Great Moments in Failed Cover Art, Part 1

That poor, poor woman! Is that the world’s biggest skidmark, or a mutant Nazi-spawning fart cloud? I’m not sure I want to get close enough to find out.

This is another jewel from Pulp Covers, which I followed from the Google+ link. As for the book itself, it went through three covers—judging by the changes in design, from mid-60s (seen above) to early 70s kitsch (TRIGGER WARNING: topless white chick with Afro and automatic weapon), Assignment: Budapest was in print for a while. Not bad for a single entry in an action-adventure franchise.
