Meanwhile, Back in Whipstaff Manor...

Here's another blast from my past for  y'all: A story I pencilled for an issue of "Casper and Friends" magazine from 1997. The story was titled, "The Good, the Bad and the Ghostly". In the story (written by the awesome Angelo De Cesare), Casper and his human pals, Kat and Dr. Harvey, travel to an old West ghost town and get into a jam only the Ghostly Trio can bail them out of. I always liked what I did in this sequence, even though I could do a far better job now, and the inks, lettering  and  colors  leave a bit to be desired. That is the peril of freelancing: You don't have a lot of control over such things. That said, I still like the attitudes and expressions on the characters, especially Stretch's on page 2, when he admits that they need Casper. Click on this paragraph to see the first page, then on each subsequent image for a closer look.

So, enjoy! My family and I  are off to visit Harry Potter  in Orlando this week, so no more posts till we return.

Nice. A good mix of scare and suspense and cuteness. I like the 3 different shots of the stagecoach. And the belch. That is some belch.
