Society had tamed the erratic fellow by co-opting him into the mainstream. For its largest threats, society reserves success. (Richard Powers, from Three Farmers on Their Way to a Dance)

Giant robot runs wild!  Film at 11! Ride, Brucie, ride! There's more action on the cover than almost the entire book! That cover is just two panels from the book - couldn't they have spruced up the covers a bit? It's Jaime Hernandez!!!!! That cover doesn't make a lot of sense Continuing the grand tradition of cheesecakery!!!! Ka-Blooooey!!!!!! Man, Bisley is wacky! Buckingham is really doing a nice job on these covers Man, those pants are close to going down! You can practically hear the ringing of the hammer on steel! Who is this crazy snake bitch?!?!?!?!

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!

(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!!!!!
