So Nick Bertozzi usually has his storytelling class do war stories from recent primary resources, students usually get really good comics out of them. But when I took his class last spring he said he was too depressed to do war stories and instead told us to find the most ridiculous fanfiction we could and adapt it to a four page comic.
I found Space for RENT in Latveria, written by the mysterious Swamp Thing in the crossover musical section of fanfiction.net (I highly recommend checking out that section, I don't think there's anything like it.) With the artistic challenge of RENT meets the Fantastic Four, I figured I'd do this thing the right way, aka the Jack Kirby way. Here's the end result:
It was a really fun class and we may have had one of the best critiques ever in art school history. People from other classes sat in to witness the slew of fanfic comics. And if anyone knows Swamp Thing, I'd appreciate passing this along, I'd really like to show it to them.
