Joachim Comments: “Devil dude,” said the blonde-headed potbellied forest spirit,”I’m not into your steroid enhanced red muscles with sheathing belly skin around the bottom look.”
Published 1995

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: 7.88 out of 10)

    “Let’s re-use that thing from “The Fetch,” only this time it’s smelling its own B.O.”

    Man, Tim Curry’s really let himself go.

    Come on, VOGUE!
    Let your demon move to the music…

  4. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    Is Devil Dude passing gas? That would explain a lot of things about the cover, the low-lying fog only the first…

  5. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    Fair is fair, tho, I can read the title and the author’s name quite clearly.

    That red dude’s head looks a bit like the Grinch…

    I wonder what the Devil’s Armpit smells like InsertDundeeCardiff/SwanseaPortsmouth/Southampton joke here

    Daemon monkey chiropractors don’t seem to have worked wonders on his back.

  13. Jerk of all Trades Says:

    DevilGuy has got some seriously saggy man-boobs. Also he is probably in constant pain.

  14. Jerk of all Trades Says:

    No, I’d like to change my conclusion. What’s really going on is everything form the pits up has come undone and is sliding backwards.

  15. Claire Says:

    I’m just going to say it one more time! Your arse looks fine in that, can we just go out now?

  16. Ian Says:

    Oh I like this cover art better…

    “Out of their minds” indeed!

  17. Lilah Says:

    I like how the potbellied demon appears to be looking coyly over its shoulder at us.

  18. Ken Finlayson Says:

    The artist is Philippe Caza. Noosfere has a gallery of his covers, but be advised – the Space Sheep would disapprove of quite a few.

  19. Anti-Sceptic Says:

    I actually really like this artist. I guess, since I’m a bit of a comic book fan, his art reminds of the days when I’d rush out to the comic book store to get the latest X-Men comic and see all the other books and their artwork…ah those were the days…

  20. Anti-Sceptic Says:

    Monkey-Goat-Man: So, who are you supposed to be?

    *Flamenco music playing in the background*

    Red-Devil-Guy: My name is….Rico….Rico Suave!

    Tag Wizard: Please please please! A new tag! Help me escape this weird pecs obsession. I’m hiding in a back room from the shame of it all.

    But really, that demon, if he don’t fit the bill…well, then again.

    Oh God, I really need to get some sleep.

  22. The Tag Wizard Says:

    Rest well my friend! For the sake of our sanity (and retinas) why don’t we call this one “weird belly”?

  23. Lee M Says:

    Oh, come on, it’s French. Since when have French book covers ever had anything to do with the story?

  24. Stevie T Says:

    I think this is the poster child for the “interpretive dance” tag!

  25. fred Says:

    To hell with Spielberg doing ‘West Side Story’ I want Del Toro.

  26. Tat Wood Says:

    Which one’s Damon Albarn?

    Hellboy actor progression:

    Ron Perlman

    David Harbor

    Kevin James

    27. Juanpaul:

    I think it’s Hellboy played by Iggy Pop.

  29. Bruce A Munro Says:

    I have in fact danced with the Devil in the pale Moonlight, and let me tell you, it’s not a very pleasant experience.

  30. Bruce A Munro Says:

    The American Daw cover isn’t very flattering to the devil, either:

  31. GSS ex-noob Says:

    Everything worthwhile’s been said, so I second the GSS to L.B.
