Last Good Morning pg 26

NOTES: The whole layout of this page was an intentional callback to page 5 (go take a look!) from the vision of Crunch in the flame like Buzz Bee in the scrying cereal bowl to the frame around the central characters (lucky charms instead of Celtic spoons and bowls). And here we finally see Lucky […]

Last Good Morning pg 11

NOTES: The “sleeping king” is a classic fantasy trope that predates even the Arthurian romances.  So, yeah, it’s good enough for BOTG. Ditto torture scenes. And hopefully a few people get that it’s Boo Berry sneakily leaving the scene in the last panel.  I was never really sure if that was clear enough.

Last Good Morning pg 7

NOTES: Here I finally address the burning question: How do people sleep in a world of perpetual morning?  Why, with sleep masks on, of course! Our debuts of Snap, Crackle and Pop (who, because of the napping scenario and subsequent abduction, I never got to draw wearing their trademark hats).  Snap (Kelloggs’ Rice Krispies cereal) […]

Last Good Morning pg 3

NOTES: Okay, now you know what you’re in for. I get asked a lot if I had (have) any particular dislike for poor Buzz Bee to have disposed of him in such a brutal fashion.  And, to be honest, yeah, kinda.  Basically, I wanted a character to be offed graphically at the very beginning of […]

Last Good Morning Pg 2

NOTES: Our first look at the “big bad” of the series and a personal favorite (as a cereal and a character): Count Chocula (General Mills’ Count Chocula cereal).  Had great fun designing the bat-themed throne and throne room here.  I also gave the suits of armor helmets mimicking Chocula’s unique hairstyle, which you get a […]

Last Good Morning Pg. 1

NOTES: Our first glimpses of Franken Berry (General Mills’ Franken Berry cereal) and Buzz Bee (General Mills’ Honey Nut Cheerios).  Yeah, I know, for the longest time I didn’t know he had a name either.  This will also be the first of many shout-outs to the amazing Topher and his online resource: Topher’s Breakfast Cereal […]
