Let’s start off Friday with some cover images

I don’t think that stuff is good to drink. Art is uncredited.

Joe Kubert cover for the story of a WW II Navy officer who grew up as a feral child raised by pterodactyls. And how often does one get to say that?

Next, a couple by Powers

OMG, it’s a man with an icecream on his head! Horrifying! Luckily for the artist, the art is uncredited.

Mitchell Hooks did this one. I saw the woman’s meant-to-be-ecstatic face on lots of covers back in the day.

An eerie one by Kelly Freas.

Covers

CC Beall. I’ve no idea what the story is, but I’d have picked that off the newsstand back in the day

A cover by the great Virgil Finlay.

One with uncredited art.

And one from Tom Kidd with a bit of whimsy.

The next one’s by Saunders. Citadel of Fear is a great read, by the way.

Cover art Wednesday

“Improbable, yes! Interesting, very!” What a good tagline.

I think she’s supposed to be sexy but the eyes make her look like a pod person.

One by John Schoenherr

A thriller cover by Peter Stevens. Black Mask was the a-list for mystery fiction back in the 1930s.

It’s not selling sex and sin, it’s in the Bible!

And VIncent di Fate’s wrap around cover for the first Riverworld book. A nice job capturing the disparate elements of the series.

The calm before the storm

Though as Hurricane Florence is heading significantly south of us, the storm shouldn’t be too bad. Still, here are some appropriate comics covers.

First, by Carmine Infantino

Then Victor IbaƱez

One by Ernie Chan

A really good one by Pat Broderick

Gil Kane shows the worst-case scenario.

And Neal Adams riffs off an old Magritte painting

A couple of non-specfic covers

Here’s one about lust

And who knew women in 0ld Russia showed this much skin?

Murder, of course, makes a great, eye-catching cover hook.

And who could resist a cover with that line (“a tropical garden full of deadly snakes.”)

Let’s science! SF covers and science links

Images and links have no relation to each other, in case you were wondering.

(Art by Schinella)

A prominent lab generated multiple research studies whose conclusions (kids will eat fruit if you just put a sticker of Elmo on it!) went viral. It appears they got the results by fudging data a lot.

The Stanford prison experiment showed that people given the power to abuse others will use it. Except it doesn’t hold up.

Companies are embedding microchips in employees. With their consent, so far anyway.

(Earl Bergey)

How much does culture affect psychology?

(Uncredited)

Private space launches are now competing for aerospace with plane flights.

Meet the tardigrates, Earth’s most indestructible animal.

(Powers)

Lots of information now lies in programs so old they’re no longer readable, or on CD-Roms. Researchers hope to develop a universal virtual computer that can read them.

Rich people’s interest in the future of technology? Surviving while the world dies.
