Ahhh, 1983. (resubmitted for extra enjoyment)

Call it the year of the pig and you're liable to have some chinese-toting Kung Fu master give you a slamdown.

In a master of years, 1983 may not have the creation of Transformers or arcade games, but we do have my little pony and Michael Jackson (back when he was still black and doing cool moves like the moonwalk).

In politics we have the declaration of an "evil empire" which was just as sure to win us popularity points as declaring an "axis of evil" would. Also, a proud day in American history with the formal recognition of Martin Luther King, Jr and the rights he fought to champion (no joke needed here).

And what year wouldn't be complete without popular fiction: Risky Business with the famous quote - sometimes you just have to say, what the $%*@.

Overall, 1983, a great year if only because I was born in it too

This reminds me a little of Cho's Kung Fu Fighting shirt from the Music Lyrics week. Except the pig is actually beating up characters.

This has nice composition. Cho's featured one big cat and a bunch of little ones - this one has figures all on par size-wise, and very differently dressed. Lots of action here. I like it! Thanks for the resub, it's fun to see designs close up. I like the pig! I mean boar.

This reminds me of political cartoons from the early 1900s. The same fine artwork that conveys a strong message despite how much time has passed. However, those cartoons did not show animals or people in Asian martial arts wear.
