    I’m confused, don’t the women come with booty, why do they thirst for that as well?

  2. THX 1138 Says:

    It’s amazing what you can pick up on the way home at the local Spaaaargh.

  3. Bibliomancer Says:

    Garthland must be on Planet Wayne.

  4. THX 1138 Says:

    He may be abducting two damsels, but his heart is with Bugs Bunny dressed as a girl bunny.

  5. Francis Boyle Says:

    Swords of the Barbarians. Sound choice there, Kenneth. Sporks of the Barbarians might have caused problems with the narrative.

    I knew I recognized Garth #1 from somewhere.

    “Above you!”

  8. B. Chiclitz Says:

    Those flying dinos seem to be lacking all internal skeletal structures.

  9. B. Chiclitz Says:

    “In the tradition of Conan.” Translation: nothing like Conan.

  10. Anna T. Says:

    It would seem the artist was trying to up cheesy monster movie posters from the ’50s by having the big ogre-ish guy holding two women instead of one.

    There was a period of time between his expulsion from Hogwarts and his hiring on as groundskeeper that Rubeus Hagrid really fell in with the wrong crowd.

  12. GSS ex-noob Says:

    The swords are rather less prominent on this than the damsels and pterodactyls. (Again, I miss DSWBT; he’d have given us the species name)

    Garth Land — or is it “Wayne’s World”? is awfully green.

    @MakkaPakka (1) The two chaps in the background only have one girl each, so I guess they’re the ones still thirsting for it. Greedy.

    @fred (6): I do hope he was less hirsute while working for the Post Office. Typical; raging barbarian in youth, then settles down to a civil service job.

    @BC (8): They’re helium balloons.

    @Lillie (11): You are indeed Awesome. Same path as I said above: raging barbarian, then working for an institution.

    GSS: GSS!

  13. Tor Mented Says:

    Then it’s true what they say: Mountain men keep mountain women.

  14. JuanPaul Says:

    Instead of seeking out women, booty, and blood they should have invested thier time into an anti-pterodactyl weapon.

  15. drlemaster Says:

    I’m no DSWBT, but I think those are pteranadons (big crest, no teeth) as drawn by someone who doesn’t understand how skeletons work (as B. Chiclitz pointed out).

  16. MakkaPakka Says:

    @GSS exnoob: I see, 6 brides for 3 brothers, could there be a musical in this?

  17. Bruce A Munro Says:

    Poor barbarian. All the loot, all the dames, all the rubber Pteranadon you can eat, and he’s still blue.

  18. Tat Wood Says:

    He misconstrued someone telling him to roll Mum on his armpits.
