Notice the tatteredness of the paperback. Thats from extreme reading. Which is why I now invest in hardback lol

::replaces the 580 KB png with a 34 KB jpg and walks off muttering about people never compressing their own images::

That cover was drawn by Thomas Canty, by the way.

You just gotta wonder what the artist was thinking when he drew that...

Intresting, i never noticed that but i was more intrested in what was inside than the illistrations on the covers.

Element Man, the pistol is on his belt. :)

This is a good example as to why you should not use hallucinatory drugs while drawing.
Seriously, that is the weirdest version of Gabool I've ever seen. He has crocodile teeth!

By the way, Lady Beezle? You sig rocks. Muchly.

You must be joking, or completely blind.

Either way:

It's too bad that the second picture doesn't show up, because I'm completely blind, too. I don't see the pistol...

something must be wrong with the forums.

Theres the second picture. Look at that one, than look at the big one. Or more specifically, look at Gabool(the big rat in the picture)'s belt.

ITS A HUGE GUN. It's right in your face. I dont see how you can miss it, it pops off the cover. This is ridiculous, and when you spot it I hope you feel very stupid.

Yeah, I thought that the thing protruding form his belt was a bone of some kind, based on the bottom of it. I just managed to notice the handle of the gun.

Of course, I'm farsighted.

I saw that, and thought that it had to be the pistol, but couldn't imagine for the life of me why a pistol would look like a bone. I guess the handle blended in....

I was staring at that "bone" for so long, trying to find the handle. *chuckles* I finally did.

a bone with a handle and a trigger? The thing at the end is the sight of the pistol.

The beard is the bushy thing sticking out front. The snaggly white things are his teeth. I can see them.

Is that your book TBT? Or did you just find that at some library or in a freinds bookcase? Or better yet, at a garage sale?
