Brian Comments: While I haven’t bothered to read this book, I can only assume we’re in for a lively tale.
Published 1993

Many thanks to Brian!

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: 8.48 out of 10)

    [Goofy voice]: Huh-hey! It’s Cooky Cat and his pal Johnny Blaster!

    My favorite character so far is the big monster with tear drops for pupils and either two sets of nostrils or a very smart mustache.

  3. SI Says:

    I like to think its the most awesome crime fighting duo ever!

    Kid with gun: Say “hello” to my little friend!
    Onlooker: Awe, hello cute little blue cat…
    Kid with gun: I meant the gun!

    Gun dude could be accused of ‘bad touching’ where Schnarf is concerned.

    Brother to Shadows. Furry in Closet.

    @SophaLoaf, If they mated: E.T. & Jabba the Hutt

  9. Adam Roberts Says:

    Something about this photo makes me think the book is three yards long by two wide.

  10. Tommi Says:

    Is that a Rubik’s Cube in the hands of Mr. Four-Nostrils?

  11. Vic Says:

    That is the most “sisterly” brother to ANYTHING I’ve seen in a while.

  12. Mark V Thomas Says:

    Re: Tommi’s last comment
    It looks more like the Lament Configuration puzzlebox from the Hellraiser series of movies, to me, than a Rubik’s Cube…
    If this is the case however, than can Pinhead & Co., be that far behind…?

  13. Brendan Podger Says:

    Does the gun guy only have four fingers on his right hand?

  14. ahem Says:

    Oh.. There are *three* shooters!
    I did wonder why the yellow shooter had huge breasts.

  15. Ray P Says:

    A blatant steal of Ripley and Jones the cat from Alien(s).

  16. Adzel Says:

    “Stay back or The Lorax gets it.”

  17. B. Chiclitz Says:

    @Brendan Podger—I don’t think we want to know where gun guy’s missing finger is, though the little blue guy’s expression might be a hint.

  18. SI Says:

    I don’t know whats going on with the back of that cat… or possibly the guy left his suit tail open… but that alien cow thing looks very disturbed.

  19. fred Says:

    With that hair, his head looks like it would be a much more comfortable place to sit.
    Nice subtle Wilford Brimley tribute GSS.

  20. Bruce A Munro Says:

    Blue and orange theme today. Shooting folks continue to shoot at whoever has caught them in an orange spotlight, while big alien seems to be melting into the sunset.Said big alien seems to have the tiniest little forearms for his bulk. Really quite fascinated with the new local-craftsman designed lamp it no doubt will hang up in its Olde Tea Shoppe.

    Is it just me, or was “tough young dude/dudette with adorable animal companion” something of an SF cover cliche for a while?

  21. Bruce A Munro Says:

    Is there something wrong with the “Recent Post Comments” display? It’s showing posts which haven’t been commented on in months.

  22. GSS ex-noob Says:

    “Shadows” is right. I can barely see part of the title and whatever it and they are in the background. It looks like:



    (blobby clouds of color that make the art look really unbalanced)
    (more blobs)

    (pretty boy with gun and blue cat/Lorax critter)

    I give it a hearty “meh”.

    @Bruce: You’re right. Widget gone mad from the heat maybe?

  23. THX 1139 Says:

    Keith Harris means business!

  24. Verylatetotheparty Says:

    @Bruce & GSSxn: So now there’s a Flashback Comments section.

    Is it just Technical Difficulties again, or is there a problem with the spacetime continuum that can be used to communicate with 2019 and warn everybody? – Will anyone believe us?

  25. Longtime_Lurker Says:

    Now December 2106, A couple more days and it will get back to before there was a Good Show Sir, and the space-time continuum will implode …

  26. THX 1139 Says:

    At least it’s a reminder of posters past, like “You have been watching” at the end of Dad’s Army.

  27. B. Chiclitz Says:

    I think all of the “Recent Post Comments” are showing up on Chinese GSS. It might be a message from Q.

  28. Verylatetotheparty Says:

    @LL: Do you mean Dec 2016, or do you really mean 2106 and things are getting even stranger?

    @BC: Chinese GSS does have that ‘Wanted, someone to go back in time with me’ ad, maybe they succeeded – with a few side effects.

  29. Tor Mented Says:

    This is odd. I was going to post a time-travel joke, but none of you liked it.

  30. Tor Mented Says:

    You take the blue furry, the story ends. You wake up in your bed and believe that Dead Stuff With Big Teeth is still posting.

  31. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @Tor: GSS! (I miss him)

    Someone must have “Sound of Thundered” the widget on their travels, since now nothing at all is showing up there.

  32. THX 1139 Says:

    We’re still here! Ah-hahahahahahaaa! We’re ALIVE!!!

    I thought it was time for “The Cult Post” for sure.

  33. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @THX: Don’t laugh too soon. What if it’s a black hole and next it takes out “Recent Comments”, the tag cloud, etc. and then it’s our turn for spaghettification?

    This is 2020. Anything can happen.

    If you had “fire tornadoes” on your 2020 Apocalypse bingo card, check it off. US National Weather Service reported a wildfire-created tornado today and there’s video.

    Firenado. Can Sharknado be far behind?

  34. Bruce A Munro Says:

    @GSS ex-noob: exciting new weather forecast symbols we’ll be seeing

  35. Longtime_Lurker Says:

    vlttp: nope, 2016 (as it was when I posted that comment). It was back to 2015 earlier this morning. Now I see it’s gone completely.

  36. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @Bruce: I’d expect to see Death Valley having Raining Lava since today they recorded the highest measured-to-modern-standards temperature.

    Ever. Anywhere on Earth.

    (I love his cartoons.)

  37. Tor Mented Says:

    @GSSxn, 31. Yes, I was fortunate to join this site while he was still posting for a while.

  38. GSS ex-noob Says:

    Speaking of shadows, the highlighting on the group who’s shooting is damn weird. At first it seems fine, on the edges closest to whatever it is they’re shooting at… until you notice the extra swoosh of yellow cutting across the middle gunman’s hip and crotch.

    WTF is that?
