The Queer Machine

The Queer Machine

Sometimes, it's like shooting fish in a barrel.

The guy in the long-sleeve tee is Cotton Carver, "Defender of Barlunda", a planet where, despite their snappy red tunics and white strap-harnesses, they still need a virile earthman to fend off every little would-be conquerer and tornado tyrant. Yet another Flash Gordon clone, circa 1941. Strange, how common those are.

Cotton, being a Real Man, has no idea what the Queer Machine is for. However, Princess Deela (Cotton, of course, is "dating" the girl whose dad runs the place) seems enthusiatically, almost disturbingly familiar with its function, perhaps from a time predating Cotton's arrival.

Meanwhile, an uncomfortable-looking Nardak, the local toady, tries to blend in the background and pleads the fifth....

Here's the deal: Nardak has one of the weirder fetishes out there (clue: his favorite film is "Tetsuo the Iron Man") and the chrome phallus of the Queer Machine put him in one hell of a sexual pickle. If only those other two people weren't there! The poor dope tried so hard to repress his burgeoning boner that his genitalia has actually imploded, leaving a disturbing X-shaped crease in the crotch of his pants.

"Queer Machine." Heh.
