UPDATE: Have a new poster available: ET + Garfield
After my Raiders/Popeye (still available) strip was so well received I decided to try another combination. After a failed attempt at another combination I decided to try mashing up 2 of my all-time favorites: Spielberg and Benchley's Jaws drawn like Schulz's Peanuts.
Like the last mashup, this one does not try to tell the whole story but rather depict a some of my favorite scenes.
I am a big fan of Peter Benchley who wrote the original book and actually appears in the movie as a TV reporter. Last summer I read almost every Benchley novel. There are still a few I haven't read but they were all super entertaining if a little dated. Obviously people know Jaws the movie so I did my best to stay faithful to both the movie and Peanuts. I hope it worked and is fun to look at. I did 7 strips in all and you can see them all below. Like last time, I am offering a print of all 7 strips. You can find it in the Oily Boutique. I ship them in tubes so they arrive undamaged (I hope). This was really fun to do, I hope it's fun to look at. I do these for fun but also the last one got me through a tough time financially. While I am not in the same dire straights as I was last October things are never easy with me and money. If these things make some money they help me mind rest a little easier and they allow me to free up space in my brain for things like my new comic book, Celebrated Summer. I am really happy about the way it is going so far and I have much more exciting news about that book at a later date. I want to get the thing finished first before I talk about that too much. But look here for periodical looks at that panels and pages as I work on it.
I wish you well.
Oh yeah! Here is a look at the whole thing:
