Thanks, Frickenawesome. I'd love to hear how people are interpreting the scenario.

The actual story had an electric boy, attached via an umbilical cord to his house and unable to venture out into the world. His wanna-be dictator neighbor accidentally launches a bomb he bought on eBay into the kid's back yard. The electric boy befriends the bomb, paints a face on it, and finally has a friend, until the dictator kidnaps it back in order to start a successful launch. The boy then has to disconnect himself from his home/mother in order to get his friend back.

I love the original story behind it but agree, this image begs you to create a story. The tension in electric boy v the happy nonchalant 'tude of the bomb is quite intriguing. That he's plugged in and struggling is quite gripping visually. One of the few really gutsy designs with a cute cover to something much deeper. It's a conceptually very rich and rewarding piece of work.
