I see the Craven name, and I can't help but think of a take on Kraven the Hunter, and the likeliness of meeting up with Spider-Man.

 

Wade:  Suh-suh-suh...Sp-Sp-Sp-SPIDER-Man???  OOOOHHHHHH help!

I love Wade.. >w<
I'm always going to miss the old Garfield show, if only because the new one makes no mention of the US Acres characters like I hoped they would. But I'm still happy with my dvd's and the awesome fanart.

Nice! :D You never see fanart for "U.S. Acres/Orson's Farm." I loved that show when I was a kid. Nice work on capturing Wade's personality here. (I always liked how the duck on his innertube would always mimic his expressions.)

Y'know, Bill Waterson (creator of Calvin & Hobbes) made some nasty remarks about the comic strip version of U.S. Acres, which I thought was a li'l mean, considering Jim Davis (creator of Garfield & U.S. Acres) is a big fan of Calvin & Hobbes. ^^;

Bill Watterson pretty much hates anything mainstream and over-merchandised, such as Garfield, so don't take his hate personally. Retiring Calvin and Hobbes was basically his way of saying "Screw you!" to all the greedy corporate suits who wanted him to sell out.

Perhaps, but he actually did allow them to license a Calander before, actually. (Before he got so angry and his syndicate, and became more anti-merchandising with his comic.) Waterson actually said he wouldn't of hated licensing his comic if his comic strip's syndicate didn't try to pressure him so bad to.

Also Bill Waterson actually is a big "Peanuts" fan, which is very heavily merchandised to. So he isn't against all mainstream or merchandised comics.

Perhaps Bill didn't mind Peanuts because despite all the merchandise, Schulz and his characters maintained their humbleness as far as I'm concerned and didn't resort to putting themselves on any merch that was completely retarded (ie. lame gimmick dolls etc.).

Perhaps, but sometimes I think Waterson did go a a li'l overboard with his anti-merchandising beliefs. (I also felt his remarks about Garfield & U.S. Acres was a tad mean, considering Jim Davis praised Bill's comic "Calvin & Hobbes," and said it was one of his favorite comics. Something I guess Bill wasn't aware of that when he was bashing Jim's comics.)

I can understand Bill's points in the "C&H 10th Anniversary" book, overly merchandising can cheapen something if it's done to much, (and it gave "Poke'mon" a bad rep' so Nintendo eased up on that a bit) but a li'l merchandising isn't to bad.

Though, I think Jim Davis said they did turn down some merchandise that they felt went against Garfield's character, and stuff. So at least they weren't just rubber-stamping every merch proposal.
