Good Show Sir’s Art Direction: Helicopter, desert… naked women floating in the air being hit by a beam of energy. Sorry? That’s actually in the book? Well, there’s a turn of luck!

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!

    “GO DINC, GO! I really hope Dinc is able to pull this one off …”

    “What did I forget again? Clothes, yeah, but something else… para… parasol?”

    Little know fact: South of the Mexican border the author went by the handle “El Chalker” and did enormous amounts of peyote while he waited for inspiration for his next cover.

    Naked and levitating, yet her foot still looks as if it’s wearing high heels. And there’s a force-field around the city to protect it from the overpowering orange-and-teal.

  6. Bibliomancer Says:

    Are hands really that difficult to draw? Unknown Artist can’t even draw boobs. Seriously, I think the sheep could have taken the day off here.

    G.O.D. Inc.?

    Must be Nathan Brazil’s firm.

  8. FeáröfMûsïc Says:

    She’s awfully well lit for a ‘shadow dancer’. But then again, that doesn’t exactly look like dancing that she’s doing either.

  9. Rachel J Says:

    @Fear. She’s probably casting a really cool shadow on ground – it’s just the title’s in the way.

    I’ve been waiting for GODINC. 😀

    Notice how the uppermost levels of colour are distorted around the naked lady. It looks like the space laser is setting fire to the top of the atmosphere. Or else, the sunrise has a spike to it.

    Now I finally know what ‘Land of a Thousand Dances’ looks like.

    Naked on horseback through the streets of Coventry just doesn’t cut it anymore.

    ‘Cause she’s a star
    One that everybody knows
    Finished with the striptease shows
    Now she can’t afford her clothes

    Her long blonde hair
    Lyin’ on the barber’s floor
    Doesn’t need it long anymore
    Lady GODINC NO.2

    “And I’m floating without a tin can…”

  15. Larry Dixon Says:

    You think this is amazing, you should have seen the trampoline cropped out at the bottom.

  16. Larry Dixon Says:

    Also I believe that helicopter was caught en route to the WRITTEN IN TIME cover, where it appeared later that night.

    Crossovers can happen at any time, anywhere.

  17. B. Chiclitz Says:

    Now I’ll just grab these—rings—here, you know, the ones from my previous book? And voila! see how they pass effortlessly along her body, proving there are no wires!

    Of course, if she had a respectable pair, I’d need a bigger ring.

  19. Herm Says:

    OK, I give up: what’s the “once you see it” tag for? Is it the fact that this was apparently on a shelf of children’s books?

  20. Don Hilliard Says:

    Herm@19 – I think it’s intended as “once you see it, you can never unsee it.” (This one’s a mild case.)

  21. anon Says:

    Fitting cover art for “The Shadow Dancers”: No dancers and not much in the way of shadows either.

    @GSS Those sheep really over-sell the chest department in this picture.

  22. Anna T. Says:

    She’s flying upside down, or she’s imitating the constellation Cassiopeia.

    It’s a toss-up, really.

  23. Tom Noir Says:

    SPOILER ALERT: In this volume, our heroine is incinerated by an ion cannon.
