Chapter: The Inevitable Death of Sporkman

Characters: Amanda, Sporkman

After the previous strip, it would be almost four months before I'd draw another Sporkman comic. I'm not sure I was burnt out or just busy elsewhere, but I hit a wall. Sometime during those four months, I determined that - if I was to keep drawing little Sporkman comics - I'd have to lose the flashback structure. I need to find a way to get Sporkman into the present.

The solution was simple enough. In the original, ever-so-horrible Sporkman series from 2000 and 2001, our hero was basically killed. In this new series, I decided to just kill him again! Hey, if the chibi strips were supposed to "replace" the old series, then he had to die sometime anyway, right?

Stylistically, the art evolved a little bit during the hiatus, but maybe not enough to be noticeable in these remastered versions.

The strip above is actually the second version of this strip I drew. I discovered the original penciled version in my archives a couple months ago. It doesn't have any dialog, so I couldn't remaster it, but here's the raw artwork I scanned in.

Remastered on July 31st, 2013

About The Comic

Classic Sporkman is a comic by Jodie Troutman, beginning in 2004 as a throwaway reboot of the titular character he created in high school. It's extremely silly, frequently stupid, and the comic's creator absolutely loves it. She hopes you do too.
