God.. one of my stakes is completely poking me in the joybox!Click for full image

Remember how sweet Blade was? With all his black clothes, long trench coat, his cool body armour, his array of silver stakes and the mean emotionless yet cheerly philosophical face? Better make him caucasian just to be on the safe side.

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: 7.65 out of 10)

    It’s like The Crow except with an Owl.

    Does anyone remember those pewter owl sculptures you could get mail order, with small metal nameplates inscribed with things like “Magick” and “Conjorour” on the front?

  2. SI Says:

    Can’t say that I do… Do you have a google image to back up your memory? 😉

  3. JustinLeego Says:

    Imagine this!!

    except about 50% bigger IRL than the image height, and made out of a rocky, black substance (clearly not pewter :rolleyes:) which may or may not chip away under pressure. Oh, and add a tuft of fake grass, maybe a couple of glazed sea-shells, and a name plate on the base.


  4. CSA Says: ??

    no magjickc plate though, and the cheap rocky black substance is Resin. All the best/highest quality fantasy figurines are made from it. (even 6ft tall wizards|66%3A2|65%3A12|39%3A1|240%3A1318|301%3A1|293%3A1|294%3A50#ebayphotohosting )

    Btw does Hollywood really have that many seach lights? I supose they’re looking for that flying dude and his owl, i hope they find him soon…

    Mother of Mercy…. that life sized merlin is AWESOME!

    I kinda want one for my front room… looking over the city with an ever watchful eye.

    And now I know where all this owl talk is coming from. I only just saw that on the top of the book. 😉

    So THIS is what happens to Harry Potter when he grows up and takes a job with William Morris Endeavor! No wonder everyone’s signing with CAA now…

    I’ve seen this guy! He’s apparently homeless now. I saw him sitting on a filthy duffel on Sepulveda Blvd in Van Nuys California. The knives were plastic, but the stench was nearly lethal.

    When they puked up Battleship: The Movie, it was the last straw. He swore to make Hollywood bleed…

    I’ll bet Wesley Snipes sighs more than Susan.

    “The time, the place and the…” pig?

  10. Tor Mented Says:

    Why is there so little suspense in this cover?
    Because the stakes aren’t very high.

  11. fred Says:

    Reading the blurb I’m assuming this is about a dating service for certain types of fetishists.

  12. Tat Wood Says:

    This is what Jeremy Hunt thinks people think of him.

  13. Francis Boyle Says:

    Judging by the way his coat seems to be wanting to leave his body I have to conclude that he’s just ripped an enormous one. I’m also assuming that in this universe vampires have no sense of smell.

  14. Bruce A Munro Says:

    An excellent specimen of Extruded Vampire Fantasy Product cover. Needs to be about 50% sexier, though.

    Is this the Enforcer, or the guy who is going to take out the Enforcer? If he’s a Blade-type fearless vampire vampire Slayer, presumably he hunts vampires rather than organizing hunts _by_ vampires.

    Besides the coat, what’s happening with his pants? One trouser leg seems vastly larger than the other. Is he supposed to be taking a bold stride forward at the same time he is dropping downwards like the Cinder Block of Justice?

    @THX1139: The time, the place, and the…pony? The Ping!

    GSS, @Tor Mented.

  15. B. Chiclitz Says:

    When the blood fever rises, it is the Enforcer who names the time, the place, and the Owl who will poop on his head.

  16. GSS ex-noob Says:

    Why are there giant spotlights atop Mt. Lee? And what happened to the antenna tower? Judging by the color of the sky, it’s wildfire season, so nobody ought to be up there.

    But, I dunno, the basin may have inexplicably and in all defiance of the laws of geology become lava, which I’d say is a bad time and place to do anything.

    Has anyone considered that Mr. Generic Honky Blade Ripoff might be keeping himself aloft through magick farts, billowing out his cloak to act as a parachute so he doesn’t pancake onto the 101.

    @Tor: GSS.

  17. Bruce A Munro Says:

    @Francis Boyle: actually, vampires have a very keen sense of smell, which is one of the reasons they don’t like garlic. The clever vampire slayer will therefore load up on beans and cabbage as ammunition before embarking on a vampire hunt.

  18. Francis Boyle Says:


    I’d like to see that movie. Pity Mel Brooks is probably too old to make it.

  19. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @Bruce: but then the vampires would smell him coming from farther away.

    @FB: I bet Mel’s still up to making a short in the form of a trailer.
