Ladies and Gentlemen, Mr. Nicolas Cage

Not much beef on this cake, admittedly, but this is today's Beefcake Week selection from the 1993 Marvel Swimsuit Special. I must admit I really like this one, it's a good gag and the painting itself is actually kind of strangely lovely and skilled, a lot of intricate brush strokes go to make up this striking image. Also I like that this is one of those comic related images that is fairly odd in context, and just plain bizarre out of context. One wonders what future archaeologists will make of this sort of thing.

The partially melted shades and Coppertone bottle are a nice touch.

Wait...Coppertone? Spread on what?

Aaron said...

Haha, yeah, I was wondering that myself.

Full frontal!

lol, I didnt' even notice the shades and the Coppertone.

I guess when your skull's already on fire, you need all the help you can to prevent any further burning.

Aaron, taken out of context, this reminds me of a Salvador Dali painting. He liked painting giraffes on fire, after all.
