    Blade looks like Charles Atlas in the classic Monty Python sketch animated by Terry Gilliam.

    Step back, everyone, Dick’s about to blow!

    As Dick’s little head always does the thinking he’s in deep trouble in this one.

    Is she somehow perched on Dick’s dick? It has to be that or she’s an inflatable sex doll. (I know Dick’s super manly and strong and all that but women don’t exactly come with handles.)

    On an unrelated note I don’t think I’ve ever seen Dick looking so much like he’s been designed by H.R. Giger than here.

    These days, dull-but-loyal Cabinet Ministers get put in the wrong job, left to fail, fired and rehired within six weeks. Back when Jim Callaghan was in charge, they’d get a head-graft onto the body of a weightlifter and a life-size polystyrene Jane Russell.

    When it comes to Dick Blade, the French know how to do proper mountains.

    Looks like Dick is a diplomat in this one.

    ‘WAR OF THE SEXES
    Richard Blade’s trained hearing had picked up the sound of footsteps, approaching slowly and stealthily. With a quick jerk of his powerful arms, he pulled himself back up into the tree. Through the dense foliage he saw them–eight young women, dressed in camouflage suits.

    Then he heard a steadily swelling chorus of grunts and half-verbalized mutterings. Four Neanderthal-like men appeared in the clearing. The sudden ferocity of the women attacking the men chilled Blade. But he was totally unprepared for what followed the kill — a cannibalistic feast!

    Blade soon learned that Brega was ruled by women who raised men in pens, then hunted them for sport. He also learned that he wanted no part of them.

    Leaving Brega, headed for the Mountains of the Sun, Blade is challenged by what is equally as formidable a tribe — but this time it’s all men who relish killing women. Blade quickly sees that between the two extremes there must be a compromise and his attempts at a resolution nearly cost him his life!’

    Starting the week with Dick!

    @ARY: He really does, minus the smile and plus the sword.

    @Francis: With her leg hooked over Dick’s dick like riding sidesaddle, maybe? Still, even as mighty as it is, I doubt it can support a whole woman, so maybe Dick’s got a shelf attached or she’s able to levitate or summat.

    Or Dick’s stolen the tiny tribesmens’ inflatable doll. (You attach the air pump to the jewel thingy at her navel.)

    @fred: But why is the damsel a mermaid in French? A mermaid in outer space, no less!

    Also, Blade being diplomatic is further out even than Dimension X.

    GSS to @Tor for finding this.

    “That’s it Nigel, aim for his armpit. It’s the only place besides his head that isn’t covered in hypertrophied muscle mass. Me, I’m going for that T-Bone steak he’s got hidden in his abdomen.”

    Where are the mountains? Oh wait, is the girl’s name Brega?
