The Hardy Boys Alternate Cover Art Game
« on: October 04, 2013, 02:50:25 PM »
So I like to look through the "Images" result on http://www.google.com every so often. (Or on http://www.yahoo.com or http://www.dogpile.com, etc. Whichever search engine you want to use.) Anyway, I sometimes find some interesting things that way. And I had an idea for a fun Internet image search game. I thought it might be fun to find images that could be an alternate cover art for The Hardy Boys books. For example, I typed in "Dead on Target" (note that it is in quotation marks) and looked through the Images that Google.com brought up. And I thought this one was kinda neat (apparently, it's from a movie of the same name.) So there's something for Dead on Target, #1 in The Hardy Boys Casefiles series.


I thought it might be fun for everyone to take turns on searching for such images to use for all the rest of The Hardy Boys Casefiles titles. (Perhaps after those, other Hardy Boys series could be done. But the Casefiles seemed like they might be easier to find images for rather than all "The Mystery Of" constructs from the originals- but we can try those at some point too.)
The only thing is to try to find another image that has the same phrase on it as the book title and then post it here. So if anyone else is interested, try looking for an image for Evil, Inc. and post it. :) 8) (Note: You may find more than one image but let's try to go with the best choice that looks like it would be in the right vein of the book. If you can't find one, just go for the funniest one you find. ;D)

Um, also note: you can run across many strange and possibly disturbing and risque pictures on the Internet by searching for random terms. I'm sure you've found that out yourself already anyway though. ??? :o

Cult of Crime seemed to be a pretty tricky one, but I finally found this- I figure it's close enough.
