    “You might feel a little prick… oh, you already have.”

    Interesting pose by Doc. It looks like he is escorting a little old lady across the street with his right arm while carrying her pet cheetah with his left, which explains the condition of his shirt.

  3. Michael Toland Says:

    Being a supervillain has apparently lost its allure for Khan up there. He looks pretty bored.

  4. Tat Wood Says:

    The Mongol Horde was led by Norman Beaton? Fi’ true?

  5. Bibliomancer Says:

    Doc needs his juice. Will do the Khan any favor to get it.

  6. Anna T. Says:

    Either the history books didn’t record that Genghis Khan was actually a giant statue who wielded syringes in battle, or someone’s been up to a little necromancy and statue animating.

    Oh dear.

    The story of how Doc “The Bronzeman” Savage hooked up with Genghis “The Needle” Khan to develop the world’s first injectable tanning solution.

  8. A.R.Yngve Says:

    I posted a version of the disco song “Djingis Khan” – but then decided that this was too silly even for Good Show Sir, and deleted it…

    Now how about those text fonts?

  9. A.R.Yngve Says:

    “Der Bronzemann” does NOT sound family-friendly. I don’t know what it is, and I don’t want to know.

  10. Tag Wizard Says:

    @A.R. – Not to worry. I’m sure our GSS comedy quality filter would have flagged you disco parody before it could post.

  11. THX 1139 Says:

    @ARY: Doc Savage, Man of Bronze. Simple as that. It would be his Twitter handle if he was still around.

  12. Bruce A Munro Says:

    @Michael Toland: he’s not bored, just very mellow.

    The Doc looks rather uncomfortable: perhaps that growth hormone isn’t working out for him?

    “Too…many…muscles! Increasingly…difficult…to run!”

  13. GSS ex-noob Says:

    Doc looks like he should be saying “herp derp, dum de dum” as he marches along swinging his arms. And he’s got way too much muscle development in his neck — I don’t think he can bend it. No growth in his head, though. And shouldn’t he be “der Mann aus Bronze”, or wouldn’t that fit on the book?

    I think Khan is The Man of Copper (Oxidized).
    His fingernail looks manicured, and he’s holding the syringe like a cigarette.

    Quiz time!

    Genghis looks:

    a) not Mongol
    b) bored
    c) anachronistically tech’ed
    d) all of the above

    Does the translation refer to his:

    1) whip
    2) curse
    3) blight
    4) hat tassel
    5) flagellum
    6) all of the above

    The explosive book that blew the lid off the conspiracy to cover up Charles Bronson’s drug problem!

  15. GSS ex-noob Says:

    Looks more like Bronson was a pusher than a user, if this cover is to be believed. Steroids to pump up young actors.
