    Not a bad idea. And by the way, that's the version that Durty Dan redrew, years after the original had started circulating.

    The original, if I recall correctly, was buy a guy named Rob Hart (maybe even Rob Hart Jr.?) and appeared in something like a early-mid-'88 APG. We were talking on the old board about who might have done it- I originally attributed it to Fred "Sgt. Splatter" Moulton, but somebody asked him directly and he said it wasn't his.

    Anyway, somebody found it in the early APG scans right here on MCB. I don't know if anyone still has those archived, but I know there's a couple of Facebook people scanning the old mags too.(Unfortunately, FB is basically unsearchable and the galleries are very poorly laid out.)

    If anyone has access to one of the archives- or even the original magazines- I'm pretty sure (but not positive) it was somewhere mid-'88.

        When I see the image on this forum, I obviously know what it's referring to, but to the uninitiated, I could see "combat manual" starting some strange conversations.
        I disagree with that idea and any other to modernize the image. Its a largely vintage forum and the picture is perfect. No need to insert a Twitter joke or GoPro, no need to update terms or use mechanical text. All those changes just date the image to 2020. Let it be circ 1989, that's what it is. Its interesting to think that, "Yeah, even when the hobby was 6 years old they had those guys..." and while those 1989 outfits would have looked out of date in 1999...in 2020 there are actually a lot of guys wearing green again and trying to use giant stupid scopes. Its perfect. Just put MCB stuff around it.

        It would be nice if we could get ahold of the guy though. The crux of the cartoon is as true as can be. You see the same trend in many scenes. By the end you're literally a mirror image of your noob self and most of the wank you blew $$$ on in between is gone. While you can steal the joke and be more legal its also less cool. Just jack the image respectfully as is.

          I think you nailed it!

          The key here is to be respectful, if there is no money made and it's only available through here as "someone made a batch of cool tee with a iconic print" it seam to be more homage than "stealing the design" ...

          Let's make sure we're all on the same page, give proper credit where due and transparent about what's happening.

            I'm in for 2. I'll even represent our defense, pro bono, in court should the original artist surface and sue.

            Also, I am not a lawyer.

              I would like more forum garb, preferably a hoodie cause you can never have too many. No preference on design really, but I adhere to the 'less is more' mentality as well.

              I'm interested in a t shirt, hoody, and heck even a sweatshirt as well. Don't mention sue...the gardner brothers are still alive.

                Speaking of the devils, here's a video I came across of them nearly getting their heads blown off by demon slayer, Rich Telford.

                  Is it possible to do a Hawaiian print on the sleaves of a tee shirt and a mcarterbrown on the front?

                  I like the first design.

                        I was thinking something similar, like having his poncho covered in team and big game patches. Hard to make things like that legible at the size and resolution we're likely looking at though.

                          You're missing the point. The joke to the whole thing is it's impossible to distinguish between the "newbie" and "expert".

                          The one MCB change would be to have the "expert" be identical to the newbie, except wearing a Hawaiian shirt.

                            JonM definitely made a version where the only change is that the expert wears hawaiian

                            They made you an admin? Good deal, congrats... though it does kind of kill the whole "Ban Axel" joke.

                            Thank you. I don't fully remember how that whole joke started, but I think my contract states I'm still subject to random banation

                              I don't understand the whole mayo thing, but even if I did, I'm not sure I want a shirt that has an inside joke on it. Then I have to explain when people ask. I'd rather just have the name of the website or something simple like the Combat Manual.

                              rawbutter just being silly. You think anyone beyond the age to drink would wear an i eat ass shirt? More of a thing edgy high schoolers wear.
