For the next several weeks I am taking a break. So as part of my May Charity Challenge I asked for submissions of cartoonists to send a movie/tv poster if their characters replaced the actors. I’ll be posting Sunday, Tuesday and Thursdays so check back and give the cartoonists the support you fail to give me. haha. j/k.
First up is Aidan Casserly of Scapula fame. Aiden describes Scapula as
SCAPULA is the story of the World’s Worst Villain…’worst’ in every sense of the word. Scapula is a frustrated, downtrodden man in a somewhat-scary skeleton costume who fights to prove his worth to the world. To do that he’ll have to stake his claim in the underworld, competing with the likes of other crazed super-villains, monsters, gangsters, lunatics and other troubled minds. It’s going to be a tough trip.
I personally think Scapula is a cross between alien Spiderman and the Tick. Typically I am not into long form comics but Aidan’s beautiful illustration work and potty humor keep things so entertaining that I have to stay updated. You can too. He posts every Sunday so check him out.
Next up on Thursday is Robert of Spilled Ink
I hope you enjoy your break Bearman… I just hope the webcomic world don’t fall apart while you are enjoying your leisure.
Take in lots of energy restoring stuff bearman, you need it… (so that’s the first wimp out from code ochre then! joke?)
Who copied my passport photo for the mad-doctor above?
Don’t you know you were the inspiration behind Scapula
Why, Dave’s reputation spreads across not only space, but time as well! He was the inspiration for all of cinema’s great mad doctors!
And Mad Cow
Why, fame in so many ways! BTW bearman, you ahve a gong to collect at HC… be gentle with it…
ill miss you 🙁
first Wilbur (my monkey) goes missing…now you! *shaking head* what am i going to do!? ok im exaggerating, but at least i made you feel special 😀 hehe
yeah wilbur was my stuffed toy monkey… 🙁 dont knwo where he is
ill just go annoy Scotty O then
I love the hunchback eating cheetos… cause that is what I picture a hunchback to be eating. The “poster” looks fantastic. I’m nervous now for the one I submitted.
I agree—The Cheetos are a great touch…That’s the most perverted looking Dracula I’ve ever seen though…creepy…
Hypnausea, the character playing Drac, is the most perverted character ever.
Yours was great too.
Thank you kindly Roland; being the little whiner that I am, all I can see are the faults and am beating myself up about it. I think it’s the natural state of mind for artists to be in a nervous panic!
Nice! Great work Aidan! Looks awesome.
Enjoy your break, Bearman. If I were you, while on break, I’d become Beerman and sit by the pool.
Beerman…isn’t that job taken by the guy on the Simpsons
Thank you, Nate!
…and he’s referring to Duffman! Oh yeah!
Oh yeah…I guess his name isn’t Beerman..haha
ok im like totally stupid at doing this blog stuff… i cant figure out how to sort out my gravatar.com thing it just wont do what i need it to do ..ie put my damn gravatar up so it shows up on your blog and 2) i cant put feedjit on 🙁 grrrr darn my non computer skillz!
You are the only person in the world with gravatar issues.
That Frankenstein monster looks a bit like Rosie O’donnell.
Have a great break. I mean vacation.
I’m sure Frank’s got a tighter ass…
I didn’t realize Frank was stingy with his money…oh wait..you mean.
I forgot that a lot of people looking at this image wouldn’t be familiar with SCAPULA or its cast. Well…that’s down two points for poor planning on my part.
Frankenstein’s Monster is being portrayed by Scapula’s giantess nemesis, Knuckle Sam, whom I’m sure has never met Rosie O’Donnell (although that would be one helluva fight!).
This is impressive
Ahh…so you don’t confuse it with my work..haha
Thank you, Corve!
yeah, make me feel bad won’t ya! i finally get over here to catch up and now you’re going on an long vacation. 😉
well, have lots of fun wherever you’re going and whatever you will be doing! Will you be stopping in and saying hi every once in awhile??
Well I thought you didn’t care so I am going on a break to the loony bin to recuperate from my anxiety about it.
Thanks for introducing me to this little gem! Very impressive. Enjoy the break!
Thanks…doesn’t truly start until Thursday.
Is he referring to me? Aw, shucks! Thanks, Brad!
…oh, wait, maybe he’s referring to you, Bearman. Crapnik!
Hope you have fun on your break. Love this one. The mad dr reminds me of some of the people living in my head.
I wonder the size of that noggin.
Thanks, JB! Mad Doctors always have a few Hydes runnin’ around inside their gullivers.
What???? And you’re not taking…..me?
Have an enjoyable and well deserved break.
I thought I was visiting your house.
Everyone’s beat me to it, but I hope you have a very relaxing break, Beaman (although following Aidan is gonna’ get me heckled right out of the Bearcave)!
It comes as no surprise that A.C.’s submission is nothing short of amazing. Great work as always, Aidan! 🙂
Well you are next so we’ll see “dude”
Ha! *wink & nod* 🙂
Thank you very much, Robert. I think this could have been better, or made more sense, so you may just have me beat in the funny department.
I can make stuff look pretty, but substance? Pffft! Like, whatever, and junk, y’know?
Substance? Pretty? Are those qualities really necessary? I might have to rethink some things.
Makes sense to me, D.H.
And my stuff never makes sense. I like tell myself it’s all about viewers’ personal interpretation(s). I’m getting pretty good at lying to myself. 🙂
Thank you very much for posting, Bearman. Here’s hoping I can swipe a few of your readers like my dear old pa swiped other folks wives and money (…sniff…that’s my old man!).
Incidentally, the comics of Spider-Man and the Tick were sort of an inspiration, so you’ve exposed me as the plagiarist hack that I am!
Keep them comments coming, people! They don’t all have to be nice!
This is my website. Everyone is nice (cough cough)
When I was a child attending catholic school;s we all had to wear devotional scapulas
I went to Catholic school, too. We didn’t wear scapulas…we only wore our shame.
Two points for the pun!
WTF, you can’t take a friggin break, you already had one a few months back!!!!!!! It’s friggin not right I say, not friggin right!!!!!!
I know I suck
I hope you have an amazing break Bearman! Love the movie poster; damn I wish I could draw.
You can…just like finding your way to Carnegie Hall. practice practice practice.
Tell him about it Bear. You just have to want to bad enough.
Thank you, Scott!
Enjoy your break!
Break?!?! I take enough of those on accident. But have fun, and nice poster Aidan.
Shh…I am going to be here. I just want to know what you all have to say when You think I am not around.
Genius! /clinks beer glasses
Thank you kindly, Chris! Now then…where’s my damned beer?!
Great job, Aidan! That’s a perfect movie for ol’ Scap.
I forgot about the movie poster thing. Is it too late for me to do one, Bearman?
Many thanks, George!
…and get a poster in! It’s time we see just what Hank would do on “Titanic”!
Somebody would’ve thrown that kid off the boat long before the iceberg got there. 🙂
Have a great break but remember to come back. That is one scary post, now I will have to sleep with the light on tonight
Scarier than the Groovy Goolies?
Way Cool Scapula 🙂
Thank you, Midwest Mommy!
Would you allow your kids to watch this [fake] movie? Would it be too scary…or too stupid?
Now this is a movie I’d go and see!
…and Bearman, now that you’re on a break, I’m a coming back from mine! =)
Awwww, jealousy burn! Now let’s see if Bearman can get Scott to do the laundry.
Thanks for enjoying, pal!
