Oh, Doc Shaner. When will you ever be not awesome?
At Shaner’s blog, he’s doing these sort of sketches to prepare for the start of this week’s ComicTWART theme: Popeye, the Sailor Man. “I’ve been a fan of Popeye long before I got into comic books, watching the Fleischer cartoons that ran on television when I was a kid,” explained Shaner. ” I only discovered the strip in college, but if you go back and look at some of the early Segar strips that’s some of the funniest writing in comics history. Not to mention the fluid and dynamic cartooning.”
I love the fact he has Volstagg and Wimpy in the background.
