‘Jaws’ Retold as a ‘Peanuts’ Comic by Charles Forsman
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 11x17 print that fans can pick up for $20 at his online store. Read all seven scenes after the jump.
From Forsman's blog:
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.
