Don Comments: It’s so embarrassing when Mummy catches you playing dress-up in her things, even if you’re an alligator. Maybe PARTICULARLY if you’re an alligator.

Ruby’s Art Direction: I want a truly horrifying banshee creature… no wait – Give me the world’s gayest red rubber man, complete with rubbery genital mound and screaming nipples, then have him vomit himself into creation. Oh, and add in a small red haired child looking confused.

Stevyn Comments: I’m ashamed to say that I was the artist in this case. A terrible cover for what is possibly the worst fantasy book ever written.

And with such great lines in this book such as, ‘The effeminate albino pursed his thick lips in that certain way to suggest he was male, but homosexual.’

Billy Awesome Comments: Pull out all the stops.  I want the head of Sturgeon as a devil, floating on an asteroid made partially of humanoid hands and torsos, and partially of a futuristic city that looks like a garbage truck, his hair a naked lady with a peacock feather magic aura, his brow haloed by dollar store xmas tinsel.  I want a topless mermaid riding a unicorn over a chain that secures nothing.  I want an astronaut trying to take a smoke break through his bubble helmet, and a nude baby on a floating cockle shell awestruck by the majesty of it all.  Don’t let me down.  Let’s make some magic!

Art Direction: Nothing attracts readers more than nipples! It’s a proven trend that equals one thing, money! That is unless you draw huge nipples, a huge red women with an insane sparkling mouth wearing sunglasses and a guy running from a giant pinball. Hey! Are you listening?
