Sometimes a visual just makes your eyes go popping out of your noggin. And sometimes, a cover image just literally demonstrates how your eyes can go popping out of your noggin.

Some are crude depictions of sex, some that are just plain hilarious, and others are just imaginative universes. We are hooked.
