Good Show Sir Comments: Two-fer Tuesday? Sounds like another great Bibliomancer idea. So here are two covers he sent in years ago that I never got around to posting.

You might remember this from here.

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!

Good Show Sir Comments: Not sure what makes me more curious: Hawkman… or the incredibly stoned Mickey Mouse.

Scott B’s Art Direction: I know the cover is late, so just give me whatever clip art you have lying around that looks vaguely science-fictional. Guy In Huge Metallic Helmet, brilliant. Old-Timey Person In Armor, Old-Timey Person With Gun, sure, great. Wait, underwear-clad wrestlers, really? You know I’ve warned you about that more than once. Well, I guess we don’t have time to redo it…
