The Slobbit- MAD #522

I can finally share a sneak peek of “The Slobbit” from MAD #522. The above splash is not the actual splash from the magazine but my art with the layout text boxes and copy pasted in… the guys at MAD were too busy producing a magazine to get me a JPEG of the final pages. Due to the odd nature of the splash with the map and overlaying insets I didn’t do the inked text boxes, but rather assembled the whole thing digitally and submitted “full art” as they call it. MAD did the text boxes on the final, although I did it the usual way the rest of the parody. Here’s the art sans text boxes:

Clicky to embiggen…

Desmond Devlin was the writer on this parody, and he suggested the map format for the splash. He sent me a long list of possible silly names of places on the map, but I came up with about 1/2 of them myself. Yes, “Morning Wood” and “Six Flags over Mordor” were among my contributions… I am so proud.

I was really sick of dwarves by the end of this job. Here are some panels from the rest of the story:

    The troll piece has some Jack Davis energy to it. Well done.
