Ryan Says:

    It was the purple-gumboot-and-dishwashing-gloves combination that really sold this cover to me.

    “Roger, Houston. I put my space boot in. I took my space boot out. I put my space boot in and I shook it all about.

    I’d like to go back and introduce — from the beginning — an “adventures in brown” tag. That being my first thought here, and we’ve seen many. WHY is space brown here instead of pitch black?

    Why the video-game playing astronaut is wearing gloves like Mom used when washing dishes, and cheap boots like Mom wore when gardening, who knows? And hers weren’t purple. @Ryan is correct about those. And he also has nice clean hands.

    Minus helmet, I could approximate this with things I already have around the house for deep cleaning; the gloves and boots, plus a Tyvek jumpsuit. If I ever see friend of the site Lee Moyer again, I might.

    The whole suit doesn’t seem air-tight enough. Whatever he’s got on his hip/butt also looks very pointy and the balloon animal ship is stupid.

    @Tor: GSS! Perfect. Everyone’s quite on form today, good show sirs for a Monday!

    Entranced by the latest robo-cat videos on SpaceTube, Ralph was quite unaware just how far from the space station he’d drifted.

  11. Bruce A Munro Says:

    @GSS ex-noob: perhaps it’s an edges thing arising from physical media? The dark lines drawn or painted outlining the spacemen and spaceships tend to merge into a solidly black background?

  12. MaxBathroom Says:

    His machine doesn’t look all that silvery…

  13. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @Bruce: But then what’s the slightly-lighter-brown circle/sphere up right? It’s not the sun, because of the angle. And the men and ships don’t have black lines around them so that can’t be why either.
