All this time we've been flying I've been wondering one thing.  Why don't you wear more than a loin cloth?Click for full image

Picture this – A well built guy (and I mean Muscles From Brussels material) showing off his golden helmet, wearing his skimpy purple briefs, holding a long hard wooden spear… and riding on top of his large pink dragon. What do you mean that’s what the Internet is for?

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! Feels so good!Good Show Sir! (Average: 8.11 out of 10)

    I don’t know. I mean the physics of riding around on a dragon.

    1. It’s going to be pretty bumpy getting off anywhere as the dragon needs to flap its wings to get momentum. I’m sure once you’re gliding you’d be fine.

    2. If you actually came up against any g-forces then the straps around his legs would clearly cut into his circulation.

    Possibly I’m reading too much into this cover, but I thought it should be said.

    The strapping is clearly an early form of G-Suit. Clearly.

    eww, gross… his pink dragon is all veiny…

    Hmm, it’s not clear if those straps on his legs are actually part of his, erm, “armor” or if they are holding him onto the dragon. I hope it’s the latter. Otherwise, given the dragon’s current configuration, he’s about to get off this ride.

    Unfortunately, I cannot make a single joke about this cover that’s Safe For Work.

    That poor, poor dragon is clearly traumatised. It’s probably thinking “Argh! Get off! Get off! I can feel your junk on my neck!!”

  7. Anna T. Says:

    This needs a “proportional issues” tag. I mean seriously, look at how weird his leg looks when compared to the rest of him.

  8. Tom Noir Says:

    I don’t see anything wrong with the leg besides the fact that it has been severed from his body.

    Scales. Chafing. Just saying.

    @Tat: what odds that Blades Halfevaporated is Aware of him?

    The editor missed an opportunity for a palindromic title – ALTLA. Instead it looks like a keyboard command.

  13. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    Sequels include ASKJ, YAH, and the most popular by far, GOO.

  14. RachelJ Says:

    @Dead Stuff. Of course she is, he’s probably one of the enigmatic Menod Patriach Aware Stragglermen. Mystery solved!

    What I want to know is, is the dragon actually pink in the book?

  15. GSS noob Says:

    The “Drs. Freud and Jung disagree” tag is SHAMEFULLY underused on this site!

    This one also needs a “busy hands”.

    “Alta” is Spanish for “high”, which I suspect someone was.

    “Joey, do you like movies about gladiators?”
