Is that black, er, whatever, pointing at the fellow's groin, an actual part of the cover design? Or is it a tear or cut in the cover?


Not a caption: from the light on the top I thought it was a lance and was one of the reasons I chose it--along with all the other delightfully cheesy elements I'm sure folks will "poke" fun at. ;)

And I guess you can see the shadow on the ground underneath, now that I look more carefully. I just couldn't quite believe that the cover artist would be so, well, CHEESY as to put in a black arrow pointing straight at the hero's accoutrements. Heh. Silly me.

Not sure where she was or how she got there, Velma only knew she was a long way from her Las Vegas nightclub. Maybe the cyclone had something to do with it......

It's been five days since we've had a new caption. I'll bump this thread up and give it another 24 hours for any additions. If there's nothing new, I'll set up the poll. Thanks for the contributions, everyone!
