I’ve made three attempts to make my Underworld comic strip into a TV show. Nothing’s panned out. This was my second attempt with Snuff and Creep Rat living above and working in a pet shop. Of course I ripped off the idea from the second season of The Mighty Boosh where Vince and Howard lived above and worked in Naboo’s Nabootique. I decided the concept was way to suffocating for an Underworld cartoon show (even though I’m a fan of Bob’s Burgers). But I kind of liked this page with my ideas. Again, I love my messy, sketchy work. Why don’t I just make these sketches my finished work? Maybe I will.
Order “The Underworld: From Hoboken to Hollywood” the omnibus collection of the very best of the strip’s 23-year run, with annotations, photos, and other surprises from the author (along with a foreword by Mutts creator Patrick McDonnell).
