    We can add “contortionist” to Dickie’s talents.

    Has our Dick been evilly magicked into a plastic squeeze jelly dispenser?

  3. Tat Wood Says:

    Only a hundred yards away, on the other side of the Disney castle, a Texan Leprechaun with a wonky lute was tuning up (see yesterday’s thrilling installment .)

    But wouldn’t it be ‘Jeffrey Graf’?

    Hopalong Conan, the one legged barbarian.

  5. Tor Mented Says:

    If this is the German Dick Blade, why don’t we see his bund?

  6. Francis Boyle Says:

    Have to say, the faux cloth effect really makes this cover. So classy!

    Now why hasn’t Dick got a green hat?

  7. Bruce A Munro Says:

    For Dick Blade [1], this is positively overdressed.

    The Green Girl looks displeased. Possible due to one of her legs apparently being tied in a knot.

    @Tat Wood: Speaking of Disney castles, it sort of clashes with the Loincloth and Sandals Aesthetic.

    [1] Who is indeed holding a massive phallic symbol.

  8. B. Chiclitz Says:

    For once our Dick seems to be missing his usual look of smug triumph. Perhaps it’s due to the brick that seems to have fallen from the sky and crushed his helmet, or maybe it’s because the damsel du jour has her legs tied in a knot.

    @Tor M—GSS!

  9. Tor Mented Says:

    @B. Chiclitz :Lol. Now I can’t see that as anything but a brick. Dick does look a bit dazed by the impact.

  10. Bruce A Munro Says:

    Looks like a big pencil eraser to me. Pencil Head III, son of Son of Pencil Head! He fights crime. And monsters.

  11. GSS ex-noob Says:

    AW yeah — weekend Dick!

    Is the expression on his face due to him realizing he’s missing a leg? (cue Cook & Moore’s classic One Legged Tarzan sketch)

    There must be something in this part of Dimension X that’s got it in for legs, judging by Green Girl’s legs too.

    @Tat: Gottfried Graf.

    @BC: It looked like a brick to me. Poor Dick, suffering from a cartoon-like concussion, and missing a leg. And he might even be hearing the country lutenist from the other side of the castle.

    @Tag Wiz: Mr. xn would like to request yon damsel be awarded the Sir Mix tag.

  12. Bibliomancer Says:

    Dick’s damsel is giving him some real stank-eye

    “I’ve got a bagel, got me a butter knife, now I just need to find me some cream cheese.”

  14. Bruce A Munro Says:

    @JuanPaul: looks more like a danish to me.
