Today’s sketch was to be the “mascot” for a series I was planning before Paranoid Tales called “Spongehead Funnies”. An actual comic for this “imprint” was produced and sits somewhere in a box. I’ll probably dig it out one day.
A long while back, I was given a comedy script called “Brainwarp” by Eric Hoffman (Mr.Show, Comedy By The Numbers) and asked if I wanted to take a stab at adapting a comic from it. As it had already been made into a short film by Jon Schnepp (Metalocalypse, Venture Brothers), which I thought was hilarious, I wasn’t sure how I’d do the tale of “The World’s Dumbest Supervillain” further justice, though I said I’d give it a shot. Things got fairly busy and the project never did get off the ground, but here’s some of the original character sketches. (Posted with the kind permission of Eric Hoffman). You can now hear episodes of “BrainWarp The Baby Eater” on Feral Audio and iTunes. Enjoy!
