    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.

  19. A.R.Yngve Says:

    Some blame society for such behavior, others blame DNA.
    Is it genes or environment? Nature or nurture?
    I, for one, blame… SMURFS!

    Those big hairy Smurfs, coming over here, taking our barbarian jobs and our women…

    Good Show, Sir? Nay!

    As we always said in Garthland, “excellent!” 😉
