Anders Art Direction: A pack of profoundly stoned giant proboscis monkeys in a garden! Nails in his nostrils! Both of them! Wha’? The cover? Knights and princesses and shit. You know, the usual.

    I suspect the line “a giant fetish monkey brandished his didgeridoo menacingly” must appear somewhere in the book, as that’s clearly what inspired the artist.

    They seem to be comparing sticks. The large ewok wins.

    Looks like the artist really likes Ronia the Robber’s Daughter…
    The giant creature reminds me of the creatures in that film.

    Which of the people on the cover are ‘wizardborn’?

    My money is on the armored unicorn.

    If some human tried to make me wear that barding then, virgin or not, I’d impale him faster than he could say “my, I love what you’ve done with your beard”.

    It’s a massive clarinet. Good Show Sir is having a Jazz-themed week.

    “Man…those ‘shrooms are really kickin’ in…I see knights and unicorns….whoa….”

    The giant is trying to keep a straight face before asking his Questions Three. Without giggling. He can’t do it.

    “Sir, can I interest you in one of these fine, hand-crafted rainsticks?”

    ‘Mr. Savile, you’re not welcome round here anymore.’

    Q: Why did the knight adorn his steed with curtains?
    A: When the steed tried to run away from a call to arms, the knight concluded that his steed was sensitive to the draft.
