I’m too darn lazy to draw a Sunday strip this week, so consummate guest artist Andrew Farago did these completely random and unrelated pinups for me, featuring the cast as some of his favorite cartoon characters. Here’s Dave as Popeye:
Here’s Mell as Understanding Comics narrator and scheming Narbonic nemesis Scott McCloud:
And here’s Helen in the style of either Keith Knight or Nina Paley, your pick. They’re close personal friends of Andrew’s, or at least he met them a couple of times. But don’t ask them about it.
Another Sunday feature that’s been missing from the archives for a while. Judging from this and the Andrew-assisted material from the previous Sunday, I must have been overworked and forcing him to pick up my slack. Poor Andrew.
I think the third drawing started as a Keith Knight pastiche until Andrew decided it looked more like a Nina Paley pastiche. Or vice versa.
Andrew really, really likes Popeye.
