INKtober 2020 – Day 31 – Laurel and Hardy by Cartoonist Davy Jones
INKtober today features the greatest comedic duo to have ever lived. I am a HUGE Laurel and Hardy fan and I have been all of my life. I am nearing completion of a comic book starring these two amazing comedians. I have read several Laurel and Hardy comic books and they never capture the magic of the actual comedians. My goal is to create a story so endearing and so true-to the-boys that the tale would fill that void in my heart. After seeing every existing Laurel and Hardy short and feature film, I am yearning for something new and worth of their namesake. I have that story in the works.
In my story. Stan Laurel, a world renowned fencing champion is mistakenly hired by the mob as their “fencer of stolen goods”. Torn between right and wrong… and life or death… the boys are off the make a high stakes exchange after Stan’s fiancé is held for “insurance”.
Pretty cool. right?
I am trying my best to make contact with the comic book company who owns the comic book license for Laurel and Hardy. So far, I have not received a response. My plan is to produce completely the cover and a few pages… and then follow up with the entire story in a loose storyboard outline. Once completed, it will be mailed to them if I can find their mailing address. Anyone know a contact at American Mythology?
Thank you all for reading my INKtober drawings this month. I hope you enjoyed looking and my drawings as much as I enjoyed drawing them!!!! We will do this again next year.
