Piper’s Art Direction: What do you mean a naked Terminator woman won’t do? Fine, add another woman in the background curled up in a ball and she HAS to be naked too. That, a broken egg and some kitchen tiles and I think we’re done here.

    Unleash the Susanne Sully-Bot 2000!

    Oh, and that prude C.S. Lewis is so censorious that he’s blocking the uncensored image as well.

    I presume the girl in the corner is in the naughty corner for breaking the Panorama Egg from a couple of days ago.

    @THX 1138 – Thanks for pointing that out, fixed! But now we know you are one of the naughty ones! 😛

    Okay, a story with this title cannot be that exciting. I mean, it’s about Squares. Pfui! 🙂

    But if these are the *squares* of the city, just think what the groovy hepcats must be like!

    Yeah, these ladies aren’t that square. I can see some of their grooves.

    Mr. Lewis doesn’t like circles.

    So I assume this book is Sarah Jessica Parker career retrospective.

    Don’t remember much of this one, except that (iirc) it’s mostly political satire. The artist took the ‘squares’ quite literally, I see. Certainly no naked ladies that I remember.

  13. B. Chiclitz Says:

    If these are the Squares of the city, what do the Hipsters of the city look like?

    Back cover quote:
    “We dare you to read the pulse-pounding ‘sulking naked on the kitchen floor’ chapter!”

    As I recall, this was about a giant chess game. If the artist misheard ‘pawn’…
