Slab's First Fist 17 : the Decision

" and the winner... by stoppage is..DONALD, THE RAPTOR....BASTARD!!"

Bobby Bigloaf is up and cheering his cartoon hero. He rushes to congratulate him.

The vanquished Slab and his ruined pooberty fists skulk away in shame.

Bobby gives a Donald a well-practiced, furry-worthy-man-hug as Big John looks down with pride at the scene of youthful joy. There's nothing like a good dose of violence to warm the heart of any decent red-blooded boy!
"Gee Mr. Cartoon Bastard," squeals Bobby, "you sure showed those bullies!"
Then the poor little future cartoon-scribe laments his own natural wimpiness. "Gosh, I was wish I could kick some bully butt like you, but I'm just a little old defenseless fatty."
Big John has the answer: "Bobby, you don't have to work out for 10 years to get a black belt in self-defense! We need you eating potato chips and writing superhero comic books!
What you do need is this fancy-ass official Donald Bastard T shirt! No one's gonna mess with you in a manly shirt like this!
Donald Bastard
Bobby quickly tears the sweat-stained white shirt off of his smooth shiny chest...
To be continued...

Hey folks, I just cracked 10,000,000 hits today! Thanks to you.
Here's Mr. Paal, a talented young cartoonist celebrating the occasion he helped happen.

Your deserving of a furry-worthy-manhug John.

This storyboard has everything - action, emotion, -and- an opportunity to shill merchandise!

The T-shirt looks like it'd be hell to animate, though, since it's not just a picture, it has to deform around other objects... like Bobby. How would you go about doing that?

10,000 hits? Thats even more than Bobby Bigloaf got! Congrats!

Niki said...

Yeeeaah!!

Britt said...

Hi John, so where did you're search engine go?

Cubits said...

As Slab skulks off, he should be kicking his head along like an empty can. :)

Big John looks hilarious. I love that proud-to-be-alive expression in his face as well as his stance.

Trevor Thompson said...

Hey John, as long as yer listening to complaints, how come the notebook doodles from the last Bigloaf vs. Slab vs. Donald aren't up for sale yet? There's two I've got my eye on.

Thanks!

There you go, a tasteful example of non-intrusive merchandising, without the need for some kind of perplexing trading card game.

Loving the story by the way, if Donald had his own show it might be worth bothering with cable TV again!
