So I love old 80’s action movies. Especially Arnie ones. Predator and Conan the Barbarian have to be two of my all time favorites and naturally, I tend to quote them. A lot.
It’s no surprise that Panda is a bit at ease, nothing worse than a Boo running around in a loincloth, wielding a broad sword and screaming “Crom!”.
This is one of the comics were the joke doesn’t really work unless you know the movies it’s referencing. Which isn’t really a bad thing as I’ve found when someone doesn’t “get the joke”, they may just search and find out about the awesome that was mentioned.
Of course, it could also alienate those who don’t get it. But seriously, who doesn’t know about The Predator and Conan the Barbarian?
Did I just alienate even more people?
Fun fact, Marie didn’t know how to draw bullet belts and a mini-gun for this comic so I flooded her with many images on them to a point where many agencies contacted me about my google search history….
