Parting Shot: Artist Ben Horak’s ‘Love and Rockets’/Looney Tunes Mashup
Combining two things that I love, artist Ben Horak, currently an intern at Fantagraphics, has created an homage to Los Bros Hernandez and Looney Tunes with his clever take on the classic 'The Death of Speedy' storyline from Love and Rockets. You can check out the full piece, plus the original cover, after the cut.
And here's the original cover by Jaime Hernandez:
Speedy Gonzales was created by celebrated animator Robert McKimson. His brothers, Charles and Tom, also served as animators for Warner Bros. I highly doubt they were ever referred to as Los Bros, but we can certainly pretend.
