    Nasty nips. No wonder he feels so blue.

    The full canvas reveals this to be an undoubted WTF.

  2. THX 1138 Says:

    Looking at the full canvas, I think that lobster’s wanted on the telephone.

  3. A.R.Yngve Says:

    Is the Lobster singing “Up There” from the SOUTH PARK movie?

    Cover blurb:

    “He was a lobster who dared to dream!”

  5. Phil Says:

    Watch out, lobster: behind you!

  6. Claire Says:

    No one warned him that homefaring could lead to crabs (yes I know it’s a lobster but that isn’t as smutty)

  7. SI Says:

    Sorry to point this out. But the mouth of that lobster is clearly balls.

    It’s like a car crash… I can’t stop staring…

    ‘Once I went fishing and caught a naked man and he was THIS BIG! …’

  9. Phil Says:

    I just read a plot summary of this book, and it now seems a very reasonable visual interpretation. The blue man is a time traveller. The lobster is what the future holds. Sort of. You have been warned!

    Well, lobster, red moon, blue hunk statue, gigantic waves, hairy stones… but the Shai-Hulud does not live in the sea. We can’t have that on the cover! No, it’s not the lipstick, the lipstick’s fine.

    Wow, could they have picked a harder to read color for the title font??

    Need an alternative to Censorship Sheep?

    Why not Zoidberg?

    New from 20th Century Prawn: Planet of the Crabs, starring Crustacean Heston:

    “You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!”

  16. A.R.Yngve Says:

    So much for pathos!

  17. Green Says:

    Alessandra, <3!

  18. Shannon Says:

    Is it just me, or does the red moon look sad?

  19. David Cowie Says:

    It’s the heroic crustacean from the back of LYON’S PRIDE again!

  20. Anti-Sceptic Says:

    Lobster: Stellaaaaaaa!

  21. Rags Says:

    Nipple twist incoming!!!

  22. Tom Noir Says:

    The moral of this book is that one shouldn’t be crabby and shellfish.

  23. Anna T. Says:

    I think this needs a “Font Problems” tag.

    And blue guy looks like a statue. That the lobster is worshipping. *raised eyebrow*
