And you can read all about it in that Entertainment Weekly article I just linked to! I’m super excited for this, and so stoked he was able to come on board. The issue - #26, out next month - is about Doreen making all her superpowered friends write comics for a zine she’s pulling together. And Jim Davis is making Galactus’s OWN AUTOBIOGRAPHICAL COMICS come to life.
Here’s an excerpt from the article!
“When you look at the Silver Surfer, he’s 75 percent of the way there anyway with Jon, all we had to do is give him the big eyes. That was a natural. John kind of hangs around Garfield anyway, he’s the straight man to Garfield’s gags and has to get him food. He’s like Garfield’s herald. Galactus was tougher. We were throwing stuff back and forth, and the initial sketches just weren’t working for Galactus. I said okay, we gotta make him fat. The guy eats planets, for god’s sake! Once we do that, it’s a little less Galactus but certainly a lot more Garfield. It looked more natural. Obviously, Galactus has put on a few mega-tons for this strip.”
You can read the whole thing here, and included are some sneak peeks at but some of the GALACTUS COMICS we made, as well as unlettered Kraven art from Michael Cho, Spider-Man comics by @rahzzah, Tippy art by Rico Renzi (our colourist!), and Howard art by @zdarsky, whose story is written by @ericafailsatlife (our artist!)! It’s going to be a RIDICULOUSLY FUN ISSUE and I can’t wait for y’all to read it. Thank you Jim for being down for this and thank you all for supporting the book so much that we get to do crazy things like this!!
