Krazy Hamlet

True Love is a Brick

Written, drawed, and other by P. Calavara, Olympia.

There is some cause to blame ol' man Herriman for this.

So, long ago in a galaxy far far away I scrawled some notes on an early draft of the Hamlet/Star Wars script about doing a Krazy Kat/Hamlet piece- just the notion of the domino effect of each character bricking each other. I kept the scrap of paper around until cleaning my office a bit and deciding I needed to recycle it. The only way I felt I could get rid of this paper was to produce the comic, thus rendering the notes unnecessary. Thus...
I created this from the ground up to be poster size, full knowing that it's far too esoteric to ever be made into a poster. Oh well. For the color, I was trying to somewhat emulate the color halftone printing process of the original comic strip. I may redo it later... or I may not. Anyhow, enjoy.
