“Murdered by Meatballs!”

LKB90_MurderedbyMeatballs_WebI had a lot of fun working on this strip, and I’ve got to give Marlon credit for developing the scenario to this week’s comic (in particular the valley of fallen food).

The look of and pacing of the strip was influenced by two cartoonists – one being the legendary Harvey Kurtzman, who wrote, drew and edited some of the most unique war comics during the 1950s, however, he is better known for his work in humour (particularly in creating MAD magazine!). Fantagraphics Books released a collection of these strips last year called The Corpse on The Imjin – it’s definitely worth a look if you haven’t already.  I’m also a big fan of Bill Watterson’s Calvin and Hobbes, and always enjoyed the Spaceman Spiff strips that placed readers within the imaginary world of Calvin’s mind.
