Mr. Bigfoot

This is an odd-ball three pager I dug up from the back of the flat files. I believe it was a donation, done for a comic book that was created to publicize the homeless situation. Not sure what year; probably the late 1990’s I suspect. Pete Hogan wrote the script and if memory serves, it was done under a screaming deadline. I think I had an afternoon to pencil ink and letter all three pages!

Anyone out there know the comic it was published in?

    Jeez, Rick! It’s hard enough to be a Rick Veitch completist with the diversity of publishers you’ve worked for. Now you’re telling me you pencil, ink, and letter three pages in an afternoon!? I can’t keep up! Bloody hell.

    Normally I’m a one-page-a-day man. This was one of those crazy situations where I didn’t have that luxury. I essentially inked over layouts (and it kinda’ looks it).

    Rick, you are so the man. The Pac-Man thing is just surreal. And what’s up with the Nancy hairdo? I’m sure it was intentional, but why? Your brain just throws out these lightning bolts….!! Don’t ever change, sir….
    And kudos to Peter Hogan on the script. Very cool and Paddy Chayevsky-like…your art works right on top, like a brainier MAD treatment…

    Awesome art by the way! I especially love the panel of Miss Woodley running in her bikini on the last page.

    Chief Awooboppa kinda reminds me of those gorillas that popped up in Greyshirt a few times. Come to think of it, Cy-Gor was a gorilla. And didn’t Swampy go to Gorilla City once? Is there a theme or obsession here? Or is it just that if you throw a gorilla on the cover, it’ll sell!
