In putting together this summer's superhero-themed SpongeBob Comics Annual-Size Super-Giant Swimtacular #2, United Plankton Pictures dug deep and left-of-center for inspiration and riff material. How deep, and how left-of-center? Well, the book includes, "I Shall Destroy All The Civilized Planktons!", a rather meticulously assembled homage to the work of Golden Age oddball artist Fletcher Hanks and his Stardust The Super-Wizard, by Paul Karasik and R. Sikoryak.
That story follows a few featuring more traditional targets of parody, like a Western-themed story starring SpongeBob regular Mermaid Man, who is basically just Silver Age Aquaman with sea shells over his nipples and a starfish in the middle of his face, and another in which Squidward becomes Batman parody the Squishy Knight and SpongeBob becomes "Multi-Purpose Sponge, the hero with a different costume in every panel" (which allows for panel after panel of SpongeBob dressed as various Marvel and DC superheroes).
The game is due out during the first quarter of this year (and that's already a third over). It mashes up Space Invaders and Galaga-style shooting with platforming for a major retro gaming experience. Check out a trailer after the jump.
James Kochalka has a Christmas present for us all.
A brand new comic, Superf*ckers Save Christmas, is available for $1.99 on ComiXology as of today. The issue's story started out an episode of Cartoon Hangover's Superf*ckers animated series, but as the episode never saw fruition, Kochalka adapted as a comic.
As reported earlier this month, writer/artist James Kochalka is ending American Elf, his daily four-panel "sketchbook diary" comic, after a 14 year run. With 2012 winding down, we thought it best that ComicsA
Unless you count those Silver Age stories where Superman writes his memoirs in a giant golden book in the dead language of the planet Krypton, I've never been a huge fan of diary comics. The one exception has always been American Elf, the long-running "s
Last week, James Kochalka's SuperF*ckers debuted as an animated web series from Frederator Studios' Cartoon Hangover, and it is every bit as foulmouthed, hateful and hilarious as the original comic series. Set to run as a 12-episode season, SF focuses on a group of super-powered teens who are too busy sittin
James Kochalka'sSuperF*ckersis one of the funniest comics I've ever read, so I've been looking forward to the animated adaptation ever since it was announced. Produced by Cartoon Hangover, the adult-oriented side of Adventure Time and Bravest Warriors' Frederator Studios, the series of shorts has finally kicked off on YouTube, and it
Jame's Kochalka's Top Shelf series SuperF*ckers has been winning over comic book reading audiences for years with its brand of relentlessly profane teen nonheroism, so fan expectations for its animated incarnation coming to Frederator Studios' (Adventure Time, Bravest Warriors) new online channel known as Cartoon Hanger have been appropriately high. Test animation and other promo materials have been circulating on CH and Kochalka's various blogs and social media
