Yes, it sounds crazy -- and perhaps it is. Maybe that's the whole point. Martin Powell has written, and I am drawing, a Popeye/Mars Attacks crossover one-shot comic book for IDW. We're both huge Segar Popeye fans, so are going into this with much love and respect for the original comic strip -- and will attempt to stay as close to the classic version as possible. We're also both crazy for '50s sci-fi, Wally Wood aliens and the original Mars Attacks trading cards. Martin's script shows that affection -- and I hope my art (now in progress) will do the same. The deadline's tight, and there is much left to do -- so excuse me while I hit the drawing board!!!
