    Great use of the wraparound artwork concept. And good to see Roddy McDowall putting in an appearance, albeit without his Cornelius/Caesar/Galen costume.

    And at last, a phonetic Jorj. None of your “George” nonsense.

  2. Phil Says:

    Bonus points for being topical. Today is the Spring equinox!

    So the events depicted above could happen any time after today…

  3. Bibliomancer Says:

    Wait. I’m confused. This happened 11,000 years before today. But today is the equinox. So how is this Sometime After the Equinox? I think I need a solstice.

  4. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    What is that man doing to that cigar box? And the ape looks rather aroused by the sight…

  5. THX 1138 Says:

    And they said Zardoz chic wouldn’t catch on! Needs a Zapata moustache, though.

  6. FeárofMüsic Says:

    Is that an emaciated woman? Causetthose erect nipples are freaking creepy otherwise.

    I always knew tin cookie boxes could transport us through time, i freakin knew it!!!

  8. Rags Says:

    Lance Uppercut was in for a surprise when he opened up King Chimalpopoca’s “Box of Protection” and discovered a hoard of unused condoms (trojan brand).

    Seeing as how there were no human females about (just ape things) the horror was only then starting to hit home.

    @THX: According to the blurb he’s 12 years old, so the Connery porn-tache is in the future he’s fighting to preserve.

  11. fred Says:

    What I can read of the back cover sounds like the plot for an unmade Sid and Marty Krofft 70’s kids show.

  12. Bibliomancer Says:

    Our hero on the back cover has just discovered that a Mystical Evil Shaman make an excellent ham-radio antenna.

    And is a “Nightmare Epic” some kind of genre within the “Tower Sword and Sorcery Series.”

  13. Tom Noir Says:

    What exactly is the other end of that cable plugged into??

  14. SI Says:

    That’s the kinda of look a man gets when he looks inside his lunch box he forgot about for months.

  15. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    Concept drawing from The Fly III: where a little boy playing dress-up and a Holocaust survivor end up in the machine together.

  16. Tat Wood Says:

    At the risk of annoying Bibliomancer, is ‘Jorj Bent’ futuristic space-spelling for ‘Gordon Bennett’?

  17. B. Chiclitz Says:

    Most ridiculous blade-to-hilt ratio I’ve ever seen on a sword.

    Love the expression on the X-Box operator’s face—”Nyaa-aah!” Zoom in for full effect.

  18. rev Says:

    The only member of the Village People to turn up for the reunion concert.
    YMCA wasn’t quite the same.

  19. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    Everyone but Mr. Teasley looks so grumpy! The chap, the floating heads, the apes, even.

  20. Jeff Vader Says:

    Be the envy of your friends, neighbors and local ape population!
    Buy your remote controlled native american NOW!!

    (batteries not included, do not use in conjunction with equinoxes)

  21. Scott B Says:

    Looks like the long-lost first concept art for the SNL “D*** in a Box” sketch.

  22. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    Jorj has no fans. 🙁

  23. anon Says:

    @Scott B, @Tom Noir: Now that’s what I call a mindfuck!

  24. Anna T. Says:

    Shaman over there looks rather emaciated. Magic must eat up your body fat. Especially if you’re powering someone’s time machine for them.
