Good Show Sir’s Art Direction: Look all I want is a bald man with a robot heart… a comical cartoon heart! Cause that’s just what crazy futuristic electronic LSD taking engineers would do. The back? People put stuff on the back of these things? Standard woman… and we’re done!

Sir, this was left in the childrens section again... it's scarying the kids...Click for full image

Good Show Sir’s Art Direction: Stuck for something to draw eh? All one has to do is follow the editors rhyme, “Golden chair on which a hunk may sit, dinosaur.” Yeah… it’s not much of a rhyme really. But here’s the twist: it’s in space!

Good Show Sir’s Art Direction: When bikers talk to each other they usually never take off their helmets right? Well have one on there twiddling his thumbs like he’s trying to borrow 20p to buy some sweets at the school tuck-shop!

Here we are again! It’s been a while for the old honourable mentions but it’s come to that time of year when a can of irn-bru and chocolate is considered an acceptable breakfast!

So if you are having a weekend off I hope you enjoy it and if not… well enjoy these covers that don’t quite make our high standards but we think deserve a special mention.

Have fun!

Good Show Sir Comments: I love Mark Hamill’s pose on this one. It’s got that, “Why are you drawing me?” Look.

Stripey Baz Comments: I’m no purveyor of romance novels or indeed Norwegian literature, but I’m pretty sure that it’s not a good thing to have a mutton-chopped blaggard slap a fair maiden across her face. Given the angle that he’s standing at, his body must have twisted like one of those plastic toy action figures…

Rachel J’s Art Direction: All right, this cover practically designs itself. Think “teleportation”, “futuristic detectives” and “shapeshifting alien saboteurs hiding out on the Moon”. I’ll leave the details up to you…
