“Am I ever going to be told what you really think you’re doing?”

“You have been told.”

“Lie upon lie.”

“Perhaps that’s our way of telling the truth.” But then, as if she knew she had smiled once too often, she looked down and added quickly, “Maurice once said to me – when I had just asked him a question rather like yours – he said, ‘An answer is always a form of death.’ ” (John Fowles, from The Magus)

So many faces! I don't know how Stephanie is doing that, but man! that's a cool cover! It's all sharp points! Look - it's a random cover! Jihad Jones will take you out, man! Oh noes!  My cover is smudged! Let's pick on hipsters! That's not good for anyone! Just a flesh wound! Yay!  Incest! Oh no you dint! Boy, that's exciting! So much kookiness! Strike a pose! There's no rain in this comic! Won't all that blood gunk up the gun? Blasting your way this April! So many elements! Oh, man, I'm not touching this sucker!

She told him about God, who resembled her strongly, an amiable, loving and sad person given to losing things, and dropping things. He it was, struggling to hold aloft so much, that fumbled and let fall their mother from out his tender embrace. (John Banville, from Doctor Copernicus)

This cover is a LOT more exciting than the interior! I hate to say this, but this is a terrible cover, although Gleason's signature is placed nicely Why are robots always grumpy? J. H. Williams III can pretty much do no wrong! Gosh, I wonder Not a hoax!  Not an imaginary issue! Not a hoax!  Not an imaginary issue! This issue would be a lot better if Lee Moyer painted it! That cover is totally creeping me out, man! Yay!  She gets a name! Man, that cover is awesome! Mullet alert! That's just good advice for any situation Gene Ha phones in another cover I like how they both have shit-eating grins It's a good thing she's not naked, brother!

She didn’t realize that it was in the blood and not on the skin; she didn’t see that there could be nothing more suburban than suburbanites repudiating themselves. (Hanif Kureishi, from The Buddha of Suburbia)

I don't know what those things on the sides of her legs are, but I wish they'd tell us! The name of this issue is NOT 'Time's Up'! I don't know what those letters next to the creators' names are The cover is the best thing about this issue! Why so many versions of Ozma? Such an unimportant part of the issue is depicted on this cover! I wish I could blow smoke like that! Don't taunt us with a Bradstreet cover! Spooooooky! I need me to get a tattoo on the back of my hand so I can freak people out! I love this cover! So, yeah, Dustin Nguyen is pretty good Hyperion looks really odd on that cover Let's give it another try! Who doesn't love the bleak stuff?

If miracles have been so rare since the appearance of Christianity, the blame rests not on Christianity but on Christians. (Mircea Eliade, from The Myth of the Eternal Return)

It's all emotional and shit! He's a manly man! That shore is purty! Three-Deeee! That can't be pleasant 'Why am I wearing this ridiculous outfit?!?!?!?' he screams If only Superboy had looked at the cover of his own comic! Does Thor look like he's in the mood to be dogpiled? All superheroes should wear ties! Too much Bat-grooviness! Gulacy gets to draw nekkid wimmins!

“Bonding is like the romance in an Arnold Schwarzeneggar movie.”

If it happens along the way, fine.”

But it ain’t the reason you go there.” (Bruce Feirstein, from Real Men Don’t Bond)

How does he see? Who's supposed to be shooting at him? Well, that would look weird in World War II So ...much ...coolness! ATTACK!!!!! Run, you running people, run like the wind! I've always wanted to walk casually away from an explosion More ...coolness! Yeah, I don't like the title either So much hair! She's all mysterious! Frank Quitely, gettin' paid!

Our nation has grown by its need for the unnecessary — another name for human progress. (Daniel Boorstin, from Cleopatra’s Nose)

Ryan Sook makes everything better! Estrogina and the Zamoran pirates need to get an ongoing title NOW! Naked chicks and giant robots! Did they honestly think it could be an ongoing? Naked chicks and giant Vikings! I couldn't resist! CBR reviews get quoted on the front of Marvel books, but God forbid they quote me! Yet another cool cover! It's all true! That dude needs to chillax! I hope there's bloodshed and ugly-bumpin' in this book! Yay!  More dinosaurs! Dang, this looks awesome! It's all European and shit! So much funny!

“They were lovers of peace,” Gaudior replied shortly. “Your planet does not deal gently with lovers of peace.” (Madeleine L’Engle, from A Swiftly Tilting Planet)

Oh, G-Mozz ... I want so much to love your Batman work! That blood is really going to mess up that puzzle! Ten for ten in great covers! Why can't they just get along? She must have had butt implants or something! Well, this is a misleading cover! I love this series more each issue! Sigh - this has been fun It's a MANLY hug! It's all fun and game until ... well, you know I sure hope there's violence and nudity in this! Who names their kid 'Shadrach'?  I mean, really?

“Keep away, keep away,” Hungry Joe screamed. “I said keep away, keep away, you goddam stinking lousy son of a bitch.”

“At least we found out what he dreams about,” Dunbar observed wryly. “He dreams about goddam stinking lousy sons of bitches.” (Joseph Heller, from Catch-22)

Arrrgghhh!  Tentacle rape!!!!! Sweet Jeebus, these covers are extraordinary! The cover artist gets third billing! Will I piss off Brian Wood again???? Don't point, man, throw!

I have always pitied poor Abraham. Here he had the sword from his sheath, only seconds away from slitting his son’s throat, and he had to sacrific a ram in his son’s place. What a disappointment it must have been. What a damn tragedy. (Jeremy Leven, from Creator)

This cover feels all Seventies, man! Are they tiptoeing so they don't wake the students up? 'Why are the readers so dim?!?!?!?!' Considering all that happens in this comic, this cover could have been a lot cooler As neat as this cover is, the variant is wicked awesome! I like the way the bullet is spraying numbers out of the dude's skull Sigh.  Yet another tremendous cover in this series! Monthly?  Um, yeah, maybe not This just proves it: Chicks shouldn't make comics, man! Ken Hale sez: Even though I'm a gorilla, you still wish you wuz me! Yet more propaganda! Things get worse.  I know, shocking. This is monster huge, man! More Darwyn Cooke goodness! You know, you don't have enough gore in your lives! More comics goodness than you deserve! In case you're wondering, yes, J. Bone is awesome I love this uncluttered cover Who drinks pink tea? I don't even have to read this to know it's awesome! Damned landscape printing!

That woman was the closest thing to himself Achilles had ever come across. But he didn’t find out until a moment after he had killed her. She was hostile, and dead: everything Achilles loved in a woman. (Roberto Calasso, from The Marriage of Cadmus and Harmony)

How does he pee? That's not a great cover, but it's a pretty neat drawing! He just read his own comic, and that's what happened to him! That table is only forty bucks at Cost Plus! You're in trouble when the palm trees start staring at you On the plus side, he's a hit at raves! McKeever writes his dates the cool way! That Darwyn Cooke - he has a future in this biz, I think They look like they're about to tango! Goin' crazy gives a man a powerful hunger! Man, I love this issue Ain't nothin' more American than shootin' guns at a football game! Now I have a hankering for some soul sushi I don't think J. Bone is capable of doing a bad cover Why, everyone loves the Tommy Taylor books! It's all ...... giant-sized!!!!! He won an award that begins with an 'X'!  That means it HAS to be good! I'm dying to read this!

You go all your life thinking of your parents as these crushing protective monsters with infinite power over you, and then there’s a day when you turn round, catching them unexpectedly, and they’re just weak, nervous people trying to get by with each other. (Hanif Kureishi, from The Buddha of Suburbia)

Bruce Wayne angry!  Grrr!!!!! Hi-YAAAA! Hey ladies in the place I'm callin' out to ya! So many great covers in this series! The covers of this story arc are SPOOKY!!!!! There's a distressing lack of gunplay in this issue! Okay, I've never seen Tora with long hair.  Never ever ever.  Why does she have long hair on this cover? What a fine way to die! I don't hate this Humberto Ramos cover! So much detail! Man, I did NOT see that coming! Sinkiewiczey! Templar-iffic!
