Bugs & Daffy à la Bergman

A while back I did a two-page segment for the Looney Tunes comic that my friend Joey Cavalieri scripted. The sequence was a parody of Ingmar “Chuckles” Bergman’s The Seventh Seal, starring Bugs as Death and Daffy as Antonius Block (AKA Max Von Whythelongface). I went to town and with filters made it look like aged film. It was fun. Here are a couple of panels which (as they all were) ran cropped and covered with dialogue balloons.

    Thanks. I don’t often play with classic characters, so it was neat to do something with Bugs and Daffy, both of whom I love.

    Really, really awesome. Really pulled it off nicely. I’ll have to pick this up. Now let’s see a Tex Avery-esque take on Hour of the Wolf. I nearly did a spit take when I read, “Max Von Whythelongface”.

    Thanks, Brian. Yeah, a David Lynch Eraserhead-esque followup would be fun to do.

    I love it. I wish this were a real cartoon – it’s a natural after “Robin Hood Daffy”. A WB revival that wasn’t aimed solely at kids could really be swell.
