    Seattle’s on fire! Behind you!

    Why is he cuddling his own snots?

    OK, who forgot to earth the microphone?

  6. Tom Hering Says:

    Behind you! A column of black smoke with glowing red eyes! Above you! Linked wedding rings! Not sure which is scarier. Don’t worry though. If you squint, the eyes disappear, and the wedding rings become Mickey Mouse ears. (Once you see it.)

  7. Tom Noir Says:

    Dressed in black, vaguely goth, holding a sword… looks like your typical Seattle-ite.

    Public service announcement: this is what happens when you plug your European hair iron into a US electrical outlet.

    I believe there are enough floating umlauts in the bottom portion of the cover to umlautitize every letter of the title.

  10. Bibliomancer Says:

    Egad! That knight looks like he is choking an electric chicken.

  11. Jaouad Says:

    Those ümläüts look as if they’re straight out of a Miyazaki movie.

    When I look at that dark cloud, for some reason the song “Smoke Gets In Your Eyes” keeps playing in my mind.

  13. Rags Says:

    His lips are so puckered, i think his head will implode soon.

    Hey! My home town! So why is he standing in the middle of the water?

  16. SI Says:

    Not one holy grail joke?

    I can’t be bothered either!

  17. B. Chiclitz Says:

    The title was supposed to be A Knight of the Sword but the artist only gave him the hilt (probably wasn’t getting paid enough to do a whole sword) so the title had to be cut down too, so that the cover made sense.

  18. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    With the knights out, is it less dangerous?

  19. JJYoyo Says:

    When he looks in the mirror, this is what Tommy Wiseau sees.
