- To judge by this cover, Lords of Atlantis were a short-lived New Wave band who died of ennui.
- "The camera's over here guys ... guys? ... aw fuck it, just take the shot."
- You can tell the dude with the '60s iPod / '80s cell phone attached to the back of his space helmet wrote all their music and is just biding his time until he can go solo / write the score for "Inception 5: The Receptioning."
Best things about this back cover:
- More like "Snores of Atlantis"—this story would be a lot more interesting if Jeannie were in that bottle.
"There's a screen in the Bab El engine room," she exclaimed as she manipulated the visor dials. "I must try to tell Refo that I do forgive him. I'll never sleep again if I don't.""They say this cat Refo is a bad mother... / SHUT YOUR MOUTH! / I'm talkin' 'bout Refo! / NO SERIOUSLY SHUT YOUR MOUTH THAT GUY'S AN IDIOT!"
