The Periwinkle Assault

In serious news, Imagi Studios has momentarily collapsed, and the Gatchaman movie is now in limbo. The Tetsujin 28 movie is estimated to never, ever come to light, which I find extremely disappointing. Everybody buy an Astro Boy DVD, or Imagi will die. Really.

In happier news, here's the protagonist cast of a thirty-two year old book, and evidence of the first time I've ever drawn a shirtless man...

This is based on a book series by Charles Dennis, which was supposed to span four books but ended halfway. I discovered the second book, The Periwinkle Assault, by accident at the school library in 9th grade. It was enlightening enough for me to get the first book. The only objections to content in either book were how Corporal Ahmed was portrayed with the dreadful "dumb brother" archetype, a few gross jokes, and a masturbation contest. Really.
