It’s mash-up tiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiime! *ahem* So mash-ups.
Redbeard is the captain of a pirate ship. Whenever Asterix and Obelix travel by ship they inevitably come across Redbeard and much mayhem ensues (and their ship sinks). Even when the pirates try to go legit, things work against them.
Tomaw gets to close us out as Redbeard. Originally, Tomaw was going to play Unhygienix and Popkin was going to be Redbeard. I was concerned with how I was going to draw a peg leg on Popkin so I switched them. When it came time to draw Redbeard I realized that I had gotten mixed up. Redbeard doesn’t HAVE a peg leg. Popkin’s rounder shape would have been better suited for Redbeard than Tomaw but really Unhygienix is pretty round too so that was going to be a wash either way. Anyway, the beard was trickier on Tomaw because of his muzzle. It is what it is.
That’s the last of the Asterix mash-ups. Next week we begin a whole new theme that’s rich in nostalgia…if you were a kid of the eighties. If not, well, they still look cool. See you next Wednesday for the reveal.
