The last panel is great. Who knew there were so many comics that lend themselves so well to parody?

Does Lion-O have three arms in one panel? WTF?

The 3rd arm is his claw-thingy (it'll come to me in a minute).
The last panel is good, nearly spayed coffee all over the keyboard!

Its the Claw shield. It is like the scabbard for the Sword of Omens, It also has a reflective property that Lion-O has used against Mum-Ra since for some Odd reason he hates his reflection.

Hahah, I love these. I agree with Hugh, the last panel was hilarious.

I never knew Snarf was so aerodynamic. Good work Protoclown, now I'll never look at the Thundecats without laughing my ass off ever again.

Never having the privilege of reading about Lion-O in the "Thundercats" mythos, I would have been hard-pressed to come up with this explanation myself. Thank you, RPG.

My sentiments exactly, Hugh.

I couldn't begin to count the number of times I wished I had done exactly this, drunk or no. The kicking, not the spraying.

I always wanted to see Snarf and Orko get in a fight to the death. No matter who loses, everybody else wins.

Why would there ever be an actual Thundercats comic where Lion-O kicks snarf like that?

...

Oh wait, actually, why don't more comics end like that?

That last panel is great! Every issue of Thundercats should end like this!
Wait, the upcoming movie should end like this!

mm, that one was great. i actually remember the robot ic bearts anda lways thought to myself, damn those dumb robo bears, they could've built huge death rays or battle suits and didnt even really need the thundercats. also, chances are the ancestors of the robobears are what wiped out the original inhabitants of the planet before they got all pussylike.

Thanks guys. When I actually found a Thundercats comic that showed Lion-o kicking Snarf, I knew what I must do.

Wow, the Thundercats comic lends itself exceptionally well to the Protocomics treatment. Lion-O looks so pissed off the whole time plus two instances of actual Snarf abuse and the third-to-last panel looks like he's about to get bitchslapped by Lion-O.

Best Thundercats comic ever.

would it be terribly obtuse of me to ask why Lion-O was abusing Snarf in the first place?

You have my curiosity piqued

Does he really need a reason?

If I looked like Mum-Ra, I'd hate my reflection too...

I'd like to know, too. Not sure if the local shop has those ones available for me to check on my own. I shall have to investigate.

Hilarious!

And Lion-O kicking Snarf is going to be the wallpaper for my mp3 player. I've been wanting to see that since I was four years old.

Yeah, well, if they don't have the books, I'm going to come back here and pester for the answer, because Enquiring minds want to know.

And I think more remarks on "knowing" and "battles" need not be said...

You..maniacal...bastard..

I guess I'm just going to have to find out on my own. Which USUALLY means that I'm going to start off pumped about it..then slowly lose my will to do so until I end up on the couch eating cheetos and watching Intervention trying to think about what it is that I'm supposed to do. So..I guess..in the end it works out for all of us!

(kidding about calling you a bastard...please don't bannify me! I'll be good, I swear!)

So, I finally got to the comic shop today and found the graphic novel that series had been collected into. Yes, there is a logical reason for Lion-O kicking Snarf and yes, it does lend itself to comic/cartoon convention. I'm debating whether or not to say anything, really, as I'm very anti-spoiler *laughs* Suffice to say, there's a lot of panels in the book that show Lion-O beating on people...

I did not think thundercats could be improved. I stand sooo corrected.
