    Dick Blade had better win this interpretative dance-off, or the Disgruntled, Giant-Footed Woman is going to kick his ass.

  2. JuanPaul Says:

    St. Dick and the Dragon. An unrecognized masterpiece.

  3. THX 1139 Says:

    Shaves as close as a Blade – or your money back!

  4. fred Says:

    What’s up with Dick and those Popeye arms?

  5. Tor Mented Says:

    Is that the famous Albert Spear?

  6. Bibliomancer Says:

    I’ve heard of sixpack abs.
    Are these 8-pack ribs?

  7. Tat Wood Says:

    You say ‘crotch-armour’ but all I see is Post-It notes.

  8. fred Says:

    That frozen, icicle laden branch seems a little out of place given the total lack of cold weather clothing.

  9. A.R.Yngve Says:

    Ken und Barbie, like you Engländers have never zeen zem before!

  10. Alice Says:

    Perle von Patmos was her maiden name

  11. Francis Boyle Says:

    Those are definitely Dick’s pecs but the abs are pretty off model. Maybe in this story Dick mutates into a giant crab.

  12. Bruce A Munro Says:

    Dick Blade prepares to strike at his old enemy, Jack Frost, who has frozen his hand to a tree, while in the background Bigfoot Bertha sneers at a dragon. Suddenly, a volcano erupts.

  13. JuanPaul Says:

    Sorry, dragon, but girlfriend needs a new pair of shoes and look at the size of her feet! I might have to take down your entire family.

  14. Anna T. Says:

    @fred, I bet he’s supposed to be grabbing lightning but it was made to look completely unconvincing. You know, for the “MANLINESS”.

    And a message to the woman in back: I don’t think that thin stick is going to do you much good as a weapon.

  15. Raoul Says:

    @Anna – It looks like a cue stick. I think she’s ready to shoot some pool.

  16. B. Chiclitz Says:

    @JuanPaul— Fats Waller would have had a great time with those feet. Actually, as I gaze at them in wonder, I suddenly realize that it’s the artist, straight out of his UAI seminar on linear perspective, trying to show off his skills. Judging by the feet, and extrapolating upwards, she’s really the Colossus of Rhodes!

  17. JuanPaul Says:

    @BC I think your proportions are correct. We’re gonna need a bigger Dick.

    p.s. awesome link!

  18. GSS ex-noob Says:

    Aw, yeah, starting off the new week with Dick. Danke, Helmut.

    I see this version of Dick skips leg day, left arm day, and every day except abs. And he’s got way too many abs. Unless those are his ribs showing because he also skips meals. This is truly a new high (or low) in “anatomical issues”.

    Is Dick holding der Blitz oder der Eiszapfen?

    Is that crotch armor, or did his sumo loincloth come back from the cleaners with too much starch? Or is @Tat right?

    I was going to say the damsel was much better till I read @BC’s comment. The one time someone should have left out the feet, and he didn’t. They’re still hard to draw. Or are we belittling (heh) her unfortunate medical condition?

    @JP: snerk! One wonders why she couldn’t just stomp on the dragon with those Fats feet.

    How are Dick and Colossus Woman surviving so close to an active volcano?

    @Tor: GSS!

    @Bruce: you’ve summed it up perfectly. GSS.

  19. Bruce A Munro Says:

    Anna T: she’s not going to use the stick. Look at that sneer: she’s going to destroy that dragon with sarcasm.

  20. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @Anna T: maybe the stick is a very large acupuncture needle and she’s going to stun it with a Seekrit Death Touch spot? Or expertly pith it? Or use parts of it for her cue ball, as @Raoul suggested?

  21. B. Chiclitz Says:

    I think @Raoul has suggested a much better plot line than the one revolving around Dick’s blade. That is a cue stick she’s holding, and she is going to shoot pool, but the cue ball is actually DIE PERLE VON PATMOS!

  22. Rick Deckard Says:

    Two observations:

    1. That’s neither lightning nor icy stick but a hot electrical wire Der Blade had the misfortune to grab.

    2. Dick’s had enough of our torment and is about to spear himself in the neck.

  23. Verylatetotheparty Says:

    Does he have abs that go all the way up or pecs going all the way down? I’m very confused by this torso. Being non papillial adds to the ambiguity.

  24. Tracy Says:

    If you could fold a plastic action figure like origami into five dimensions, you might get something that looks like the male model here.

  25. Bruce A Munro Says:

    @Tracy: “Do not look too deeply into Blade’s chest muscles! The human mind is not equipped to deal with the true nature of his abs!”

  26. GSS ex-noob Says:

    His torso is definitely eldritch.
