Not the best of the otherwise outstanding Shape series but it’s hard to complain much about any cover that combines a submachine gun-wielding Handmaiden with Napoleon in a white suit. Mr. McGinnis was feeling his oats that day and decided to eschew his usual leggy, sartorially deprived lady for an exquisitely detailed Mayan god. “It’s art!” he argued, but of course, the publisher made him add the two figures because who would but the book otherwise?

This cover was used for the 8th, 9th, and 10th printings, which ran from 1974 to 1975.
