The thing was I wanted to do a John Carpenter inspired comic because the man turned 69 years old on the 16th. Who’s John Carpenter you might ask? He’s just one of the greatest movie directors of all time, that’s who! He’s the guy that directed Escape from New York (and L.A.), The Thing AND Halloween! The man is a living legend!
It also turned out that it was Trump’s inauguration date was on the same week so… Hell! Might as well mash these two together, considering Trump’s love for walls and all that. Also the 2nd and 3rd part of his speechbubble in the 2nd panel are quotes that he has actually said. Make of that what you will.
Anyway. It was really fun to draw Snake Plissken for this comic as well. And I probably did spend a little too much time getting his symbolic gun the way I wanted it BUT oh well!
And if you haven’t seen Escape from New York yet, you should stop reading this and go watch it. Hell, if you HAVE seen it before you should stop reading this and go watch it. It’s a great movie
Stay awesome, slacker dudes and dudettes!
