Shaken, Not Churned

Episode 29: “Shaken, Not Churned”

Over the weekend, we learned about the death of legendary cartoonist Bernie Wrightson. There’s nothing I can add to the beautiful remembrances shared online by his many friends and collaborators. I encourage you to spend some time with his work this week. It’s as lush and intricate as any cartoon art ever made. As a nod to his work, I scrapped the art for the first panel and – as our hero is in a tavern – I added three of Mr. Wrightson’s famous characters raising a pint.

This coming weekend, I’ll be a guest of the South Carolina Comicon. If you’re in the Greenville, South Carolina area this weekend, come by and say, “Hail, and Well Met.”

Thanks for reading and sharing!

  1. SwampThing, (with a twig in his drink,) what looks like Superman, (but I don’t recognize the uniform, double breasted military with shoulder patches,) and the third guy I don’t recognize, (the arms look pretty vital for a zombie.)

  2. Mike, Tom, you both got one. It’s Swamp Thing, Captain Sternn (seen in the Heavy Metal movie) and Frankenstein’s Monster. All three were amazingly drawn by Bernie Wrightson.
