Hilarious! Looks like Odd John's gaze could burn through that unlucky lass' skin.

I hear that Passion Sauce works really well on peaches, and, to a lesser extent, ice cream.

on the other hand... gross.

"On a world older that time, built upon dope and vice...", that reminds me of growing up in Florida. Strange place.

Bubs said...

Oh yeah...those vintage paperbacks give me a special feeling

Love the guy in the first cover being womanhandled by those 3 amazons.

Odd John looks monstrous! I love the way that the woman's modesty is covered by those bits of wood.

I heard a restaurant got sued because disgruntled cooks were adding passion sauce to everything in the kitchen.

But that may've been an urban legend.

Also: I love the title 'Odd John'. He's not Psycho John or Seriously Unhinged John, he's just Odd. I can just picture the dialogue now:

"Who's that over there?"
"That? Oh, that's John."
"What's wrong with him?"
"With John? Oh...he's just...he's just odd."
"Odd John? I see."

Adam-
She better put some SPF 50 on!

Imaginary-
It also makes a fabulious silver polish!

Kerplech-
Yeah...icky...

Bradda-
Hmmm remind me never to visit Florida again :)

Bubs-
I bet there's an afterschool special to help you with that...

PJ-
I know! He looks so freaked out!

And as for the naughty bits covered by wood I think that's maybe a bit or a pictorial euphimism.

Mob-
There was a local urban legend where I grew up that someone had walked in and seen a Little Caesars employee adding his passion sauce to the dough. Not sure I ate there after hearing that story.

Imaginary-
LOL!!!

Ha! These are great! You have to be careful, though. (You might get space cooties!)

That Sin in Space cover art just screams "early 1960s," with the Mercury/Gemini-helmeted astronaut and the girl who looks like an Ann-Margret clone.
