'Fear my tiny Ting!'

Max Bathroom Comments: Only a real man can shave with a broadsword and not nick himself…

Published 1988

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!

    Derek Smalls decides to bag Mozart and go all in for Wagner; more swords.

    A sword with an earring. If I were a big G god I would definitely feel challenged not to at least giggle a bit.

    He wanders Midgard issuing his chalenge: Gizza Job!

    I’d not thought of Yosser, to be honest, but now I look at it again maybe he’s sporting a donkey jacket under that cloak…

  5. Tracy Says:

    This just screams “Prog Rock” to me.

    I thought a Death-Binder was where one stores one’s collection of famous obituary notices.

    He’s out to poke Death in the eye.

    @Nomad beat me to the Tap reference. Petitioning the judges if something from the Easy Rider/The Last Movie milieu is also acceptable. Really, who does art like this in 1988?

    Also agreeing with @fred, @Tracy, @Bruce.

    Good find, Max.

  9. Bruce A Munro Says:

    Even the Gods themselves were challenged… by his mustache.

    This was the 3rd in a trilogy, but was never published in the US.

    Bernard King? The only Bernard King I know of was an American basketball player.

    I’m guessing that the gods were challenged to a slam-dunk contest, or a three-point shooting contest, or maybe just a good old game of ‘horse’.

  12. GSS ex-noob Says:

    I keep looking at his eyes. They don’t match. Between that and the sword’s earring (which doesn’t even Tiny Ting!) it’s hard for me to take him seriously, let alone believe gods would be challenged. I mean, just hurl a bolt of lightning at the tip of that sword and poof.

    His forehead jewelry appears to be surgically attached.

    It is a little less risible than the Vargr-Moon cover.

    @fred: Guess it didn’t sell too well over here.

    Earring attached to sword, headband melting into forehead, moustache fading into face. Yes – anything AI can do the UAI can do better.

  14. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @Vlttp: LOL!

    I’d give a pass to the mustache/face fade, since one does come from t’other. But the forehead jewelry is spot on, and if the sword is attached to his hand, it’ll be easy to swing but useless at any other time Could be fused to his palm/fingers too.

    The only tip-off that it’s UAI and not AI is that the number of fingers is correct. Probably.

    Hey, “Death-Blinder” ROCKED! One of the best Spinal Tap songs!

    In ancient times
    Hundreds of years before the dawn of history
    There lived a strange warrior
    The Death-Blinder

    No one knows who he was
    Or… what he was doing
    But his legacy remains
    Hewn into the living rock
    of Death-Blinder Mountain…
