Also, shouldn’t she be already dead without her helmet? Cullen Waters Wow. So much to mentally digest. Captain “Science” seems to be on the same level as “Brain” Boy when it comes to intellect. Of all the places to shoot a skeleton, you pick the chest? Seriously? Not, say, the hand holding the chain or the skull? Cap, that dude doesn’t have any internal organs. Your ray gun is going to do squat. Speaking of the skeleton, what exactly is his (?) intentions once he gets Mary Goodnight there back to his coffin? I also love that smug look he gives “Science”, too. He’d know where to shoot someone made of bone, by God. I like the very clean dagger stuck in the skeleton’s rib cage. Is that wot killed him or does he carry his weapons there in lieu of a belt to hang the blade on? Then there’s the title. “Hangman’s Son”? That’s more appropriate for a Horror story than a Science Fiction one. And outside the iron collar around Goodnight’s neck, it has no connection to the rest of the image. Don’t get me wrong. It’s a neat cover. I’m thinking about using it as wall paper. It’s just a wee bit goofy. bgbear_rnh Captain Science would by pushing Global Warming on CNN talk shows today. Beckoning Chasm Maybe captain Science is aiming at the dagger. It’s like “From Hell it Came.” Flangepart Science vs. supernatural, by the look of it. Yeesh. Pretty weak beam ya got there, BTW Capt. Wade Harrell So…some kinda of outer space dungeon I guess? bgbear_rnh The hangman’s son got a lot of teasing in school until “the best career day ever”. Eric Hinkle Is that skeleton dragging her off into a coffin? Maybe they were engaged, and she knifed him before the wedding? Have to wonder what Captain Science has to do with it all, though.
