  1. Hey David, how do you like your memorial? Smashed, flipped or scrambled?

    Bwah-ha-ha-ha-ha! You crack me up Samson!

  2. We haven’t had a Rob Liefeld day in a while, and I stumbled across this when looking at the superhero memebase site…

  3. But when they enter the building, a convenient falling rock tumbles down and neatly slices off Samson’s hair.
    Again.

  4. What, this place has no restroom? I guess I need to make one myself

  5. They’re gonna “visit” it right into the Washington Memorial…

  6. No shoes, no shirt, no service.

  7. I love how David’s laughing. He already knows Samson’s going to trash the place.

  8. Yeah Myro, I didn’t read anywhere in the bible that Samson was such an a–hole!

  9. Don’t blame Samson, it’s just deep-rooted childhood trauma.

    His parents were gunned down in an alleyway by an acropolis, you see.

  10. @Tophat 9: Lol

    @runt92, that drawing is priceless! Can’t get over those stubby little arms.

    That’s not the Temple of Dagon! Somebody arrest him, quickly! And shave him bald as a cueball then give him electrolysis so his hair can’t magically grow back.

  13. Ok, most if not all of us have commented on it and Jeff’s pointed it out. But I just found this and had to share: http://www.toonopedia.com/samson.htm. I particulary love this comment, “His unnamed and briefly-glimpsed mother didn’t tell him until he was an adult, and he didn’t figure it out despite the fact that his inherited characteristics included not just immense strength, but vulnerability to having his hair cut, a fact that villains apparently knew by instinct. (Fortunately his super powers included the ability to grow his hair back very quickly, like, by the next page of the story.)”

  14. Oh god, Mecha Lincoln is going to cut his hair isn’t he.
