Charles Forsman got our attention last fall when he imagined Raiders of the Lost Ark in the style of Popeye
, but the Snake Oil
creator’s latest movie/comic strip remix casting Charles Schulz’s Peanuts gang in Steven Spielberg’s Jaws
might be even more endearing. Though he’s a fan of the Jaws
novel at heart, Forsman illustrated movie scenes for fan familiarity. All seven strips depicting key moments from the film have been collected on an 11×17 print that fans can pick up for $20 at his online store
. Read all seven scenes after the jump.
I am a big fan of Peter Benchley who wrote the original [Jaws] book and actually appears in the movie as a TV reporter. Last summer I read almost every Benchley novel. There are still a few I haven’t read but they were all super entertaining if a little dated. Obviously people know Jaws the movie so I did my best to stay faithful to both the movie and Peanuts. I hope it worked and is fun to look at.
