So I got the Wayne Barlowe art book “The Alien Life of Wayne Barlowe” last Christmas and finally read through it and I was not expecting to discover that Dougal Dixon’s “Man After Man” stole from Barlowe.
If penguins are anything to go by, Hollywood will shit out at least five movies based on Emperor Sea Striders because of this documentary…
and that’s a good thing.
Nothing about this comic ties into anything really science related. I just wanted to draw something a bit silly. It’s not exactly the adjective one would think of when it comes to Wayne Barlowe’s ‘Expedition’ but it works here.
It’s almost funny that I haven’t done anything with that work yet. The planet’s already called Darwin IV and the whole thing basically revolves around speculative alien evolution.
