This comcic came about from a piece I did for Owl Magazine that will come out in March. It was a double page spread of tips on making comics. I suggested taking an event and thinking about how different characters would deal with it. As an example I did a vampire attack. Hercules beat the vamp with a club. Pinochio drove his nose through it’s heart while lying. The last person was “my high school girlfriend” and had her gitting bit on the neck saying “Ow! Not on my hickey!”.  They thought they’d like something less racy so I did a different scenario, but you’ll have to wait until March to see what it is.

    That’s a great idea — Pinocchio *would* be a very handy (If undependable and feeble) vampire-slayer. And he’s sort of an undead creation, himself… I doubt that sap still flows through his lumber.

    Hm, and I was about to compare Geppetto to Dr. Frankenstein but it really doesn’t work. Research tells me that Pinocchio was carved out of a single piece of wood; plus I can’t tell if Frankenstein’s monster is literally dead-but-alive like a zombie/vampire or more like a recent cadaver that was restored to life with breakthrough medical techniques.

    Frankenstein’s monster is more the equivalent of a wooden-hulled ship that an undead tree.
