Stainless Steel Art (21)

by

These are the covers from the Polish editions of The Stainless Steel Rat and The Stainless Steel Rat Saves the World, published by Wydawnictwo Poznanskie in 1990 and 1991 respectively.

[Update 24th April: Thanks to Conrad Cronos for the missing artist credits]

I’m not sure about the first cover – I like the image, but he looks a little muscle-bound to be the Rat. The second one is much closer – Jim has his cigar, an interesting looking gun and a pretty groovy helmet.

    I think you’re being too diplomatic Paul — that first cover is dreadful. I can imagine Harry’s face when he sees the SSRat portrayed as a futuristic Rambo. Bloody awful!

    Yeah, the first one is more of what I imagine a pulp-y Brion Brandd would look like…not our Jimmy at all.
