The Hobbit - Is this the worst cover art ever?

I bought "The Hobbit" Graphic Novel from a seller in America and was sent this instead.
I got a refund and they told me to keep the book.
I'm really not surprised.
Russell Grant Yesterday
Bilbo looks like Russell Grant.
And Gollum, my god the artist has made no effort there, looks like a bloke in a cheap mask.
The text inside is the original, but I couldn't go through the book picturing the two characters like that.
Notice at the top it tells us that this is "The Authorized Edition" - I presume it tells us that so we don't assume, from the artwork, that this is a cheap knock off.

This picture is NOT canon.

Doctor Who and the Bat!

Doctor Who has probably met a bat.
But is this canon?
This Doctor seems somewhat lazy in his thinking and explanation.
"Bats fly at night by using some kind of "radar"".
I'd want more from the cleverest man in the universe than that.

Doctor Who and the Flying Squirrel!

Definitely Canon
He probably has met a flying squirrel.
Whether he was floating (in a style much akin to the Phantom Zone) in the night next to it is less certain.

Brilliant Mash-ups 2 - Batman Versus Jack the Ripper in Victorian Gotham

Soooo good.
Batman is relocated to Victorian Gotham without explanation.
No time travel.
The whole story, origin, everything is moved.
Fantastic and the artwork is beautiful.
Buy it here.
Did I say that the great Robert Bloch wrote the introduction?
