SteveAsat Comments: I can overlook an Apple II case with a Commodore PET monitor being used to visually indicate “hey kids, computers!” And the Escheresque architecture suggesting a suburban three-bedroom rendered in granite. But how the hell did that cat get up there and why isn’t he sliding off?!

Ah the 'Napoleon + Space = Awesome' equation!Click for full image

April’s Art Direction: So there’s this cosmic checkerboard, right? And on it we’ll have Alexander the Great, a Samurai, and Napoleon just kind of chilling out, each in their own separate square, completely unaware of anything around them.Now we just sit back and wait for the money to roll in.

Sorry... you eat me after sex?Click for full image

Kevin’s Art Direction: Don’t put a red flame ANYWHERE on the coverthat’s too obvious! Instead, put Grizzly Adams into a jumpsuit and have him talking earnestly to a lizard man who’s walking a giant stag beetle through an alien city. Insert sexual tension by hiding the human’s left hand behind the lizard man’s buttocks. Also, hide both bipeds’ right feet from view so people will focus on the fact that the beetle is practically floating.

Many thanks to Kevin!
