Title: The Joy Boys
Author: Walt Grove
Cover artist: Mitchell Hooks!
Yours for: $9
Best things about this cover:
- "'I Dream of Jeannie?' Fuck that. Jeannie dreams of me!"
- I submit to you that this woman would look much better if that horse's tail were removed from the back of her head.
- That spider has six legs. Is that guy's squadron called "The Mighty Ticks?"
- "The Joy Boys" ... does not evoke aviation. It evokes something slightly more tawdry—like GLORY HOLE meets RENT BOY.
Best things about this back cover:
- Walt Grove, doing his best Mickey Spillane imitation. Tough sell.
- Seriously? "The Joy Boys" is the successor to "DOWN!?" Who knew the world of aviation had such a strong undercurrent of fellatio?
He wished he would stop thinking about that, but he had been around and he knew.
Looks like he's been behind the barn.
