Queen vs. Queens! The Cherry Checkmate of San Francisco!

What happens?
The threat: Queen Cherry.
The scene: San Francisco.
The appetizer: Rocketboy Chutney Surprise - or at least that's what will be left of him if Queen Cherry has her way!

When the shirtless (but still scary!) Galaxy Guards scout out Robby's whereabouts near the Golden Gate Bridge, Queen Cherry launches a full-scale attack on the city by the bay. With the swift speed of a Chinatown dry cleaning service, Rocketboy springs into action to save his adopted city from his mother's wrath.

But when a can of pork and beans falls on Rocketboy's head and knocks him out, the citizens of San Francisco rise up to the challenge and face Queen Cherry head on. The future of humanity now lies in the hands of the city's drag queens, steroid junkies, and knocked-up mistresses of the political left!

Inspiration For The Cover
There is something beautifully mean about Queen Cherry. She's like Darth Vadar with boobs. Michael pushed the envelope of his artistic reach with this salute to the grand covers of Heavy Metal and other sensually-charged magazine covers of the 70's and 80's.

The Lady Gaga Coffee Makers

What happens?
The coffee shop industry is in crisis! Desperate to increase in-store sales, Starbucks installs a line of life-size Lady Gaga Coffee Makers.

But when out-of-work actress-turned-assistant manager Margot Kidder accidentally dumps her leftover lasagna into the machines instead of coffee, the Lady Gaga Droids malfunction and start scalping business executives up and down Madison Avenue!

Without fresh coffee to wake up the branches of the military, the First Lady calls on Rocketboy to stop the Lady Gaga Droids. With only Tony Danza to help him, Robby heads for New York City to save the coffee-drinking public from this demonic force…before it’s too late!

Inspiration for the Cover
There is nothing better than a backview of Rocketboy. And not just for perverted reasons! His jetpack is one of the coolest features of his costume, and this finally gave us the chance to showcase this marvelous accessory. And we also get to see his ass.

What Happens?
The Showgirls of Las Vegas keep a closely guarded secret among their pasty-clad ranks – the hidden location of Cinderella’s glass slippers! Crushed and transformed into go-go boots of gold, legend has it that their wearer will be given the gift of immortal beauty.

When a Flamingo Showgirl Reject blabs about the shoes whereabouts to Queen Cherry in exchange for a ham sandwich, the evil empress and her shirtless Galaxy Guards tear apart Sin City searching for the magic boots! With the city in crisis, Rocketboy cancels his eyebrow waxing appointment and takes off for Las Vegas to find the shoes before she does.

But it’s going to take more than a simple game of fetch for Rocketboy and Queen Cherry to claim the boots on their own. The International Council of Strippers and Massage Therapists challenge the mother and son to a dancing duel.

Whoever shakes their booty the best will be awarded the go-go boots…while the loser will have to marry Las Vegas comedian and steroid-head Carrot Top!

The Inspiration for the Cover
Only the poster for the Cher/Christina movie BURLESQUE could conjure up such a fabulous cover...and the most convoluted story to go with it!!!

Beware...The Night of the Pussyman!

What happens?
Who is that stalking the night? Sneaking through the alleyways? Snooping inside bank vaults? (And stealing Rocketboy’s underwear?!?) No, it’s not Tina Yothers… It’s the Pussyman!

Robby’s ex-boyfriend Klytus Katskill is in town – and he’s more obsessed with the retail clerk/go-go boy/mesh underwear model than ever before. When Robby rejects his engagement at a pajama party fundraiser for homeless game show hosts, Klytus tries to kill himself with an overdose of Meow Mix. But instead of committing suicide, Klytus will soon be planning a massive genocide as he is reborn into an unleashed force of terror!

Faster than you can say “Someone Change The Kitty Litter!” - the Pussyman is born. He gives Rocketboy two choices: either love him…or die!!!

Inspiration for the Cover
The Cheetah is one of the best villains - and most underused ones in terms of her pure potential of greatness - to ever face Wonder Woman. While there have been many incarnations of her (including the current version which looks like Hello Kitty on steroids) our heart belongs to the Super Friends version. Here's to you, Pussyman! We'll leave some cream out on the porch for you.

It's Okay! Rocketboy is Here!

What Happens?
The city of San Francisco is shrinking - and it's going to take more than a bottle of Viagra to make it big again!

When a flying vat of pimple-fighting cream accidentally explodes over the Golden Gate Bridge, it starts a chain-reaction of size-reducing proportions as the city's buildings, citizens, and pets become smaller...and smaller...and even smaller!

With San Francisco's defensive security force out-of-town at a meatloaf convention, it's up to Rocketboy and the SFPD Stripper Cop Division to stop the disaster before it's too late!

Inspiration for the Cover
A homage to the most amazing Power Girl cover ever...which was itself a homage to a Superman cover...which most likely was a homage to young, virile men ripping their shirts off in public at community picnics and business meetings in the 1940s.

Rocket Tyler Moore

What Happens?
Talk about a bad hair day! The country's leading hair gel has been switched with a serum that brainwashes metro-sexuals into killer-sexuals! Disguising himself as a contestant in the Mr. Minneapolis Hair Show pageant, it's up to Robby to find the killer, save the hair salon, and win the crown...all before bedtime!

Inspiration for the Cover
Besides the fact that Rocketboy is CATCHING Mary Tyler Moore's hat, there is also so much pure joy and fun in it. This was Michael's salute to Adam Hughes and his magical art.

Mommie Dearest 2: Queen Cherry

What Happens?
Rocketboy only fears three things: bad haircuts, pussycats, and his mother: Queen Cherry.

Empress of the faraway planet Allura, she was made queen of the galaxy on one condition: that she could provide the king a son. Giving birth to Robby, Queen Cherry promptly murdered the King and claimed the crown as her own.

Fearful that Robby would one day overthrow her kingdom, she set out to kill her baby boy as well - but the infant was rocketed to Earth by his nanny, raised by the Amish in Nebraska, and ran away to San Francisco to fulfill his destiny as a go-go boy, retail clerk, and superhero!

The Essay Contest: Win A Rehab of Your Choice. Such a ridiculous contest. I'm surprised it's not real.

Inspriration Behind The Cover
Batman had a fantastic villian named Magpie. This is our big, wet, French kiss to her.
