Finally a ship! Quick dramatic pose!Click for full image

An alien planet, with vegetation and all that, and another huge other planet in the background. And throw in a huge space ship taking off with a person throwing her fist in the air, making the reader ponder, “is she covering her eyes or simply shouting complaints?”

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: 5.45 out of 10)

    “That’s no moon”

    “eh, yes it is.”

    “well ok then”

  2. SI Says:

    I enjoy that the person looks like they could be shaking their fist at the ship, “Get off my lawn your pesky kids!!”

  3. JustinLeego Says:

    She uppercut the spaceship right into orbit with that one!

  4. Stephen Says:

    Am I the only one to notice that the fist-shaker seems to have an enormous fluffy tail? I think it’s just a badly drawn cloak, but my (grey tabby) cat has something that looks almost the same sticking out of her bum.

  5. Nix Says:

    CSA: that moon? That’s Anarres, that is. (Obviously we’re on Urras, from all the water and the fact that we have spacecraft landing outside the wall.)

  6. SI Says:

    I think they just woke her up. She’s out on that planets landscape in her dressing gown.

  7. Tom Noir Says:

    I kind of like the art. It’s a decent picture and they kept the tacky fonts to a minimum. Plus I can tell at a glance what’s going on here – the spaceship has just marooned this person on an alien world, possibly even on a… HURRICANE MOON!

  8. Stevie T Says:

    What in the world is she wearing? A swimsuit? With an overly-dramatic coat? And, yes, it does look like an enormous, fluffy tail.

    “Give me back my action figure!!”

    The bright colours look like flame and makes the image difficult to decipher.

    edit: OH..! Old posts have a “humorous” title.. That’s annoying..

  11. Anna T. Says:

    No one’s come to the reason why she’s standing like that – because one of her legs is freakishly longer than the other. “Anatomical Issues” for a tag, anyone?

    Tail? Fin.

  13. B. Chiclitz Says:

    Does that spaceship have lobster claws?

  14. THX 1139 Says:

    “Come down here and get this swan’s head out of my arse!”

  15. Bruce A Munro Says:

    Can’t tell if that’s a big spaceship high up or a small one nearby. It seems to have an odd open to the elements cabin in the front.

    I suppose that badly drawn cloak indicates it’s windy, but the sea looks rather calm for that.

    (Speaking of the sea, she really should seek higher ground. The tides are likely to be huge.)

  16. Tor Mented Says:

    This is why I always try to arrive at least half an hour early at the Hurricane Moon station.

  17. GSS ex-noob Says:

    Improbably Large Moon in orbit. No wonder they have hurricanes. Be lucky if that’s the worst they get.

    That spaceship (?) seems to be assembled from random Transformers toys. Part cat, part lobster, all stupid.

    Yon damsel’s outfit is also a random assemblage. Booties, flesh-colored trou, a one-piece swimsuit, and a white coat with patented Auto-Billow Tail (TM).

    I think all the flotsam and jetsam of the universe (including planets) has ended up here.

    I also think she’s definitely shaking her fist at them what left her there and got gone before the planetary crust began to deform.
