Damn you upskirt winds!Click for larger image

Tor Mented Comments: Legally, we can’t put Frank Frazetta’s name on the cover, but nothing says we can’t put his face on there.

Published 1976

Actually, that cover IS a classical work of art!I would touch it without protective gloves.I've seen worse. Far, far, worse.Interesting, but I would still read it in public.Middlng: Neither awful nor awfully goodWould not like to be seen reading that!Awful... just awful...That belongs in a gold-lame picture frame!Gah... my eyes are burning! Feels so good!Good Show Sir! (Average: 7.29 out of 10)

    And that brings Blade Week to an end.
    A hearty Good Show Sir to Tor Mented for all the terrible covers!

  2. B. Chiclitz Says:

    Dick’s head looks like a cheesy photoshop job.

  3. THX 1139 Says:

    Champion of the Gods… or Campy One of the Gods?

  4. Francis Boyle Says:

    Is this a Dick Blade/Gor crossover. Because it looks like a Dick Blade/Gor crossover.

  5. fred Says:

    The least bosomy woman ever to appear on a Dick Blade cover?

    “I need to go pee so bad!”

  7. Tat Wood Says:

    The girl can’t bring herself to watch; we can’t see the reaction of the henchman forced to endure Dick’s Bruce Forsyth impression but he’s probably just as embarrassed.

    Blade week? I thought this was “mismatched heads and bodies” week.

  9. Bruce A Munro Says:

    Blade draws his blade, horrified by the sight of his enemy’s perm. In the background, caveman Sam Elliot provides narration.

  10. fred Says:

    It doesn’t say exactly what kind of ‘champion’. If it’s competitive eating, it looks like
    Dick is just beginning to be hit with some industrial strength digestive trouble.

    So this trip to Dimension X has badly swapped Dick’s head for Frank’s (poor Frank), trapped him in an upskirt blast, has his legs in the pee-pee dance pose, and he’s using a knife on… Yoda? (squints) No, it’s a guy with a terrible hairdon’t.

    I can’t blame the damsel for averting her eyes. It’s all too horrible to contemplate.

    A hearty GSS! to all, I agree with all today’s comments.

    GSS with laurel crown to Tor for finding this week’s content! I’ve only ever spotted Dick (har) once in the wild, and it was a later one with a boring almost-competent cover, plus it was set in a part of Dimension X that was mid-20th century England.

    “plus it was set in a part of Dimension X that was mid-20th century England.”

    Well, that’s at least a change from the usual “mostly naked barbarianland with dinosaurs maybe”

  13. Bruce A Munro Says:

    (Now I have a mental image of Dick Blade being arrested by the bobbies for running around 1950s England in his usual outfit: “‘here, what’s all this then?”)

  14. A. R. Yngve Says:

    In the far left background, the severed head of Asterix makes a grisly display of Richard Blade’s barbarity. Have you no shame, Blade? At long last, sir, have you no shame??

  15. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @Bruce: He did run into some MPs who weren’t happy with his naked greased state, IIRC, even in slightly-alternate-England. And the obligatory woman was actually a genius!

    @ARY: I think Asterix is peeking out from the cave and wisely deciding not to get involved in any of this. These Dicks are crazy!

  16. Hammy Says:

    Whose head has been pasted on Dick’s body? It looks like a constipated Tom Jones to me…..

  17. Anti-Sceptic Says:

    Dick was ready for his knife fight at noon. But the undercooked sausages he had the night prior were vying for Dick’s attention as well. Who will get to Blade first? The sausages or the barbarian?
