More Crappy Book Covers (Every Other Tuesday)

Hello fellow Book Lovers! It’s Tuesday, and you know what that means! Yes, it’s time for us to take a look at some more crappy book covers. Now, let’s begin!

  • The Duo Time Machine: The Verb by Mery Volmar Bezos Released on November  11th, 2018 Genre: Unknown Synopsis: Some plot with multiple branches of science that’s very hard to explain. 39 Pages 

This cover looks live somebody vomited an entire paint palate onto a sheet of paper. This is why you never mix drugs with designing a cover, you get shit like this! I’m a huge fan of Abstract Art, but this cover looks so pathetically put together, that it makes me rage.

  • The Dragon’s Apprentice by Linda McNabb Released: April 11th, 2012 Genres: Science Fiction and Fantasy 174 Pages Synopsis: Toby goes on an adventure to save his dragon from the villainous Prince Blaise. 

Here we have another instance of a nearly amazing cover ruined by something really stupid. We have an lavish looking palace with brick walls and a nice staircase. Then, we get to the dragon, and this is when it goes downhill. The dragon looks like a plastic toy, and its expression is incredibly dopey.

My Favorite Banned Yu-Gi-Oh! Cards (Every Other Friday)

Hello fellow Duelists! It’s Friday, and you know what that means! Yes, it’s time for another card post! This post covers some of my favorite cards on the Yu-Gi-Oh! ban list.  These cards were put there for being too strong, or having ridiculously overpowered synergies. Now, let’s Duel!

  • Fiber Jar Type: Plant/Flip/Effect Attribute: EARTH 3 Stars Appearance: A really cool jar in the shape of a jungle’s ecosystem. ATK/ 500 DEF/ 500 Effect: FLIP: Each player shuffles all cards from their hand, field, and Graveyard into the Deck, then draws 5 cards.

This card has one of the most broken effects ever printed. It essentially restarts the duel, and gives each player a new hand. You don’t have to tribute anything to summon it, and it completely destroys your opponent’s strategy. This card has been banned for an extremely long time, and I highly doubt it will ever be able to played in the game.

  • Chaos Emperor Dragon- Envoy Of The End Type: Dragon/Effect Attribute: DARK 9 Stars Appearance: One of the coolest looking dragons in all of Yu-Gi-Oh! ATK/ 3000 DEF/ 2500 Effect: Cannot be Normal Summoned/Set. Must first be Special Summoned (from your hand)by banishing 1 LIGHT and 1 DARK monster from you Graveyard. You can pay 1000 Life Points; send all cards in both players’ hands and on the field to the Graveyard, then inflict 300 damage to your opponent for each card sent to the Graveyard by this effect.

The original Yu-Gi-Oh! “Boss Monster”! This card is so overpowered, that I got banned almost immediately after creation. It not only has very high attack, but can nuke the field and hands, dealing astonishing amounts of damage.

Yokai Wednesdays

Konbanwa, everyone! It’s Wednesday, and you know what that means! Yes, it’s time to take a look at some more fascinating yokai. Now, let’s go on a journey to the “Land of the Rising Sun”!

  • Nikusui are extremely dangerous creatures of Japanese mythology. They’re depicted as beautiful women about 18-20 years old. This is just a disguise, however, as they’re vampires that stalk people at night. Upon catching a victim, the yokai will bite it and suck the meat off its bones, leaving only skin and bones behind.

  • Bake icho no sei are very strange creatures of Japanese folklore. They’re the spirits of ginkgo trees, and seem to have an unknown purpose. They have tall, yellow bodies, carry small gongs, and have tattered black kimonos.

More Obscure Comic Book Characters (Every Other Tuesday)

Hello fellow Comic Book Fans! It’s Tuesday, and you know what that means! Yes, it’s time for us to take a look at some more obscure characters. Now, let’s begin!

  • Schizoid Man Real Name: Chip Martin Status: Supervillain First Appeared: Spectacular Spider-Man #36 (November 1st, 1979) Creator: Marvel Powers/Abilities: Mental control and creation of objects and creatures, Telekinesis

Chip discovered his powers at a young age, and unfortunately developed a second personality as well. This other persona was a benevolent force that drove the kid nearly into insanity. His powers were suppressed through medical treatment, and didn’t emerge again until a stressful incident in college. This time, his evil persona took over, and he started to rampage through the campus. He was eventually severely beaten by an unstable Spider-Man.

Crappy Book Covers (Every Other Wednesday)

Hello fellow book lovers! It’s Wednesday, and you know what that means! Yes, it’s time for us to take a look at some more crappy covers. Now, let’s begin!

  • Shock And Awe by James Nowlan Released on October 12th, 2018 Pages: 194 Genres: Mystery and Suspense Synopsis: General Khan must save America from nuclear annihilation.

This cover is so last minute that it’s pathetic! All the artist did was cut and paste a picture of a city on a blue background. There’s also a random nuclear explosion in the middle for no other reason than it looks cool, and it might have to do with the book’s plot.

  • The Power of a Love Song by Laurie Lail Released on June 8th, 2018 Pages: 226  Genre: Romantic Comedy Synopsis: An absolutely crazy Romantic Comedy with many twists and turns.

Most of the art on this cover is absolutely fine, and I really enjoy the space-themed background.Unfortunately, this all goes to shit the second you see that horrible abomination that resembles a completely high dog.
