HAAHAHAH FOOLS! Laser beats spears! Owned!Click for full image

Art shouldn’t be confined to one side of a book, so span it across front AND back! And I am talking full-on epic here. Guy carried by a lizard horse dragon thing, shoots his laser at… wait for it….. dwarfs with spears riding on the backs of kangaroos! It will be a Sci-Fi craze! I’m sure it will just be as popular as man-tigers… Ahahahaha……………..

Thanks again to Chris R! You’re a legend!

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: 8.88 out of 10)

    Is it just me.. or does this kinda look like one of those books that has been sitting in your English class at school, since the dawn of time?

    I’m sure I have a copy of Beowulf I took from school that is by the same artist. Will have to look it out. Could just be of the times though.

    It does rather look like it’s been drawn by a particularly imaginative 7 year old. I just love the spurting kangaroo blood though.

  3. CSA Says:

    cool space rocket. the detail is incredible.

    I think the artist asked himself one question, and that is: what is the most famous artistic depiction of a battle?
    To which he answered: The Bayeaux Tapestry

    so hes tried to do The Bayeaux Tapestry but with lizards, dwarfs, and lasers. Good show sir!

    I am enjoying the juxtapostition of the fortress on the small hill and the space rocket.

    Is there a proper name for a lizard crossed with centaur?

    Though if I were that space dude, I’d be worrying about being carried by something that looks at kangaroo blood with such enjoyment…

    I’ve just realised, the dwarfs with spears appear so be some kind of mouse or other small brown rodent with pointy ears. Its kind of cute really.

    I agree, the spaceship is nice. A good classic spaceship shape, very pleasing.

    Space Don Quixote!

  7. Chris Says:

    It really does look like it’s been drawn by a child, especially because it appears to have been coloured in by felt pen. The drawing of the spaceship is particularly poor.

    That character on the cover: we’ve seen him more recently. It’s a kif! I always knew Panther employed time-travelling plagiarists as cover artists.

    Lizard Horse: I think it would be much more practical if you rode into battle on my back. Don’t you?
    Man (pouting): No! Carry me like a baby or I won’t go at all! (Starts to hold breath and stamp feet)
    Lizard Horse: (sighs) Alright alright…

    “Falkayn hell!” – the kangaroo’s last words.

  11. Perry Armstrong Says:

    I love the way space dude’s clothing is colour-coordinated with his ship – Stylish!

    Panther’s bold attempt to capture the Australian SF market was decades ahead of its time.

    The blue dragon centaur in the van Rijn trade co. stories is a philosophical sort with a Buddhist outlook. He also likes money and plays poker with David. OH and there is a lady cat person too, unhappily absent from this cover. She really likes money.
