Top Pick:

Shirtless Bear Fighter #1

Shirtless Bear Fighter #1


What else can I say about Shirtless Bear Fighter besides “shirtless bear fighter”? A sendup of 80s action heroes, it begins almost like the Arnold Schwarzenegger classic Commando, except with a guy who’s really good at fighting bears. Why is he so good at fighting bears? FIND OUT HERE! Ludicrous, absolutely ridiculous, and a lot of fun.
