    “His flashing thighs cut a sweaty path to Leg Day!”

    After the third mile he said “Get off my leg, for pity’s sake.”

  3. Francis Boyle Says:

    If I wanted to cut a bloody path to power in the dying Roman Empire I wouldn’t start from the Taj Mahal. I’d probably also try to start from at least the right millennium.

    Let Rainbow and Dio set you right as to location.

    Sorry, let Marty Robbins set you right as to location.

    Sorry, sorry. Let Frank set you right as to location.

    How do his arm bands stay in place? Are they glued on like her pasties?

  8. Bruce A Munro Says:

    Good Show Comments is in fine form today.

    Red Sonja is going to be pissed when she finds out he stole the bottom of her battle bikini.

    @Tor Mented: he has to be flexing continuously to keep them on.
    @fred, @Francis Boyle: clearly set in the same continuity as “Xena, Warrior Princess.”

    “How can… I… complete my… very important…quest (ugh) with… this…damn… woman hanging on my leg? Some (puff) remove her… please.”

    “Don’t tell me… Immac?”

  12. Tat Wood Says:

    Let Suggs and his mates set you right as to location. (My wife doesn’t look quite that much like Dee Hartford but can stand upright unaided most of the time).

  13. Bruce A Munro Says:

    Looks like the artist ran out of energy after doing the people. The buildings are just outlines, and the foreground is, what, slate flooring? A beach at low tide?

    @Tracy, I think you’ve explained his pose.

  14. B. Chiclitz Says:

    Take a rogue’s word and eventually you get the boot.

  15. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @Francis: excellent point. I bet he didn’t do really well at what the blurb said.

    @Tracy: especially he’s not going to do well with that. He’s not going to get far.

  16. A. R. Yngve Says:

    The Roman Empire does look a tad too much like Barsoom in this interpretation.

  17. GSS ex-noob Says:

    Frazetta and Vallejo called. They want their everything back.

    Neither the dude nor the damsel are going to be comfortable. Her teat shield and his armored loincloth are going to be hell in very cold or very hot weather. Fellas, I invite you to imagine the chafing he must get.

  18. Paul Houser Says:

    Steranko called he wants his Talon back.

  19. Hammy Says:

    Geez, when did Ricardo Montalban get so buff? Was this before or after that Star Trek movie?

  20. Emster Says:

    Okay, glad I wasn’t the only one mystified by not-very-Romanesque buildings in the background… looks like they also rolling a pair of dice, which landed on a 3 and a 4, indicating the “My Little Pony” font which is to be white on a bright purple background. Sorry, Poul, not your day for cover art, again…
