    I like how his quiver of arrows is being held up… like, psychically of course!

    “Showing the magic ring” pose does not make you look particularly powerful.

    Lizard: Hey! Get your pink skull off my back.

    Wow.. this is amazing. His stomach looks a little, strange.. like playdoh.

    By the power of Pink-Skull I am Speedoman!

    Rock on with Heman’s older cousin Victor!

    @SI: If you count, Val Kilmer’s head and Ian Thorpe’s body there has the right number of ribs. The problem is that they’re all spaced out wrong. Probably because his sternum sticks down so far.

    Speaking of space, are we to assume that the Magenta Skull and VKhaITb are sticking out of the breathable atmosphere of this planet?

  7. Herm Says:

    Who cares about the human? There’s something seriously wrong with that poor iguana’s spine. Has s/he been stretched on a rack until his/her midriff assumed a jelly-like consistency? Because, I mean, disfigured muscle dude is stepping THROUGH her/him.

  8. John T Says:

    Aw, Roger lad, I luv the dead an’ all.

    I think he needs to practice the moves for “YMCA” a bit more.

    Holy pink skull lightning iguana, Loincloth Man!

    I’ll bet this is what He Man sees when he drops acid.

  11. Vic Says:

    With the arms of a man half-again as tall, and the legs of a man with extra musculature, and the right side of his hair missing…oh AND the “special rib package”. That is a fine specimen of odd-anatomy-hood.

  12. David Cowie Says:

    Purple, oh so purple.

    Speedo man looks to be about 65 years old. Cover yourself up man, before you lose the rest of your dignity!

  13. Parker Says:

    What a time for lightening to strike! He’s pastey because he’s burning on the inside!

  14. Brenope Says:

    NOW I know why teachers made us take “Figure Anatomy” classes in college. Hey, what’s going on with those external obliques?? Besides the fact that he doesn’t have any?

  15. Steve Fahnestalk Says:

    Artist(s) is/are Linda and/or Roger Garland, I think.

  16. Tom Noir Says:

    The more I look at it the more I wonder exactly what that quiver is supposed to be hanging from.

  17. FeârofMüsïc Says:

    @TagWizard: Good soul and kind sir,might I present to you candidates for BEHIND YOU! , weird pecs(or weird man nipples), and skulls~a~poppin of the gigantic variety?

    And that doesn’t look like any place in Ireland I’ve ever seen.

  18. Tag Wizard Says:

    You certainly can, kindly Mr. Féàr Ö’Mîsc-Pècs

    About the physique, though, upon examination of the face can we assume that this is a rockin’ old geezer of the Iggy Pop variety? Can we forgive him some pectoral weirdness, ribular juttings and abdominal deformation?

  19. Tat Wood Says:

    @Tag Wiz: It’s clearly Mr Tomorrow wearing a Lee Majors mask – he must have been a serious fan of ‘The Fall Guy’

  20. Bruce A Munro Says:

    “Isle of the dead? No, this is the Isle of the Buff. Yeah, the giant pink skull does tend to confuse people.”

  21. THX 1139 Says:

    “I have the napkin!”

  22. JuanPaul Says:

    Yeah, that’s how I feel after getting a spray tan.

  23. Francis Boyle Says:

    Things were never the same after the Phantom joined the Chippendales.

  24. fred Says:

    I see your Lebowski Thor and raise you Iggy Thor.

  25. GSS ex-noob Says:

    23, 24: GSS!

    Meanwhile, of possible interest to Rachel and others who marvel/cringe at the whole were-people genre:

    I have no words. Other than: “holy geez, there’s THREE of these?”

    Click through to the first one to see some GSS-worthy cover art.

  26. Bruce A Munro Says:

    GSS ex-noob: it’s enough to make Chuck Tingle retire.

  27. B. Chiclitz Says:

    Well whatdaya know? Cleverly obscured I-can’t-draw-feet feet! I guess the idea is to distract us with all the manly allure oozing from the other body parts, so we don’t notice.

  28. Tor Mented Says:

    @BC: There are many complaints on this website about obscured feet.
    I’m beginning to think this group is lack-toes intolerant.

  29. B. Chiclitz Says:

    @Tor M— you are certainly instep with the zeitgeist! 😉
