Watch out human girl! For years I have been trained to rip that cat suit... in all the right places!!Click for full image

Good Show Sir’s Art Direction: This… defies convention my friend. That damsel’s clothes aren’t even ripped or even showing any impressive cleavage! But not to worry, we can save this… just wait till you see the font I picked out. No one will notice your partially shaved alien bear sharp toothed no horned minotaur monster… I think…
Published 1994

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: 6.35 out of 10)

    Is that Harry Dresden fighting a space monster?

    Also… how more blue can that cat suit be? The answer is no more… no more blue…

    The perspective’s all wonky. If they were all at the same distance from the viewer, and if Disco Queen stood upright, she’d be the tallest, then the bloke from the Sisters of Mercy and last a teeny tiny Aggedor.

    Bloostone, the lady who shot the letter D and forever wore azure hues…

  5. Muttley Says:

    Light sabre? Call that a light sabre?
    (bear produces Darth Maul’s)
    Now THIS is a light sabre . .

    Also, why is the guy at the back who’s presumably loaded for bear just standing there? Oh, dramatic tension? Ed Wood’s just about to shout “cut”!

    Mine! Or I will help you not!

    She’s so… sensibly attired. I’m flabbergasted!!

    Someone seems to have found an extra tube of blue in the dustbin behind the arts shop. “Free paint! What to do…I know! A lady in blue. Fighting a blue monster on blue ground! Why, I can even..what? There’s none left in the tube? Drat!”

  9. Jaouad Says:

    Blue and orange.

    You can’t get Blood from a Stone. Ironically, though, you CAN get a Gem from a Mell. Mell’s are famous for carrying all manner of gems around with them, which they will happily hand out, upon request.

    There is only one Bloodstone and this shite isn’t it. This looks like a rejected cover for one of Stephen King’s ‘Dark Tower’ books.

    What future U.S. presidential elections will actually look like.

  14. hobbit Says:

    great book and it looks like the artist might have had someone who read it explain the plot to him

  15. anon Says:

    That’s a pretty wide stance.

  16. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @AR: how right you were…

  17. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    Ever since this cover was posted, I’ve mentally swapped ‘Blue’ for ‘Blood’, and it’s increased my enjoyment of blood covers to no end. ‘Bluesport’, ‘Dr. Bluemoney’, etc.

  18. A.R.Yngve Says:

    More skiffy ought to have “Blood” in the title.


  19. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @ARY: Or combine the two.


    (A heroic fantasy with a prince as lead, natch.)

    As regards this one, is Lady Blue, the ineffectual guy in back, or the beast Jon Shannow? Do any of them deserve to have a series?
