Does Episode 193 violate branding? (The corporate weenies, here, would say so).
Font size off but, worse, it's missing the distinctive Drabblecast tentacle (size, orientation) in the lower-left.
How are we supposed to tell this episode from the Heavenly Sweetness Podcast?!

Technical DQ?

Whilst I have to go with #193, #188 is a very very close second. It captured the heart of the story so well.

#188. It effectively converts the entire story into a symbol, which is what a great illustration should do. All of these look awesome, but, in addition to looking awesome, #188 actually tells the story.

I may not know art, but I know what I like, and that's all of 'em. But I'm voting for Primary Pollinator.

Has to be Primary Pollinator.
They are all brilliant but I loved the attitude in his face.

I don't get it. It's the exact same expression on Mongoose's face. ...   Exact same. :)

It's tough. They're all great. But just for the "cool factor" of bizarre alien life forms I have to go with Mongoose

This decision wasn't so easy as the feature story vote. I gave it to Store of the Worlds by a hair, was considering Mongoose.

I totally agree. The Mongoose cover is alright, but I have a feeling that it's getting a significant boost from the fact that people like the story so much. #188 is extremely well drawn and also has a far more effective allusion to the story itself.

Adam Doyle's "Scales" is haunting and awesome. They're all great, but I think that his piece is just amazing.
