I did this piece when I was in an old comic mood, reading old stuff like Charlton and Harvey comics.
Hot Stuff is a counterpart to Casper, but they never met. He's still popular as an "evil" tattoo and as figurine.
This specific piece is done with 2 types of coloring: one with a watercolor style and the other with off-register dots like a badly printed comic.
Which one do you prefer ?
Comments open !
I actually dismiss all the Harvey efforts as fictions written & drawn by Harvey, with Casper as a staff member, a sort of "Casper Code Authority". When he agitated for more control over the stories, he got dismissed. Later, he was about to take Steven Spielberg to court over that movie he made, and at that point,my fan-fiction starts.
One of the pics in Harveyville Fun Times shows Spooky recoiling in shock & Horror at a boxer using a severed human head as a punching bag ! This hideous image was simply to indicate that Spooky's artist also did horror comics in a more realistic way (flesh rotting from radium rays...)
She was an obscure character ! but I like those...
I remember Winnie the Witch! She was before my time but, when I was a kid, there was a health food store with boxes of old comics for sale. I assume that they were the owner's old comics. There was a whole mess of old Charlton horror comics for 10 or 25 cents. I bought all of them. They were so much fun (and more than a few had Winnie).
And you did a great job on this picture. I like the coloring on this one the best.
