I ponder... can rooster bears breathe in space? Nope...Click for full image

Scott B’s Art Direction: We don’t want anyone to confuse this with the film “Labyrinth” which has just recently been released, so put something on there that nobody will mix up with that. Ah, how about a rooster-bear pondering deep thoughts? That’s the stuff.
Published 1989

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: 8.85 out of 10)

    Is he a rooster-bear? Is he a punk-prairie-dog? What is he thinking about? And how did he get so buff?

    Maybe that’s why it’s called The Questioner Trilogy…

  2. Pat Says:

    It is a chicken Kiev.

    “Hmm… is The Bear Necessities too obvious for my ringtone, or do I need to go more punk?”

    Someone told him that stripping to the waist and putting his chin in his hand on his photo for the dating website would make him look ‘deep’ and obscure his double-chin. Someone else told him the surgically-implanted plastic Mohican was a good look for a bear. The fate of worlds is determined by a very gullible bear-man.

    i’m more worried that he seems to be pointing to his furry bear crotch

  6. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    Goodness! Look at those shiners. ‘What do you say to a bear with two black eyes? Stay out of my honey, for the third time!’

  7. Phil Says:

    This must be the new, CGI-rich, big budget, Hollywood re-imagining of… Bungle from RAINBOW.

  8. L.B. Says:

    @towrope Maybe he’s envious of David Bowie’s package and calling attention to his own.

  9. FearofMusic Says:

    @Ewan: Prairie dog or bear? Good question. Regardless, that is one MASSIVE head. As wide as his body. And that left crotchward indicator arm seems a bit gimpy and underdeveloped. I don’t think he can reach the top of his swollen noggin with it. And that mohawk…is that hair or a roosters comb type of membrane? It is the perfect illustration for a book in The Questioner series indeed.

  10. Jaouad Says:

    “Now where did I leave my comb?”

  11. Rags Says:

    I am feeling an itch down below…….urge to scratch rising, rising…

  12. Yoss Says:

    Is it just me, or did the artist use that trick where the eyes appear to follow you around the room?

    “Stop looking at me, rooster bear man!!!” is a phrase no person should ever feel the need to speak.

  13. Tat Wood Says:

    @deadstuff: the person to be wary of is whoever gave a bear two black eyes.

  14. David Cowie Says:

    It’s a hairy man wearing a fake bear head.

    OK, who wants to make a gay “bear” joke?

  15. fred Says:

    But a horror to a human may be ecstasy to an alien, like tastey human meets hungry epicurean alien. I believe this question has just occured to roobear and is pondering the inherent stupidity of his mission as a keeper of the peace.

    As everyone seems to find Roosterbearman so very unimpressive, it’s no wonder the poor fellow lost his job to the Galaxy’s most fabulous cat-person:

    @L.B.: with the title of Labyrinth my mind went first to David Bowie as well.

    You remind me of the bear.
    What bear?
    The bear with the mohawk.
    What mohawk?

  19. Adam Roberts Says:

    Never mind how buff he is; I’m impressed by the way he’s balancing an entire PLANET on his head …

  20. Anti-Sceptic Says:

    @Yoss, I think you are wrong…that is clearly a Bear Man Rooster, not a Rooster Bear Man as you have suggested.

    I don’t know how some people get these distorted thoughts in their head….*humph*

  21. Yoss Says:

    I’m just working from Griffon’s Book of Chimerical Taxonomy, 3rd edition. Has it been updated already?

  22. Anti-Sceptic Says:

    You mean you didn’t get the memo?

  23. Yoss Says:

    I may have. Could be I thought it was another of their Mystery Meat Cookbook offers and put it straight into the recycling.

  24. Anti-Sceptic Says:

    I don’t throw those away…The Mystery Meat Cook books offer great debates such as whether or not the platypus would look better if it had an elephant’s trunk instead of that funny looking duck bill.

  25. JuanPaul Says:

    I’ve never seen a manbearrooster in the flesh, but I’m pretty sure those proportions are off.

  26. A.R.Yngve Says:

    “What came first… the chicken or the bear…? Hmm… Perhaps I was made to answer that question…”

  27. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    No wonder that the Paddington film was in development for so long…

  28. Tat Wood Says:

    The ursine Rachel Dolezal considers whether her attempt to pass as a chicken might have been rumbled.

  29. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @Tat: The National Association for the Advancement of Chicken and Poultry will not be amused.

  30. Tat Wood Says:

    @Dead Stuff: Stuff ’em.
