Definitely one of the best chapter titles in the Victorian serial.

Grant McCormick (grantcmccormick) says:

Every time I see that picture of Victorian Helen, she reminds me more and more of Amelia Peabody.

Leon Arnott (l) says: Query: not once were you tempted to modify this opening page? Even something so simple as moving the text to the left and the illustration to the right?
Shaenon Garrity (shaenongarrity) says:

I'm a lazy, lazy cartoonist. I did draw another possible cover image once, but I didn't like it.
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

Do not burn?

Adam Underfoot (unnatural20) says:

To CD.

Richard Dodson (radicallymoderate) says:

Those poor Victorians were in such a conundrum! On one hand, they were morally bound to protect society from the corrupting influence of penny dreadfuls, piano limbs, and women's ankles (pardon the vulgarity). Yet, wouldn't he to inspected potentially objectionable content be in danger of its corrupting influence and thence be persuaded to pass that objectionable content on to people and places where it could cause futher corruption?

How nice of the author to state on the cover that there is no objectionable content and that contrarily it was suitable for the edification of children. Censorship is so much easier when you can judge a book by its cover. MUCH more efficient.
