    “When time’s vault opens … yada yada yada …”

    And with those final words the sad Senior Blurb Writer walked out the door of Ace Books, never to be seen again.

  2. Tag Wizard Says:

    I heard that was the Senior Blurb Writer on the front cover there, locked in a mortal duel with the Senior Art Director.

  3. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    ‘Urine! My one weakness! Curse you, Steve Greenjeans!’

  4. THX 1138 Says:

    And that’s what happens if you feed Critters after midnight.

  5. Bibliomancer Says:

    “Dinosaurs riding spaceships … Squids wrestling nudes …Cat People for christ’s sake! And you are complaining about your job?” snarled the Senior Art Director at the Senior Blurb Writer. He poured himself another three fingers of whiskey.

  6. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    I do believe the cover gives away the plot, such as it is.

  7. rev Says:

    The Senior Art Director was reluctant to promote intergalactic graffiti.
    He simply wanted the critter on a chair, eating a chicken leg.

  8. Bibliomancer Says:

    Nemesis from Terra … Cycle of Terror … Terror from Terra … Cycle of Nemesis.
    The Senior Book Title Editor spun the Book Title Generator Wheel one last time:
    Tarra Khash: Hrossak!
    He open the window and slowly crawled out on the ledge.

  9. L.B. Says:

    The Senior Art Director pulled the Book Title Editor from the ledge and said, “Get hold of yerself, man! Come and work at MAD Magazines with me!”

  10. rev Says:

    “Say, what have you got there Tim?”
    “Oh, Hi Wilson. Its my new raygun. Souped it up a bit. Heheheheh”

  11. Tom Noir Says:

    Sure, jackhammer hands LOOK intimidating, but you try eating soup or signing a check with them.

  12. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    When the Terror-beast was able to wax off all of his unsightly body hair, he and Captain Greenjeans began a much more…sordid…relationship!

  13. Rags Says:

    “Dont forget to get my armpits puny human, i have intergalactic filth up the wazoo……ahhh yes that hits the spot.”

  14. A.R.Yngve Says:

    “Hey, Earthling! Have you seen my Cycle of Nemesis? I parked it over here six thousand years ago…”

  15. Rags Says:

    “Oh its good to be awake after 6000 years. Let me just stretch these jackhammer beauties held on by the latest alien technology (rich Corinthian leather straps) and get to killing the human race.

    Hmm, perhaps i should upgrade my tech, i mean its been 6000 years and………….AGGGGHH, the pain…the pain………..”

    (Jackhammer alien drops dead)

    Cletus: “that ill learn ya, friggin bug”

    Cletus puts his can of “Raid 6000 – kills alien bugs dead” away and throws the big ugly alien into the back of his pickup space ship (complete with Dixie flag).

    Cletus touches his communicator thingy and says “Hey Brandine, wees eatin gud tonight!!!!”

    When time’s vault opens….Hulk Hogan gets his ass ‘assaulted’ by The Yeti.

  17. A.R.Yngve Says:

    That monster escaped from Super Mario Galaxy 2, World 4, Boss Level.

  18. HappyBookwyrm Says:

    When time’s vault opens…
    …We get sci-fi paperbacks from the mid-to-late sixties!

    I must say that the creature looks very lively and menacing given the fact that more than half of it has just been ray-gunned into golden bubbles. Or maybe…it’s coming through a golden bubble time rift and that ray gun is totally ineffective…
    I think too much.

  19. rev Says:

    I think its just about to go boingaboingaboingaBOING!!! on its pogo hands and cartwheel off into the distance, grumbling softly to itself in pidgin wookie.

  20. B. Chiclitz Says:

    If the five “average humans” happen to be four men and one woman, the wikipedia “plot summary” blithely spoils the ending.

    Those leather straps are just completely wtf. Who buckles him up?

  21. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    What’s the background? A vindalooed chicken?

  22. Stevie T Says:

    For some reason, the Jackhammer Yeti reminds me of Aku from “Samurai Jack”…
