Shoo! Shoo! We're trying to have an evil picnic here!Click for full MORALLY CORRUPTIBLE image

Cedric Comments: Note the strange animal at the front, confused about whether it should be a polar bear, an unicorn or some kind of big eagle. Or maybe a big confused cat, judging by the claws? And of course you can find a lightly clad lady in the back, requested by the marketing department to boost sales.

Scott’s Art Direction: So there’s this rocket, that’s also a dude with an afro, taking off through a thundercloud that’s coming out of a water faucet, and the cloud’s holding some sort of city or something. Just trust me.

Adam Comments: The men being attacked by the sinister tentacle are not, in fact, wearing white leotards. They are covered in a fine white-haired pelt. I’m not sure who in the chain of events leading to the publishing of this book was taking copious amounts of drugs.

Dorian’s Art Direction: What do you mean, there are no scantily clad women in the story? No werewolf? No heaps of treasure? No weird monster consisting entirely of teeth and wings? Ah, who cares? No-one ever looks at these things anyway.
