Captain Johnny Depp 100th Spectacular!
Yo ho, yo ho, a pirate’s life for me. We pillage plunder, we rifle and loot. Drink up me ‘earties, yo ho. We kidnap and ravage and don’t give a hoot. Drink up me ‘earties, yo ho. – George W. Bush
Number 100! Quite an accomplishment, if I do say so. When I wrote this I had no idea it was going to be number 100. I’m glad it was though. It’s a good one, featuring one of my favorite actors, Mr. Johnny Depp. Our first major celebrity to appear in the comic (No offense to Mr. Mike Park). I also got to draw a pirate, and if you know me in person you’re likely aware that I have an affinity for pirates, and especially Pirates of the Caribbean(both the ride and films). So this was lots of fun to draw.
I’ve been talking about fantasy casting for Black Snow recently, but if an I’m Famous! movie were made I think Johnny Depp would make a fine Lone Wolf.
When I sat down to draw this comic it was actually funnier than I remembered, what with the Lone Wolf putting down the Pirates movies and offering Johnny Depp a role…as the Wolf Pack! I love that the Lone Wolf’s mood shifts in every panel here; reverence, to cockiness, to disdain, ending with inappropriate anger! Fantastic!
And in an interesting note, if you don’t know much about Johnny Depp he is known for being fairly weird in real life. He’s particularly known for living out his characters and having a hard time switching back to himself once a film is complete. So this bizarre scenario you’ve just read may have actually happened at some point in real life.
What’s next? Well, I have two more pages written, and I’m still not sure if Alex will be taking back over or if I’ll continue to carry the Famous torch. But before that we have a two part Thor special coming! This is being done for a contest on Comicracy for some Thor tickets to a preview in LA and a videogame. It would be rather fitting if Alex and I won the tickets and took a trip to LA. BTW, I’ve already started drawing it, and it’s funny.
