Yesterday I published the Vintage Martial Arts Mail Order advertisement to be come a Registered Black Belt and learn Aicondo. Todays post is an illustration I did circa 2014 in nod to the, “simultaneous side kick and punch while neck chopping and opponent” behind you illustration in the Aicondo advertisement. Men of Action is just one of examples of many hidden nods and tributes I’ve embedded with in my Worlds Deadliest Web Comic. Many of them will go unnoticed to the lay person but for the real martial arts historians there is much to be discovered within the series. You can read my martial arts webcomic Worlds Deadliest online for free starting with Chapter 1 here.

Another classic mail order martial arts course that ran in comic books and men’s magazines nation wide. For only $6.95 Aicondo will turn you into a deadly fighting machine. It is a deadly self-defense system using the best of Karate, Kung-Fu, Judo and Aikido. If I can learn how to ┬ásimultaneously punch and kicking the air while neck chopping an opponent behind me sign me up! I want to be a studly looking dude in a gi that can pose coolly while young women admire me! As great as the over the top ad copy in Aicondo is I love the illustrations in this ad the most. I’ve actually done original illustrations of my own in tribute to this advertisement in my Worlds Deadliest comic book. Check out Men of Action my nod to the simultaneous side kick punch neck chop double neck chop here.┬áMy nod to the guy standing in the gi with the admiring woman next him has not been published public yet. When I do publish it I will link to it here.
