Over here in the Capitalist West they called it Post-Modernism, sold it in the fanciest of downtown NY galleries, and claimed it represented the underlying despair of a spiritual mankind beyond redemption in a functional world.

Admitedly, i'd just call it Dude with a prick for a nose.

Its a design classic!

Look at those contextual fonts, you've got a Commie font, a mutie font, and a 1950's Space font. Awesome. Even where it says "Supercharger" at the bottom left..

I'm blown away by this. :-)

Is it me or did people actually colour their covers with felt pens?

That frantic one does look like some kid has coloured it in himself. I'd be proud of my kid if he drew that. It's a work of art.

I actually think the Communist Mutants from Space is a good box cover. Weird, but good for the reasons Angus pointed out above.

But the only reason I am making this post is because I was just ROFL by the "me and my phobia" cover! Classic!! That deserves to be (in)famous.
