The Return Of The Jedi-ish…

The Story So Far…

Today we get to see the third, and final installment of the fantastic fan-art trilogy from in by Abhay, from Andover, Massachusetts. In this episode, we see the Peanizles gang transformed into respective Star Wars characters! For the finale, we get a vision of Succotash dressed as Ben Obi-Wan Kenobi, or more correctly, the incredible Tashi-Wan Succobe, brandishing his light saber and fabulous facebook jersey! In the back, just coming over the horizon, two familiar Droids approach, as R2-D2 and Chuck in his alter-ego as C3-PO, or as Abhay calls him Chuck-PO.

Thanks so much for all the hard work and amazing drawings, Abhay!

And keep the artwork coming!!!


Behind The Board

Well faithful Peanizles fan and readers, I’m back!

As many of you might know, I had a trip and fall accident on September 7th, and broke my right arm. To be more specific, I had a compound stress fracture at the end of the radial bone on my right, drawing arm. Apparently, when I reached out to break my fall with my outstretched arms, the force if impact bent me bone and crushed the end of my radius at the elbow. And, brother, did it hurt. It was impossible for me to hold a pencil, let alone try and turn my arm and hand in the slightest. So, my ability to draw was nil.

But, the cartoon must go on.

I asked if any other cartoonist’s would like to try and do a guest strip while my arm was healing. And there were plenty of cartoonists who stepped up to the drawing board. I have managed to have a fresh, new Peanizles comic strip featuring Chuck, Succotash, Oliver, Grace and the gang three times a week, as scheduled. I was really touched by the outpouring of creativity and help from so many cartoonists:

Elena Steier
Dave Sullivan
Chris Mountjoy
Sean Kasper
Tim Jones
Rick Sardinha
George Ford
Geo Gant
Mike Meara
Chris Watson
John Cardinal
Will Wilson

So, I want to give them all the biggest thanks possible!

And I’m going to flex my healing drawing muscles and get back to making with the funny.
