Badger Books are the bomb! Stinkbomb. We’ve gotten a number of Badger covers over the years, most of which have sat unused (mainly because Tag Wizard couldn’t meet the high bar we set for alt-text humour). So we figured if we piled enough Badger Books into one heap they would reach critical mass and burst into flames, solving our problem.

So let’s have a go at our first Badger Books Megapost. Today’s theme is

Damsels in Distress,

or, Badger those Babes!

or, BEHIND YOU! RUN!

She'd run faster but her skirt won't allow itThe Girl From Tomorrow

Hey that's the number plate of my car!U.F.O. 517

I've got more pulsating cells to show youNight of the Black Horror

I hate these new dance club spotlightsMind Force

Good Show Sir Comments:

1. “I come from the future to … rock your world!”

2. Whence did they come? Thence must we run! Hence.

3. “Get away from me, Nerd!”

4. This is where you’d expect to find Bow-tie Man!

Thanks to Marvin and Roger T. for sending these bad boys in.

RachelJ Art Direction: “This is no ordinary novel. Not even a “A Novel”. This is… “A MOSAIC”. I want every element of the cover– title, subtitle, font, artwork– to blend harmoniously into one vast, resounding “WTF”.

Do it justice, my boy.”

[Note: It’s not my camera. The cover image is just really, really dark and murky and it’s hard to tell what anything is.]
